I've used a number of KVMs and found a great variation in performance with mice. Some seem to support wireless mice and others don't (or worse mouse pointer gets stuck occasionally and drives you mad!). What brands or models are known to work well with advanced or wireless mice? Does anyone have experience with other peripherals like webcams, storage etc?

Webcams and storage will not be supported (the devices must be kind-of stateless for KVM to work).

I know ConnectPRO's USB DDM KVM switches may work with Das Keyboard without problems. The patented DDM (Dynamic Device Mapping) technology allows any HID devices (not limited to keyboards or mouses) to be connected to the console side of KVM switch at the same time still maintain 100% transparent features of the shared devices (USB HID devices).

I tested the UR-Plus and UD-Plus KVM switches. All of them support both logitech and Microsoft wireless desktop keyboard/mouse or combo without any problem.
