Looking for KVM thoughts

I am looking at getting a KVM switch for when I am working on computers. I am looking for a two port USB/VGA. I have found these on Newegg and wnated to see what y'all thought or had any other thoughts on an inexpensive one - ENCORE ENKVM-USBB 2-Port USB KVM Switch With Easy Switch and Cable - ATEN CS22U 2-Port USB Cable KVM Switch

I have never heard of either company

I haven't used one in a while, but I found a low cost IOGear DVI/USB model that had all cables included.

You need to decide if you need DVI or VGA.
I purchased a VGA for my first KVM switch and later found that the newer Hardware had DVI so I purchased a DVI.
Aten is a very good brand a bit expensive but is top of the range.

Thanks y'all! I think I will go with VGA for now. all the computers I work on are older, most still running XP. I live in a small town, not much money around and very few techy people. Plus my Dell uses VGA and like most, don't have much cash to upgrade that kinda stuff. I figured if I run into a bunch of DVI PC's coming in, Then I have to make some decisions.

I had been using an IDE to USB for years and just recently had to get a SATA to USB as alot more SATA drives were coming in. One of those, let the work pay for the toys situations :) takes a little more time but at least I have good steady base of customers :) Thanks again
