Hello,

I am wondering what is the best KVM switch to buy for my situation. I have two computers- one is my personal PC that is hooked up to 2 4K monitors, and a 4K Wacom Cintique. My other PC, is for work, and it requires a webcam, audio, and at least one monitor. I connect to my work PC through VPN. I would like to reduce the amount of hardware I have in my ofice space, and am wondering if I can connect the two computers via a KSM switch, and if so, which switch is best considering my peripherals? Thank you in advance.

The tablet could pose a problem. It might not work through a switch. If all you need is 2x4K@60hz over HDMI...

Cool thanks I am actually connecting them via display port... which would be ideal. Also, I know there is a switch that can handle the 22 HD cintique, but I have the 27"... Heres the link to the 22 compatible;

The only KVM on amazon I could find capable of switching 4 displays topped out at 4k30; which is useless for any computer you're expected to sit down in front of and work on.

Does this work with one monitor for two pcs? It mentions dual displays; But what if the need is for two pcs to one monitor?

Yeah, this supports 2 PCs up to 2 monitors.

If you only have one monitor just plug one monitor into the KVM and you should be good to go.
