Question: How long are the cables provided
Answer: The cables that come with the unit are 4'.

Question: Do you offer 9' cables for AVOCENT 4SV130BND1-001 and special pricing for high quantity?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. This Avocent SwitchView comes bundled with four 4' DVI/audio and mic combo cables and four 4' USB cables. For volume pricing, please call us at 1-877-586-6654.

Question: this is supposed to be a 4-port kvm but in your specifications below on the same page you list only computer 1(green) and computer 2(blue) ---- what happened to the 4-ports
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. There was an error in the specification table. We have corrected the information to reflect the fact that it is a 4-port KVM.

Question: The cables are not 6'. My order that I just received contains 4' cables. Are 6' or longer cables available?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, according to Avocent, the only cable sets available for this model are the 4' versions.

Question: Does this device support wireless Mice and keybaords using a USB transmitter?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry.
Using wireless keyboards and mice is very hit or miss when it comes to KVMs. This is related to the very different way in which wireless peripherals communicate and a KVM's internal mouse/keyboard emulation. We cannot guarantee a particular wireless setup will work with a particular KVM.

That being said, customers who attempt to use wireless keyboards and mice find Avocent switches, like the above SwitchView DVI KVM, to work best. Alternatively, we have heard of some success when using the USB hub connection (which this switch also has) as opposed to the USB console connectors. However, this typically results in some loss of functionality in regards to Hotkey switching and other keyboard supported functions.

Again, it is a hit or miss proposition and we cannot guarantee any switch will work. For best performance and compatibility, we always suggest wired keyboards and mice.

Question: Features incorrectly states USB interface powered - No external power supply. The 130 as shown in the specs has external power supply. Mfg website states the DVI models require power supply which is included in the purchase.
Answer: You are correct. It appears that some of the features of the SV120 may have been inadvertently included on this page. Thank you for your assistance. We will correct the information in the feature list.
