The B040-008-19 NetController 8-Port Console KVM switch is a cost effective and highly flexible system for controlling multiple computers from a single keyboard, monitor and mouse. Directly connect up to 8 computers, or increase the number of connected computers to up to 248 by daisychaining up to 15 B042-Series KVM switches. Switch between connected computers via Pushbutton, On Screen Display (OSD), or Hotkey commands. Connect computers to the KVM using a Tripp Lite P780-Series USB/PS2 Combo KVM cable kit. Cable kits come with both USB and PS/2 connectors, allowing you to connect to either a USB or PS/2 computer without the need to purchase additional cables or adapters. Additional VGA and USB ports are located on the back panel of the unit, allowing for the connection of an external VGA monitor and USB keyboard or mouse, or a Tripp Lite B051-000 IP remote access unit.
Password feature provides additional security to prevent unauthorized access to connected computers. Rackmount hardware is included with the unit, and is designed for easy, one person installation. Fits into any rack from 27 to 42 inches deep, and can be installed in a 2-post rack using Tripp Lite's B019-000. Compatible with all major operating systems.

Comments about Tripp Lite NetController 8-Port Rack-Mount Console KVM Switch w/19-in. LCD:

I've had other rackmounted KVM monitor devices from other vendors that I've paid much more for, that didn't work as well as this one. Simple to set-up, just connect the right wires to the devices you want to connect and boom, you're done. I've had absolutely no problems with this device. I would absolutely recommend this device to my colleagues.

Comments about Tripp Lite NetController 8-Port Rack-Mount Console KVM Switch w/19-in. LCD:

I have found that this KVM switch works quite well, the only thing that is a bit annoying is that the USB mouse I have connected sometimes just stops working, but then I just unplug the mouse and plug it back in and it is working fine. This does not happen all the time just every now and then. The only other issue I have is that some times the auto adjust does not cooperate very well and some of my screens are to high to low or off to the right. Usually I just unplug power from the unit for a moment and plug back in and I am good to go.

Comments about Tripp Lite NetController 8-Port Rack-Mount Console KVM Switch w/19-in. LCD:

Very intuitive to set up and use. Couple of minor issues. Screen was a little too bright. Caused a bit of resolution loss. Had to run CD/Owners Manual to figure out how to change the title per port. Otherwise it's highly recommended.
