GCS102U - MiniView 2 Port USB KVM Switch - IOGEAR
Iogear offers the GCS102U 2 Port USB KVM Switch, and what is truly different about this unit is that it offers only USB support. The GCS102U is the only unit that we tested that did not offer any PS/2 support.
While offering only USB support in a KVM product is a new idea, let's see how well the GCS102U stacks up against the other KVM units in this review.
|Number Of Computer Controlled||2|
|PS/2 Keyboard & Mouse Support||No|
|Max Video Resolution Supported||1920x1440|
|Keyboard Switching Supported||No|
|Auto Scan Support||No|
|Cables Included||Yes - 2 cables included for both the VGA and USB connection.|
|Warranty||3 Year Limited Warranty|
The first noticeable feature of the GCS102U is its size: it is small, coming in at about 4.5" x 2" x 1.5". It is the smallest of all of the KVM units that we tested. The GCS102U included two open areas that were molded into the bottom of the GCS102U, which allows this unit to be wall mounted it desired, a nice feature.
The design of the GCS102U is unique in the fact that this unit includes the input for both the USB keyboard and Mouse on the front of the unit. The unit is a powered unit and requires the use of the included 5V power supply.
