I owe one of these. As far as gaming goes, it should work just fine for ya, it does for me, but i would urge you to look for another option. I'm generally unhappy with it. First one of the four cables that came with it was bad. Second none of the extended keyboard functions work with it. Third, it fails to recognize my two linux boxes after a reboot. The only way to fix this is for me to crawl underneath my desk and unplug the thing then plug it back in. And finally the thing just has the overall feel of a piece of junk.

Just my opinion,

regards

thanks for the reply, I just wanted to make sure that it would well for FPS gaming. I had heard about KVMs that have "bandwidth" issues causing you not to be able to press multiple keys at once, obviously that would be death in FPS games. I don?t really use extended keyboard functions and all my machines are windows machines (for now at least)
