BYTECC HMSP102 1 x 2 HDMI Splitter

2 out of 5 eggs Works Sometimes... 09/12/2014

This review is from: BYTECC HMSP102 1 x 2 HDMI Splitter

Pros: It works somewhat. when it does it's great but the rest of the time it seems like a waste of money.

Cons: The Pictures sometimes flicker and have to turn TV's and cable box off and on several times till it decides to work. Even if it is just 1 TV I still must fight with getting it to work. And the audio has lots of static to the 2nd TV I have to use a second set of speakers and get the audio from the RCA plugs on the cable box to get a clean audio signal and I have tried numerous HDMI Cables with no luck at all....

Other Thoughts: Really not happy with it I read some of the other reviews before I purchased this and others said it worked great with no problems but I have had nothing but problems....

SAMSUNG UD590 Series U28D590D Black 28

Pros: Extremely sharp picture, Great colors I have 2 older ASUS VS series Monitors at 1080P on each side and the difference is very noticeable.

Cons: I wish the stand was a little nicer with better adjustability but it is more than sufficient for a gamer sitting in front of it.

I had an Issue with the screen flickering and going black completely for just a second but it was very annoying and I was close to sending this monitor back but after some reading I found that it SLI/Crossfire were turned off it goes away evidently it is a driver issue not a monitor problem.
I uninstalled the Video drivers that I was running and installed the latest beta drivers and so far it has been rock solid with no flickers at all and I have crossfire turned on too.

Also everything from task bar to icons are all really small. I had to increase their size as high as possible (150%) and they are better but still smaller than on a 1080 screen. But some things that aren't affected by the adjustment like Steam or Origin windows are fairly small and if you are too far away could cause some people to have a hard time reading the little windows.

Other Thoughts: 4K is no joke if you want to run games like BF4 at Ultra preset settings your PC better have some horsepower!

SAMSUNG S32D850T Black 32
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 2560x1440 resolution and the stand is very nice and easily adjustable.

Cons: I think it is supposed to have speakers but no matter what I do I get no audio. I've tried HDMI audio & I plugged in my phone through the headphone input jack and still no audio... Overall not very happy considering the cost of the monitor. Probably will send it back and buy something else.

Other Thoughts: Overall it seems like a good monitor but not being able to get it to play audio is really annoying if I keep it I will have to pay for external speakers Not a good feeling on a $900 monitor I am very disappointed...
