Default Looking for a KVM Switch

So I am in the market for a KVM switch. I am looking for the most basic and cheap solution that I can find. The only thing that I am worried about with cheap models is having some sort of loss in video quality due to the video feed having been split. Does such a thing happen? All I need to do is share a keyboard mouse and monitor between two towers and nothing more (printers/speakers/etc) So if anyone has had good or bad experinces with some KVM switches, some input would be greatly appreciated!

Iogear makes the best simple KVM switch. I have one myself and works GREAT:

or for a higher resolution,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817107418

You just tap the Scroll Lock key twice to switch between two PCs sharing the same mouse, keyboard, and monitor. Very simple to use. Plug and use.

Thank you. Those are well priced. Like one of the comments said ... I am worried about quality loss with my LCD! At least Newegg will take my product back!

I have an LCD too. Quality is great. I'm using a Samsung Syncmaster 152T digital LCD and it's as sharp as a CRT to an extent. I am very satisfied with it and recommended this to my friends too. I don't see any abnormal degradation with video quality, just the typical LCD limitations compared to CRT.
