This switch box features a heavy duty, easy-to-turn rotary switch enclosed in a metal case with rubber feet to protect your desk or tabletop. The rugged metal case withstands the rigors of everyday use, and helps prevent unwanted EMI/RFI interference. Each connector is wired straight-through in a pin-to-pin configuration to ensure compatibility.
Diagram above shows how one input such as a PC can connect to the VGA switch to distribute the signal to two switchable outputs (displayed one at a time) such as the two monitors shown. Also, one could connect the switch to two inputs, such as two PCs, to one output, a single monitor.
For immediate help, please with us!
Rated 5 out of 5 by BillGates from Space SaverI 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PD from Works as advertisedThis 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The Legend from Works GreatI use the switch box to select either DVD or laptop as input to our projector system. Just one flip of the switch changes the images displayed on the projector. Make your connections once and then just use the switch to make your selection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daan from VGA Switch Box works greatFor visitors who want to use their laptop in our training room, we added the Switch Box. Now it's very easy for them to switch from the desktop to the laptop and still use the same big lcd-screen.
instead of using this to power 2 monitors, can I use it to feed ONE Monitor and One TV?

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.

I'd like to use this device for switching signal sources which are NOT VGA, i.e. the pin layout is different (each pin is in use). Q: does the switch really switch each pin separately or are some pins connected? In particular: are pins 6 to 10 switched...

It is recommended not to use this switch with any other signal than VGA.
