Customer Reviews

HDMI Dual Monitor Vertiv Avocent SV340H This is a "first impression" of this KVM as I just got it going.I have simple needs - I just want to wanted to switch between several cpu's with dual 4K screens (43" LG and 43" Dell). The dual view.dual link DVI GSC1644 from Iogear, while a great tool, just didn't make the leap to 4K UHD.The good is it just worked fine out of the box with good quality HDMI cables. I haven't tried either USB or audio switching as I manage them independently - I just wanted a KVM to allow dual screen and a single keyboard and mouse. While I bought good quality HDMI cables, I had to rummage for the USB A to B cables, so plan for these as well if you want an easy set-up. I'll use the HDMI audio when I don't want to use headphones while watching movies.The bad, especially for gamers, is it is limited to 30 Hz - the more expensive Display Port version claims it will do 60 Hz. Being HDMI, sound can be directed through monitor speakers or to anything you want, (Windows 10). I did force it to 60Hz for one monitor and it was not happy. It's fine for my needs at 30 Hz, but that's the several hundred dollar difference in models.Changing CPU's is easy via the front-panel switches. However, it doesn't ship with a real manual so I wasn't sure if it did keyboard switching so I reorganized to get the unit near my keyboard. Not as bad as you'd think because HDMI cables are much smaller than DVI. Later, after some digging on the name (sold as Vertiv, but Avocent under the hood), I found the magic manual and the magic keystrokes (Left side) CTRL + CTRL + Number - very simple and easy (so I reorganized my desk again to bury the KVM).Unit seemed tolerant of all manner of switching monitors on and off, same with CPU's, and the unit itself - while they say you should do a sequence starting up, it clearly is resilient as I was plugging cables in and out with stuff on, and off, as I reorganized (twice) and it just kept working.I am happy. I'm actually not sure if HDMI does 60 Hz - I assume so, so that's the 1 star off. If you need 60 Hz, then the Display Port version seems a better option. While it might not matter, my old Iogear was a little unhappy with one Asus motherboard and refused to work with it's keyboard and mouse - no such issue with this unit. We will see how it holds up.The CTRL+CTRL+# for switching and the limit of 30 Hz for HDMI, 60 for Display Port will be important to some people. 4Works well, but requires VESA Certified DisplayPort Cables. This is an impressive switching box. It works nearly flawlessly. My only warning is that it requires VESA Certified DisplayPort cables. After buying this box, I spent nearly as much on cables as I spent on the box. Most DisplayPort cables are not VESA Certified. I started by buying a bunch of Amazon Basics cables. This caused a lot of flickering of the screens. I "upgraded" to Fusion 4K cables, and the problem got worse. Eventually I figured out that I needed cables that were certified by VESA. This fixed the problem. Look for the DisplayPort logo. If you don't see it on the DisplayPort cable, then it isn't VESA Certified, and may fail (cause flickering displays) when connected through this switching box. 5Pretty nice with some quirks. Overall it's a pretty nice KVM. It has some serious heft and a very annoyingly-bright blue LED bar across the front. It comes with nothing except a power cord, so make sure to buy some cables. Expensive.Luckily, it doesn't use any custom oddball cables like other KVMs I've had before. You'll need a set of DisplayPort cables (more on that below), USB 2.0 A/B cables (for the keyboard/mouse), USB 3.0 A/B cables (for the USB 3.0 hub on the front), and optionally two sets 3.5mm audio cables (one for speakers and one for the mic). My monitor (a Dell 3440x1440 ultra-wide) does work with this KVM at 60Hz refresh.I found that this KVM is very picky about the DisplayPort cables that I use. I needed a 10 foot cable from the KVM back to the PC. I had to try 3 different types of cables before I found one that worked. The cables sold by Rankie/Cable Matters/Gear IT (all seem to be the same cable), and Amazon Basics did not work at all (link negotiation failures) or would flicker occasionally. These same cables worked OK when plugged directly into the monitor.I ended up using some 10 foot cables by Accell. Although these cables gave the appearance of slightly lower quality (stiffer, thinner cables), they actually work and seem to work reliably. They look just like the cable that came with the monitor, accept they say "Accell" on them, which was encouraging. If you are having issues with display flickering, try a different cable. 