Thread: USB KVM
10-23-06, 07:08 PM #1
I need a KVM that will handle my USB mouse and my new USB Keyboard. Any suggestions? only needs to have outputs to two PCs. And actually, it doesn't even need to be a KVM, but rather just a KM since I'll have a different monitor hooked up to each of the two boxes.

IO Gear makes a USB KVM that I have used before. I'd recommend that

I'll check out that one. I also just had another idea. Would I be hurting my performance if I used those USB>PS/2 adapters and just used a regular KVM?

Should work fine. I've done it that way before myself actually. The only problem is if the adapters are loose it could create and issue but if everything fits snug you should be set.

It's basically a software "KM" switch. The two computers will have to be networked, I believe. It is meant to be used for exactly what you want, and it's free. Nothing to lose, so I'd give it a try before you buy anything. It's even cross platform.
