A Few Notes

Your KVM may take some getting used to. I’m noticing what seems to be some episodic keyboard delays; for example, with the IOGEAR MiniView Symphony (or it could be my computer), the keyboard periodically gets "lost" when I switch, for a few seconds or until I twiddle its cable. Go figure. Wrangling cables, both for the KVM and the other power, network, printer, phone, USB, and what-have-you connectors reinforces my sense that Everything Needs To Be Labeled. And while a KVM will simplify at least one part of your computer management, there’s still network and power cabling, not to mention the phone.

But meanwhile, you’ve made at least one thing easier.
