    Want one switch to go from personal to work computer using same monitors (2 external), keyboard, mouse, camera and external speakers.
    First computer - Lattitude E7440 with docking station.
    Second computer - Latitude 5420 also with docking station ( model K20A?)
    The monitors both have display port connections.

    What models of KVM switches would be the best suited?

    Hello Robert,

    Thank you for reaching out on our HelpCenter.

    We are assuming you're looking to set yourself up with two monitors displaying an extended desktop. To accomplish this, each one of your computers must have 2x video ports.

    We are also assuming that each of your computers' video ports are DisplayPort.

    If so, you will need a dual-video-head DisplayPort KVM switch that also supports USB peripheral sharing (for the camera) and audio (for the speakers).

    Hope this helps!
    We welcome your questions - please come back and ask us anything, anytime. You may also give us a call at 1-800-636-3434 for further clarifications on this thread.
