It does exactly what I needed it to do, replacing my previous 2 way splitter.
J. Hansen
Overall, this splitter worked almost as well as a much more expensive one, and the "almost" part was so small that it did not make a difference.
Wayne
I am using the splitter with a Hauppauge 1600 card to split my cable signal to analog and digital as well as connect to the TV.

In order to evaluate splitters, it is important to understand how they work. A splitter is not an amplifier. It takes a signal and divides it, so the sum of all the outputs must be less than 100% of the original signal strength, assuming even the slightest bit of signal loss. The goal is to have as little signal loss as possible.

Splitting a signal is like splitting a bowl of cake batter. If you split it in two, each new bowl would have 50% of the original, but some of it sticks to the original bowl, and some sticks to the mixing blades or spatulas. You might get 48% in each bowl, but if you were hoping for 76%, it's impossible. If you split one of the two new bowls, you will get two more with less than 25% each. A "78% batter loss" in one of the new bowls would be reasonable and is 88% of the maximum that is theoretically possible. (22 out of 25) Those who claim to be getting an 80% signal loss with splitters are in reality getting 80% of the theoretical maximum, and getting only a 20% loss, if the signal had been split twice. If they needed to add a new cable to use the splitter, it could also be part of the signal loss.

Some reviewers got a stronger signal from the port closest to the input. That means that internally, the signal is split once, half going to port one, and split again for the next two. A 7 db drop would be in the expected range for the second and third. My testing confirmed that the first port had a signal strength in the expected range for a two way split. The other two ports can do nothing more than divide what is left.

My setup consisted of an attic antenna with a two way Monster Cable splitter. It had very low signal loss.

This is an excellent splitter, the picture quality actually is better now that I replaced Comcast's splitter with this one, and the Comcast one was just a two way splitter!!!

Don't let the cheap price fool you. Works great with with HD-cable and I get great cable modem speed(Over 17 megabytes on cable that is supposedly capped off at 15 megabytes).

I am using the splitter with a Hauppauge 1600 card to split my cable signal to analog and digital as well as connect to the TV. It works without a problems and I have not noticed any reduction of the signal.

I saw several splitters here at Amazon. I was really apprehensive about getting this splitter because it was so inexpensive. I saw brand name splitter for over $20 and quality is often synonymous price, but I figured... what the heck it's only $2 it won't break me!
This splitter worked excellent! I have an OTA digital antenna and three televisions in the Los Angeles area (50-miles from most of the TV broadcast antennas). My house is behind a hill and I never got very good reception when I had an analog antenna hooked to just one television. I figured that splitting the digital signal would just kill the signal to all of the televisions. Boy was I wrong! All of the televisions get excellent reception with plenty of signal strength and they never drop off of get pixilation.
If you need a 3-way splitter get this one you will not be sorry and you will even save a few dollars in the process.

Great price for a splitter, but when I used an unpowered antenna as the source the signal was too weak to split 3 ways. I have had to use it as a 2 way splitter, and that seems to work OK.

I needed a three way splitter for my cable and so I thought I would stop at Radio Shack and pick one up on my way home from work. They had such splitters in stock but their prices ranged from $14.00 to $20.00. Amazon's price of less than $2.00 is the best that I have seen and once I connected it to my cable I can't perceive any difference in picture quality.

Works great. Used it to split my cable into two different items (two different TiVo's), one displaying HD. The output was fantastic, it works great. Highly recommended. (This had better output than the tap that the Comcast tech gave me.)
