Pros: We have an older LCD TV with only one HDMI port, but we connect a PC, chromecast and BluRay player to it and switching was a pain. This has totally solved that problem perfectly. It comes with a dinky remote which is largely unnecessary as it does a great job of switching to what you are using (turn on the BluRay and it switches to that, load something onto chromecast and it switches to that, set the compy to display through HDMI and it pops up).
Cons: It would be nice if it came with more ports, but if you only need 3, this is the thing.

It sets up its own wifi connection automatically, so there's nothing to configure. The most difficult part was getting the plastic protector off the batteries and getting them into the remote (just kidding)
I purchased this to drive two monitors (65"/32") in the front and back of the main room at our local makelab. I have a ChromeCast, an Apple TV, input from our data rack's KVM (VGA->HDMI adapter also from Newegg) and an extra HDMI cable attached for laptops that can't connect to the ChromeCast or the Apple TV.
We're only going about 30', but the signal appears to be strong. I would suspect the advertised range of 200' is accurate.
The delay is minimal, only a few milliseconds, and it works great showing the same video on both displays or showing different input on each. We can even have audio turned up on both and the delay is barely noticeable.
I will probably get a few more receivers in the near future so that we can put monitors in the rest of the rooms.
Cons: My only slight complaint is that it sometimes takes five seconds or more to react to channel changes. It isn't "instant" when you change inputs.

Pros: Seems like a sturdy product, quality parts and connectors, look good.
Cons: didn't work out of the box. Tried re-reading manuals and went online looking for details or what I might be doing wrong, before considering the product failed. I am an experienced systems administrator, but still we all make mistakes so I researched. I even tried several work-arounds to get this working, with no luck.
I contacted support from the OEM and after one reply to check connections (or similar), I heard nothing again.
Sadly, this is too expensive a part to recommend "giving it a try". Startech does have some good products, but I think this may have simply been a DOA and it was Customer Support that really failed here.
Other Thoughts: Use a well-known OEM until this provider matures in customer support. There are other options, some perhaps a little more expensive, but post purchase care is worth it.