3Severe video problems, substandard USB. I had previously had this switch: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001V9LQ52/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1But it was only HDMI and my Mac Mini can't do 4K video over an HDMI connection. So I decided to swap it out for a switch that supports DisplayPort and got the 4-port, DisplayPort version of this device.It was pretty easy to set up, but it doesn't work with my keyboard (which is a very common Microsoft ergonomic, USB keyboard) and the video stream has a lot of artifacts. The image shimmies left and right by a few pixels on a near constant basis, which can be quite nauseating. Also, it can occasionally fail to render a row of pixels, and once every 10 seconds or so just goes completely black for about one second.The same issues appear with both my Windows 10 and my macOS computers, with a combination of different cables. To write this review, I had to unplug my keyboard out of the KVM and directly into my PC, thereby negating the entire purpose of the KVM.The device is basically unusable as is. At least the previous switch worked, even if it was at a reduced resolution.Also note: if you're buying the bundle with the KVM cable, you get only one KVM cable. The IOGEAR switch I previously had came with four KVM switch cables straight out of the box. 1Good 4K @ 60Hz DisplayPort KVM but could be better First the good news: the Avocent SV340D switches my Dell UP2718Q and an older 1920 x 1200 display at full resolution. For the Dell that's 3840 x 2160 @ 60Hz with HDR -- glorious! It also switches stereo audio and USB3. It uses off-the-shelf cables rather than expensive proprietary cables, though the switch itself is not inexpensive.I bought this to replace an IOGEAR 4-Port DisplayPort KVMP because I wanted to switch two monitors. I have mixed feelings about the replacement -- the IOGear feels more modern and works better for me in some ways but they don't offer a dual-head option.Before you purchase there are a few things you probably should know:- The switch has standard USB ports for the keyboard and mouse and a _completely separate_ USB3 switching system. I truly do not understand this. If you want to use both keyboard screen switching and USB3 you need to run _two_ sets of USB cables to the computers, one standard USB and one USB3. Why not put everything onto USB3? It's backward compatible...- The standard USB keyboard and mouse ports do not pass through any special features your mouse or keyboard may have -- they report as generic devices. This means that if you use (say) a gaming mouse with extra buttons the latter will not work. The IOGear switch I was using includes a "passthru" mode designed to address this situation but I ended up ignoring the Avocent's standard USB ports altogether. I attached a USB3 hub to one of the switch's USB3 ports and run my keyboard and mouse through that.- The documentation is _extremely_ skimpy. OK, it's a KVM, so there's no need for a space shuttle manual, but the manufacturer could do better than 6 pages. The documentation gives the impression that the switch has features that are undescribed. For example, it implies that you can switch screens with mouse gestures but doesn't explain the gestures. It describes a sophisticated-sounding copy-and-paste / file transfer between computers but that requires installing an agent and a driver. 3Very good, but a little buggy for the price, still highly recommend I am visually impaired and have a work from home option once or twice a week. I use this switch to run my home computer and work computer. I have the dual DisplayPort version of this KVM and it is good for the most part. Sometimes when I switch between computers my second monitor has the backlight running but nothing displayed. I have to turn the monitor of and then back on again. When I switch between setups my magnifying software continues to run and stays running when I switch to the other computer. When I was trying lower end KVMs my magnifying software was crashing.Pros:1. If you want a good KVM you have to pay for it. This is expensive but very good for a DisplayPort KVM2. Fast switching3. Very easy setup and worked right away with both computersCons/downsides:1. The switching issue that happens from time to time with my second monitor.2. The support site is difficult. For my desktop computer