    It works but the lights are WAY too bright

    • A customer in MI,

    Pros: Works as advertised
    Like the central audio output with several options

    Cons: Power on light way too bright

    It works as advertised but the power on light is WAY too bright. I finally had to put a bit of electrical tape over it.

    Good for Video, not for Audio

    • Al M.,
    •  Henderson, NV

    Pros: Excellent for switching video components.

    Cons: Not compatible with all sound outputs

    Video quality on al 4 of my video components is excellent. Switching is efficient and reliable. However, I had sound in one component (Roku) for 24 hrs. I had 1 channel only of sound on AppleTV for 24 hrs. I had no sound ever on satellite TV or on my BluRay player.Now there is no sound whatsoever. I'm not sure if the product is defective or not compatible.

    Thank you for your review and I am truly sorry for the inconvenience you've encountered with this item. Have you tried outputting a different set of audio through the switch? Does it still occur? Please let me know so I can assist you properly. Thank you!

    Nice Small Device

    • Anonymous,
    •  Huntly, VA

    Pros: Small footprint
    Easy Setup
    Simple design

    Cons: Bright LEDs

    I decided on this one for my Samsung TV to use to connect a newly purchased soundbar as my TV didn't have any audio outputs. The box works great. It was easy to install and has been working fine for about a month now. I like that there is a port on the front which makes it easy to connect a temporary device. What I don't like are that the LEDs are very bright and the small delay when changing input sources. Both of these are very minor issues.

    Great build quality and best of all, it works!

    • Totally Tubualr,

    Pros: Works as advertised.
    Very high build quality.

    Cons: Power LED is eye-piercingly bright. I used a thumbtack to make a pinhole in a little gaffer's tape and taped it over the power LED so it doesn't light up my whole house. Jeez.

    I've purchased lots of adapters that say they split Toslink signals, or HDMI signals and none of them worked. This one, however, works perfectly. It's a solid brick of a switcher, with metal used in the construction.

    Solved a Big Problem For Me

    • Anonymous,
    •  Melbourne, FL

    Pros: Easy setup, worked with no hassle at all.

    Cons: None

    The short story is that the box does exactly what it says it will, with no hassle, no problems.

    The problem was my LG LED TV with a remote wireless box that does HDMI inputs. The box was dying and wouldn't turn on, unless we turned it off and on again - 10 or 15 times! We used the box just to choose between two inputs: a DVR and a Roku box. This 4x1 switch worked perfectly as soon as we set it up. It strips the HDMI off the two inputs and routes it over the fiber optic cable to the Surround Sound bar. With other things we tried, we lost audio on the Roku box. Now everything works, and we gained the benefit of not caring if the wireless box dies.
