5 out of 5 eggsUpdate to: C2G 28734 3-Way TOSLINK Digital Audio Selector Switch

Pros: I could not find a way to "update" my original review dated 02/08/2014, so I have added a second review.
I was getting sound drops on the original unit.
After working with C2G on this, they replaced the unit. The new unit is working perfectly. Not a skip or scratch to be found.

Cons: Foot Print is fairly large when cables are connected.
Nine foot total cable length is the max I recommend for this unit.

Other Thoughts: I do suggest that you keep the length of the cables to a total of 9ft. Do not try to use 2 6ft cables with this unit. If you need the distance use one 6ft and then the shortest possible for the rest of the connections. Though none of the information states this, one of the techs I spoke to recommended it, and after my own testing I agree.

2 out of 5 eggsC2G 28734 3-Way TOSLINK Digital Audio Selector Switch

Pros: It does what it is supposed to do. It let me connect multiple sound inputs to my home theater system from multiple sources. Easy to connect. Easy to use. I have had it hooked up for about 4 weeks now, and it is still working.

Cons: Due to the design, it takes up a foot print of about twice its size. I get cuts in the sound sometimes, and have to jiggle it and it works okay for awhile. I tried to connect using a 6ft cable for the OUT and a 6ft cable for the IN. It did not work. I then used a 3FT for the OUT and a 6FT for the IN and it worked, so I changed where it was located. (going to contact support on these two points).

Other Thoughts: I got this to try and improve the sound quality from my multiple devices until I replaced my TV, as my current one does not have the ability to send all audio out to one location. It is a cheap fix, until I am ready to spend a few thousand on the TV I want. I sell a lot of C2G parts and have very few issues with anything they sell. That said, I would not sell one of these to any of my customers.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected

Pros: Does what I need it to do. Can't say much beyond that.

Cons: Poor design didn't factor in the foot print after the cables are attached.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I like it. It works. Wouldn't drop it and expect it to work though. Didn't feel like testing that.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: A simple and cheap solution which works (usually - see below)

Cons: Cheap construction. Internal wire can become misaligned when moving from one switch position to another. This is what causes one or more of the ports to not work.

Other Thoughts: Okay so the construction of this thing IS cheap, but it only costs $20. There are other comparative solutions which are just as cheap, but they're vulnerable to the same problems this switch is. There are more reliable solutions available too, but they are much, much more expensive.
Smack the thing around, wiggle the switch a bit, or, if you're feeling adventurous, open the thing up and realign the connecting fabric inside.

1 out of 5 eggsJUNK!!!!

Pros: It LOOKS like it would have been perfect....

Cons: Only one port actually works but only 90% of the time. Its exactly 31 days old so I cant return it or replace it. One of the ports doesn't work at all and the other port is so "scratchy" you can not make out anything anyway.

1 out of 5 eggsStarting to stay away from Newegg...

Pros: No pros except I received the item in 2 days, which was good.

Cons: The item does not work at all. This is the fourth item I've gotten from Newegg that was either DOA or broke soon thereafter. I've tested this on three different sound systems, didn't work on any of them. So now I have to spend the money to ship it back, or contact the manufacturer for a refund. This is rediculous to the point that I'm starting to go elsewhere for my products, as they have a better rate of not being DOA.

Other Thoughts: Stay away from this product, and if this happens to you a lot like it does me, stay away from Newegg.
