Ok, first of all the item is not as bad as some of these reviewers have written. I went out of my way to get a second one as I have NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Xbox, Xbox360, and a PS2 with a PS3 in the pipe. Both work flawlessly.

Here's the skinny... it's a switchbox... not a processor. It's 20 bucks... not 120.

That said you will have about a 0.5% signal loss (about a dB in signal) going through the unit. Unless you have a really nice HD TV and know where every pixel on the screen is going to be and at what time... you're not going to notice the loss. It does work in HD. The guy who says it doesn't should try fiddling with his settings. If the console and TV aren't configured correctly it will look very bad. All the box is is a physical switcher... wire for wire... and a solid one at that. I dropped mine on a concrete floor while moving and it took it smiling. The lack of completeness on the nameplates for the front is the only packaging complaint of mine. Most people that will use these are hardcore enthusiasts that will likely still have some of the older systems. At any rate... it's worth the money. If you're worried about signal loss then you can go ahead and buy one of the state of the art combiners and signal regenerators that will give you the best possible picture on a single mixed-down set of outputs. If you can afford the TV that would make a noticeable difference in this then you can afford to not bargain bin on your cables and switches anyways. (gold plated connectors are just an excuse to charge you more.. gold is actually a worse conductor than copper is.. worse than the alloys they use on this stuff nowdays, even... it just doesn't corrode. If you take care of your stuff you won't have that problem anyways.

Before we picked up our Xbox 360, we were already maxed out on the input ports of our home theatre system. This device, though, helped us piggyback our 360 in with our Playstation 2 connection with no noticeable loss of quality. It has both component and composite inputs (great if you have multiple devices with more than one output type), as well as interchangeable labels for each input. It's all mechanical, so there's no power connection necessary.

The one way it could have been better would have been if it included optical audio ports, but I understand that is much more complex technology and requires more expensive components. Aside from that, though, it has worked absolutely perfectly for me!

I've owned a number of these pelican system selectors over the years, and they have been very reliable. I still have one in use today in fact, that I use for some of my older gaming consoles.

If I had to find some aspect of them that I was dissatisfied with, it would probably be the tiny plastic piece labels that come with the device, for the little windows on the front, so you can see which source is the active one. They are just really small and difficult to see clearly from even a short distance away.

As a simple remedy however (and to include devices that no suitable plastic label piece existed for) I simply took some masking tape and wrote on it with a sharpie pen, placed it below the input source's front window, and problem solved really.

One thing I really appreciate about the system selector is that it does not require any power to operate. Simple mechanical switching of your desired input source when the button is pressed.

If you can still find these things anymore, even a used one, and you have a bunch of older consoles or similar devices that you want to hook to your TV via component cable (up to 3 devices) , s-video or composite rca cables (up to 4 devices), you really can't go wrong with this.

I like this switch. it works well for connecting several inputs to my old CRT television. The inputs are labeled for specific consoles but I don't really use them in those ports. The main thing I don't like about this is there is no remote access. You have to actually get up and go change the input.

I've had this for a year and a half (I have my XBOX 360, PS2, Gamecube, and DVD player hooked up to it) and it works just fine! Don't belive the review that it doesn't work on HD (it's also hooked up to my HDTV with NO compromise of picture quality at all!) It's amazing that this works so well being the fact that the exterior of the unit is almost made entirely of plastic....the only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars.

it is a great device but from time to time it does not transmit the video and audio signals from my video game systems to my TV. it may only have these issues because i had to buy it used for one reason or another and as it is i think they stopped making these years ago.

The right price; does the right job. The slightest fault might be that the connections and bonus cables are not gold plated, but this wasn't used on higher end equipment so there was no noticeable visual or audio degradation. I needed an inexpensive video selector that works with component connections and this was just what I needed. The bonus cables made it a great value too.
