    I've been very happy with the current Belkin 4-port Omniview KVM switch.
    It's about $100 at CompUSA, powered off the PS/2 connections (no wall
    wart), and works perfectly with my Nokia 445PRO 21in monitor at 1800x1440
    24bit color (higher resolution from my G4 running OS X, connected via a
    PS/2->USB adapter).

    I have the SV431 model

    It smokes the Belkin models, especially if you are running high
    bandwidth 3D acceleration. I bought a Belkin, but I returned it after
    noticing the 3D got y. OSR doesn't seem to support many 3D cards,
    or if any high end 3D cards.

    I have several Belkin Omniview boxes. My office has a OmniView SE 4
    port version. The local ISP has two of the 8 port versions tied
    together for a total of 16 channels. Several of my customers also
    have them. No problems so far with anything other than trying to run
    1600x1200 resolution which is a bit of a stretch with 6 ft cables.
    Try to get decent video cables with shielded signal leads or you will
    have "smearing" problems.
