If you have a need to control PS/2-enabled PCs and USB-equipped Macs from the same console, you might be interested in a new offering from
StarTech.com called the SV431H. It’s a new hybrid switch that makes a single keyboard and mouse work between up to four PCs and Macs.
The KVM switch is a rack-mountable system that incorporates VGA monitor, keyboard and mouse controls. The connections are selected by buttons on the front of the switch.
StarTech.com product manager Ellard Teeple said that the SV431H is suitable for cross-platform environments.
“This tool allows you to control PCs and Macs from one keyboard, mouse and monitor. A great solution for graphic design studios or other cross-platform workspaces that utilizes both operating environments,” said Teeple.
The suggested retail price for the SV431H is US$245. You can buy it through Insight.com, Buy.com, or via local StarTech.com dealers.
