3 out of 5 eggstakes a moment to switch

Pros: Lets you switch 2 inputs on either of the two outputs

Cons: There is no sync between the two inputs, so when I output it to a projector, each time I switch, the projector goes blank and says searching for signal for about 8 seconds before it outputs the new signal. A VGA monitor takes about 4 seconds.

Other Thoughts: If you need this for presentations, get a higher end Kramer or something that does it instantly and keeps projectors in sync.

5 out of 5 eggsThese things do just what I need them for!

Pros: Great item for a digital DJ who needs to switch between two video sorces, so long as they are VGA, and output to two different LCD/Projectors.

Cons: They can't make me a cup of java!!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Product

Pros: Easy to install, I use it for my xbox 360 and my computer to one monitor. Crystal clear picture with Both machines at 1920 x 1080 with my LCD Monitor. A must have, if you don't want to swap vga cables every time.(which can probably damage the pins eventually plus screwing them in is a hassle).

Cons: No real cons that I've found.

Other Thoughts: You have to buy vga cables seperate, but you probably knew that. It takes up an extra electric socket on your outlet/surge protector.(probably for the signal boosting reasons I'd guess)
Color scheme could be better, but I'm not that bothered by it.

5 out of 5 eggsHappy mcgee

Pros: It does the job and I'll just leave it at that.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've got it hooked up to my pc and 360. It feels pretty pimperish to switch them between my lcdtv and my lcd monitor. I'm a dork like pj (was that his name?) in grandma's boy. Haha. It's pretty bombay.
