4 out of 5 eggsPretty useful

Pros: This little switch lets you expand your TVs HDMI inputs for those of us using TVs from before the days where they loaded them up with a half dozen HDMI ports. It does a great job with no signal loss or quality issues of any kind.

Cons: The "automatic" switching doesn't do well with Satellite TV, since there's occasionally some static on the signal, which is always on, so the little switch thinks it's still an active video feed which should be displayed, even when the Satellite is "off".

The remote also is pretty limited in range, but it does always work after a couple tries, once you get the receiver in the right place.

Other Thoughts: The automatic switch was a good idea, but it just doesn't quite work right. I've also noticed that it will occasionally switch over to the wrong device IF you use ports 1 and 2 or ports 2 and 3, but if you use 1 and 3 only, it has no such issues and everything functions excellently.

5 out of 5 eggsReally useful device

Pros: I have been using this device and have really enjoyed how easy it is to switch inputs now. My TV only has 2 HDMI inputs, but I needed to use 3, so this switch works out great for me.

The auto-switching feature works surprisingly well, I was amazed at how well it works despite the product being at such a low price. For example, if you have 1-2 input devices turned on already, when you turn on the third it will still detect it and switch to it automatically.

The included IR receiver and remote work very well. I expected to have to be pointing directly at the IR receiver, but that is not the case. There's a lot of leeway, so I rarely ever have to move around my hand to get the signal to transfer. It even comes with a double sided sticky pad so you can mount the IR receiver anywhere you want. When pressing a button on the remote there is no delay, and it switches the input immediately.

This switch does all this, and doesn't even need an external power source. When I first saw that a power adapter wasn't included I was slightly confused. But after using it, I can't see why you'd need one.

Cons: There is only one slight nitpick that I have. The IR receiver cord is a little on the short side. I had to end up moving the receiver, but that's not a huge deal for me. Definitely

Other Thoughts: Don't let the price fool you, this HDMI switch is a quality product that has made my life a lot easier.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Switch

Pros: Provides excellent signal pass through. No degradation detected. Works as described with the included remote to switch channels or you can use a button on top of the switch. Selected channel lights up a blue LED. Power is provided by the HDMI connections - no external power needed. Unit was on sale so I got an amazing deal from New Egg!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The switch is very small and can be hidden behind your TV since the small infrared receiver has a long thin cable attached to the actual switch. You need a good line of sight to the infrared receiver for your remote. I haven't used the auto switching function since my Roku unit is always in standby, but manual switching with the remote is fine with no jumping between attached sending units during use.

4 out of 5 eggsFunctional, interesting, one caveat

Pros: This splitter does a decent job at expanding your TV to allow multiple HDMI inputs. The remote's three button design is simple, the device takes no extra power, and the IR receiver is unobtrusive, with a fairly decent range. The system seems to be a direct pass-through with no modifications to the signals.

Cons: The "automatic switch" setting can't be disabled, and is very sensitive to fluctuations or static or even the occasional audio "pop". If you're on Satellite like I am, this can be a problem.

Other Thoughts: The only way to get around the autoswitch issue is to only use inputs 1 and 3, so the automatic switch has nothing to work with (if you'll notice it says it only switches between two inputs automatically), meaning if you use all three ports regularly, you're out of luck when it comes to interference somewhere on the connection.
I was hoping this switch would clear up a problem I've had with my TV where it only plays audio out of its own speakers on HD channels when I'm changing the volume, but it doesn't. However, HD signals from other sources like a computer or a disc player have audio completely normally. Guess that's a direct passthrough for you!
