Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product! What a relief. This KVM switch has worked perfectly since I connected it between my laptop and desktop PCs. Switching between one PC and another is smooth and problem-free. What a contrast with the cheap Belkin "Flip" KVM I tried before this one. There was always a delay when switching, and the mouse would halt and "stutter" for several seconds before behaving normally. Sometimes the mouse and keyboard wouldn't work. Then my desktop PC started crashing, making it impossible to boot Windows. As soon as I removed the Belkin KVM, everything was fine. IMHO, you're much better off with this superior product. Nice job, CTG!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from C2G SCORES AGAIN! I WAS NOT SURE ABOUT ADDING MORE CABLES TO AN ALREADY BUSY BACKSIDE BUT CONNECTIONS PROVED SIMPLE AND NO ADDITIONAL CHAOS. NOW I CAN RUN VISIO, PRESONUS STUDIO ONE AND QUICKBOOKS SIMULTANEOUSLY WITHOUT CONFLICT OR LOSS OF PROCESSING POWER. HIGH FIVE TO THE GUYS WHO CREATED THIS OPTION!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from well worth the money! Best invention ever! This switch makes it so easy to work both PC's without the use of two monitors. The USB connection makes the ps2 obsolete!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use with Projector in Classroom We have a classroom where we have a In-focus projector connected to the installed PC. However we often have guest speakers that come with their own laptops. Previously they would disconnect the desktop cable to connect to their laptop. Now with the Trulink™ 2-Port VGA and USB Micro KVM with Audio switch we can have a cable on the desktop for the laptop and we no longer have to mess with the connections to the PC that never got reconnected. Thanks for this inexpensive tool during this tight budget season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ham Radio Use I found that using the KVM along with multi output video cards, I can watch several of my radio control operations efficiently.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

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)?
Asked by: Qays
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.

I have one of the Micro KVM but I have lost the documentation. What is the key combination to switch between the 2 computers? Thank you.

Asked by: Mike
The hot key to switch between computers is pressing the Scroll Lock key twice.

Debian Mint Ubuntu Linux compatible? Is there a wireless alternative? How do I switch PCs are their manual buttons or function keys etc.? Does it require a wall electrical outlet plug in to?

Asked by: Anonymous
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.

When you switch, do you hear the USB unplug/plug sounds (hub-based) or does the switch constantly emulate a generic keyboard and mouse so the computers aren't aware of any switching (emulated)?

Asked by: asanarama
You hear the USB plug on the first connection. After that initial connection, you would not hear the USB plug/unplug sounds.

The default switch hotkey is double tapping scroll lock, however, is there any way to reprogram the hotkey? Certain keyboards no longer have a scroll lock key.

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

Does this KVM switch work with a USB hub or must the keyboard and mouse be the only devices on that particular port? Thank you for your assistance.

Asked by: jr
This KVM would only work with a mouse and keyboard.
