Questions and Answers
Imagine my surprise when not only does it hook up flawlessly with little hassle, it even outputs at 1920x1200 on my desktop just fine! Looks like 1200 is the maximum vertical resolution, but it can do 1600 AND 1920 horizontally. Anyone on the fence because of this, worry not, this thing is well worth it.
tldr: The maximum resolution isn't 1600x1200, it's actually 1920x1200, which is even better.
Product is simple to hook up, and works as advertised. My only tiny issue is that the red "selected" indicator light blinks when selected - I would have preferred it just to burn steady - with two of them blinking away it can make you crazy. ) I've positioned the switches behind my monitors so I don't have to look at them.
Other than that, I bought two of these to be able to switch back and forth between a home and work PC, both of which are dual monitor capable (work PC doesn't support analog signals, so I couldn't just use the analog in on the monitors - and I wasn't going to game on analog on my home PC). They're awesome and you can't beat the price.
PROS: Works great
Easy to install
CONS: Blinking LED to show selected monitor - might drive you crazy - you can cover with tape!
PROS: Works as advertised. Great for switching PC to PS3 on the same monitor.
CONS: Stupid blinking red light
PROS: Inexpensive, dependable
This box was exactly what I needed. Simple, no-frills, and reliable it's made switching between the two an absolute breeze. I've been using it for 2 months now and I've never even had to manually select which source I want it to take it senses it automatically depending on which one is powered on.
Beautiful. I highly recommend it.
PROS: Sturdy, simple, reliable, great value.
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.
