Pros: -Works as shown
-Simple to use (Button press to flip between channels)
-Red light indicator to show which port is active
-Somewhat small, not too bulky. (Size of a typical hand; palm to joint)
Cons: -2 out of the 3 HDMI ports doesnt work, or it doesnt work when there are already two other ports active? Not sure.
-Doesnt come with a HDMI cable so you will need to get one separate to actually use this.
-Feels a little cheap, Not really a problem though.
-I feel like i should note that the picture quality degrades just in the slightest through this. It's maybe a 4% difference but it seems a little more edgy.
Other Thoughts: It would have been nice if it came with even a 1ft HDMI cable to get me started with this. I ended up buying this and then waiting to get it and finding out that i still needed another HDMI cable just to get it to connect to my tv. Once i got an HDMI cable from my tv, i could finally get my devices connected to the splitter. But thats when i found out that its not 100%. As in, i cant use all three because the third port seems buggy. It doesnt show picture or sound but it shows a dark grey something. Its alive?
-Doesnt come with its own power source. Not sure if it would really need one, as i dont understand for sure why power affects the connections other than i just know it does.
- -Overall, If you need to connect no more than two devices, you should have to worry. Otherwise, make sure this is what you want to trust.
This review is from: Coboc 3 ft. gold plated, High speed HDMI to HDMI A/V Cable (Black)
Pros: -Didnt cost much and i feel like i got more than what i paid for, given things at this price don't usually last too long.
-The wire isn't too stiff, but nor is it flimsy so it doesn't give any problems with wire management.
-Bought two and they both worked.
Cons: 3ft? Got what i wanted.
No Cons Really.
Other Thoughts: ~Bought two and they both worked. Although one of the two went out on my friend but that was after a month or so. Just a headsup. Maybe buy a spare? Mine has lasted 4-5+months
~Would have been nice to find a longer wire for a close price, but we can't have everything. Overall, this was definitely worth the money and i would reccomend it to anyone looking to buy HDMI cables. Noone should be sucked into those "High Speed HD Connectivity" commercial gimmicks that common local stores try to sell. If the cable works, then thats it. If it doesn't, you will know. HD Cables are simple as that. (These aren't Ethernet cables)
~Dont spend more than 2$ Per foot of cord.
This review is from: GE 72598 Laser Lens Cleaner
Pros: +Comes in a jewel case for safe storing.
+The CD has things on it to play while you wait for it to clean your player.
+"Voice and Music guide in 6 different languages."
Cons: -Didn't fix my xbox problem
-Two small brushes on the bottem. They couldn't have had more?
-Simple packaging. Meaning, without the packing it came in, you dont have the instructions. So if your new to this sorta thing and dont touch things if you dont know what or how they work, This may just collect dust as they're no instructions on the Case OR the CD itself. (which i think is a little dumb being that it's not like it would take up much space to say "Place in DVD Player to commence cleaning" or something.
Other Thoughts: *I bought this for my xbox because it is having serious problems reading my perfectly fine disks and I was hoping this would solve the problem. Well after opening and closing the tray several times I finally got it to work. And by work I mean get it to play the media files on the disk as if it were a CD-R. (Is It?) After playing around with some if the 'songs' on the CD, I expected that since its reading the data, the disk MUST be spinning or something. So I took out the disk, put in Battlefield and to my surprise, The disk still wouldn't read. I still had to open and close it several times to get it to work, just like before. This goes on with several of my other disks so its not just this one.
*If your having similar problems, you can try to roll the dice and check this out, but I can only hope you have more luck than me.
*Also, in case your wondering how this has bristles on the bottom AND the disk still works, Its because they put the two bristles/brushes on one of both sides of the disk on the more outer parts of the disk where data written didn't reach. Which what i think means, that if the laser isn't led to that area, it wont get 'cleaned'. I'm not sure how true this may be being that i'm not a DVD player expert.
