5 out of 5 eggsMORE HDMI

Pros: Great little box! I have my computer hooked up thru my 660Ti (for movies), 360, and PS3 all hooked into it.
-Cheap (price)
-Easy to use (plug and play)
-Automatically switches to whichever HDMI is being used

Cons: The blue light is a little bright if you mount it work, or don't mount it at all....lazy on my part

Other Thoughts: Very happy with this purchase! No more switching between multiple inputs on my TV, and when I want to watch a movie or YouTube video, I can play the video AND audio on my TV.

With how affordable this unit is and how easy it is to use, idk why anyone won't buy it!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Does exactly what it should at a great price. This is my second purchase after using the first with PS3/Cable Box/Chromecast and an old Sony Wega without issue. I got this one for PC (Radeon 4780)/Chromecast on an ASUS 1080p monitor.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsIf you need it, get it.

Pros: Auto-Switches
Simple design
Small

Cons: It is light weight which can be a pro but it does not stay put. It comes with some 2 sided foam tape but I don't like to uses that stuff on my gear or furniture.

Other Thoughts: This is a wonderful device that works well. Not much more to say than that. If you need one get it.

2 out of 5 eggsIt works with additional purchase

Pros: With a AC adapter, this product does work. Can only switch to a different HDMI channel if the input device device is turned on. The device automatically switches to the first input device that was turned on which is sort of convenient if you don't have all three inputs on.

Cons: Does not include an adapter. Although the box does say, "No power needed for standard product", this is not true. Had to purchase a 5V AC adapter with a 3.0mm O.D/1.1mm I.D. head. Other sized heads might fit more securely, but that was the only one Radio Shack could get to fit.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to pick up an AC adapter prior to using the device. Almost returned it as a DOA product.

1 out of 5 eggsDosn't Work!

Pros: None

Cons: NO Picture, No Sound, on any of the three HDMI channels. Gave to my son who got a new Samsung TV for Christmas, needed this to add all his HDMI devices, and it didn't work at all right out of the box. The light indicating which HDMI port is active worked and could be switched, but no matter which port it was on no picture or sound. When devices were plugged directly into the TV it worked fine.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with PS3, Xbox One

Pros: Works well with PS3 and Xbox One. Intelligent Auto switches when it senses systems turned on and off. Remote is cool, you can hide the ball of cables behind a TV, desk, or monitor and use the remote although it auto switches 99.9% of the time so I haven't had to use it much other than just messing around.

Cons: Need power adapter (not included) for PS4 to work alone with this device, (although PS4 will work fine when using with PS3 or Xbox One as another device. There are work arounds, see my other thoughts for details.)

Other Thoughts: I have 2- PS3's, 2- PS4's, an Xbox one, 2- Monitors, many HDMI cables of varying speeds 3.0 or higher. I bought 2 of these switch boxes for 2 gaming areas in my house.

First off I love this switch, the remote works without using a power supply adapter. After testing every mathematical combo of cords, 2 of these switches, console systems, cables, and monitors I thought I should share my results so you know what your getting here.

If you plan to use this for Xbox One and PS3 it will work great, both supply enough power thru its HDMI cable to allow this device to work. However, if you plan to use this for a PS4 you will find the PS4's system does not supply enough power through the HDMI cable for this device to work alone and you will need to buy a separate 5 volt adapter for this to work (maybe PS4 is trying to be energy efficient, who knows). There are other options because the Xbox One does supply enough power even while powered off to allow your PS4 to run fine with this adapter. By default the PS3 does NOT supply power thru its HDMI cable when turned off to allow your PS4 to work, but when you turn on your PS3 on, your PS4 will work with this device.

** there is one more solution, go in your PS3 to settings, system settings, Control For HDMI turn this option to "ON" which will allow power from your PS3 to the Masscool switch which will now allow your PS4 to work even while your PS3 is turned off.

Again I have tried 2 of these with every combo possible and found the results the same each time, even when turning off and on the devices in any sequential order.

Sorry I am unable to test with Xbox 360 because I didn't have one available to test.

5 egg rating because its not Masscools fault that PS4 was built to not supply enough power through its HDMI cable at the time this device was made.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent and nice!

Pros: Small, light, simple, and works great!

Cons: None really. This switch feels very cheap and the IR adapter looks cheap too, so I'd probably NOT drop it.

Other Thoughts: Works perfectly. I use it with my PC, PS3, and 27" Acer monitor. I use HDMI from the PC and PS3 to the switch and then a HDMI to DVI cable from the switch to monitor and have no problems. The remote works great too, I just have to point the remote in the general direction of the IR adapter and it changes fine.

Pros: works like it should until I tried with DirecTV genie

Cons: I recently got direcTV genie. it won't show any picture for it unless I turn on my blu ray player. so it looks like it needs power plug with it.
