Summary: This inexpensive device is simple to use, compact and allows us to easily switch the use of the monitor between two computers. We recently bought a refurbished computer because our old on was getting clogged and I do not have the expertise to fix it. We bought another which was empty but with windows and Microsoft Office for $150. Switch about $20 and now we are back in business.
Summary: You are buying three VGA ports on a sturdy manual switch with no cables. I added a monitor-less Win7 PC to my XP/Ubuntu PC and was manually replugging the monitor VGA cable between systems. One new VGA cable between one PC to the A-port, one new VGA Y-splitter between the other PC and the B-port as well as my CRT TV and the existing VGA monitor connection into the switchable port on this new box works great for me.
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.
