Question 2 PC / one mouse + keyboard

Do I need to connect the HDMI cables, as well ??
Depends, if you are happy to switch the monitor inputs each time you want to switch pc then no you don’t. If you want a single button to switch monitor, keyboard & mouse then yes.

FYI I am fairly sure that Ugreen usb switch is one I had and had a problems with. Every time my Apple Watch got a notification the keyboard & mouse would disconnect and reconnect.

I understand
That's a good thing, with the HDMI switch, but the question is : does it add input lag ???
Thanks, sizzling

Yes, of course.
Both PC's with HDMI 2.1
OK, not everyone realizes that to use a KVM you have to have a consistent output from both PCs. We get questions all the time where someone will ask about a laptop with HDMI and a PC with DVI.
I see a few HDMI 2.1 units, but I am not enthusiastic about any. My go-to reseller monoprice does not have an 8K unit. I might wait a little while to allow manufacturers to get products out. Reviews of the units I do see are mixed. So it is a question if you want to risk a couple hundred dollars on a unit that might work or might not.

Thank you
I will buy one without HDMI
Only for the mouse and keyboard, and when I switch from PC 1 to PC 2, for HDMI I'll use the TV input hdmi
