Summary: I use this to to switch between my computer monitor and TV, for some reason the text on my computer looks washed out and soft, but the video streaming on my TV is perfect, still trying to find a solution.
Summary: I have had it for about 3 weeks now and have used it consistently since then. My use is to toggle my main monitor from home desktop use as a single monitor to work use as the secondary monitor to my laptop. The switching is mechanical in nature, but works without a 'hitch'. I did notice that when I went from direct connection of my monitor to connecting through the switch, the desktop and laptop allowed a wider range of monitor resolution selection.
Summary: This switch works great except It will not let my Acer monitor auto select the correct resolution of 1600x900. The best I can get is 1280 x 1024. My monitor is plug and play but when connected to the switch the pc says it is a generic monitor.
Summary: Have a small desk that can only support one monitor. I have an old computer and a newly purchased computer. I am leery that not all files transferred from the old to the new. So in the meantime I am going to use both pcs and transfer files over accordingly until I am comfortable. The switch box and male to male VGA cables I purchased allow me to see each computer separately with ease.
Summary: I bought this about a week ago, and for my Xbox 360 Slim it works great; video comes in nice and clear! But when I switch to my old PC, it falls short. My monitor will say "Video Out Of Range" right in the middle of the screen, which I can luckily clear by pressing the menu button. Also, the source itself is still displayed; I can see the desktop, though it is noticeably blurred.
Summary: This item was cheap enough that I was willing to "gamble" on it as being effective. It offered the solution I was looking for, being able to have two computers share one monitor. However, when I set it up, the A switch setting worked perfectly, not so much for the B switch. I was aware of this risk, as other commenters have had similar problems with this item not working on the B side. Again, it was cheap enough that I was willing to give it a try.
Summary: My love for this switchbox lasted all of two weeks. I loved the convenience of using my PC while still allowing my daughter to use her laptop (after she broke her screen). It was a beautiful romance that lasted two weeks. Now my heart is broken along with the B button on the switchbox. Going to take it back and hopefully, upgrade to a better model.
