Take control of two PCs and free your desktop from clutter with our 2-Port VGA and USB Micro KVM with Audio. This powerful, compact KVM solution provides everything you need to control two PCs from a single USB keyboard/mouse, monitor, and speaker set. Fully integrated, single-jacket, six foot cables attach to your PCs to eliminate tangles and provide a neat, clean appearance. The small footprint of the switch makes it ideal for desktop applications.

The 2-Port VGA and USB Micro KVM is small in size but provides big box functionality. It supports video resolutions up to 2048 x 1536 pixels while providing full keyboard and mouse emulation to prevent system lockups. The auto scan function monitors computer operation; built-in 3.5mm speaker jacks support audio for multimedia applications.

With no software required, installation is hassle-free; simply connect the cables and power up! Hot key functionality enables you to switch from PC to PC without ever taking your hands off your keyboard. The KVM's LEDs deliver easy status monitoring as they clearly indicate which system is selected.

It was great until it stopped working

KVM worked great for a couple months and then lost the keyboard side USB and will not switch between computers. Would buy another but afraid it would not last.

              A:

              This KVM cable is not compatible with Debian Mint Ubuntu Linux. We do not carry a wireless KVM at this time. With this KVM switching PCs would be done with the use of 'hot keys.' This cable gets its power from the USB connections and does not require an external powe source.

          • 2-Port VGA and USB Micro KVM with Audio

            Q:

            I have a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse, using a unifying receiver.
            Connecting the receiver to the mouse port on this KVM allows both the mouse and keyboard to function. Connecting it to the keyboard port on the KVM does nearly nothing.
            After mapping the switch to use ctrl+ctrl with a different keyboard, connecting this to the keyboard port allows switching with ctrl+ctrl but no other typing or mouse functions. Having it in the mouse port, everything but switching with any key combo works.
            Do you have any recommendations or possible solutions to use this KVM fully with my wireless combo (and not an extra keyboard on my desk for switching)?

              A:

              The KVM will not work with wireless keyboards and wireless mice. You will need a wired keyboard and mosue in order for it to function properly.

              You can change the hotkey sequence to tapping the CTRL key twice. You would do this by pressing Num Lock + (-), then hit letter (t).
