The KVM

 

With the cables out of the way, it's time to move onto the device. Pulling it out of the box, you notice the length of the unit alongside its overall weight. Looking at the front of the unit, we have the brand again mentioned to the left and below that there is mention of the fact it supports USB 2.0 and surround sound.

The middle of the unit has our two switches which let us switch between our systems in both video only or video and USB.

 

To the right of the unit, we have the model and below that a USB port and two audio jacks; one being a Mic and the other a stereo jack.

 

Flipping the unit to the back, we're greeted by an absolute bucket load of connectors. The very left of the device has our firmware upgrade port, power connector and a single USB port.

Next to that we have our main connection where your monitor, keyboard, mouse and sound setup plug into.

 

Sitting next to that, we have where our main set of KVM cables plug into. Here you plug in your DVI connectors, USB cable and audio cables that then go towards the PCs where they plug into the respective sections.
