StarTech.com 2 Port Dual DisplayPort USB KVM Switch w/ Audio & USB Hub is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Frustrating Support about 40 of these and work most of the time but have a high level of failures from keyboard/mouse not working to screens not always detecting. Have to buy several replacements each year. Wish there was an alternative on the market

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can't recommend - way too twitchy and buggy I really should've paid attention to the other reviewers' experiences. I have also found that there's too much magic involved to get my two-PC/two monitor desk setup to work consistently with this thing (I have an HP Z240 desktop, a docked HP Zbook 15 G2 laptop, and a pair of slightly older Philips 240B's). Full disclosure: the cables from KVM to monitors are DP-to-DVI, since they lack DP inputs. Oh, and one laptop dock output is DVI, so there's a powered DVI-to-DP converter, also StarTech, in the mixFunctionally this works as well as other KVMs - a quick keyboard sequence always triggers the one-two switch, and the mouse, another USB peripheral, and audio swap seamlessly, but invariably one monitor or the other will randomly go dark with a "no video input, going to sleep" advisory. No amount of "re-detect monitor" triggering at either PC works. And I've played endlessly with both PC's advanced EDID settings and can't make a difference. It seems like it's more likely to fail the longer I stay at either PC without switching. Though I can eject and redock the running laptop and usually recover on that end.No, too much of a daily hassle. Eventually I'll find a better solution.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very mixed feelings with this... First, let me note I received this item in exchange for an impartial review.That said, please pay attention and know what you want and need before buying this. DisplayPort is NOT HDMI. They look similar but aren't and unless you have DisplayPort, you'll need an adapter which will delay things.Past that, this is as easy to use as any other KVM StartTech offers. It's not a low end KVM. This is serious KVM for people that want and need a professional product.The scenario this solves is simple - Multiple computers, typically a Desktop and a laptop or two towers and one primary monitor, mouse, speakers and peripherals that you want to share with the two computers. Very simple solution to an annoying problem. The construction is really solid as I said above, it's durable and strong, allows some air flow so heat isn't a huge issue and everything fits pretty as well as it could. Unlike the other KVM switches I've got here, this one started out working great and then got really sketchy. I see a few others noted a few problems. I'll just say I've had the same ones almost identical. HOWEVER, it's easily fixed, very intermittent and is seldom a very big problem. To fix it you hit the button twice. Yet it still does seem weird and my only concern is that it seems to have gotten worse over time, the quick fix may not continue working.As long as you know what your components are, understand DisplayPort vs HDMI, have the adapters if you need them, you'll have this thing out of the box and working in a few minutes. I was hoping I had a bad unit until I saw a few other people post about it. Time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product as described. Works good. I would recommend this to anyone with dual monitors and two pc’s. The only issue I had was that Windows 7 kept adjusting the displays when I switched between computers. It was a real annoyance to find all my windows, icons and screen resolutions messed up every time I switched. I finally after about a week of annoyances found a setting in my catalyst control center to disable display polling which fixed the problem for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I get dual monitor on both computers, the audio also switches to the computer I'm working on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Does exactly what I need it to. No muss, no fuss. Took 5 minutes to hook up, and it's worked perfectly ever since.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Frustrating to use, bad keyboard passthrough After installing this, I noticed serious problems typing at normal speeds. This KVM will either drop or transpose characters as you type them, for some peculiar reason. As a consequence, I find myself plugging my keyboard into the machine I wish to use manually, almost defeating the point of having this.Switching between machines will work, but perhaps because they do not feed any information between the machine from which you've switch and the now-missing displays, something seems to get reset, and you find yourself having to fiddle with settings when you return.It does maintain good video quality (otherwise), and not a problem with the mouse.The keyboard issue is serious enough to warrant a 2 star rating instead of the 4 stars I would otherwise give this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Device Been looking after lots of these devices for several weeks now and no end of problems. Problems: have to type each key twice at bios level, screens go blank when lost focus or go into powersave mode. Have to switch PC off/on to get video output again. remote desktop comes inactive at times when trying to connect to remote server, have to close down and reopen. These are just a few of the issues, very poor performance for what should be a simple product.
