There was problem with the mouse movement, so i called D-Link they said i have to change the set up on my computer BIOS, then i called one of the computer stores here & they told me D-Link has this problem, so I changed it with Starview , works perfect.

Does the advertised, but poorly April 22 2008
By F. Barbosa - Published on
I had the same issues as the above reviewer. This performs bad in almost every aspect:

1) Video: Reduces the quality of the image, also adding flickering;

2) Keyboard: Doesn't recognize my G15 Gaming Keyboard... it works as a generic keyboard instead, no macros nor LCD;

3) Mouse: Performs adequately here;

4) Audio: It adds significant noise even at low volumes;

My suggestion? Wait for the DVI KVMs to get cheaper.

This switch would not work and Dlink has no support for it... Dec 21 2006
By Mr. Andy Mittal - Published on
tried with 3 different keyboards but it would not work. I wasted all day just trying to get it to work. And I am not illiterate, I am an engineer. Called DLINK 6 times and wasted another 3 hours they could not and would not help me. Low priority item? Probably. No solutions? Likely. Try to buy Belkin or something else, save lots of hassle.

KVM Dec 20 2006
By M. Valvano - Published on
This USB KVM did not let my keyboard hotkeys (shortcuts) work through it.

D-link support said it will not.

crap product...crap support March 9 2007
By wilhelm808 - Published on
I bought this KVM because I was under the impression you could connect any combination of PC/Mac (with USB keyboard and mouse, of course) and I hooked up my G3 and G4. At first, I tried with the mouse still running into the USB port on the keyboard as usual. This did not work. I shut down both computers, ran the mouse into the KVM, re-booted, and this still didn't work. I then noticed the keyboard was not working on either computer. I e-mailed D-Link and the response I got was, "It appears your keyboard and mouse are not compatible." It appears? It appears I'm going to tell everyone what a piece of crap this product and your service are.

Granted, I was planning on buying a different mouse and I may still try to use this KVM, but I've got a feeling I'll end up buying the Connectpro KVM that everyone is going on about.

Mediocre at best Nov. 20 2010
By Alain Vandendorpe - Published on
This product is mostly functional. That's the best thing I can say about it: the selection button does indeed swap the output destination.

Now, negatives on the other hand...
- The audio passthrough noticeably degrades the quality even though I have far from golden ears
- The USB ports introduce all the issues associated with antiquated first-generation USB hubs e.g. keys locking in after having been released, noticeable frequent lag for both keyboard and mouse, eats the occasional keypress (particularly modifier keys or repeated keys, e.g. the second S in 'press')
- Fairly loud internal beeper every time you press select.
- Intercepts Scroll Lock for the keyboard-based swap - which doesn't actually work.
- The box itself is light, attached cables are far heavier, so it'll rest at about a 20 degree angle, weighted towards the back.
- Because keyboard shortcuts don't work, you'll have to keep this where you can reach it, which probably means on top of your desk. Enjoy the many extra cables!

Overall, this is only good for machines which see very occasional use. If you have exactly two server towers in a corner and want to minimize the peripherals to manage them, this is perfect. But if you thought as I did that it'd make a good low-cost alternative to a laptop dock for your workplace, think again. You'll just be rolling out the welcome mat for several annoyances.
