Nil point. Zero stars. One to avoid.
on 3 March 2012
Let me remind you this is a review of the product, NOT the seller. I have, so far, no problems with "gamesalor".
These splitters are lightweight, hollow, cheaply manufactured pieces of plastic crud. Give them a gently flick or tap, and you can feel the interior gubbins shaking around. They are extremely flimsy and feel like the smallest amount of pressure on the male end will result in them breaking.
The gold plated contacts are remarkably thin and do not make good contact with the female sockets into which they are inserted.
I was intending to use these to help vertically bi-amp an audio setup. Immediately it became clear there was a issue with these splitters: the output from one was considerably lower than the other. So I checked all the connections - all was fine. Nevertheless, I reinserted cables just to be certain that nothing was loose, but on the next test, there was nothing but an extremely loud buzz from one speaker.
Upon further investigation, it was apparent that within two minutes of use, these splitters had broken. There is a serious grounding problem with them. There merest amount of stress, and the internals become fuggered and produce nothing but noise.
Shouldn't complain - you get what you pay for. And a 50p a pop I shouldn't be surprised. But that doesn't stop me being disappointed.
My advice - avoid these splitters and save yourself the frustration.
