Question: I've had the dvi kvmp cs1784 for a few years but it appears to be packing it in. I see it is discontinued. What is the nearest available product?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

The Aten CS1784 has been directly replaced by the Aten CS1784A.

CS1784 vs. CS1784A
CS1784A is an enhanced version of its predecessor CS1784. Functionally both units will act the same - this upgrade is mostly superficial.
