5Best choice, very cost affective, it just works
By Don't You Wish
I picked this up to help with an older TV that can't switch inputs. I figured for the price, why not? The mailing packaging was really subpar but once I saw the product packaging I saw why. It was pretty secure and sturdy and was easy to pop out and put in to use. This switch comes with a remote, IR sensor, power adapter and remote.

Setup was easy and straight forward. I was able to connect three units via HDMI to my Vizio TV making it easy to switch between them all. I tested out the switcher manually with just a switch and it was able to go back-and-forth with no issues. It seems to have an auto sense feature which only switches to the port in which there is something on and connected. If you don't have anything else connected and powered on it will not switch to another port. The one thing I noticed is that the box gets pretty hot after a couple hours of use. I have yet to test the switcher with the remote but that will be the next step and I will update my review once I've done so.

All be it for the price you cannot go wrong. At this price point I have no problem replacing the switcher if it fails on me in half a year or a year. Hence why I gave it five stars rather than three or four considering that the price is nowhere near what any other device similar as this one would cost. Great addition to the family and I am looking to buy a second one.

5Combine with an audio extractor for ultimate setup
By Trustmeiknow
I tried a much more expensive switch first but it didn't handle well, it would actually adjust my picture sizing. I returned and purchased this one with no such problems. The IR extender allows me to put this in reach of my Harmony Hub. This was the perfect addition to my trusty old receiver that I refuse to upgrade just to get HDMI switches. As for Audio to the old receiver? I use an audio extractor such as the Blackbird 4K Series 7.1 HDMI Audio Extractor.

4Almost Exactly What I Wanted
By Jordan Crackers
This is a very good fix when you need extra HDMI ports for your TV. It's is an "smart" switcher, but it's not perfectly smart. Here's my setup: I plugged in all my game systems into it. I have a Wii U, PS3, and PS4.

So the way it's supposed to work is, whatever device you turn on, the one with the highest priority should display on the TV. The priority is set by the HDMI ports 1-5 (1 being highest priority). But it doesn't exactly work that way, and I believe it's the device, not the switcher to blame.

What I mean is, no matter what port the Wii U is in, it gets first priority. Also, if the PS3 is in port 1, it won't override the Wii U or the PS4. I systematically worked each scenario to find why this was happening and... Like I said... I've come to the conclusion that the device is supposed to tell the switcher when it's on or off, but it doesn't exactly work.

Now if no other devices are on, it works just fine when you turn on any device. So my advice is to turn off all other devices before turning on another.

Also, since it comes with an IR and remote, you can always manually override which system is on. So it's like a backup when the switcher doesn't display the device you want. So, for ease's sake, I put the PS3 on port 3 and the PS4 on port 4. Most of the time I never notice it's flaws, and it works just fine.
