Got DDM KVM switch? The best value and the lowest true cost comparisons

Got a DDM KVM switch?

Now is the perfect opportunity to consider acquiring a DDM KVM switch, offering outstanding value and the most cost-effective long-term ownership experience.

Initially, when scanning the prices of top-of-the-line advanced KVM switches available on the market, ConnectPRO's KVM switches tended to have the highest listed prices. However, it is crucial to conduct a true-cost comparison to determine which products offer the greatest value and the lowest long-term ownership expenses.

To assist you in making an informed decision, we have prepared a comprehensive comparison table for advanced DisplayPort KVM switches from major providers in the same class. This table was initially created in 2019, updated in 2021, and most recently refreshed on 5/31/2023.

To be classified as advanced-class KVM switches, these switches must fulfill the following criteria:

  1. Demonstrate EDID persistence across all connected systems/laptops when sharing display monitor(s). This ensures that the EDID emulation and feeding remains consistent for all connected systems.   Users' workflow will be none-interrupted. 

  2. Enable USB HID device sharing using Dynamic Device Mapping (DDM) core, thereby eliminating hot-plug detection errors that may appear in the log records of connected systems. The standard function should involve seamless HID device switching with no latency - to maintaining the system performance and stability. 

  3. Allow independent video switching for multi-monitor sharing, along with the capability to park/lock/assign video to any connected system. These features are important considerations when evaluating KVM switches.
