I've used Belkins. They've been flakey. I'm currently on my third year
with an Aten and have had no problems. I bought this cheap off the
Internet so I don't know what they usually sell for. There was some
discussion here about KVM switches just before I bought mine and
everyone who mentioned Aten said good things about it.

Best of luck
