I was also looking for a way to have my Xbox 360 and PC connected to the same screen. Went into a computer store and it was going to cost me £50. Looked on here and found this product and it was £8.99 with delivery. Thought it was definately worth a try.

Ordered it on a Sunday, and it came on the Tuesday, and it was standard delivery so cannot complain at the service.

Plugged it in, turned everything on, and it worked really well. Extremely easy to set up, and overall a really good product.

I read the other reviews of this product, and made sure I had the high quality cable going from the switch to the screen, and the not so good quality cable going from the switch to the PC. Have an excellent picture on the Xbox, and a very good one on the PC, has a slight blur to it, but doesn't make any real difference to the picture, as I am more interested in getting the best quality picture on the Xbox.

So if you need a cheap, and easy solution to have two things plugged into a screen (Xbox and PC), I definately recommend this product.

I was surprised to find a switch box like this for so little money, so I snapped it up.

When I hooked my computer up to my monitor via the box I was disappointed at first, as I got a ghost image across the screen. I experimented with several ways of connecting the cables and eventually found it was the cheap cable I bought at the same time, and by using a different cable the problem was resolved.

Now I'm very happy with the product, but be aware you need good quality cables, as other reviewers have also found.

The cable I ordered was the £1.99 Cabling4Less 2m SVGA Monitor Cable (M-M) by Cabling4Less from Aquarius Computers

Was a little tentative because of some bad reviews but when i got it was fine 1 of the edges was a little bent but not a problem. Switch itself is nice and solid i change it usin my feet. Bought along with belkin pure av and connected my 360 and my pc up to my 17" crt and it looked brilliant! Great for £3!

I found this in Maplins and thought would be the cure to using my work PC and my Home PC on a one AOC 22inch monitor.
Sadly didn't work out as well as I though as optinum resolution on was on my high spec home PC with the monitor is 1920x1080 and the VG 46 didn't like that. Research discovered is limited in resolution support, this meant my PC wouldn't talk to the monitor with this switch in the middle as only worked with lower resolution settings. The work Laptop was fine except resolution match wasn't perfect.

So whilst I didn't find it was suitable for my electronnics I am sure others with lower resolution requirements will be very happy.

I was a little apprihensive when choosing this cus of the two mixed reviews but went for it anyway. I got it yesterday and it works great for both my Xbox 360 and my PC. The one thing that i did notice that you will get picture quality issues with the cables more than the box. When i hooked my xbox up with my PC TFT monitor cable it was spot on, but when i used the Belkin Pro cable i bought at the same time as this box the picture was slightly blurry. A quick swap over so my PC is using that Belkin cable and the xbox using the TFT cable and both are nice and shape and look great. :o)

I would recommend this for using both a 360 and a PC on the same monitor. Takes the hassle out of swapping cables all the time. Just make sure you get a good cable when you order one of these.

Hi there just received my switch box today. The quality of it is very good and I have connected my Xbox 360 and PC to it. The switch and ports all good quality.

The picture for both is Superb. I don't know why some people having problems I really couldn't have asked for a better value product. Using decent cables might help for those having problems perhaps. Highly recommended Very happy with it!

I too wanted this product to share my monitor with my pc and xbox 360. Once it arrived I just plugged in all the cables and it worked perfectly. No ghost images or anything. I put the PC in slot 'A' and the xbox in slot 'B'.

The monitor is running off a Belkin Super VGA Home Theatre Cable.

Highly recommended

If, like me, you have two vga plugs and only one monitor input, this box allowes you to plug both in and switch between them when ever you like. There is no ghosting or loss of picture quality for either the PC or 360.
I had a problem because whenever I wanted to unplug my pc and plug in the 360 it would allways restart or crash the pc, but this box resolves this problem. As my PC hasnt crashed once since I borght the box.
Awsome :D!
You will need to purchase a male to male cable to go between the box and you monitor.
And another thing, the box doesnt allow for audio, so you'll still need to swap those wires, but their much easier to manage :)!

Not sure what the other guys are doing to get ghosting etcetera. But I bought this switch so that I could have my Xbox 360 and PC both connected to my 30" widescreen monitor.

This switch works great with no noticeable reduction of picture quality.

The only downside of this product is that it's a bit ugly. But hey, for four quid, who cares.
