Rated 5 out of 5 by from Avoid this KVM switch at all costs!My company owns two Avocent DSR2035 units that have worked fine for years. CDW recommended the Avocent MergePoint Unity 2016DAC as a lower cost alternative. The local interface, however, makes no sense! You cannot toggle from one video session to the another with a simple keystroke. There is no OSD! Instead, you have to navigate the god awful menu of the OBWI, close one session and start another. Yet, the unit will scan video sessions automatically, if you so desire. It's the worse thing I ever bought from CDW! I stupidly threw away all the packing material , or you can believe this hunk of junk would have been returned.
