Rated 5 out of 5 by this guy plugs from Swithes, but with caviats I purchased this to replace a messy HDMI based KVM. It works... ok. The big problem I found was that it doesn't always "switch" between two macs (13" macbook pro's, different generations). It forces me to unplug and plug the cable of the currently active one to get the monitor detected. Once switched, it works perfectly. I tried making sure that both laptops are on when switching, but whatever I try the monitor says "no signal" and I have to re-plug the cable to get it going, which defeats the purpose: I could plug cables easily without a KVM. I don't know if it's the power issue, as it doesn't have a dedicated power source, but I've noticed that about 1 in 5 times when both laptops are on--it works, but if the one I'm switching to is in sleep, it will not connect. Ever. I'm using a relatively recent Dell 4k monitor.
