I am looking for a solid KVM switch (DVI/USB 4 Port), I have a Belkin now 4 port ps2/analog. But I need a DVI/USB 4 Port switch. I have 4 systems to hook up to it. They are laptop "USB/Analog", PC1 "USB/Analog", PC2 "USB/Analog", and the last PC is "DVI/USB". Keyboard is Microsoft wireless PS2/USB, Monitor is DVI. I have looked around for last few days and have read reviews on several but they all say there either straight digital (DVI) or straight analog never a mix or say DVI with backward compatibility. Also some come with cables and some do not, also some with or with-out power supply. I was looking at choice one below and then using some analog to DVI convertors. Not sure if it is the best or if it will even work.
Can someone help me out here on finding a few that are and do a solid job. As it is now I have to constantly unplug the keyboard from the Belkin every time I switch from PC to PC. So need to get something better that works solid. Plus on a small Analog now and when I get the new DVI KVM I can use my large DVI display LCD.
Here are a few of what I have looked at so far:
IOGEAR GCS1764 4-Port DVI KVMP Switch USB Console, USB Peripherals, Audio
StarTech SV431DVIUA 4 Port StarView DVI USB KVM Switch with Audio
Any question please ask. Thanks
