A/B monitor switcher?
    #4603866 - 08/31/05 03:32 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I'm looking for like an A/B switcher to go from two seperate computers to one monitor. It's mainly a matter of desk space, theres barely enough room for one monitor so I want to see if I can work something like this out. Does a monitor switcher exist? anyone know where I can get one?

There is an item called a KVM switch. Most of them will let you use multiple computers interfaced with one keyboard, mouse, & monitor. Here is a link

I use the small iogear kvm switch, that you can find for around $20.00,
but I wish I had paid a few bucks more for the one that has the button in the middle, so I didnt have to use the keyboard to switch pc,s.

Speaking from experience, I like those integrated ones with the mouse, keyboard, and monitor cables attached. Just make sure you check the resolution of those monitor cables before you buy. Also, I bought one of those linksys integrated ones, and I regret not buying one with software emulation for mice, and a connection for speakers and microphones. So if you care about the extra features of your mice(I've got the logitech mx700, and it just shows up as a generic mouse using KVM), and don't want to constantly switch speakers between the computers, get one with everything. Good luck.

I hear you, I have that logitech lx700, and to get all the features,
I just use the kvm, for the monitor, as soon as this iogear kvm dies
I will get one so I can get rid of this extra mouse, and keyboard.
Iogear, and Logitech dont play well together.
