Kanex Intros SnapX Switcher
Thursday, August 04, 2011
Posted by: Staff

Kanex today announced the release of SnapX, a new two-port switcher designed specifically for 24" and 27" Apple LED Cinema Displays. According to the comany, the USB-powered SnapX allows users to easily toggle between two different Mac computers including Macbook Air, Mac mini, Macbook Pro, and new Mac models with Thunderbolt through the display. It also features a compact "clip-on design" that holds the switcher on to the base of the display and built-in 5ft mini DisplayPort and USB cables for keeping everything neat from behind.

The plug and play SnapX features two mini DisplayPorts and two USB ports. Simply plug in both Mac computers to the built-in 5ft mini DisplayPort and USB cables. Users then plug in the ACD native display cables to the SnapX. Once linked, users are able to utilize the iSight camera and direct the audio of the connected computers through the ACD speakers without altering the audio or video quality. The user friendly one button design allows users to effortlessly switch between both sources.

The Kanex SnapX switcher is priced at $69. It's available now for pre-order and will begin shipping out in September.

Sounds like a nice product, but I worry a little about a degradation in picture quality. I have not had the best of luck with KMVs in the past.
