*+- I've never seen KVM switches needing power before and this one (I bought
*+-several) has no power supply included. But their is a socket for a power
*+-adaptor. Zonet KVM3304. So before I swithc everything over and find out it
*+-doesn't work, I was hoping someone would tell me if I really need power and
*+-what happens when I don't have it. ie, maybe I should shut down a few of the
*+-machines. THis thing is 4-way. What's a KVM - Keyboard Video Monito switch
*+-that lets you use multiple computers with one console.

*+-No experience with that model, but static switches conventionally
*+-require little power. If it's a higher quality video monitor, it
*+-might need buffers that have a slightly higher power requirement.

*+-Any reviews I've read indicate that this model gets sufficient
*+-power from PS2 ports. If you're only using the video ports, or
*+-using a usb-ps2 adapter, it might not be so straight forward.
