IOGEAR MiniView Micro PS2
IOGEAR on Monday introduced the MiniView Micro PS/2, the latest of its KVM switches for two-PC setups. The switch allows either computer to share a DVI-equipped LCD up to 1600x1200 resolution as well as PS/2 keyboards and mice. Audio is also sent through the switch independently from other inputs; this lets users host and play music on one computer while they work another, IOGEAR says. Regardless of the setup, the footprint is minimal thanks to an in-line design and a breakout controller that prevents the KVM from consuming too much space on a desk. The use of PS/2 ports lets the MiniView support both most Windows systems as well as Sun's Solaris-based workstations. It should be available today for $160.
