Product Overview
Main Features
  • 8-Port USB PS/2 Combo VGA KVM Switch with USB KVM Cables
N/A The GCS1808KITU KVM is a combo VGA switch that includes 8 USB KVM cables (4 x 6ft and 4 x 10ft).

Access and control of up to 64 computers* from a single console (keyboard, mouse, and monitor). As many as 8 additional switches can be cascaded* bringing the total number of connected computers to 64 computers* that can be controlled from a single keyboard-monitor-mouse console. A custom ASIC (patent pending) provides an auto-sensing function that recognizes the position of each station on the installation, eliminating the need to manually set the position with DIP switches. Additionally, the GCS1808KITU features high density SPHD 15-pin instead of the usual 25-pin connectors thus allowing for a compact design and installation in a 1U system rack.

The GCS1808KITU includes one USB port located on the front panel for easy access and sharing of any USB peripherals. Setup is fast and easy; plugging cables into their appropriate ports is all that is needed. The switch supports both USB and PS/2 connections for the console and computers. The GCS1808KITU intercepts keyboard input directly, thus eliminating the need for any software configuration. Switching between computers can be easily accomplished either by manually pressing the front panel push button port LEDs, entering hotkey combinations from the keyboard, or via a menu driven multilingual on-screen display (OSD) system. A convenient auto-scan feature permits automatic scanning and monitoring of activities on all connected.

* Equipped with 8 USB KVM Cables (4 x 6ft and 4 x 10ft)
* Eliminates the excessive expense of additional monitors, keyboards and mice
* Increases office space, productivity, and provides as an energy cost savings solution
* It contributes to a greener environment by reducing the amount of waste generated by multiple components
* An easy / efficient way to organize and streamline a growing or expanding server operation
* Cascade compatible with GCS1716 for control over 128 computers

Product Reviews
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I use this in my rack at work and I havent ever had a problem with it. It will allow you to name ports for easy future console access to servers. December 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by I have one of these for my server room, it is simple and just works. I have been using it for over a year without any issue. January 13, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by This is a simple device that does what it says that it does. It comes with ample cables and hardware for rack mounting. April 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Perfectly I have been looking for an inexpensive KVM that was compatible with USB, PS2, and External Drive. Other KVMs that I have tried to use just had issues with Dell motherboards, Asus, and Intel. For example just simply switching from one pc to another couldn't always get my Keyboard or Mice to work properly. I have had no issues with this KVM. I even have a small test enviorment setup with old Dell servers and new desktop computers. I have no issues at all. This Switch comes with their own cables. That is a huge savings compared to other KVMs that charge 60 per cable. Do the math and you will realize you spent 2000 on cables alone. The interface is flawless and easy to use with out reading the manual. All in all this is perfect for what I needed it for and it seems to work well in server environments. April 30, 2012
