Digital KVM switch

This handy little device allows you to control multiple PCs with only one set of Keyboard, Video (monitor) and Mouse — KVM. It’s designed for SOHO users and anyone who needs access to various PCs. This device is available in a two-port or four-port model.

KVMs previously used the analog signal but, now that digital TFT screens have become more prominent in the workplace or home, KVM switches have followed suit. We tested the 849g two-port model which measures 184x143x45mm (LxWxH). It features two sets of PS/2 and (digital) DVI-I ports for connection of the devices, and utilises an LED display and buzzing signal when switching between ports. There is no need to power down the PCs when adding or removing plugs from the switch. There’s no software required, either; selection of the individual PCs is controlled via hot keys on the front of the switch. Additional cables need to be purchased, as they are not bundled with the switch.

The switch supports a maximum resolution of 1600x1200 at 60Hz, and all major operating systems. If you’re looking for a space-saving, power-free switch box to control numerous PC systems, this KVM is hard to pass up for its simple design and high ease of use.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
