KVM needed that supports DisplayPort

I need an inexpensive KVM that supports three (3) display ports.

I can't seem to find anything under $100 that supports the DisplayPort (dp v1.2 or 2) and does this all in one device.

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

This product works and I have it but it needs to support the third computer.  It only supports two.

That doesn't quite meet the specs.

Odd that that Lindy manual displayport switch is so expensive in USA, in UK it is only £26 = $35

They are only dumb copper switches, no electronics so you can use 3 of them to create a 4-port switch, however it is not a KVM switch anyway, just a video switch, just V without K or M.

Since your example was just a video switch do you need keyboard and mouse switched as well?

BTW, I doubt Lindy actually make it, see https://www.reichelt.com/gb/en/switch-2-port-displayport-1-1-manual-delock-87668-p179864.html?CTYPE=0&MWSTFREE=0&PROVID=2788&wt_guka=54951053675_263550071948&PROVID=2788&gclid=Cj0KCQjw3ebdBRC1ARIsAD8U0V47jgxpXT7Idt6wYySqt3ixfSPjpjo0vxVAllIllcOtvITWY9ylk7waAkmYEALw_wcB&&r=1 for example which is identical except for the badge.

Certainly not finding a 3 or more port for under $100, or $200 for that matter.

Nope, most are upwards of $300.  One possibility is using an HDMI or DVI switch (which are easier to find in the $150 or below range).   DisplayPort to DVI or HDMI cables are about $10 in general.    If your monitor supports either than go with it, if it only supports display port, you can also use a xx to display port cable on the monitor side (the switch will still work.  .

I considered pricewatch.com but so far on Amazon or newegg, I haven't found anything under $100 that directly supports DisplayPort, but that's still the goal.

I took a look on eBay just to see if they had anything and found this "new" 4 port display port /USB KVM for under $100

That's outstanding Fred.  I would much rather it be Amazon but if it has to be eBay then so be it.

Could you add a splitter to the Lindy you have?

If i understand you you have 3 computers? to one display?
andyalderCommented:
I think that's the opposite of what they want, a splitter lets you have two screens on a single port.

They could use 2 Lindy ones for 3 PCs but not much cheaper than the one Fred found and that one does keyboard and mouse too.
