D-Link have announced the KVM-221 2-Port USB KVM Switch. The KVM-221 allows you to control two computers using one monitor, USB keyboard, and USB mouse with Audio Support.
“The KVM-221 allows users to effortlessly control two systems without having to buy additional computer peripherals” states D-Link South Africa Marketing Manager Karien Wood. “It is ideal for the home office where business files are kept on one computer and personal files on another.”
With the built-in audio support, you can also share a set of speakers between two computers. Listen to music on one computer while having quick access to resources on the second computer. You can even dedicate one computer as a music server.
Since the KVM-221 manages two computers using only one monitor, keyboard, and mouse, it frees up your desktop space, minimizing wires and extra devices that would be needed otherwise. In addition, the KVM-221 is compact in size, making it fit into virtually any workspace.
The KVM-221 is easy to install and even easier to use. No drivers or software is required. It is a true plug and play device that will have you up and running quickly. Once connected, you can easily switch between the two computers with the front panel “select” button and keyboard hot keys.
Price and Availability
The D-Link KVM-221 is available through Comztek, Mustek and Pinnacle Micro at a suggested retail price of R420.00
