Iogear GCS1782G 2-Port Dual-Link DVI KVMP Pro Switch with 7.1 Audio, high-end 3D graphics support (NVIDIA 3D Vision Ready), is compatible with most gaming keyboards and has an integrated 2-port USB 2.0 hub for peripheral sharing. Now users can control two computers and share multiple USB peripherals from a single keyboard, monitor and mouse console. It features Iogear's DynaSync technology which allows the KVMP to read and remember the monitor's optimal display parameters and refresh rate, a function critical in today's graphic intense applications where large wide screen displays (up to 30") are required.
The patented asynchronous switching allows the user to independently switch applications between the connected computers. You can run one application on one computer while running another application on the other. Moreover, the integrated 2-port USB 2.0 hub is available for each computer to share multiple peripherals connected to the hub or via an external powered USB 2.0 hub. Access to such peripherals is performed on a one-at-a-time basis. Finally, the audio ports allow for connecting powered desktop speakers for stereo sound and a single microphone for audio input/output to each computer.

Using the keyboard and mouse ports, IOGEAR's GCS1782G KVM switch supports only "vanilla" Windows keyboard and mouse USB device drivers, not my Dell Multi-Media keyboard nor Logitech 3-button mouse. Per IOGEAR's tech support, I tried using the USB ports on the GCS1782G, with the same bad result (possibly ? due to the GCS1782G having only one USB cable per PC). The GCS1782G has been returned to Adorama for credit.
