"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

The Raritan MasterConsole CAT Cat5 KVM is the perfect solution for consolidating your equipment if your small- to midsize server room or data center is getting too cluttered. Individual models control up to eight or 16 servers, and switches can be cascaded to control up to 256 servers at distances of up to 150 feet.

Our MasterConsole CAT Switch:

– Works with every leading server (Microsoft Windows NT, Windows Me, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows Vista, Novell NetWare, UNIX and Linux)

– Uses Cat5/6 cables, saving you space and allowing easier cabling

MasterConsole CAT provides bulletproof reliability and performance including a dedicated, intelligent processor at each port so each connected server "sees" its own keyboard and mouse, a unique "keep-alive" design which ensures nonstop server operation in case of power loss to the switch and the support of high-resolution video up to 1600 x 1200. In combination with leading-edge technology and scalability such as server selection from the front panel channel buttons and by name from pop-up, on-screen menus, the MasterConsole CAT is designed for flexibility.

User Port:

– VGA HDB-15 (F) x 1 (Blue)
– Keyboard PS/2 mini-din 6-pin x 1
