Aten introduces a new hybrid USB KVM switch made mostely of cables. The 2 port flexible design easily expands the connection of monitor, PS/2 keyboard and mouse.
What Aten did with their new KVM switch design is insert a remote port for selecting between computers from an extender switch (as pictured).
The video supports 2048 x 1536 and runs on Win 2000, XP, Vista, Linux and FreeBSD. No power supply is needed to run the KVM switch, just plug-n-play.

Don’t let the bright color fool you, these USB gadgets are really green.
