Any suggestions where I can find one? I need it to support my MX 518 gaming mouse. I am guessing a KVM that has a USB hub or does not emulate USB 2.0, any suggestions would be great.

What about that 4-Port iogear KVM from your last thread? That should do it.

I wasn't sure if it supported gaming mice with more than 3 buttons.

It says no emulation for the 4 port version (abit to many cables for my desk and a little worried about the remote getting ripped off)

Would the 2 port version work? (a steal @ $24 and a little worried about the remote getting ripped off)

Trendnet TK-204UK is an ugly blue however reviews stated it does work with gaming mice and supports HD/DVI. (a little to expensive for being blue)

I have a 518 and was using a D-Link 4-port KVM for a long time. You won't lose the functionality of the mouse by using PS/2. Thing is, you won't find a decent KVM that does DVI for under $100.

I was hoping something that will allow me to use gaming mice, I bought a Dlink 221 KVM and it is only compatible with 2 button mice, I was also wanting to upgrade to wireless eventually (the Rapoo 3200 1000 DPI), so I require USB. The Trendnet TK-204UK supports DVI and is also a USB. It is known to work with wireless and gaming mice its decent its just an eyesore. It cost $89 CAD so you can find decent KVM's for under $100. I might just go with the Startech as it is constructed of metal (also black) and will work with my desk setup, only drawback is that it is VGA. If I go with the trendnet I might spray paint it black.
