The IOGEAR GCS742UW6 is a Hybrid VGA KVM with cables and audio which addresses the problem of connecting a USB mouse and PS/2 keyboard to a KVM.

In addition to the hybrid connections you can also share your desktop speakers and microphone between both computers, plus have the ability to switch them independently from KVM functions.

The KVM has a selectable rate Auto scan mode that allow hands-off monitoring of your computers which is perfect for the times when you have processes running on both computers, and just want to monitor their progress. The one touch switch is small enough to be placed in a handy, out-of-the-way place.

  • Hybrid connections for USB mouse and PS/2 keyboard
  • Hot key or manual switching
  • Independent Audio switching (hot key only)
  • Asymmetric cable lengths
