KVM100SK - KVM 2-Port Switch Kit - Linksys
Linksys is probably better known to most users for its networking products, such as Linksys NIC cards and CABLE/DSL routers, than for its KVMs. Linksys started selling their line of KVM products some time ago.
While the Linksys KVM products might not be as popular as some other KVM manufacturer's KVMs, they do have the advantage of low cost. The KVM100SK is one of the least expensive KVM units that we tested. Instead of going toward new features, Linksys has stayed its course with known basic functionality.

When looking at the KVM100SK, understand that the KVM100SK is built for the budget-minded user. This does not mean that the KVM100SK doesn't have something to offer, it means that the functionality offered isn't at the level of some of the newer KVM units in our test.
The KVM100SK is a two-port PS/2 only design. The KVM100SK includes no support for USB. The KVM100SK is also compact. It is only 5.0" x 3.9" x 1.3", which makes it the second smallest unit in our review. The KVM100SK does not have anything on the bottom of the unit to make it wall mountable.
One of the main advantages of the KVM100SK is that the price of the unit does include a complete set of professional grade four-foot cables. These cables are molded together to help reduce the cabling mess normally associated with KVM units. The connectors on the cables are colored to match the input connectors on the back of the user's PC for faster installation.
