OmniView SOHO 2-Port KVM Switch With Audio PS/2 and USB Platform - F1DS102T - Belkin Components

OmniView Soho 2-Port KVM

Besides having one of the longest names for any product that I have ever seen, Belkin enjoys the position of being a leader in the KVM market. Belkin has been building KVM units in one form or another since 1995. All of this experience does not go to waste, as Belkin has developed some of the best-known KVM units in their OmniView product line. Belkin claims that they have over one million OminView KVMs in use today.

The OmniView SOHO 2-Port KVM Switch with Audio PS/2 and USB Platform or the F1DS102T, as I prefer to call it, is a radical departure from more traditional KVM units. This unit accurately aims at the SOHO or the computer professional who have the need for a KVM.

The first thing that you will notice when looking at the F1DS102T is the unit's odd shape. It is oval shaped, stands up vertically, and fits into a "Star Trek" shaped base -- very high tech looking, unlike any other KVM unit in this review. When Belkin designed the F1DS102T, they chose a unique design that, in my opinion, better addresses the needs of the user than any other KVM units before it.

The main reason for the new shape is an advanced cable management strategy which directs all of the cables out of the back of the unit using a removable cable shroud. The cable shroud snaps in place on the back of the unit in such a way that the cables stay organized, out of the way, and hidden from view. I found this to be a more unique cable solution than any of the other KVM units that we tested, and personally really helpful.
