    Can anyone recommend a decent monitor switch?

    Hey folks

    Quick question really but I'll explain the scenario:

    I want to use my TFT monitor as a display for both my PC and my Xbox. At the moment, I have to pull the VGA from the back and use the other device. I would ideally prefer a monitor switcher so that I can keep them both plugged in, so prevent any damage to the connectors and for ease and tidyness.

    Anyone got one or can recommend a decent one?

    I spotted this on Amazon from Google, any thoughts?

    amazon.co.uk/Por…9JC

    Basically I want a KVM but without the keyboard or mouse facility :P

    All help appreciated

    - Chris.

    Thing is I already have the VGA cable for the Xbox, and simply want to run both throgh the one monitor - I have a TV in here as well, so don't need my pc to be a TV :P Just to play the games through. Simply looking for a switch @)

    the link i gave does this and more...

    you use the VGA switch for xbox/pc it has audio switch too plus it is VESA mountable so you dont even see it.
    it has a remote to switch too instead of pressing buttons
