    4 Port dekstop KVM

    Can anybody recommend a decent 4 port KVM with cables for desktop use (not servers) VGA/usb would be ideal. I don't want to spend mega money but I need it to be decent.

    Thanks

    Afternoon Tron,

    Here is the one we have at our place, never had any problems with it. The keyboard commands are handy to! Thought it was a nice touch, not sure if all KVM's come with keyboard shortcuts/commands.

    You might be able to find it cheaper if you crawl the internet but I didn't think the price was to bad anyway.

    Thanks

    Liam,

    For note, I do not recommend the D-link KVMs. They won't play nicely with keyboards that are "not 100% standard" - that includes those with multimedia keys and even those with dual function keys. Avoid them.

    I have one of these on my desk for troubleshooting and one on each station in the workshop. They're excellent
