Pros: It will split the signal.
If you prefer your displays black tones to look gray then this could be the product for you.
Its cheap so if you need a dirty hack to share a screen with someone and contrast is not critical, it will work.
Cons: It splits but does not amplify. PC displays are washed out. Did not try on TV. There is a power port but zero indication of Voltage required. (See Below)
Overall Review: I opened it up to look inside and there is a Micro USB connector. I plugged it in thinking maybe the voltage supplied would power a signal booster. It did not. The screens still washed out. PC recognized it as and ITE Device 8595. I did measure the voltage across the power plug while plugged in to the USB, it measured 5vdc. So a 5v supply might power it but will there be any signal boost? This purchase was a cheap gamble that did not pay off.
I would NOT recommend.
Pros: As the title says.
Cons: non yet
Overall Review: Recommend.
Pros: Purchased 10/21/2012
Using in home along side one other switch (EDIMAX GS-1026), both under one router running DD-WRT.
Cons: No perceived problems.
Pros: Purchased 10/16/2012
Using in the home as one of 2 switches. The other switch was bought on Newegg (TP-LINK TL-SG1024D). Using both with a router running DD-WRT.
Cons: No perceived issues.
Pros: Purchased 12/25/2012
Motherboards usually have 2 USB 2.0 headers to support 4 ports and 1 USB 3.0 header for 2 ports. Cases usually have 2 USB 2.0 ports on the front which takes only one header. If you want to maximize use of the USB headers on the motherboard the second and third headers have to go to a slot adapter on the back of the case. There are already plenty of USB ports on the back of the case. We need them on the front.
This SEDNA unit does the job. My case now has 4 USB 2.0 slots and 2 USB 3.0 slots all on the front.
Cons: None Yet.
Overall Review: For me, it shipped from China but arrived before some items that were shipped in the US.
