    just upgraded my sony e400 to the sony g400. they are the same monitor except the g400 has dual inputs on it. now i just have one monitor for both my mac and pc. i have a lot more room now. i'll try to find my mom's camera to take a pic.

    Nice. A piece of hardware that would do that would cost quite a bit.

    Me may need a monitor like that, since he may have two video cards in the near future (don't ask).

    two video cards both plugged into the same monitor? wouldn't that defeat the purpose?... the typical purpose of dual video cards being dual monitors for mirroring or extended desktop...

    I'll have two different cards for different programs, a Voodoo 5 PCI and an AGP GF3 Ti500 (I've lost faith in ATi making good drivers).

    Does that monitor work like a KVM switch?

    Damnit, I just bought an E400 about 2 months ago because I thought the G400 would only increase the resolution options.

    And the G400 dropped to the same price as my monitor within 2 weeks of my purchase!

    :mad:

    Next time I'm buying a Diamondtron based monitor. Those never drop in price.

    the g400 just went discontinued recently...

    it's not a KVM switch, it's a V switch only. :D
