Product Reviews
Tripp Lite 16-Port 1U Rackmount KVM Switch w/ VGA, USB/PS2 & OSD is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great KVM, best part is the added module for KVM over Cat6 I needed a solution to allow me to have a remote KVM in another room - without having to put another computer and do KVM over IP. This unit supports the extender unit that allows you to put a keyboard mouse and monitor in that other room location something like 500ft away and works great as if being attached to a KVM in the same room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great switch We have had the KVM switch for several years and it has worked flawlessly. Setup was very straightforward. The user manual is laid out very logically and is easy to follow. The USB/PS2 connections were a major selling point for me as I have some equipment that still uses PS2 ports. Having the PS2 connections built into the cable is much more reliable than having an adapter plugged in the end of the USB cable. I have been very satisfied with the switch and would buy it again.
