Tripp Lite's B040-008-19 KVM Switch gives you a rack-mountable keyboard, LCD and touchpad in a single console that occupies only 1U of rack space. Easy to install and use, it's the cost-effective solution for controlling up to 8 directly connected computers/servers.

The B040-008-19 has a built-in 19" LCD screen that supports video resolutions up to 1366 x 768. You can switch easily between the 8 ports using on-console push buttons, an on-screen display (OSD) or keyboard hot key commands. Password protection prohibits unauthorized users from accessing the connected computers.

With this KVM switch, you can increase the number of connected computers up to 248 by daisy-chaining up to 15 B042-Series KVM switches. Uses Tripp Lite P780-series combo cable kits that support both PS/2 and USB connections without the need to purchase additional cables or adapters. An extra HD15 port allows an additional VGA monitor or an external console to be connected. Add a Tripp Lite B051-000 IP Remote Access Unit to connect from anywhere in the world. When not in use, the B040-008-19 stores neatly in a rack drawer and pulls out when needed. This KVM console is compatible with all major operating systems. Rugged steel housing stands up to frequent use. Complies with the Federal Trade Agreements Act (TAA) for GSA Schedule purchases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product for the most partI have found that this KVM switch works quite well, the only thing that is a bit annoying is that the USB mouse I have connected sometimes just stops working, but then I just unplug the mouse and plug it back in and it is working fine. This does not happen all the time just every now and then. The only other issue I have is that some times the auto adjust does not cooperate very well and some of my screens are to high to low or off to the right. Usually I just unplug power from the unit for a moment and plug back in and I am good to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, reliable KVM for server rackI have been using this rack mounted KVM for sometime now. The large screen and easy to use keyboard makes it a nice addition to our closet. We haven't had any problems with it sense it was installed. My only "complaint" is that the indicator on the screen to show you which computer you are on would be better if it would be easy to either turn off, have it show when you switch but disappear after a couple seconds or be able to position it in a different location. That is the one and only thing that keeps be from giving this a strong 5 star. Everything else is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and works flawlesslyI've had other rackmounted KVM monitor devices from other vendors that I've paid much more for, that didn't work as well as this one. Simple to set-up, just connect the right wires to the devices you want to connect and boom, you're done. I've had absolutely no problems with this device. I would absolutely recommend this device to my colleagues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of UseVery intuitive to set up and use. Couple of minor issues. Screen was a little too bright. Caused a bit of resolution loss. Had to run CD/Owners Manual to figure out how to change the title per port. Otherwise it's highly recommended.
