I am replacing equipment in some facilities I have:

brand new 40" LCD's

with up to 4 PC's connected to it.

The rooms are prewired with VGA cabling, and it's too pricey to replace it.

So I was going to use a 4-port KVM switch, but I am wary of the keyboard/mouse item.

Each machine - either desktop or laptop - has it's own keyboard/mouse. So I really just want to connect all machines to the LCD (which only has 1 VGA) and be able to switch between them.

Has anyone encountered or solved something similar, and can they recommend some hardware?
