    Really the title says it all; where can I find a KVM that supports 1920x1200 for DVI?

    thanks

    I should add, while 4 "input" spots would be nice, a 2-1 KVM is sufficient.

    There is a far less elegant, but more affordable option I found (after following your link). Gefen makes DVI switchers that do not handle USB; use one of those in conjunction with a cheap KVM that is $40-50 and you have a cluttered but inexpensive solution.

    The relevant links: I personally will probably use the Belklin OmniView SOHO 4 port VGA/USB/Audio KVM, which is $169 with 4-port Gefen DVI-only.

    The total, $520, is $330 less than an integrated solution from Gefen...

    For a two port KVM, the all-in-one Gefen does seem to be the better choice; $139 (2 port Belkin) + $250 (2 port DVI-only Gefen) = $380 vs $449 for an integrated Gefen...
