    KVM Rack Console

    Good morning to you all from foggy Hull,

    I am wondering whether anyone knows where I can get hold of (a dirt cheap) rack mount KVM Console ? I seem to find them at like 600-700 a piece and thats quite a bit to spend on a KVM.

    Anyone know anywhere as cheap as chips ?

    Has anyone got one they want rid of ???


    Thanks in Advance,

    Hope everyone has a relaxing Friday!!


    Kind Regards.

    Actually - scrap that. I seem to be missing half of it.

    Ask @CPLTD or @Millgate. They have given me good prices in the past

    Not sure whether this might be of any use: Rackmount Monitor Kit - PS/2 & USB

    It's a KVM rack drawer where you supply the monitor yourself and it's a cheaper option if you've got a spare one kicking about or can source one fairly cheap.

    I bought a Compaq 8 port from ebay for about £40 with cables. Solid bit of kit and they do a 4 port version.

    Yeah its the monitor, keyboard and mouse rack console I'm after.... I have 4U left in a 42U rack, and unfortunately some of our kit requires a physical server and at present I have a monitor etc stood on the floor - I'll do some digging see what I can find. I was looking at the £100 mark.

    Ta everyone.

    @cpjitservices

    How many ports do you need ?

    USB or PS2 or Both ?

    Do you want a console drawer ( KVM, KB and Mouse in 1U) ?

    New or second hand ?

    Happy to help you with the hunt !

    All in one would be good, has to be a rack drawer as I dont have room in my rack.

    Thats the kind O' thing I'm looking for, preferably USB.


    TIA all.

    Sounds great, but I dont think it's what I'm looking for.

    Thanks for the offer though.

    No problem, so its just the keyboard/mouse and monitor drawer you're after then?
