Re: Off Topic: can anyone recommend a USB KVM

Yes, exactly. There are two all USB KVM's I've tried, and both were flaky, a 
Startech and an Avocent. So far, I don't think anyone has addressed the 
precise question, or at least, not with sufficient precision. Most USB based 
KVM's require PS2 keyboard and mouse, and they connect to the client machines 
via USB - those generally work, though, with caveats. I'm looking 
specifically for a KVM that accepts USB keyboard and mouse, and connects to 
clients via USB, AND WORKS -- that's the criteria. I'll check the IOGear 
units, which I have had good results with, but, the ones I've used were PS2 
inputs from the mouse and keyboard, and USB to clients. Since the respondent 
who suggested IOGear didn't specify precisely what his units' specs were, I 
still don't know whether he was addressing my specific question...
