I never got to really try this box but I would guess that in the right situation it would work.
This 245 electronic box is basically if you have two computers and want to share one monitor.
The situation I wanted to achieve was the *OPPOSITE* - I have one computer and wanted it to share two monitors (my PC monitor and my 46" TV)
I was going to return it but because of its small price it would not have been worth it after I paid the shipping. Plus, I was so, so pleased with everything else I purchased from MonoPrice I just decided to keep it.
What I wanted and needed was MonoPrice Item 54 - but they've been out of it for "at least" months, so I bought this one thinking it would work for my situation (above), which it did not.
I eventually bought the correct Item 54 on Amazon.com. That too is a super-great product and now I can switch easily between my PC monitor and TV at the flick of a switch! I do not notice any loss of signal or picture quality.
This purchase was my own error I was a little confused in buying this.
So I hope my review my help someone who is trying to do what I ultimately accomplished.
PROS: N/A - I never really got to try this product. See my review below.
CONS: N/A - I never really got to try this product. See my review below.
"If you can't find it at Monoprice, it doesn't exist!"
PROS: Excellent Item.
PROS: Ports clearly labeled plug it in and it works it has a button to detect sources, but every time it has detected sources automatically for me.
CONS: Might be nice for it to include 1 cable.
PROS: Inexpensive and takes very little space on my desk. Easy to switch displays with by pushing a little silver switch on its top.
CONS: Does not have a on/off switch and so it stays on all the time. However that has not been an issue so far.
