    Question Monitor switches

    Has anyone found a good svga monitor switch out there?

    I am looking to share one monitor with my PC and my MAC and I really don't want to go the KVM route.

    So far the two switches I have tried had ghosting problems (which seem to get worse over time). I am using super high quality shielded cables, but can't seem to find a box that is decent. Even when I completely remove the cable leading to computer from the switcher, I still have ghosting on the other.

    Please let me know if anyone has found an affordable solution.

    Thanks!!!

    BlackBox ServSwitch series is pretty good, but you're going to pay through the nose. Problem is, with KVM or V switches, you really get what you pay for and the sub-$200 ones suck at high resolutions.

    How often do you switch? A ghetto solution might be to run a 36" VGA extension cable to the front of your desk and simply plug/unplug whichever one you want.
