KVM switches: Buying guide

Buying guide for KVM switches helps users buy quality and useful products as they make informed choices. KVM stands for Keyboard, Video and Mouse and has been in use for the sophisticated management of computers and servers.

KMV switch

KVM switch is a kind of hardware unit which is used to control various computers from a single keyboard, video monitor and mouse. Although, officially KVM claims to provide effective management of multiple computers, a pragmatic view is that, at one time it can control only a few computers.

Wide range of KVM switches

Besides direct control, KVM switches also offer remote-operated KVM. Depending upon the number of users, KVMs are divided into two types: the first one is Single-user and the second is Multi-User. Whereas a single-user switch allows a single user share and monitor devices on several computers, multi-user switch allows several users to administer all computers. The most famous brand consists of Belkin kvm switches.

Modus operandi and advantages
Usb KVM Switches buying guide helps buyers in deciding about the best possible solutions when they are buying one. Once a KVM switch is connected to the computer, mouse, keyboard and monitor, it becomes easy to manage various computers at the same time.

However, buy a KVM switch which is compatible only to a particular operating system. In order to share access to a monitor, buyers can use a KVM switch, which supports the video resolution output of the monitor. A word of caution to buyers, is that they should avoid a KVM switch which if shared, does not support the monitor refresh rates and resolution.

Some negative aspects
There aren't many issues with KVMs, except the compatibility one. Buyers need to know whether they are buying a KVM that works with a mix of platforms, for example, PCs and Sun-based servers or not.

Depending upon one's need, KVM is essential as it can save a lot of time by its remote access capabilities. Moreover, controlling a large number of servers in a small area can be extremely suitable for effective management of several computers at the same time.
