    I need help finding a monitor. I have very specific requirements.

    The monitor must have

    - At least 24 inch
    - Two HDMI ports
    - A dedicated button on the front panel to easily switch between inputs.

    I have two machines connected and I'm frequently changing between them. I've tried a HDMI switch but that just seems to confuse windows, it thinks I've unplugged my monitor and the display settings get all messed up.

    you need to buy a nicer KVM switch with hdmi and you wont have that problem
    it will keep the power active so your computer wont know you are switching monitors
    if you buy a cheap TV hdmi switch, it cuts the power when you change monitor and that is what is freaking out your computers

    an LG ultrawide monitor will let you run two inputs at the same time, take a look and see if you can use that
