ATEN 4port dual monitor
This review is from: ATEN CS1744 4-Port Dual-View KVMP Switch
Pros: This is a nice product. I love it it will switch both monitors, USB, Sound together or individually. It works great with my keyboard and wireless mouse.
Cons: The biggest con to me is not with the KVM itself but trying to get different PCs to work with it using just dual VGA. 2 of my PCs are fine. But my Lenovo Laptop which has 2 DVI-D only ports and 2 DisplayPorts is a pain. I let me do one DVI-D and a DisplayPort to VGA converter but not 2 by them selves. And another PC I have a high in graphics card with 1 HDMI, 1 Display Port, and 1 DVI-I. The DVI-I is easy as it has a converter to VGA, but if I do Display-Port to VGA for the second it can't see the monitor on rebot which requires me to plug and un-plug. If I do HDMI to VGA it works great if my monitor types are different. But if I use the same monitors it just switches wildly. If I had to go back I would pick one with 1 VGA and 1 HDMI. Not to fault this product which does work great!
