I just bought a Dell 38" Ultrawide (D3818DW) and I wanna get all the cables I need while I wait for it to arrive. I want to use the KVM feature of this monitor between my MBP mid-2012 and my PC so I can switch seamlessly between them.
I've read that I need a Mini-Display Port to Display Port cable to connect my MBP. And to use the KVM feature, I have to also connect a USB downstream cable to the MBP.
However, I also read that connecting a MBP via USB-C can bypass having to connect a USB Downstream to use the KVM feature. My Mac has a Thunderbolt 2 port and two USB 3.0 ports.
So, can I just use something like the StarTech TBT3TBTADAP TB 3 to Legacy TB adapter for display and KVM? So I won't have to have two wires sticking out of my MBP when using the KVM feature.
