Well made complete kit that Just Works - good value at £13,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 5 in 1 out 5 Port HDMI IR Remote Control 5 Way Switch Splitter Box Switcher 3D 1080P FOR PS3 / Xbox 360 (slim) / Sky HD / Freesat HD / Virgin + / Bluray player / DVD / HD Camcorder / HTPC / Laptop (Electronics)
Needed this because our new TV only has two HDMI sockets, and we needed to connect the Linux HTPC, an I-CAN HD set-top box, a Raspberry Pi, and my neighbours HTPC (that won't talk to its printer) needs some TLC and it needs HDMI for me to test it.
We also have Toshiba AC100 smartbooks with Linux installed and it's handy to be able to use a 32" screen sometimes.
So HDMI is very much the new SCART!
This 5-way HDMI switch is good quality, and comes with a decent-looking power supply, a remote IR sensor and a very neat remote control that works at a fair distance. It's about as small as it could be, considering the 6 sockets it needs to work.
It is also intelligent, in that if you connect an HDMI lead to another PC or STB, then power it up, the switch detects this and selects that input. Simples!
Pretty fair value at £13 post free. Recommended!
