I use the MiniView 2 and 4 port KVMs. I bought these at Fry's. They work pretty well. There
is a slight degradation of the video signal at 1600x1200 but only if you really look for it.

I use the 4 port for 1 RH7.3, 1 RH9, 1 FC1, and 1 Windows/ME servers in our office.

I use the 2 port with 1 FC 1 server and 1 W/XP Home desktop at home.

They've worked for about 2 years with no problems.
