Too Many Macs and Not Enough Monitors? Kanex Unveils Its SnapX Switch



Kanex just unveiled its SnapX today, a $69 switch that connects a single 24- or 27-inch Apple Cinema Display to a pair of Macs and allows toggling between the two.

The SnapX will connect to practically any Mac — iMac, MBA, MBP, Mini, you name it — through the display (or Thunderbolt) port. Beside standard video output, iSight camera images and audio can also be output through the connected Cinema Display. Bummer: The SnapX will also eat up a USB port on each connected Mac; and there’s no support for iPad output.

    Does this thing also transmit USB mouse/keyboard data like most KVM switches? Or is it strictly for video only?

    I just paid $23.87 for an iPod 2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $657 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from,

    When is this site going to do something about these comment spammers?

    We’re doing what we can. We’re growing fast, and it’s attracting a ton of spammers. Bear with us, we’ll get it sorted.

    Good question — I didn’t see anything about transmitted data in the press release.
