    IOGEAR GCS24U reviews

    4-Port USB Cable KVM Switch is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As easy as one, two..and a half Having a multimedia studio requires multi-screen and computing capabilities. A keyboard and other equipment (trackball, tablet, etc.) per computer, made it increasingly impossible to be efficient. I had already installed monitor sharing software for the two MACs and two monitors, but things were dicey when I added a PC to the collection. The 4-Port USB Cable KVM Switch has proved to solve the problem, with the exception of the initial get started directions seemingly different from the other start up directions included within the packaging. I was able, with some experimentation, to finally arrive at a solution to engaging the three computers, but only two of the three extra monitors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so great! At first, like any KVM with integrated cables, it might seem like a box of spaghetti....but don't let that fool you! Once the cables were untangled (probably as much my fault as anyone at the factory!), it hooked up quickly, and the keyboard/mouse were immediately recognized by Windows once plugged into the KVM. The remote switch is especially handy for me, as the computers I'm hooking this up to are 5-6 feet away, and I'd have to get up to change the switched location if it weren't for the wired remote. So long as this lasts longer than the Rosewill unit it replaced, I'll be happy!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good Value KVM I used this product to try to connect 2 desktops and a laptop. The product is easy to set up and the remote switch is very nice. This product would work better I think if all of the connected equipment uses a lower res display such as 800x600 or 1024x768. I have widescreen video cards in two of my computers and this device did not handle the different resolutions very well and the display quality was very poor. Not satisfied, but for what it cost it is acceptable I guess. I would order a model with better video capabilities next time around, even if I have to spend more money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a must I have a number of different operating systems windows, Linux on various computers and I was skeptical about the switch. But I was pleasantly surprised at the ease with which I was able to connect 4 computers. The button to switch between them is small and effective and I am happy that I decided to purchase the 4 port. I have to say if you are thinking about connecting different computers to a single screen, keyboard and mouse this is the answer. The only negative is that the cables cannot be split so if the usb ports and far from the video port it can be a problem.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect KVM for typical setups Works great for sharing a USB mouse and keyboard across up to four systems. Molded in cables make installation a snap, in less than five minutes I had mine connected to four systems. Its small size allows it to fit in an inconspicuous area on your desk. With the remote control you can even place the switch on the floor or behind your desk. My only dislike is that you can only switch the active connection with the remote control -- the device does not support switching via a keyboard sequence. I had assumed that all modern KVM units would have that feature.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from small but well design and powerfull I realize this product might not help everyone but if you have multiple computers and want to share one screen amongst all of them then this is the right product. First of all the pricing at B&H is the best. Second the device it self takes up only 20 sq-inch space on your desk. Third all the cables to connect your computers to the device are pre-built into the device. Fourth and finally the switch button is attached to a 3ft wire comingout of the box which gives more flexibility when deciding the placement of the device.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent switch! Is it the best, no - is it the worst, nope. I've had several, each with its own pros and cons - this one has fewer cons. Pros: reasonable size, dual USB K/M wires, long wire for switching button, decent video. Cons: No keyboard shortcut keys, video could be a bit better. Some people prefer a single USB cable for K/M (uses fewer ports on the computer) - in my particular case, I actually like the extra cable - one of my older computers reacts better to a dual cable layout. One of my previous KVM switches really produced poor video - this one is considerably better - just not quite as sharp as a directly-wired monitor. I'm getting slight shadows on resized graphic images. For everyday use it's more than acceptable - for high-res images, you can do better (for a PRICE).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to setup and use I have two computers in my home office that I use consistently at the same time and was getting tired of two keyboards & two mice. Because of what I'm doing, I don't want to share a monitor so I'm only using the KV part of the KVM. This device is easy to setup and very easy to go between the computers with the remote switch. We bought the 4-port because we wanted expansion capabilities. Right now I actually have 3 computers hooked up because we bought a new desktop and I'm configuring that computer, too. One problem I found was that the switch does not work with my old laptop, a Dell Latitude D620. I am guessing it's a USB issue on the Dell but haven't had time to troubleshoot this problem. I think overall this is a good product and priced well - I would recommend it.
