My requirements may not be the same as yours, but I have experiences in
two brands of KVMs: IOGear and Avocent.

The IOGear KVM worked well ... for a while, then quit.   I was not
impressed by IOGear's customer service

The Avocent, though more expensive, just works and works.   I now have
another on my DVI monitor.  It, too, works well and reliably.
