That's a device to use 1 keyboard, monitor (video) and mouse with 2 computers (although not simultanously, of course). If you only connect the video port it will work flawlessly.
Visit your local computershop, or buy a nice one on the net.
I have 2 computers. A laptop and a desk top. They are both part of my home network. I am planning to get a 22" lcd monitor. It has both vga/dvi ports to connect it to a computer. My desk top only has vga but the laptop has both.
My laptop is basically my main computer, but I fire up the desk top to access files that it has or trouble shot network problems, that sort of thing. I don't use the desk top too often, maybe a dozen times a week or so.
I want to connect the 22" to my laptop and use it as the primary screen for that system, but I also want to get rid if the big old space hog 17" crt monitor connected to my desk to and somehow be able to use the 22" as that computers monitor when I use it, and use the laptops 17" display for it.
So I guess what I'm saying is this......
When I use my laptop, I want to use the 22" as the primary screen.
When I use the desk top I want to use the 22" for it's primary screen.
When using the laptop and desk top at the same time, I want to be able to use both screens at the same time (22" for the desk top and 17" for the laptop).
I was thinking of using something like the Belkin flip, but I don't want to order one if it is not going to let me do what I have in mind.
Any suggestions or ideas I may not have thought of????
Currently both systems are running Win-XP.
