    Hello can anyone recommend a good sheilded VGA switch and cables?

    I have a toshiba 32wl56 with one VGA input and I connect my PC and X360 to it and would like a switch to do the changeover work for me.

    Cheers

    Hello all

    chaucer - better to go with the VP-211DS if cmspodwy is looking for an 'Automated' Switch.

    Its a bit more money but does a great job (as you well know :)) and takes the back ache out or having to lift a finger when your changing sources.

    cmspodwy - see http://www.kramerelectronics.com/indexes/item.asp?desc=211 and a set of Kramer cables would not be a bad shout either.

    Best regards

    Joe

    Yes the Kramer stuff is great value and high quality. A rare combination.

    Hey cmspodwy, how did the VP-201xl work out for you? Im currently looking for a good quality switch my Xbox 360 and PC and I think I might have found it :)

    Problem is, the VP-201xl seems to be selling for about £90 which is abit steep, seems like you got a great deal on ebay.

    Hows the picture quality? Any ghosting at all on PC or xbox?

    Cheers

    ps : anyone know where I can find the VP-201xl abit cheaper? Ive tried eBay, nothing on there.

    Ok well, i wonder if anyone can help me out? Im looking for a Vga switch to switch between my pc and xbox. I have bought a cheap one off ebay but the picture quality was not good enough, plenty of ghosting. Im not really interested in a KVM, I dont need any of that stuff. I cant really afford £90 at the moment for a Kramer, is there anything else I can buy? There must be some middle ground? :)
