[ubuntu-uk] KVM switch - suggestions?

I've been using a Belkin Flip usb KVM switch to share keyboard, monitor 
and mouse between my main Ubuntu box and a second box (sometimes it's 
one running Ubuntu, sometimes one running Debian).

Since upgrading my Ubuntu systems to Hardy, I've had problems with this 
set up, as the screen resolution is not detected properly through the 
KVM switch.  This has got worse recently, and I'm beginning to suspect 
that the KVM switch is failing.  (I get the same issues with a 
completely different monitor.)

Do any of you good folks use a decent KVM switch that works well with 
Ubuntu/Debian systems?  If so, I'd be grateful for enough detail about 
make and model to enable ordering.

I appreciate that the Belkin switch is a fairly cheap one;  would I get 
better results with something a bit more expensive?
