Packaging and Accessories:

The Startech.com KVM Console to USB 2.0 Crash Cart Adapter arrived in a rather generic white cardboard box with everything you would need stored safely inside.

The top of the box features a label which shows an image of the product, a list of the key features, and a list of the contents. When you first open the box you might be tricked into thinking something is missing, as all of the contents are hidden under the cardboard tray shown in the below right image.

Everything you get is shown in the below left image. There is a brief Quick Start Guide, the crash cart adapter, a USB cable, a USB to PS2 adapter, and a tiny USB flash drive.

The above right image takes a closer look at some of the accessories. The USB cable is provided to connect the host PC to the crash cart adapter, while the USB to PS2 adapter allows you to use the product with a system that does not have USB ports, or perhaps a system that just doesn't have any free USB ports. The USB flash drive is where the application is stored to run the crash cart adapter on the host computer. While you do need to install software on the computer you intend to use to control everything, there is nothing to install on any of the systems you intend to control.

You will notice there is no power adapter, which means there is nothing to keep track of but the adapter and its cables. It also means you will not have to hunt down a power outlet in order to use the adapter.

One item that might be nice to see included with the kit is a VGA to DVI adapter. Many systems might only have DVI connections, and providing an adapter with the kit would ensure that you had a way of accessing even more systems.
