I use this switchbox so two computers can share one monitor. I had separate monitors for each computer but I only used one of them once in a while. My desktop was too cluttered, so I use this box to eliminate one monitor. It works well, the switchbox doesn't interfere with the resolution of each system. I have two different resolutions and they switch when I switch the box. It's not high tech but it suits my needs.

        This unit is great for what it is. It does tend to cause the screen to have a 1/2 second glitch when you flip the switch. If you want a smooth transition, buy an expensive fader.

          • Q:

            instead of using this to power 2 monitors, can I use it to feed ONE Monitor and One TV?

              A:

              This switch box is designed to send a single VGA source to one monitor or one TV. You would not be able to send the signal to both simultaneously with this switch. So if you are wanting to do one or the other, it would work. If you want to display the same source on both the monitor and TV, you would need a splitter like 29587.
