    Can the DRM1712F "2X1 Enhanced Powered DVI Switcher" connect & switch between two monitors connected to one source?
    A shopper on Sep 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The switcher was made to do just the opposite, which is the way we use them- to switch between two sources for one monitor. That said, I don't see why it wouldn't work the way you're suggesting. DVI cables are bi-direcrtional.
    Will this work for 144 Hz setup? I have a PC and a working Laptop, after work I would like to easily switch input from work laptop to PC without having to switch any cables over. Given that I have a 144 Hz compatible Monitor + DVI cable, will this switch not bottleneck the 144 hz potential?

    Higher resolutions
    Tested it and yes, it does work with 1920x1080 & 1900x1200.

    Resolution NOT as advertised!
    I just got one of these so I could use my desktop and my PS3 on the same Samsung LCD monitor that has a native resolution of 1920x1200. I actually didn't even notice that the maximum listed resolution is 1600x1200. The notice is plastered in big numbers on the box, though. I figure what the hell, I'll test it anyway.

    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.

    Great product at a great price.
    I can confirm that this product, despite the description, supports resolutions at least up to 1920x1080 and 1680x1050 with no apparent issues.

    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.

    Works great for me
    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 great

    Small footprint

    Easy to install

    Simple controls

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

    Awesome product
    Its an awesome product that does as it advertised. I bought it to be able to play my ps3 on my computer monitor and the monitor only had one DVI port. The switch between pc and ps3 is relatively fast and easy with a click of a button. Only complaint is that red blinking light. Covered it up with black nail polish. Works like a charm.

    PROS: Works as advertised. Great for switching PC to PS3 on the same monitor.

    CONS: Stupid blinking red light

    Sweet Switch
    This is exactly what I needed to display my PS3 and PC on the same monitor. I can further verify that this works 100% with a 1920x1200 resolution. I also love the solid construction and the retro design of the unit. One point almost removed for the blinking light on the front, but solved in 2 mins with a small piece of electrical tape.

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

    PROS: Inexpensive, dependable

    How did I ever get along without this? I had a single flat monitor that I kept switching DVI inputs between my desktop computer and my PS3. It got to be a pain in the ass and I knew something like this had to exist somewhere. Radio Shack either didn't have what I was looking for or had a cable splitter that was overpriced and probably wouldn't have done it the way I wanted anyway.

    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.

    CONS: None.

    Great Product
    Works very well for what it's intended, thus 10/10. However, for those wondering, it does NOT work as a 1 in - 2 out (ie: a 1X2, or 1 source, 2 display switch).

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

    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.
