    I have a simple Belkin KVM, just with PS2 and VGA - works fine for me. Can't really say much more than that!

    Do you find that everytime you right click on an Icon in windows the monitor goes off for a fraction of a second ? Doesn't happen when I don't use the KVM. It's wierd and it drives me potty!!!

    Nope, I've never had any problems. I can't tell the difference between computers that use a KVM and those that don't. Except the beep when you hit scroll lock twice.

    I use a belkin KVM, and it has problems with my logitech mouse driver, once i switch away from the PC once, it looses the extra mouse buttons, such as back n forward, and the scrool buttons.

    I took to only running the monitor and keyboard through the KVM and used two seperate mice, but it still did it. Just my dumb luck, it's not the end of the world though, just very frustrating!
