The ST122VGAU VGA Auto Switcher is capable of switching between two VGA signals on a single display. It also prioritizes your VGA signals automatically. Featuring a primary and secondary VGA input port, the VGA switch automatically outputs the signal from the primary input. When the signal feed connected to the primary input port is cut, the switcher automatically defaults to the video signal on the secondary VGA input port.
Designed for maximum control and versatility, the VGA Auto switcher also offers manual control of connected signals with easy-to-use front panel buttons that allow you to toggle between video sources.
Automatic, prioritized switching Auto-sensing technology detects the loss of a signal and automatically switches to the secondary source, preventing a loss of display.
Switch between two VGA signals on a single display Sharing a single display between two computers saves the cost and desk space of purchasing an additional display.

Pros: High Quality Metal Construction Passes EDID information Hide it and forget it operation
Other Thoughts: I bought this because my 6 year old plasma's power supply took a dump and I had to resort to using my projector as the main family "television". It only has one VGA connector and I needed more. My wife isn't happy about the projector hanging from the ceiling in *her* living room and to keep the constant ear beating to a minimum, I went looking for an automatic VGA switch. (having a manual switch box would be too complicated for her seeing that she has trouble keeping the Harmony remote pointed at the entertainment center long enough to turn everything on/off... I love those phone calls at work :-) ) My main concerns were image quality, the ability to pass EDID (for 3D Vision/120Hz operation - yes I enjoy a game and a beer late after everyone's gone to bed), and having it switch automatically. This thing covered all the bases. It may be a little more than other boxes, but I didn't have to compromise one bit. Hopefully it will keep my wife happy...... na, who are we kidding? :-)
