The ATEN CS682 takes a giant step forward over past models by offering DVI functionality, USB 2.0 peripheral sharing, and a rich bass experience for 2.1 surround systems. The ATEN CS682 features a newly implemented remote port selector; you can now conveniently control port switching from the desktop while the switch itself remains hidden out of sight.

ATEN CS682 features enhanced Video DynaSync technology, which stores the console monitor's EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) to optimize display resolution. In addition to new hotkeys, the CS682 offers the latest mouse port-switching functionality - simply double-click on the scroll wheel of a USB mouse to change ports. Finally, the CS682's new Power-On detection feature means that if one of the computers is powered off, the CS682 KVM Switch will automatically switch to the other powered-on computer.

Featuring an unbeatable combination of DVI functionality, USB 2.0 peripheral sharing convenience, and enhanced user-friendly operations, the ATEN CS682 allows users to keep up with the latest innovations in desktop multimedia applications.

Question: Is CS682 compatible with windows 10?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

The Aten CS682 has been tested fully compatible with Windows 7. KVM Switches that work with Windows 7 are very likely to work with Windows 10 due to the technical similarities in HID operation. That being said, without the manufacturer doing official analysis and testing, we are unable to 100% guarantee compatibility.

Question: What is the MTBF of the CS682?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

The Aten CS682 has a Mean-Time-Between-Failures (MTBF) of 814228.1 hrs.
