Why did you buy this?
My son's TV had only one HDMI input and I've read too many horror stories about HDMI switches not working. I chose this one from Crutchfield because I trust their technological prowess and their reputation to stand behind what they sell. [ Stephen Jul 31, 2016 ]
I have only 1 HDMI input on my TV. This product will give me more HDMI inputs for my TV. [ Keith Barringto Jul 30, 2016 ]
Appears simple to use, price point. [ Michael Jan 03, 2016 ]
1 question already asked
Frankly, I only bought this as a bridge of using new Tech with a old TV. I think it would degrade the quality of newer 4K etc [ LESLEY Oct 04, 2018 ]
It's just a switcher. If your devices have HDMI outputs, it should work with them. [ JAY N Oct 04, 2018 ]
