Simple solutions are the best.
Select between two DVI-D source devices to show on a single display (one at a time), or switch a single source to show on two screens (one at a time).
I've known people that have suffered through using inappropriate displays for important work just because of the hassle and potential problems with constantly swapping cables over to alternate panels. Don't be daft! It's a easy as using this clever little DVI-D switch!
But simple to use doesn't mean light on features. This particular DVI-D switch is fully reversible, so instead of switching your computer video between two monitors, you can instead switch one great monitor between two computer video outputs!
It can handle WUXGA (1920x1200) easily, which includes full HD 1080p, plus full HDCP pass-through and easy push-button manual switching!
Input & Outputs:
- 2 x DVI-D Single-Link Digital Video Inputs (Female)
- 1 x DVI-D Single-Link Digital Video Outputs (Female)
- Reversible - split one input to two displays (one at a time)!
Awesome features include:
- Cable Chick 12-Month Warranty!
- Suitable for devices with a DVI-D connector
- DVI-D Digital Video only - no audio or analogue video pass-through
- Apple Mini-DVI and HDMI compatibility via adapters (not included)
- Dimensions: 180 x 120 x 30 mm
- Colour: Black

I need to connect a Powerbook G4 laptop and a PC to an apple cinema display and be able to change over easily, will this do the job?
"Yes, this device is designed specifically for switching between two different DVI devices.
However in some cases Apple computer systems use a special Mini-DVI plug which will require a Mini-DVI to DVI adaptor to connect to most standard DVI enabled products."

I would like to connect 2 computers to a 23" Apple Display (1920 x 1200 resolution). The computers are a Powermac G4 (Radeon 9000 video card) and a 2-year-old G4 Powerbook (can drive a 30" screen to 2560 x 1600). Can the 2-Port DVI Switch Box switch at up to 1920x1200 pixels?

I need to connect 2 computers to one monitor with the computers sending out male dvi cables and one female adapter on the back of the monitor
does this box have 2 female and 1 male dvi adapters?
The box that you are inquiring about has -
Input 1: DVI-D Female Digital Video.
Input 2: DVI-D Female Digital Video.
Output 1: DVI-D Female Digital Video.
However, if you needed to convert any of these plugs I would suggest you use a DVI adaptor to turn a male to female.

Hi, I Have a ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT graphics card with DVI-I (dual link) - 29 pin combined DVI outs. It looks much the same as DVI-D plug. Will my DVI-I work with this?
"Yes. Your 2600XT can output both DVI and VGA from its DVI-I socket, so there's no trouble using DVI-D cables and this DVI switch box to run DVI-D monitors."
