Switch works well . . . for a while.

Cons: Doesn't last, even with moderate use. Not very durable.

Worked fine until a few weeks after the warrant expired!

Pros: Share one connection and split it into 3

Cons: Cheaply built

I bought this a couple years ago but never got around to reviewing it. I just ordered something from monoprice so I decided to stop by and give a little review. This item only worked for maybe the first 2 or 3 days and I was happy because I was splitting one connection into 3 different devices but then it just stopped working for no apparent reason. Lots of reviews on here said theirs never worked so I should have listened an not bought the item. Sine the review is a few years from the purchase date, I really hope they have improved the quality of it.

This worked well for a few hours, but after switching inputs about 10 times it no longer functions.

I truly apologize that this Toslink switch is no longer functioning. If you would like, I can assist you in setting up an RMA for replacement if still within warranty. We cover this unit with a one year warranty and obtaining the replacement would be of no additional cost to you. If you wish to proceed, please provide the order number and I can get that going right away. Truly sorry again for any inconvenience and I hope this helps.

Just Received, Tested all 3 lins

Pros: I have 3x devices. Telus TV, LG 42" HD TV (LED), PS3 (newer edition, 320gb drive).
Tested all 3 lines with standard 3ft optical cable line in, with a 12ft out (amp not in same location as devices). Switches audio lines within a second of each other with the toggle switch of push nob into itself horizontally, and turn. This terminates current connection and allows movement to new connection. This Functions efficiently.

Cons: Could have been more productively oriented, easier to "hide" with perhaps a push button powered switch, to alternate device lines. This would make it more functional and efficient to hide excess cables.

Overall. see Pro/Con for more info.

Didn't work

Pros: Practical to hook up up multiple toslink Equipment to one audio system

Cons: Doesn't work

Unfortunately the one I received didn't work and for 6$ it's not worth paying for shipping and sending back.

Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the issues experienced with PID 2946. If I may ask, what issues did you run into exactly when trying to use this switch? Was there any audio output at all? Were all inputs tried? Also, what devices were connected in the setup? Please let me know so we can look into this matter further. Thank you in advance!
