KVM Switch

  britainicus 13:59 01 Jun 2004

I want to run 2 pc's from one monitor/keyboard/mouse. Can anyone reccommend where I can buy a KVM switch at a reasonable price. Most of them seem to want to accept PS2 for mouse adn keyboard but I can't see the point in having a USB mouse and keyboard and then having to use a PC2 converter. To the long and I short I want a KVM converter which supports USB preferably.

Is this the type of thing you are looking for

Dont forget to check cable costs as well.

You can buy a Belkin 2port for £30 with the cables.

I have just recently purchased a KVM switch,it was only £20(manual,not auto)but adding the cost of cables etc pushed the total to nearly £80 and that was just for 2 PC's worth of cabling.I could have gotten the cabling a lot cheaper by buying from outside the area,or a puter fair.I am a bit peeved as the linux PC,everytime I switch to windows box then back,kills the mouse in linux.

These are very cheap and come with all the cables.The 4 port only a few pounds more and i am pleased with it.click here

Realise your preference was not for PS2 - however have a KVM switch from Belkin - never used.

Give away price - make me an offer.
