Switch KVM switch with DVI-D and DisplayPort

    I am looking for a KVM switch with DVI-D and DisplayPort 2560 x 1600 60HZ video inputs, audio and USB mouse and keyboard.

    The inputs are from two computers, a Dell desktop that only displays high resolution through DVI-D and a laptop docked to a Dell Dock WD15 that only displays high resolution through a mini DisplayPort.

    The KVM switch could be Mini-DisplayPort or DisplayPort as I have an adapter cable.

    The video output can be DVI-D and DisplayPort to one monitor, a Samsung S32D850T.

    Hello Al,

    Thank you for reaching out.

    KVM switches tend to use identical video connections for connecting to computers as well as connecting to the console screen. This means that you will need to decide to go with either a DVI KVM switch (5 choices) or a DisplayPort KVM switch (13 choices), then use corresponding adapters.

    It looks like you'd be better off going with a DisplayPort KVM switch, since the selection is larger and most adapters are from DisplayPort to DVI (not the other way around).

    Hope this helps!
