Question: Will this provide dual-monitor support for 2 computers or will this only provide single-monitor support for 2 computers? Thanks in advance!
Answer: Thank you for you inquiry. Unfortunately, this KVM only supports one monitor. The dual link refers to a DVI connection with double the band width of a normal DVI connection, providing far greater resolutions than a standard connection.

For a two monitor set up, you will be looking for a dual head KVM (some of which are also dual link). You can find some 2-port, dual-head desktop KVMs by clicking here.

Question: MTBF = ?
Answer: Thank you for your patience. Unfortunately, we are still waiting on the manufacturer to respond to our request. If/when we hear back, we will update this post.

UPDATE: The MTBF for this device is 648,400 hrs.
