Hello guys.
I wanna ask you if it's possible to use my LCD Monitor Samsung 2443 BW,for PC and Mini Mac. The problem is,i only have 1 x DVI slot on the monitor. VGA too,but i don't wanna use the VGA.
If i buy this:

That switch uses VGA, not DVI.

Just to say, i share a monitor with both DVI & VGA with my PC and macbook.

PC on VGA
Macbook on DVI.

I notice no difference, VGA looks just fine to me. Just TRY out the VGA, i'm sure it'll be fine.

I can't believe those are $100+! Check ebay for used ones for a substantial discount. You're better off purchasing another DVI LCD monitor for $100, assuming you have the space.

Some people eye's are different but I can sure notice the difference between DVI and VGA. Hard to believe a few years ago we all used to use VGA,analog :p

What you need is a DVI Switch if you are only looking to switch between two sources to one DVI monitor. I would check KVMSwitchTech as they offer a wide range of DVI Switch and DVI Splitter solutions.
