Turn any laptop into a console for headless servers, PCs, ATMs, Kiosks and more! StarTech.com's USB 2.0 Laptop KVM Adapter turns your notebook or netbook into a guininely portable server crashcart, eliminating the need to lug around a large, heavy and awkward video screen, keyboard, and mouse. This adapter delivers the VGA stream from any host computer to a laptop and emulates the laptop mouse and keyboard outputs, for simple access and control of connected servers, PCs or other "headless" devices.
With portability for the mobile administrator or repair technician in mind, this self-powered adapter features a small-footprint design that requires no additional accessories to connect to most servers, and requires no server-side software installation. Plus, the pocket-sized adapter draws its power from the server-side connections, allowing the laptop/netbook to last longer without consuming battery power.
Ensuring full control of the connected units, the Laptop KVM Server Console Adapter provides immediate access to the BIOS post and the ability to handle full configuration of the attached PC or machine; administrators can connect to a headless server/device without the need of an expensive LCD rackmount console or bulky monitor, keyboard, and mouse solution.

Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by 5reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best gadget for IT field technician This device is one of the best gadgets I've ever bought. I used to connect to servers using standard monitor, mouse and keyboard. No more messing with vga/power cables to get monitor working. This device saved me already lots of time that I would otherwise waste on finding, connecting and moving monitor. April 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does exactly what it says I bought this a few months ago to help with repairing offline servers. Now I don't have to worry about the KVM, keyboard, monitor or mouse work (or are missing) at the remote site. This also works with Windows 10 August 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I absolutely love this adapter it is just so handy. Easy to set up and use and very convenient as you don't need a monitor. June 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super neat concept and one applicable to more uses than just the server room. I wish there was a photo feature for reviews so I could show it in situ. The device drivers came on a USB thumb drive, which is smart since many ultraportables lack an optical drive nowadays. Windows and Mac and Linux compatible drivers are included. Windows 8.1 watched the installer die and offered to install in Compatibility Mode, which worked perfectly. The software is hardly a UI masterpiece but includes everything I can think of as being important, including a vertical orientation for the toolbar. Since a widescreen notebook display 1280x1024 has lots of side space, this is great for fullscreen mode. The Auto-Fine Tune feature works well to remove the interpolated pixel fuzzys. I've got a Lenovo Twist I'm testing with (has copper GbE, yay!) and the touchscreen passes through to Server 2012 R2 perfectly. I bought my unit at Newegg Business after hearing about it on a Spiceworks thread started to find out "what's in your toolbag?" I can see needing a couple three more of these since I'm not putting mine in the general tech bag, it's going straight into my backpack. I think my Controls guys will want a couple, as well - they deal with headless units all the time. The ONLY downside is the price, but for what it does, I think the price is reasonable, and I sure wouldn't want it to do LESS. Also, came with a PS/2 adapter, seems like a product made by people who really use technology. Now I'm going to install the software on a Lenovo X240! March 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gets the job done, and well. I have been planning on buying this since it was announced and only recently got to it. I have worked in the field for 15 years and consider this (conceptually) to be pretty much the most useful thing in a toolkit after a Phillips screwdriver.The device works really well, I have used it both under Mac OSX 10.9 and Windows 7 at this time, it assists me both in the server room, and at my desk. No longer do I require a dedicated spare Keyboard/Mouse/Monitor at my desk, nor do I need to worry about connecting to our servers that do not have KVM functionality.I have run into a single issue with the device which I suspect is a limitation of Apple hardware, I was unable to activate the boot menu on a Mac Mini using the host, I ended up plugging a keyboard in to trigger the event, still using the NOTECONS01 for Monitor access. For me this was not a deal breaker at all (I did try several things and settings adjustments without success).If you are a technician that plans on using this in the field extensively I would recommend packing a DVI to VGA, as well as a MiniDP to VGA (active) and MiniDP to DP adapter. This will ensure you can connect the device to any display output you are likely to encounter in the field.If you are thinking this will be an invaluable tool for working in the field/datacenter, you will be happy with this products performance.
