Can someone recommend a KVM switch that would support a 24" widescreen monitor 1920 x 1080, as I have read that some cables currently on sale only support non widescreen monitors. I wish to control 2 computers through one keyboard, mouse and monitor.

It is the resolution of the monitor and the connection type that matter.  What type of connection do you need, on both the computer and monitor side.

 

If you're using Windows on both machine Remote Desktop might be a free option, provided you don't need BIOS access.
