I had no idea for how to use a search function to find the answer here.
This is what I need...
I want to plug my mouse, keyboard, and monitor into one place. I want to hit a switch that makes them all go from one box to another.
Is there a product out there like that? Can anyone tell me what it's called?
I don't want to network the computers. I just want input / output switching.
I'm sure it has to be out there... I just don't know where to look. Please sticky me if you are unallowed to post an url. I'm sure I'm not the only person looking for such a thing.
Hehe just wait until you have multiple KVMs for multiple dual monitor comps and extra mice and keyboards so yo ucan operate different screens on different comps at the same time ;)
Sometimes I just use full screen VNC instead...
I bought a Belkin 2-port KVM switch. It didn't work properly. It was a nightmre in terms of reliability. Then I discovered VNC. As this is used within the office, the free version of VNC is fine, and works very nicely. I recommend it.
Or maybe give a bad story along with a good one?
I need to pick one by early next week. Are there brands that large chain stores carry that are worth buying?
I surely appreciate the advice (and additional advice since I last said so).
