PC Monitor Switch Box
Posted on 2004-10-10
Hi, I have 2 computers and 1 monitor. I don't want to spend extra money to buy another monitor. I've been thinking about getting one of those manual A/B vga monitor switch boxes (about $20-$25), but have been hesitant because I’ve heard complaints about ghosting, and other problems.
I don't really need a KVM switch, (Keyboard, Video, Mouse). I am only interested in using one computer at a time (I don't need to switch between them on the fly)
My question is: Will I experience ghosting even if I only have one computer on at a time? If so, what would be the best solution for me? Will i need a KVM, or will my cheap switch box soluton work?
