1 out of 5 eggsPass this up...

Pros: Hook up 5 different HDMI devices to 1 HDMI input. Oh, and has remote.

Cons: Playing XBox 360 using this device, the picture would randomly go black, and of course, your guy would die in the process. My DVD player does auto HDMI detection. Most times it would not detect a HDMI cable was connected, so there would be sound but no picture. When it did detect a HDMI cable was connected, it would only last for about an hour, then loss of picture again. Device is useless, all channels have same defect. Verified the problem lied with device after bypassing device and connecting straight to TV, and with over a dozen different working HDMI cables.

Other Thoughts: I owned this device for over 2 years. Problems started after the warranty expired. Finally fed up with it, it is now in the trash. Recommend NOT buying.
Beware of faulty battery in remote as well. after 1 year the remote was damaged from a leaking battery. Replacing battery did not help

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: Switches between inputs with remote and sometimes automatically

Cons: Adds a weird white flicker to my xbox and computer. It seems to only happen at 1080p, but it is annoying enough that it makes the device useless.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy this. I am going to try to return it.

3 out of 5 eggsNeeds Better Quality

Pros: Nice looking, very easy to use and setup.

Cons: Produced a lot or random snow specs in the picture that all disappeared when the TV was connected directly. This affected every device.
My Computer would not reliable work with it in native resolution even though the device claimed to handle the higher resolutions.

Other Thoughts: I'm sending it back.
Newegg did a great job in filling my order and shipping it promptly.

2 out of 5 eggsNot true 1080p

Pros: Cheap for an HDMI switch and handles 1080i easily

Cons: Does not work with true 1080p signals

Other Thoughts: I have my computer set to 1920 by 1080 and the switch works fine. However, my blu-ray is set to 1080p and the swich does not process the signal. At 1080p, if I plug the blu-ray into the TV, the resolution is accepted and it passes the on screen tests. If I leave the blu-ray resolution at 1080p through the switc h, the TV says no signal. It worls if I back the resolution down to 1080i. I spent 30 minutes on the phone with Sony only to find the switch is not capable of the resolution they advertise.

3 out of 5 eggsQuality control issues?

Pros: Looks nice, like the rubbery coating on it.

Cons: The power input on the unit is broken.. only works when the cable is pushed down or otherwise fiddled with.

Other Thoughts: Also have a 25 ft HDMI cable on the output. This would NOT work. The cable works fine when hooked up directly to my PS3 but not when hooked up directly to my PC, so could just be a poor quality cable and not the switch itself (thought you'd think if it was a power/signal issue the powered switch should fix this.. but then maybe it's related to the issue above)

5 out of 5 eggsGets the Job done!

Pros: Plugged it up, hook all my hdmi connections to it, Does the Job with no problems or quality loss.

My PC, PS3, Xbox 360 are currently hooked to it and the output goes to me recently purchased Optoma HD66 3D-Ready Projector with use of the 3D-Vision Nvidia Kit.

All is a go, no Complaints here.

Cons: Just may take a moment when switching between components but its nothing that serious.

Other Thoughts: Decent price, capable of handling all 1080p if thats what ppl are worrying about.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth the $$

Pros: Doesn't feel cheap. Nice ability to change devices both on this unit and through remote. We have our Tivo, DVD Player, and PC hoooked up to it. Excellent quality and a fair price. I did my homework and it paid off. Nice touch too having one of the inputs on the front.

Cons: Not cheaper? (but then it might be MADE cheaper)

3 out of 5 eggsBetter than nothing

Pros: It lets me hook my ps3, xbox 360, satalite reciever, and computer up to my tv at once, and has a 5th plug still open.

Cons: the "atuo switch" doesn't always switch when you turn something on, when you turn something off it randomly picks one of the remaining devices to switch to. neither of these things really bother me, but when you manually switch sources it messes the signal up. sometimes it has a purple or green overlay, other times it goes to nothing but static. I've noticed this about half the time.
The remote doesn't work very well, sometimes it works fine, other times it take clicking it 10-15 times for it to work, not a huge deal since there is a button on the box itself to switch sources. note, i havn't changed the battery that came with it, so i could of just gotten a bad battery.
another minor thing was i recieved my unit a bit scratched up.

Other Thoughts: all and all the only thing that bothers me is the signal getting messed up, other wise its a pretty good product.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work

Pros: Power and yellow input lights work.

Cons: Could not get output to television. Input lights stayed yellow. Moving inputs in other locations only changed input lights to match input locations. Select pushbuttons on unit and remote changed nothing. Inputs directly to television worked. Rated one egg because I could not rate it zero.

Other Thoughts: Called BYTECC coustmer service, told they are in training for the week 01/04-01/08/2010 and not available. I have an older 1080i TV with one DVI input. It has a conversion cable (DVI to HDMI) going to a HD DVD player, and component cables to Direct TV. Wanted to connect these units and a Blue Ray player through the switch. This TV weights 250+ pounds, it is in a furiture group that sourounds it, I am 69 years old, this is a pain in the rear to go through moving the TV. again.