I tried to download their drivers to see if that fixes my monitor switching issue but they came in .RAR zip format. Most people wouldn't typically have WinRAR or a utility to extract those files.For some context I had an IOGEAR dual DVI KVM that was bought in 2010 that I had to replace as it was going out. At the time it was $550. My desktop and work laptop both support dual DisplayPort so I switched to a DP KVM to future-proof. Given that this KVM is almost $200 more than my original one I was a little surprised there were any switching issues at all. 4A Nightmare The 4 DVI port, single monitor KVM switch I was using worked great and flawless. I upgraded two of the my computers with new graphic cards. Computer (1) has an PNY Nvidia Quadro P2000 with four (4) Displayports. Computer (2) has a Nvidia Quadro NVS 295. Switching between Computer (1) and Computer (2) the icons on the second monitor move to the first monitor. Technical support from Vertiv and Nvidia were of no help.Would someone who is using the Avocent SV340D tell me the brand and model of the graphic cards they are successfully using?Update: After a significant time of searching the Internet for the cause of the icons moving after switching channels with the KVM, I found that Windows 7, 8, and 10 poll Displayports and when the polling senses a disconnect, just like a USB cable being disconnected, Windows issues a reset of the connection and resets Windows causing the secondary monitor icons to move to the primary monitor Desktop. There appears to be no fix from Microsoft and nothing can be found that indicates that Microsoft will fix the problem. 1Not Mac/PC cross compatible. Even though it is advertised as being both Mac and PC compatible, it is not. While attempting to attach a Mac an PC to the same monitor/mouse/keyboard, nothing works properly. Mac does not respond to mouse clicks. PC will not respond to Mac keyboard. Both work fine when peripherals are plugged in directly, so it's not an issue with the towers themselves. Very disappointing. Customer technical support is responsive but not very helpful. Avoid this product. I am now stuck with it unless Vertiv wants to refund my money directly.EDIT: Customer service never solved this, and dropped the ticket. Now the keyboard and mouse input has stopped working. I've ordered a different brand KVM finally. Lesson learned. Avoid this manufacturer. 1STAY AWAY - Look at other products from other providers - this one is a loser! Do NOT purchase this item, the only thing worse than its performance is their customer support. The documentatin, or lack-there-of, that comes with the unit is embarrassing.I installed it and the image quality on my display went from excellent to HORRIBLE!!! I have a high-end 4K display, a high end graphics card and a brand new PC and introducing the switch was a complete failure. When trying to use technical support it was from a country where English was a second language and the technician was English-challenged, the connection was poor and congested. He wanted to simply go through the exercise I had already conducted of plug and unplug . . . he did not any conclusive ideas. He was simply reading notes. 1A KVM capable of 4K UHDTV at 30 Hz RGB or 60 Hz Y'CbCr 4:2:0 This is a well-built KVM switch, in metal case (front panel is plastic). Switch time is about 1 sec among the same resolution, and close to 2 sec from (2K) HDTV to 4K UHDTV and back, possibly with some portion not caused by the KVM, but my screen renegotiating the resolution.While the specification lists 4K UHDTV (3480x2160) at 30 fps (which works unrestricted up to 8 bit RGB), past reviews vaguely hints on the possibility of 60 fps, which in fact does work - with the caveat that the signal must be HDMI 1.4:(a) it must be Y'CbCr 4:2:0, what some graphics cards are capable in producing on their dedicated HDMI port, and(b) better have a monitor that can be limited to an HDMI 1.4 EDID. RGB format at this resolution/frame rate (i.e. HDMI 2.0) will result in a blank screen. And as the KVM seems to copy the monitor's EDID, attaching the KVM to a monitor that advertises itself as HDMI 2.0 can trigger the graphics card to immediately switch to RGB.The HDMI 1.4 seems to be a hard limitation rather than bandwidth, and HDR10 with a HDTV resolution does not work, for instance. Interestingly, the HDR metadata gets transmitted (monitor switches to an HDR state), but the any kind of 10 bit image will not get through, even (2K) HDTV. Also, input with HDCP does not seem to work. 5
