KVM for MBP 13" and Win 7 PC

I have a Windows 7 desktop PC and a Macbook Pro 13" 2012. I want to share the same monitor, mouse and keyboard between the two machines. Can anyone recommend a KVM that they are using on the same setup that works and gives full 1920 x 1080 resolution for both PC and MBP?
I currently have an Aten KVM which worked ok with my old 2006 MBP but not with the new one. When switching to it through the KVM the monitor displays 'out of range' but it works fine when connected directly, so I don't think the KVM supports the new thunderbolt port.
I'd like to get a new KVM but one I know will work ok. Thanks.

First of all, you need to make sure that any KVM you buy will provide the proper isolation between ports (PC and Mac) and that when switching, does not "spike". You can easily cause damage with a KVM so be careful of what you use.
