Stockton-on-Tees, UK (25th January 2011) – The new 2 port KVM Switch Micro from LINDY Electronics provides a low cost option for users that want the convenience of just one monitor, keyboard and mouse, but the freedom to switch between two computers. This compact KVM switch requires no additional cables and will work with both PCs and Macs.
Once installed, the KVM Switch can be tucked away out of sight, leaving just a small desktop push button that allows the user to easily transfer control from one computer to the other. In addition to the button, users can also use keyboard hotkeys, the supplied software, or the system tray or dock icon to operate the switch.
“It’s very common for people to have more than one machine,” says Owen Haigh, Product Manager of LINDY Electronics. “Maybe it’s an older machine that still hasn’t been scrapped, or one set up for a specific task such as gaming, either way keeping extra machines can considerably add to clutter on the desk. KVM Switches have been used to solve this problem for many years, but the expense can put many users off. Our entry level KVM Switch is just the answer for reducing the mess, without breaking the bank.”
Identify which computer is currently selected is easy, simply look at the colour of the status icon in the system tray or dock, or the colour of the LED on the desktop switch. Peripherals can also be shared between both computers, by connecting a USB hub to either the keyboard or mouse input port, making the LINDY KVM Switch Micro a simple solution for controlling two machines.
