StarTech KVM to USB 2.0 Laptop Crash Cart Adapter

The NOTECONS01 KVM Console to USB 2.0 Portable Laptop Crash Cart Adapter turns your notebook or netbook into a portable server crash cart, eliminating the need to lug around a large, heavy and awkward video screen, keyboard, and mouse. This adapter delivers the VGA stream from any host computer to a laptop and emulates the laptop mouse and keyboard outputs for simple access and control of connected servers, PCs, or other 'headless' devices.


With portability for the mobile administrator or repair technician in mind, this USB-powered adapter features a small-footprint design that requires no additional accessories to connect to most servers and requires no server-side software installation. Plus, the pocket-sized adapter draws its power from the server-side USB connections, allowing the laptop/netbook to last longer without consuming battery power. Ensuring full control of the connected units, the Laptop KVM Server Console Adapter provides immediate access to the POST screen and BIOS, plus the ability to handle full configuration of the attached PC or machine; administrators can connect to a headless server/device without the need of an expensive LCD rackmount console or bulky monitor, keyboard and mouse solution.

StarTech KVM to USB Laptop Crash Cart

StarTech KVM to USB 2.0 Laptop Crash Cart Adapter SKU: NOTECONS01

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still have problems with resolution changes Incredible help when working with physical servers, but the quite annoying resolution change bug still exists: every time the resolution/refresh rate changes (servers do this a LOT during POST/boot), the console outputs only garbage, and you have to reconnect the adapter more than a few times to get readable content. (Win10/Win11, with driver version 120.0918).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very handy tool, needs a bit more polish I've had my crash cart for a few years and it has been invaluable every time. I've used it on servers, PCs and even Raspberry Pis. I've recommended it lots of times and every engineer who saw me using mine has wanted one. My main issue is the software - later versions have an issue with the screen buffer, showing corrupted or inaccurate output in certain times (usually during POST and boot). After a conversation with Support some years ago, the best version I've found for Windows 10 seems to be 113.0103, but sadly this is no longer available for download - a good job I kept it when I had it in 2018. Startech, please either fix the display buffer or have the stable version available for download.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Invaluable tool Simply essential tool. No need for screen and keyboard anymore, just plug into any server and access it. Do need a HDMI convertor

Rated 1 out of 5 by from MacOS Big Sur software? Not usable on MacOS Big Sur v11.4. Any plans to release a software update?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't refresh the video correctly During the POST/Boot process, if the server is constantly changing video resolution, it usually throws garbage text at the screen or the screen freezes. I have to keep unplugging and plugging the USB cable until I get video signal again. I'm using Windows 10 (fresh install, no upgrade from Windows 7 or 8) with latest software/drivers installed. I have more than 20 of these and I have the same issue with all of them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant bit of kit Dead easy to use and works a treat. You can also plug in more than one if you need to access multiple devices at once. Software sometimes crashes on windows 10, hence the 4 star review. If it could be a bit more stable then it would be 5.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great on Older MAC OS's Was very happy with the product but need new driver for MAC Catalina10.15, ASAP as it's now a high dollar useless device for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, be sure you get the right drivers This is a great tool. You do want to be sure to get the correct drivers; notecons01 and notecons02 are different. Also, a note to Startech: it's hard to find this in the list of KVM switches. This really could use its own category.
