Works great, just two small problems:
Reviewed in the United States on March 22, 2018
I have 3 consoles (Switch, Xbox One, PS4) and a gaming PC, and my Cable box, all requiring HDMI ports, but only 3 ports on my TV. The solution was to buy this thing here, which I figured I'd put my 3 gaming consoles on and it would automatically detect and switch over to whichever one was turned on. So far, after a week of (admittedly heavy) use, it seems to be working wonderfully. No matter what system I have on, it goes right to it. The ONLY problem? There's 2: First of all, I do notice some image degradation. The picture is a little fuzzier when played through this than it is straight through the HDMI cord to my TV. I've taken the switch box out to test it and it's true. There's some picture static that is barely noticeable but there if you sit close enough (say, 5 feet away from the TV) Secondly, don't turn another console on while one is already running. It seems to send this thing into a catatonic fit and I had to unplug it and replug it several times before it started detecting any of my game systems again. Be careful.
Other than that, it's a good buy. I intend to get a 2nd TV for my game room which will solve this problem, but until I do, this will serve me just fine.
