Control 2 high-resolution dual DisplayPort computers with a single console. The SV231DPDDUA 2-Port USB Dual DisplayPort KVM Switch with Audio and USB 2.0 Hub combines next generation digital display standards with seamless KVM control, allowing you to switch between 2 dual head or twin DisplayPort systems. Also ideal for systems with a single DisplayPort output, and a second video source such as DVI or HDMI, using a low cost accessory adapter.

Delivering multi-computer control for high-res multimedia applications, the dual view KVM supports resolutions of 2560x1600 (@60 Hz) with DisplayPort HD audio, as well as 2-channel analog stereo audio and microphone input.

StarTech.com Dual DisplayPort USB KVM Switch with Audio & USB 2.0 Hub is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can't recommend - way too twitchy and buggy I really should've paid attention to the other reviewers' experiences. I have also found that there's too much magic involved to get my two-PC/two monitor desk setup to work consistently with this thing (I have an HP Z240 desktop, a docked HP Zbook 15 G2 laptop, and a pair of slightly older Philips 240B's). Full disclosure: the cables from KVM to monitors are DP-to-DVI, since they lack DP inputs. Oh, and one laptop dock output is DVI, so there's a powered DVI-to-DP converter, also StarTech, in the mixFunctionally this works as well as other KVMs - a quick keyboard sequence always triggers the one-two switch, and the mouse, another USB peripheral, and audio swap seamlessly, but invariably one monitor or the other will randomly go dark with a "no video input, going to sleep" advisory. No amount of "re-detect monitor" triggering at either PC works. And I've played endlessly with both PC's advanced EDID settings and can't make a difference. It seems like it's more likely to fail the longer I stay at either PC without switching. Though I can eject and redock the running laptop and usually recover on that end.No, too much of a daily hassle. Eventually I'll find a better solution.
