Belkin KVM Review
Posted on: 11/10/2000 04:23 PM

In the market for a KVM switch? News Forge has whipped up a quick one-pager on the 4-port version of Belkin's Omnicube. We reviewed this switch a while back, so be sure to check our review for comparison. Here's a clip:
Many of the Linux users I know have more than one PC, and most of the time they use them simultaneously. There are several ways to do this. The first, and most obvious, is to have one monitor, keyboard and mouse for each machine. This can be messy and difficult to manage, however. For those short on desk space or who don't want the hassle of switching input devices, there are devices, called KVM (keyboard video mouse) switches, which will run multiple computers off of one set of mouse, keyboard and monitor.
I have personally used KVM switches from Belkin and Linksys, and to tell you the truth, for less money, I'd have to go with the Linksys.
