Any particular problems? I use mine main as a console extension tool 
rater than a kvm (I have spread across three different locations in the 
same building). I have three slave cards in use - each connected to an 8-
port Apex Omniview.

I can see that using one in a cluster config could suck (especially with 1U 
machines - where losing a PCI slot to the slave card is a big deal) but it 
seems to work well for what I'm doing.
