I haven't used a KVM switch before, but find myself in need of one. I've got one keyboard and mouse (both USB), one monitor (accepts both VGA and DVI), and one set of speakers. I have a Macbook which I currently connect to my monitor via DVI. I also have a desktop which I connect to the monitor via VGA. I switch the display inputs with the button on the monitor, so that's not such a big deal. However, physically moving the keyboard and mouse back and forth is a real nuisance with the way my desk and stuff is orientated, so I am in search of some sort of switch. I just need a solid USB and audio switch for 2 computers. If it does DVI too and doesn't cost my first born, great, but I could save some money and not worry about that. I can deal with a manual button/switch; I don't necessarily need hotkeys.
I've searched the web for reviews and read most of them on newegg. What I've gotten is very mixed reviews of some of the products and very few reviews of others, so I'm in uncharted territory. I really worry about dropped signal or random switches, as many say their keyboard or mouse stop responding or it switches without them pushing the button.
Thanks in advance.
