4x2 Matrix HDMI® Powered Mini Switch w/ Remote
If you're like most people, you have your home theater setup in one room, but have TVs in other rooms as well. This gives everyone in the house the ability to watch what they want, when they want. But what if the kids want to watch a DVD while you want to watch the big game in the living room with your friends? You can lug the DVD player to the other room for the kids, but a better solution is to use an this 4x2 HDMI® Mini Matrix Switch from Monoprice!
With this switch you don't need to move equipment from room-to-room, nor do you have to buy duplicate equipment for the other room. This matrix provides 4 HDMI inputs, which allows you to connect the Xbox 360®, cable box, blu-ray player, and the output from your Android phone. Any of these four inputs can be independently selected for either of the two outputs. Both displays can select the same or different inputs.
The switch includes a remote control, allowing direct selection of any of the inputs for each of the two outputs. It has a built-in equalizer to compensate for weak HDMI signals and supports the full High Speed 1080p@60Hz HDMI video resolution. It is powered by an included 5 VDC, 2A AC adapter. The four input and two output HDMI ports are gold plated to ensure smooth, corrosion-free connections.
This matrix measures only 4.5" x 2.4" x 1.3" (115 x 60 x 32 mm). A spare/replacement remote is available as PID 12383.
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.

PROS: Works well with my Blu Ray player and Play Station.
CONS: Does not work with Comcast cable boxes, but after trying another type of box and doing some research, it seems Comcast boxes are not compatible with any HDMI switches.
2 of the HDMI cables plug in on the sides. Awkward and unsightly if you're trying to create a nice A/V set up.
As usual, Monoprice has brought to market a product that works as well as any comparable product, but at quite a bit lower price!
PROS: Small, easy to set up. Great quality, fast switching. Low cost!
I needed to feed two outputs (TV and receiver) to watch my Dune player with or without surround. This works well. Passes HDMI handshake between devices with no problems.
I am going to cannibalize an older power supply and USB to feed this with USB power from the Dune, so this isn't on all the time.
PROS: Does what I needed, input can feed two outputs
CONS: LEDs are BRIGHT!
May have to return it. Any thoughts?
PROS: Works great - see my review
PROS: exactly what I needed at just the right price
CONS: as people have mentioned it can be a tad finicky when first hooking up inputs/outputs but after a few switches it seems to work fine for me and the delay between switching has been ~1-3 literal seconds which for me personally is fine. Nice and tiny too.
PROS: Product works great.
CONS: Lights are too bright. Remote has to be in direct sight. Have to select twice before switches.
I would recommend to a friend.
PROS: Easy to use, switches between inputs quickly, small and compact.
CONS: The lights are to bright.
PROS: Compact lights indicate which device you are using
CONS: Remote only works for short distance( 6 ft or less) output will not work on a long HDMI cable
