KVM

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I know my post is a bit long but please read carefully:o

 

so after a little research, I am planning on buying a KVM switch for my 2 PCs ( one custom build "NEW" and another prebuilt COMPAQ Pentium 4 "OLD")

note: I've never used a KVM switch before just know its function.

I only need to connect 2 PCs so I know for sure all I need is 2 ports switch

 

mainly I have 2 concerns:

#1 does it matter if the KVM is cheap or expensive or of a known brand?!? the avialable in my area are TRENDnet TK-207K \\ and other Chinese unknown manufacturers. my budget is below 50$

 

#2 is there a way that I don't need to calibrate the screen resolution(also other settings) every time I switch between the 2 PCs>:(

thus the hardware is different and one PC have win7 the other win10.

 

really sorry for the long post but I needed to explain exactly my issue here, any advice or tip is much appreciated so please share your experience .

Thanks in advance:D

 

is there a way that I don't need to calibrate the screen resolution(also other settings) every time I switch between the 2 PCs

and I didn't know what to search on google for this, if anyone could provide useful link or info about this

Just use separate cables straight to the monitor, no need to route them through the KVM or switch on the PC-end
