Starview SV421USB KVM - "KVM For The Masses?" Review
« on: March 02, 2004, 11:00:10 AM »
I've posted up a review of the bargain StarView SV421USB Server Sharer KVM Switch over here.  It is a cost-effective way to share a keyboard, video, mouse and two other USB devices.  Very cool stuff.  Here's a clip:

It wasn't that long ago when a KVM was a tool that only the hardcore computer technician could afford. Today, many computer enthusiasts can benefit from KVM's, but the functionality and cost of a KVM can still be called into question. We are going to look at a KVM from StarTech, that comes barebones, but at a price most anyone could afford. Enter the SV421USB KVM. . .

Please feel free to post your thoughts, comments & questions.

It's a sweet unit for sure.  A few other members have one too I think.  It's mounted to my desk and awefully handy for sure.  Probably some of the best $35CDN I've spend in a long time. . . at least on computer gear.
