    IOGEAR GCS1102 reviews

    GCS1102 2-Port USB DVI KVMP Switch with Audio and Cables is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best KVM Switch! I have 3 computers. All are running 24/7. My main rig (email/word processing etc)has it's own dedicated monitor but my other 2 which are the faster machines are my photographic server and processing rigs. As I only need to see my photo server display occasionally, I decided to use a KVM switch. I had a Belkin (VGA) switch which I tried. That really was a piece of junk. So I bought this one (from B&H) and it was a breeze to install and so far has performed flawlessly. I have had no problems with Windows 7 updates as reported by another reviewer. Yes it is a little expensive but, guess what, you get what you pay for (most of the time!)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works even better than expected - ! Works just as easy as making the connections. Windows 7 - no problem. Short cut keys ( quick double tap of scroll then enter- and you switch between the two computers. You can have one set of speakers for both computers (the cables are built in). AS long as you have one connector to go from the monitor to their box ( same for keyboard and mouse) you are set. I am using DVI - and one computer is XP, the other is Win 7. I like the fact that it has it's own power supply. And if you use a master switch, you can put the power supply with that. My master switch goes to a UPS, so no worry there. Use it, you'll like it - and the one question I had was answered promptly by their tech support after a morning phone call. Couldn't ask for more.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works but hangs Windows 7 when.. This is an update to my previous review. Most of the time, I use this product on my Mac systems. However, yesterday, I've been trying to install system updates on my Window 7 system which I also have installed on my MacPro (using Bootcamp). Every time I tried to run updates for Windows 7, the system would hang. Since I never had issues with Windows 7 before I installed the IOGear DVI DVMP switches, I disconnected the switches and plugged the monitor and keyboard/mouse directly to the computer and the updates worked without a problem. Plugging the switches back in brought back the problem again. So, at this point, I'm installing all the Windows 7 updates before I plug the switches back on again. Good thing I don't use the Windows 7 system that much and do updates to it even less often.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this KVM Switch I use this product at home and also connect my office laptop when home. I use this with the Logitech Wireless K 800 Keyboard and the M705 Wireless mouse. It took me a while to make all of this work but it works like a charm. The only thing I do not like is that I cannot toggle from one computer to another using my Wireless Keyboard as the emulation does not work and need to physically use the switch in front of the KVM switch to switch between m/c's. Apart from that I love everything else about it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Solid Device I built a second machine for playing around with Linux and Windows 8, and wanted a 2 port KVM. This is a nice one. The switching has been problem free so far. I like that additional USB devices can be hooked to the KVM so that they follow me to the machine I am working on. The cables are also nice and long - so no problem with putting the unit on the desk. No real complaints I can think of. Nice KVM that keeps out of the way until it is needed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional KVM Switch I use this kvm switch to go between two desktop computers. One has all of my personal business info and programs, the other is my expermental computer. The reason I give this switch 5 stars is that in works perfectly with my Logitech MX5500 Blue Tooth keyboard/mouse combo. I had problems with other switches being able to use both the keyboard and mouse. I have not found a bad thing about this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wouldn't switch to another switch Rather than clutter up my work area with an array of monitors for my two workstations this KVMP switch allows me to jump from one to another as needed. I might be editing video on one while a CGI animation is rendering on the other. It's a great way to work.My wireless Logitech keyboard/mouse USB receiver stick just plugs into one of the two backside peripheral ports (not the front ports that are for wired keyboards and mice)and your off to the races. This is something that is not really explained anywhere in the sparse documentation that accompanies the item.A nice feature is to be able to momentarily take a peak at the screen activity of computer B without really taking over true control and then go back to your main business on computer A - all by how long one holds down the switching switch on the unit.Well built, perhaps overly well built, in a handsome metal case. Nice item.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from one monitor two computers I wanted to use my monitor for an intel Macbook Pro and a PowerPC Mac desktop. This DVI switch is doing what I wanted. It is easy to go from one computer to another. In my case many use the desktop and I am the only one using the Laptop. I am also using wireless mouse and key board for the laptop, while the desktop is connected by usb.
