I have a belkin that I need to get a power brick for that seems to work nice.  Here is the model: F1DH104U  Here is the link: http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=262690
I have the 4 port version of that one. I had all types of trouble with
it working with USB keyboards. I ended up bricking it when I tried to
flash it to fix it. I no longer use a KVM since it seems impossible to
find one that's less than $200, works on all platforms, and isn't vacuum

As a side note, I have a few sets of quality KVM cables (really just
extension cables...) I may be interested in parting with. Some are PS/2,
some are USB, contact me off list if you're interested.
