    KVM Swithces, how do they effect display quality?

    I'm thinking about getting a KVM switch to run a Server from my desk as I don't have enough room for anouther momnitor. I am wondering how much signal degredation I would experience with one of these switches?

    Here are the specs of the model i'm looking at:
    Linkskey 2 Port KVM Switch with 2 Sets of high grade cable (L=1.2m) Push Button Switch. Compact size design, easily portable. Hot Plug - Add PCs or remove connected PCs for maintenance without powering down the KVM switch or PCs. Very high Video Quality - Up to 1920 x 1440. Band width: 200MHz. Model KVM-K102SK

    Sounds like the one I have and I see no degredation in my video signal. I tried one of the 'mechanical' ones and that sucked bigtime. So I got a D-Link and it works great.

    If you're not using high resolutions such as 1600x1200+, I doubt you'll have a problem with the degredation-especially if you're not doing graphics work. There will be a degree of degredation, but it shouldn't be too bad in lower resolutions.
