Belkin tries to make life easier for us computer geeks that have more than one computer sitting on their desk (or beside or under) at home. In fact, the Flip is meant for those of us with a laptop and desktop at home and allows you to use one keyboard, video and mouse (hence the acronym KVM) for your desktop and laptop.
KVMs have been around for some time of course but Belkin makes this one cool by calling it the Flip and including an RF remote. The price seems good to me considering I spent over $300 for my last KVM switch six years ago… you know, when the “dot-com” was busting.
Laptops offer a great way to work and play almost anywhere. Thanks to Flip, you can now use your big monitor and full-sized keyboard for both your laptop and desktop computer. It’s simple. Just place the remote anywhere on your desk and press to flip your monitor from one computer to the next. Flip is also great for connecting your old and new desktop computers, giving you instant access to files, programs, and games on both computers.
