anyone use a DVI KVM switch?

I'm trying to choose between a USB or PS/2 4-port DVI KVM switch. I've read reviews that the Belkin USB DVI KVM switch has some pretty serious issues with wireless keyboard/mice which is a big issue to me since that's what I use.

I could always go w/ a PS2 one but then I found this:

looks sweet and seems to handle wireless kb/mice - except that I've read that it doesn't guarantee to work at 1600x1200 on LCD's bigger than 19...and I have a 21" LCD.

anyone know of any other good USB DVI KVM Switches?

All KVMs are pretty much a gamble. They all have their little quirks and you really won't find them all until you get it. Have you read that review toms did on a few KVMs a little while back? That might be helpful.

BTW, the most quirk free KVMs I have come across are Avocent KVMs. They are VERY expensive though :(
