solid for me

Pros: simple DVI switcher between XP desktop and 7 Pro minidisplayport laptop

Cons: annoying red flashing light on active input

Overall solid, does what I want (switch between my old desktop running Pandora and my primary laptop on minidisplayport) using a mini-dp to DVI adapter cable. Image is clean, no resolution issues, overall I'm very satisfied.

Only neg is that the device has an annoying flashing red light to show the active input. I have bandaided this by piling a bag of coins in front of the input buttons, but flashing red lights should not be on the front of any piece of equipment unless the world is ending, imho.

But, still a good value for what I needed.

Pros: Inexpensive, dependable

I priced DVI Switchers and monoprice had the best price. I am using the switch daily and it has worked flawlessly.

Pros: Works well with DVI-D cables, detects which input signal is on and switches to that input

Cons: Bright red LEDs that flashes back and forth when no signal present. One Red LEDs flash even with signal present... will have to apply the electrical tape dimming option...

Wouldn't you know it, misplaced the third DVI-D cable I planned on using so figured I'll give it a try with the DVI-A cable with VGA adapter I had been using on my monitor. Recognized inputs on DVI-D cables on inputs but no signal through DVI-A cable.

Like it says... will not work with DVI-A cables. Oh well it was worth a try, now waiting for third cable to arrive.

Works great for me

Pros: Works great
Small footprint
Easy to install
Simple controls

Cons: Blinking LED to show selected monitor - might drive you crazy - you can cover with tape!

Switch box works great for me. Simple to use. If both computers are off it will automatically switch to the one you turn on. The LED stays blinking for the monitor you choose. That could drive you crazy - should just be a solid LED indicator. You could put a piece of tape over if it drives you nuts. No issues with this switch.

Pros: Works as it is supposed to

Cons: Not really a con but for my use, it would have been nice to have some double stick tape to mount it where I needed to mount it.

Product is nice looking, works as it is supposed to and haven't had any issues with the product.
