One finger switch your PCs
The ATEN CS52A is a 2 port Hybrid KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) switch targeted at the home user who has more than two machines running—laptop and PC, for example. KVM switches are meant to be used as a way to quickly switch between two computers without virtual networking software.
What you get in the package is three branches of cables—two of which connect to the two machines and a third for the display, keyboard and mouse you’ll be using with the two systems. You also get USB and audio connectivity for the speakers and microphone. Unlike more advanced KVMs, there are no security features built into this device.
It seems a little confusing to setup at first, but once done, switching control from one computer to another is effortless—a press of a button is all it takes. A Quick Guide is provided to help new users get on their way quickly.
The build quality is decent and the cables are fairly sturdy as well. The cables are around 4 to 5 feet in length in length and should be sufficient to reach two computers on tables kept side by side.
At Rs. 2750, it’s slightly more expensive than expected. We don’t really see the need for such a product in a country like India where most households have a single PC. Those using a laptop and a PC might find this most useful, though.
