    IOGEAR GCS1644 reviews

    4-Port Dual View Dual-Link DVI KVMP Switch with Audio is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Agree with other Reviewers This is the best KVM that I have ever owned. It works very well for two monitors. I game with it and I do not notice any video or audio degradation. Computers boot better on this kvm than any other kvm that I have owned in the past. Hotkey switching has worked perfectly after getting a wired keyboard; wireless keyboards are not supported. It is a large unit and it is under my computer table. I have never had to reach under the table to correct this kvm. I like it a lot and recommend it for anyone who wants to switch computers via two monitors. I did buy this at BH Photo and am happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great product I work with two Kubuntu 12.04 Linux workstations continuously connected, and a Windows 7 employer's Lenovo 530 laptop that I connect every evening on returning home and disconnect every morning when heading to work (via a Lenovo docking station continuously connected). My monitors are dual Dell 3007 2560x1600 dual-link DVI, keyboard Avant Stellar (PCI connector via USB adapter), with a Microsoft wireless mouse. When using the laptop, I can use its screen in addition to the two Dells. I can switch among these seamlessly. I even have the less-used Linux workstation normally sleeping, as it wakes up properly as soon as I select it. A nice touch is that one Dual-Link DVI cable of each pair has the USB and audio cables integrated into it, keeping the wiring rat's nest manageable. The only annoyance is that, inevitably, because the external monitor configuration for the Windows 7 Lenovo 530 at the office differs, I need to reposition some windows when moving between home and office. But once I got the Windows configuration set up properly, the laptop at least automatically recognizes which monitor configuration it's connected to. (Because the DVI outputs of the Lenovo docking station are single-link, it's necessary to use its HDMI outputs and interpose Accel HDMI to Dual DVI converters between it and the MiniView.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I have a laptop docking station (display port, dvi) and a PC (dvi, dvi) connected to the switch. the switch is then connected to one monitor via dvi, and the other via a dvi-hdmi cable. My docking station requires an adapter for the display port. I am having no issues switching between the two. The PC and laptop goes to sleep just as it did before using the switch.� One thing that is a bit odd is the monitor that is connected via the dvi-hdmi cable will randomly come on even if neither the PC or laptop is on. Not a big deal, I just turn the monitor off when I am done using it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Dual Monitor KVMP from Best Seller I purchased this device after a lot of research, because I wanted a good KVMP that I could use to swap between 4 computers, some of which support Dual Monitors. The device is top notch, included a full set DVI/Audio/USB connections to/from the computers. I highly recommend B&H as the source, which was the cheapest when I bought - they delivered ahead of schedule and communicated well throughout the transaction. I will buy again from B&H.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, but has a few small issues Connected to two Dell U2311H screens - without any issue. If you have a wireless dongle used for both the mouse & keyboard, you might have the issue of not being able to use the hot keys, as the mouse doesn't work good when the dongle is connected to the keyboard USB port. The product is actually an ATEN product (that's the USB ID being reported to the computer). The mouse emulation mode doesn't work good with new model mouse (mine is Microsoft Wireless Mouse 5000).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome! Works perfectly as it should. I gave it a 4 because I wish it wasn't so expensive.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Typically Excellent IOGear Product With two 24 1920x1200 monitors, I use this to switch between a Linux computer and a Mac Mini, both of which run dual displays, and a Dell Windows 7 laptop using just one display. One thing that I didn't realize it could do when I ordered it, but has proven to be very handy, is the ability to switch the audio, USB and KVM functions separately as well as together. It's a small thing, but still is very nice if I'm working back and forth between two machines and listening to music from one of them. You can switch in a round robin fashion or to a specific machine. My Logitech keyboard inconveniently omits the scroll-lock key most commonly used by KVM switches as the hot key, but you can reassign the hot key to be two control key presses.This switch is large, so make sure you have enough room for it. I mounted it to the underside of my desk. No brackets were provided or available, so I made my own and took advantage of the threaded holes for 3mm screws that are already present on each end.The attached photos show how I mounted it under my desk and a closeup of the bracket I made. This was before I neatened up the cables.The only possibly negative thing I can say is that occasionally when I switch to my Linux machine the mouse doesn't work, but a quick switch away and back always fixes it. I did have to disable the mouse emulation as well, but this has not had any negative side-effects.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clears desk clutter nicely Plugged in and started very nicely on a Win 7 and Ubuntu 18 box and will shortly connect to a Win 10. I was a bit concerned at first since the instructions make it look like it Must have 2 monitors. It worked nicely with 1 at present and will give me the ability to expand. Cables are a tad short - about 4 feet, which makes planning where it goes a bit tricky for me. (About 2 more feet would have been perfect.) The specs about "able to switch audio/video separately" are a bit overblown. Normal button pushes do all at once. You have to enter specific patters of multiple button pushes to switch only one item at a time. Not particularly useful in most situations. Same note applies to the USB switch. (I have not tried that yet - not sure how you switch a usb thumb drive without un-mounting it first.) Overall it's a rugged, well built KVM. One of the few that reliably handles both Windows and Linux.
