Easily switch ports using the On-Console push buttons, On Screen Display (OSD) or keyboard hot key commands. Control PS/2 or USB computers/servers using P774-Series (PS/2) and P776-Series (USB) KVM Cable kits. Includes an extra HD15 and (2) PS/2 ports on the rear of the unit, which allows for connection of a Tripp Lite B051-000 IP Remote Access Unit or an external console.

Comments about Tripp Lite 8-Port NetDirector 1U Rackmount Console KVM Switch w/17" LCD:

This console is one of the best I've used. It's well made, tough and easy to use. I have a cage with 7 servers and this does the job nicely.
