Synergy Versus a KVM Switch — Multi-PC Setup

Synergy

Pros

  • Allows clipboard copying
  • Allows for more than two computers
  • Don’t need to press any buttons, each time you want to switch from one PC to another

Cons

  • Any networking event that changes the server’s IP address requires all clients to manually have to update their settings
  • Spotty connections, especially over Wi-Fi can cause jittery mouse movements and connectivity issues.
