The Gefen HW-KS-241 is a KVM Switch which enables you to switch easily and reliably between any combination of two VGA (or DVI) & PS/2 equipped computers - using only one keyboard, VGA or DVI monitor, and mouse. The VGA/DVI cross-platform switcher saves space - there's no need to work on a desk crowded with double monitors, keyboards and mouse devices.

How the KS-241 Switch works:

The KS-241 switcher switches VGA or DVI and PS/2 between two computers located near each other. Simply plug your peripherals directly into the back of the switch, connect the cables to the computers you want to control, push the front panel buttons to select the computer you want to work on, and you're switching. Switching between computers can also be done from your keyboard.

Note: A DVI-I to VGA video adapter will be required in order to switch VGA monitors. Being a DVI-I switcher, the product handles both DVI-D and VGA signals through one DVI-I video connector.
