Can i use my 27" iMac using a mini DisplayPort instead of an Apple Cinema Display?
Yes, you are able to use the SNAPX in "Target Display Mode" with the iMac running Mini DisplayPort. You will need an additional MDP cable to connect the SNAPX to the iMac.

Can the "Output" 1 x USB female port be used for a common wired keyboard and mouse (on keyboard USB port) simultaneously switchable with the display between the two Macs?

Yes it can, however the Apple Cinema Displays are equipped with USB ports on the backside. This is usually where you'd want to hook up the Keyboard/Mouse; The ACD USB cable should be connected to the SnapX female USB port to utilize functions such as using the ACD isight camera rather than the MacBook's isight.

Will this work with the LAST MacBook Air as well as the NEWEST MacBook Air?
Yes it works on all Macs with Thunberbolt video output as well as older Macs with Mini-DisplayPort output.

Can you use this product with the older DVI cinema displays, when using adapters?
Yes, you can use our iAdapt DVI with the SnapX to allow the connection of a DVI display rather than using the Apple Cinema Display, however you will then need to plug in a usb mouse/keyboard to the 1x USB female port on the SnapX to utilize the (1) Keyboard/Mouse for (2) Machines.

I'm using the SnapX with a Macbook Pro 17, Mac Mini and the 27" cinema display. The SnapX switches as intended from one unit to the other but occasionally the SnapX will switch on its own to the computer I am not using. How can I prevent this from happening? It's frustrating. Other than that, it works fine. I do get some flickering when switching to the other unit but I close FCP and reopen to stop that. Thank you. Steve
The SnapX should not switch on it's own. The only time it will switch is if you are introducing a new source to the device. Once it detects a new source, it will automatically switch over.

It seems to me it should be able to support the now discontinued 30" Cinema Display, and probably like may video display adaptors for Apple Cinima Displays, the 30' display is not listed to be competible simply it is no longer produced, am I correct in any of this?

The SnapX is in fact compatible with the 30" ACD, however it requires an adapter to connect to the SnapX. Our iAdapt DVi & C30 both work to power 30". The iAdapt DVi is single-Link DVI so the maximum resolution on the 30" would be 1280x800, on the other hand the c30 is a dual-link dvi solution allowing the monitor to run in it's native 2560x1600 resolution.

will it work with two Macs with mini-display ports, and an old Cinema Display (23') with DVI port ?
Yes, as long as you use one of our Mini Displayport to DVI adapters (C247D OR C247DL). Thanks.

I use this product between my iMac and my work laptop (lenovo) 2. What I love best of the product is the simplicity of pressing one button to switch between monitors 3. The plastic, I would have not had an issue paying more for an aluminum shell. Also the iMac doesn't go to sleep when the Kanex is plugged in, the monitor does, but you still hear the iMac running. Problem goes away once the Kanex is unplugged. 4. Keep up the great work!!

I use this product to connect two MacBook Pros to an Apple Cinema Display with a Macally keyboard and Logitech wireless mouse (Marathon Mouse). Good news: it allows me to switch between the two computers with a push of a button. Bad news: every so often (typically several times per hour), the screen will blank and then come back. Sometimes it comes back as though I had unplugged the monitor (so the windows all resize to the laptop screen size). Sometimes when I push the button, instead of showing one of the Macs on the Cinema Display, neither of them are showing. So, when it works, it works great, but the intermittent glitches make it quite annoying.

1. I use it multiple times a day to switch between 2 machines. 2. It does what I need. 3. The first one I bought was faulty in one Mini-Display adaptor and this second one is also a little "temperamental" in that sometimes unplugging and plugging back in seems to make a difference. My original Apple Display Mini-Display Port plug does not have this problem so I can only assume it is your plugs. I would have happily paid a higher price for a better quality product. This applies to a more solid housing and button to (especially) high quality adaptors and cables... 4. If you are playing in the Apple market do not be afraid to produce highest quality items and making them expensive, anyone who owns a Apple machine is used to this...

1. I use this as a switch between my Crossfire 5770 XFX Radeon HD PC and my 2012 MacBook Air 13" 2. I like this design and simplicity. 3. The cables are sensitive to being bent. I had to RMA the first one I bought. 4. I didn't like having to pay more to buy from Kanex only to have to pay return shipping for a faulty product. Thankfully your customer care is close by to my living situation.

It's a good solution, one of the better A/B-type switches I've user in general. The switch itself does sometimes get stuck if you don't push it on the center, which can cause repeated switching until it gets pushed again & un-stuck. But, this allows two laptops to share one monitor. A downside is that the laptops themselves re-shuffle the items on desktops when they lose their connection to the monitor; it would be better if they could somehow be fooled into thinking the monitor was still there when the switch was pressed, so that when you switched back, everything was still in the same place....

I had a need to reactivate an older Mac mini (to run an older paint application, which I missed very much), while I am primarily running on a more current model. I have only one Cinema Display, and it became a burden to down everything and change all the connections. Then I discovered Kanex SnapX. It is a marvelous product and has worked perfectly for me. It's a great addition and makes my work so much easier. I would recomment this product to anyone who has the same need.
