    Monitor Switch

    Not sure if its the right forum so mods feel free to move

    Just wondering, do any of you know of a device that allows you to use one monitor for two pcs?

    Ie, if you only want to access one occasionally as you only use it for data storage/cd burning, having a 2nd monitor would take up a lot of space.

    Same for keyboard / mouse switching.

    Cheers

    you need a KVM switch. (KVM = keyboard, video, mouse)

    These are rather expensive but do the job very well. Beware that most KVM switches use PS2 mice/keyboards.

    I bought a monitor switch at the computer fair which only switches the monitor for around £15 including cables. The advantage/disadvantage of this means you have to ave an extra keyboard/mouse on your desk.


    You could always use remote desktop if you are only using the PC for data storage etc.

    ebuyer have a decent one for just under £30 from Belkin, which is fine provided your not running a high resolution.
