    I have searched the forums and figured out that I need a KVM, but I could really use some help discerning exactly what kind would work for me and is reliable.

    I have a 13" mid-2009 MBP and I would like to be able to use it with my 27" Dell U2711 monitor (DVI) and Logitech wireless Wave keyboard/mouse. Those are connected to my Win7 desktop.

    I've looked at OWC, but there are so many KVM options and I'm just not sure how to know exactly what I need. I would really appreciate some assistance in making a choice.

    If I'm missing necessary information to determine what my options are, please let me know.

    Thank you in advance!

    Although there are lots of options, you just have to narrow down what you need. I would just read newegg reviews of ones that would suit you. It looks like you need:

    2 set of outputs
    DVI (do you have a mini display port adapter?)

    This one might do the trick (does audio too): ATEN CS62DU 2 Port DVI USB KVM with Bonded Cables and Audio
