KVM100SK - KVM 2-Port Switch Kit - Linksys, Continued

The KVM100SK itself is pretty easy to operate. It includes one big blue button on the top of the unit that is used to switch between PCs. The top of the unit also provides a lighted indicator on the top of the unit to show you which PC you are using.

Back View KVM100SK

As you can see from the picture above, the inputs for the unit are on three specific sides of the KVM100SK. The front of the KVM100SK is for PC 2, the rear of the KVM100SK is for PC 1, and the side is for the monitor, PS/2 Keyboard, and PS/2 pointing device/mouse.

As you can imgine with a layout such as this, there are cables running everywhere and every direction. The KVM100SK makes it more difficult to control the cabling than any of the other units we reviewed. You almost always will have to bend at least one or two of the cables, which is a disadvantage. I could better understand the positions of these inputs if Linksys would have offered a bracket to allow the mounting of the unit on a wall, but this isn't an included feature. Sitting on top of a desk, the layout of the cables in the KVM100SK can became a cabling nightmare very quickly.

I found the manual and packaging of the KVM100SK to be average. The included manual included no pictures to help the user get the unit connected. This might not be important to an experienced user, but could pose a big challenge to a novice user.

Overall, the KVM100SK is a very "plain jane" unit with limited functionality. It performed well in our testing and we didn't encounter any problems during our use. If you are looking for a unit that will not break the bank, and you don't need or want USB support, the KVM100SK is a great value for the money. Also, the included professional grade cables really make this unit a true value. The KVM100SK works, and that is the important thing, but you do not get the bells and whistles of other KVM units at this price point.
