What is it used for?

A KVM switch (with KVM being an abbreviation for Keyboard, Video or Visual Display, Mouse) is a hardware device that allows a user to control multiple computers from a single keyboard, video monitor and mouse. Although multiple computers are connected to the KVM, typically a smaller number of computers can be controlled at any given time. Modern devices have also added the ability to share USB devices and speakers with multiple computers. A user connects a monitor, keyboard and mouse to the KVM device, then uses special cables (generally PS/2, USB and VGA) to connect the KVM device to the computers. Control is switched from one computer to another by the use of a switch or buttons on the KVM device, with the KVM passing the signals between the computers and the keyboard, mouse and monitor depending on which computer is currently selected. Most electronic devices also allow control to be switched through keyboard commands.
