I have read all the negative reviews about this item, but I cannot fault it. I wanted a scart splitter for the TV in the bedroom that only had one scart input. I wanted to run a DVD player and a freeview recorder. This splitter does the job well. It was very easy to set up, I just plugged everything in and away it went. The picture and sound quality on both the DVD player and the freeview recorder are excellent. I really cannot understand why this splitter has received such bad reviews. The only thing that was unexpected was the fact that I thought I was receiving a 2way spltter, where in actual fact I received a 3way splitter! So I see that as a bonus! As far as I am concerned, you can buy with confidence. The delivery was very fast too!!!
