Product Overview
Main Features
  • KVM extender
  • USB
The CE790 is an IP based KVM extender with automatic cable detection (Auto-MDIX) and RS-232 serial functionality that allows access to a computer system from a remote USB console (USB keyboard, monitor, and USB mouse) anywhere on the intranet.

The CE790 improves on previous designs by the addition of an intuitive On Screen Display (OSD) on both the transmitter and receiver units for easy setup and operation; working over a standard TCP/IP LAN via inexpensive Cat 5e cable, allowing point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, and multipoint-to-multipoint administration without the need for an additional KVM switch; and the addition of an RS-232 port, on both the transmitter and receiver units - to connect to a serial terminal for configuration, and serial devices such as touchscreens and barcode scanners.

Product Reviews
ATEN CE 790 - KVM extender is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money. The ATEN CE 790 remote KVM had a lot of promise. I needed a remote display and keyboard about 300 feet from a server and wanted to run this over the existing IP network (as opposed to a hard wired dedicated line). This would require a KVM extender that would work on IP and through multiple switches. This product looked to be the answer to my need. Sadly this is not the case. It actually does exactly what I want... but.... The performance on the network was literally impossible to use. Mouse movements were delayed by 10 seconds and then simply jumped to a new position. Typing was delayed by 3-5 seconds. Assuming I did something wrong I contacted the manufacturer. They suggested trying the boxes locally first. So I connected them together with a 6' cross over cable totally eliminating the network from the equation. It got better. Now the mouse moved in lurches and smaller jumps. Typing was about a half second delay on each character. Had this device been $40 I might have accepted that performance but when you're paying nearly the same as an average PC I expected better results. What it gave me was the same thing I got 20 years ago on a 56K dialup with PC Anywhere. Considering this is a hardware solution and a costly one I expected similar to current network speeds running Remote Desktop. It never even came within a fraction of that performance. Even at a tenth of the price I'd be hard pressed to consider it let alone recommend it. Sorry Aten, but this product really need to be retired.
