Absolutely Fantastic

Pros: Low price
Quality Construction
Great image quality
Old-school geeky switch vibe

Cons: None.

This product was a game changer for my workstation. I have 3 machines (two HDMI, one VGA), only one monitor (with a single VGA port), and no money or space for additional screens. Enter the Monoprice 4-Port VGA Monitor Switch! Now with the flip of a switch I can route my three machines (two through cheap HDMI-VGA converters) to a single VGA screen. I have not experienced issues with image quality as some seem to indicate. It just works! Now I have a great workaround while I save up for a nice HD display.

Does fine

Pros: Works, appears well built, inexpensive, doesn't require power.

Cons: None so far.

Since earlier reviews mentioned a ghosting problem, I ran several tests after getting this box and hooking it up. In my tests, the primary cause of ghosting was total cable length. At 16' total (10' + switch box + 6'), I saw noticeable, but not terrible, ghosting that did not depend on resolution or refresh rate. With a cable directly between source and monitor, at 10' there was a a very tiny bit of ghosting (which I probably wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't been looking for it carefully). At 6' (direct cable), I saw no ghosting at any resolution or refresh rate. Using this switch box, with 9' total cable length (3' + switch box + 6') (I didn't have a combination of cables that would add up to 10'), the ghosting was comparable to the 10' direct cable, indicating the switch box made little difference. At 6' total cable length (3' + switch box + 3'), I saw no ghosting at any resolution up to 1920x1080x32x60Hz.

Aside: The box is not heavy. if you plan to put it at the very back of a desk or table with heavy cables hanging down off it, the box will tilt back. Pull the box forward a few inches or put something on top. :-)

I'm happy with it so far.

Pros: Switches reliably between VGA outputs of four computers with no cross-coupling and no external power supply needed.

Cons: None

I tried designing a switchbox with four rotary switch wafers to do the same job. The parts priced out at over 10 times what this box cost.
