  • "We have been using the NTI KVM extenders for 5 years. The quality of the video has been superior to other brands that we have tried in the past. Along with the reliability of this product, the customer service team is very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend NTI products for KVM extension."

  • "Thanks so much for a great unit! The ST-C5KVM-600 KVM extenders are a perfect solution to allow two workstations to access the same computer. Excellent video quality at 400 feet, we will be purchasing more as needed."

  • "The ST-C5KVMRS-600 unit works great with our touch screen displays. We got it right the first time. Thank you for your assistance."

  • "The thing that most impresses me about NTIs XTENDEX™ ST-C5KVM-600 unit is the video resolution capabilities. Units by other manufacturers in the same price range will only accommodate a 1024x768 resolution. This unit has far greater capabilities for the same price."

  • "We have enjoyed working with the NTI extender products (ST-C5KVMRS-600) for the following reasons:

    1. Your products offer us much more flexibility with the options that are available.
    2. The quality is equal to, if not higher, than the competitive products we have used in the past.
    3. For our projects, which are Mega and Super Yachts on the oceans of this world, you provide us with many of our IT needs, integrated into our complex systems.

    I should also mention my technical questions were handled with courtesy and efficiency, which makes us feel comfortable with NTI."

  • "Brand 'A' units are a thing of the past. They fail on the MILDEST of power faults, completely collapse in high RF fields, often require multiple re-boots to work at all, and come with a bulky cable set making a rack mount location an absolute nightmare. NTI's ST-C5KVMRS-600, in METAL boxes, tolerate the power company in a size that nicely velcros to the back of a rack computer with short cables. NTI's work beautifully with Cat5 in high RF fields without special shielding. Well done. Don't change a thing, PLEASE!"
