What is a good KVM switch?


What is a good KVM switch?

I want share with different computers... two monitors (DVI attached), one keyboard (USB attached) and one mouse (USB attached).

Suggestions?

Just something to note, KVM's that support dual monitors seem to be crazy expensive!

I'd buy two cheap ones and use one to just switch the second monitor, dunno how well it would work though.

You need to split the video signal then.
