    Default Input Device compatibility testing with KVM & KM switches

    Results of testing of various devices (Keyboards/Mice) with various synchronous KM/KVM switches with ratings as:
    • GOOD: Programmable macros & added functionality work as intended;
    • OK: Device functions but only with default key-binds or as a plain keyboard/mouse;
    • BAD: Device unusable or key pieces of the device do not function at all;

    Note: It is likely that the Aimos 4 port and 8 port both work identically but just in case not we will denote which devices have been tested with which switch...

    Test results with an Aimos 8 port Synchronous KM switch (also on newegg) will be preceded by an 8:
    Test results with an Aimos 4 port Synchronous KM switch will be preceded by a 4:
    Test results verified as identical on both will be preceded by an 8+4:

    Test results against the FJ Gear US-108 8 port synchronous KM switch (this may be similar to the ShuOne):


    • GOOD to OK: Corsair K70 RBG Rapidfire (source:bpkdasbaum see details);
    • GOOD to OK: Mouse Logitech G700S (source:bpkdasbaum see details);

    NOTE: The FJ Gear US-108 KVM has a 3 key rollover limit.
    Meaning when you walk forward (1), strafe(2) and rightlick mouselook(3) at the same time, the mouse will sometimes lose focus due to signal updates of continuous mouse, but catches itself again.
    When additionally pressing a spell button (4) the mouse will always lose focus.

    I picked up the Aimos 4 port and did some testing with good results.

    Corsair K70 works with hardware actions through KM but first needs to be plugged directly into computer running iCue software to create and store profile to keyboard. Do not use the software actions those are only available when plugged in directly to a computer running the iCue software.

    Razer Naga Trinity works if you load the profile from only one computer. Again plug directly into one computer running Synapse and set the onboard profile then unplug and quit Synapse (also important do not have running on any other computer) before plugging into KM switch. This will keep the onboard profile and send key mappings to all devices.

    edit: it seems there may be different naga trinity models, I have this model - additional info is posted here

    I can confirm using a shuone that as long as the host pc has razer synapse on it with the keybinds configured for each connected pc that the orb weaver will completely function including the d pad. You CANNOT use any of the keyboard shortcuts to turn sync off/on with shuone. Work around I found is using the d pad for team movement then using the wasd keys on orbweaver for main movement.

    Thanks for the info. Glad to see that on the Orbweaver (which also worked on the Aimos).

    How did you get your orbweaver to work with the shuone? Mine doesn't want to see it, on either computer.

    I first configured and installed the synapse software on host pcs. I plugged orbweaver into each pc to configure the keybindings. The I disconnected it and connected the shuone. I plugged it into the keyboard port and did a test with selecting notepad if all of the keys replicated correctly. Let me know if this helps.
