Anyone own a Logitech G15... or G10 keyboard?
Aug 2nd, 2006 at 11:45am
 
I'm considering buying one of these... the local store has a few refurbished ones, but wanted to know if it's worth it?

Does it work well with EQ? ...

Also techi question... I'm thinking this will only work to it's full potential if plugged into the USB port... instead of using the PS/2 adapter. Anyone know of a way to share a USB keyboard amongst two or more computers ???

PS: incase you folks haven't seen this bad boy....

Belkin makes a usb/ps2 KVM switch.  Don't remember the exact model, but will look it up later when I get to work and the coffee has kicked in.

By the way, I tried one of those keyboards to see how good they would work for the gaming center, but I found it better just to get a gaming pad from Wolfking www.wolfkingusa.com.  ALSO... Check out www.mwave.com, I have seen those keyboards there cheap.

Okay... did a little homework... this is what I surmised....

The G15 is a POWER hog... therefore... regular USB KVM's DO NOT work with it...

but there are some KVM's with additional power supplies... these... in theory DO work...

EDIT: just found more info... even with additional power supplies... it's a crapshoot.. will post later which KVM's have posts alledging they work with the G15

also note... when using a USB KVM... my understanding is, that when you switch to a different computer, it's as if you have disconected the USB device, and certain devices need to be reset or disconected when switching

ADDendum:
Amazon sells a pack with the G15 and Iogear GCS102U 2 Port USB KVM ... therefore should work together

Works... according to someone posting:
Gefen EXT-DVIKVM-241 USB KVM works
linxcel kvm model: us-126a
Tripp-Lite USB KVM, model # B034-002-r
G-CS104U KVM Switch from Iogear
Avocent Switchview MM2

Found a posting that:
IOGEAR GCS124U 4 Port MiniView II USB KVM Switch  DID NOT work

The KVM I use just for work drives me insane. 

I can't imagine having to depend on it for gaming.  Undecided
