  • When all else fails...
    Isn't it funny how some people and vendors think that ancient technology is still worth top dollar??

    I didn't by this switch from the seller currently under the item listing, but I did buy mine through amazon for a comparable sum. It's ridiculous, but when you're in a jam I suppose you can't be too particular.

    My need for this item arose from my video game obsession. I was not trying to use two computers and one monitor, but rather one computer and a Sega Dreamcast (with vga adapter) to my LCD tv. Kvm switches would not work for me (I tried several) since there was no mouse or keyboard on the DC's end.

    So, this forced me to go retro. This switcher box didn't work immediately for the Dreamcast -- I kept getting a display message saying the signal had to be 60Hz (which I thought was the default anyhow). But eventually, and for no apparent reason (I was literally just checking all cable connections) it sprung to life and decided to work flawlessly.

    So, when all else fails -- you may want to take a trip back in time and try a good ol' A-B switcher box. It gets four stars for being a bile-tinged shade of beige, otherwise I have no complaints other than what people charge for ancient garage-sale technology....more info
    Using to connect two high end computers to a 27" lcd monitor [Polaroid]. I switch several times daily with no detectable loss of signal quality. Had very good quality cables and connectors to use from the start which may explain why my results were better than some...more info
  • Great but lots of shadows
    Great product, works as expected but creates lots of shadows on the screen that are not there when plugged in directly so they are artifacts from the switch box....more info
  • Manual Switchbox
    Well built and performs as advertised. I use it to switch between a 13 inch lcd monitor and a 32 inch lcd tv. Works great, very nice picture quality....more info
  • switch knob broke
    I bought this switch box to use so that I could hook my monitor up to both my laptop and my desktop. It worked very well at first, but now I am quite unhappy to report that the plastic switch knob has broken and so, to switch back and forth a plyers is necessary. Inconvenient at best. ...more info
  • Functions exactly as described.
    I got this to switch my LCD monitor between my computer and my Xbox 360 and it works really well. There is a little bit of artifacts or lines on the screen every once in a while but it is not very noticable and seems to be specific to the colors on screen. (It is more apparent in areas of white.) It might just be the quality of my VGA cables though, one of them is very old.

    It is super retro and if you like 80's style old school IBM big beige metal box stuff you will love this. The dial switch has great action, the only thing that would make it better is a sweet toggle switch....more info
  • Good View
    When you run a server and a laptop next to each other, or you just want more real estate space for your single monitor, using this switch box makes switching back and for and sharing another monitor easy....more info
