Recommend some switches
October 5, 2004 10:09 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking at keyboard/mouse/monitor switches with DVI & USB. I want to set one up with 1 PC and 1 PowerBook G4. Audio switching included would be nice. It's hard to beat the price tag on the Belkin SOHO ($200 including cables), but the series has gotten some tepid reviews. Everything else I've seen is closer to $400. Any suggestions?

Also - what keyboard would I use with such a device?

My black-and-silver Logitech keyboard is USB.

I priced out a DVI switch a few months ago and I thuoght the prices were outrageous.

Dr. Bott sells the Moniswitch 2 for $139, cables included. It's a manual switch, however.

For keyboards, try Macally.

Thanks, except that MoniSwitch actually isn't DVI.

It's unclear from the product specs whether Dr. Bott's DVI version will support larger-than-15" DVI monitors. I guess I need to put in a call to them.

Hm. And I only see one keyboard at Macally.com, which doesn't support Windows. Am I missing something?
