Good, reliable KVM boxes

Anyone here use KVM switches? I have one monitor (HDMI), one set of mouse and keyboard (both USB) and two towers. Looking for something that works and is reliable because the last one I bought (some random Chinese brand) crapped out so fast.

On my old setup I used a TRENDnet TK-209K, which worked without problems.

I use software called Synergy to do this over LAN.
It's not quite what a KVM does, it's more like faking multiple desktops over multiple computers.

It's open source, so even though the main site wants you to buy it there are free builds around too.
