2X1 Manual HDMI® Switch - Push Button Type

It seems like everything uses HDMI® these days, from home theater equipment to your Android phone. With so many HDMI devices in use, most televisions quickly run out of available HDMI input ports. You don't want the hassle of plugging and unplugging cables whenever you want to watch or play something different and you don't want the expense of new TV. Just get this 2x1 Manual HDMI Switch from Monoprice!

This small footprint switch measures only 5.1" x 4.4" x 1.2". It has the two input and one output HDMI ports on the back, each of which is gold plated to ensure smooth, corrosion-free connections. The switch receives all the power it needs from the HDMI connections. It uses physical push-buttons on the front panel to switch between the two inputs, with an LED inside the switch to indicate the currently selected input.

Note: Monoprice strongly recommends using 22AWG, 24AWG, or active HDMI cables with Redmere technology to achieve the best results and to ensure minimum signal loss over longer distances.

Ecellent no-frills HDMI switch

Pros: Easy to setup and use. No power required.

Cons: Manual push button instead of automatic signal detection.

This is an excellent no-frills, manual HDMI switch (2 port). It works perfectly with my BluRay player and my 1080p HD TV.

Self-Powered and stupidly easy

Pros: No external power source needed
Does transmit audio (haven't confirmed more than 3 audio channels)
Simple and Easy Design
Rubberized Feet to keep it from sliding around
Tactile buttons that give audible click when pressed

Cons: Not mountable
Buttons feel cheap
The audible button click can be a con to some

First and foremost, this is a simple solution for someone looking to utilize one screen with 2 input devices. A nice crazy simple interface. 2 inputs, 2 buttons to select. Nothing else needed. The unit doesn't need external power or batteries, which was THE selling point for me.
I don't remember if instructions were included, but honestly if you need instructions to plug in 3 HDMI cables (2 inputs and 1 output), then you're a lost cause.

The 2 selector buttons do make audible clicks. The buttons are clear, but when selected, you see an orange plate under the button letting you known you've activated the specific input. The buttons do feel a bit on the cheap side.
I did test audio briefly, I got 3 channels to work. Did not test beyond that as this will only be used for presentation purposes computer or laptop to large television.

There was no way to mount the device, so if you plan on hiding this under a desk or table, you'll have to rig something up.

That aside, the price, the performance, the simplicity, 9/10.

Pros: Small, Easy to use

Works great and looks great. When you push in one of the two buttons the other button pops back out.

Pros: Easy to use
Feels like good quality (metal box and all)
Works perfectly.

Cons: It's only 1080i (not 1080p) but for the price, I bet your eyes wont see the difference )

I'm really happy with the product, I would recommend it.

Pros: The HDMI switch I purchased appears to be good quality-in a metal case, which may guard against a problem with a previous unitit was 'fried' somehow during a thunderstorm.

Cons: This switch is connected to a ROKU 3 streaming device, which I am told employs some sort of anti-piracy 'handshake' software. This ROKU device wants to know it is connected to a TV, and not some other recording device. Apparently the 2X1 Manual HDMI® Switch does not satisfy this software automatically, so the ROKU must be powered off and back on while 2X1 Manual HDMI® Switch is connected to the TV. We suspect part of the problem is that our TV is not a late model 'smart' TV.

The unit is well-made, with metal casing. For some reason it does not seem to work well with ROKU 3 anti-piracy software, which wants to 'handshake' with a TV. A previous HDMI switch we owned satisfied that criterion
