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.
Summary: Works great to switch computer output from my monitor to our TV. The only problem that I had was that when switching back and forth, the settings on my computer monitor ended up being changed so I had to change them back - not a big deal!
