NO MORE CLUTTER GREAT PRODUCT. EASY INSTALLATION. EASY SETUP. THIS PRODUCT IS A NO BRAINER! July 8, 2013
Great product, great price This was one of the simpliest installs of this type of product I have come across in a while. Works great with newer and older servers. January 29, 2013
Ease of Use 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. January 14, 2013
Great product I have been using this console since June. I am very pleased with it's performance and with customer support when I had a question about the setup. December 8, 2011

On one connected server, the red LED is solid (showing connectivity) however when I use the push-button to select that server, a rapidly-blinking green light appears, and the KVM does not enable for that server. All other servers work properly, and show a solid green light when selected.
