    Black Box KV9702A reviews

    ServSwitch 2-Port DT DisplayPort KVM Switch with USB and Audio is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from excellent displayport switch It's probably the only displayport kvm switch that really works! My previous Iogear switch stayed on my desktop for only two hours. That thing costs $ and it can't even switch mouse correctly, not to mention displayport video...This switch works right away once switched, wireless mouse, keyboard and video for win7 systems. Only got 4 starts because it appears to disconnect video for nonconnected input for MacBook Pro, that lengthen the reconnect time. But it happens on my other reliable Iogear DVI switch too, Not sure if that is Apple's OS problem...It also did something weird to USB device, my work win7 laptop has to restart to use usb headset if it is not connected at boot time, very inconvenient, I need to connect one direct usb extension cable just to use usb headset. This does not happen to any KVM switch I ever owned before.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pricey for its featureset The all metal construction on the ServSwitch DT DisplayPort KVM is excellent, the unit has some heft which is nice, since a mess of cables will get plugged into the back. It's well labeled, and the port layout is sensible. While the ServSwitch DT has a few advantages over the ATEN's CS782DP 2-port KVM switch, namely build quality, 2 more USB ports, mic support and hot-key functions, the ServSwitch DT is more expensive and lacks support for 3840x2160 @ 60Hz displays. I prefer ATEN's remote switch button, which lets me hide the KVM (and any cable mess). The extra ports enable support for gaming keyboards (typically require more than 1 USB port), which is great. Some experimenting may be required to figure which USB connector is the HID channel. I could not seem to get hot key switching to work with my Corsair mechanical keyboard, but it did work with a single USB plug keyboard. Device emulation makes the connected PCs see the mouse, keyboard and display despite switching. Mouse and keyboard emulation seemed to work fine. DisplayPort emulation doesn't seem to be present. When you switch PCs, you are effectively disconnecting/reconnecting the display from the PC, the same as though you manually moved the cable. Display hotplug events cause issues when 3D accelerated applications are running, not to mention the annoyance of windows moving around on their own. While the SwitchServ DT took care of my 1920x1080 @ 120Hz EIZO display, it ungracefully failed on my ASUS PQ321T 4K MST display (two 1920x2160 @ 60Hz displays daisy-chained together from one DisplayPort cable). After a lengthy wait, half the screen would fill, blank, tear, blank and repeat. It would have been nice if one of the display links had worked, as the device is supposed to support the necessary pixel clock. All in all, it's not a terrible device. But if you don't need your KVM to switch your microphone, and you can live with only 2 USB devices being switched, ATEN's CS782DP has better display support and is a little less expensive.
