Replaced our old HP KVM switch with this Tripp Lite NetDirector. It was very easy to install and setup. The screen looks crisp and clear on all 5 devices. Fast and responsive switching between devices, and easy to tell what is on and active. I only have two small issues with it - opening the lid is a two handed operation since it is extremely tight and I wish the UI wasn't out of the 80's. Both are more preferences than anything else, but these would make this thing near perfect. Definitely a good buy so far and willing to purchase again.
I have been building server racks for about three years now and my company has always ordered another brand of KVM (Advocent.) After experiencing many issues with the other brand, I was asked to find a new KVM for use in the future. I've had this one for about 1 month now and it has been better in every way. It comes as one piece so there is no assembly required. It responds very quickly when cycling through the servers and cycling is as easy as pressing one button. The display is big and clear and the unit locks into the rack with two spring loaded latches, which is much nicer than the thumbscrews I'm used to that never work right. The only problem I have, and this might just be me, is that the cycle controls feel backward. I use the thing every day and still find myself cycling the wrong way constantly (This is a very minor inconvenience though because, as I said before, cycling is very easy anyway.) All in all, it has been very easy to work with so far and I have recommended this product for future use.
