3X1 Mini HDMI® Switch
When all you need is a simple HDMI® switch to connect a couple of HDMI sources to a single HDMI display device, you don't need to spend a lot of money or hassle with a big device or power adapters. Just get this nifty 3x1 Mini HDMI Switch and save some money and some hassles!
Note that this switch has standard HDMI Connectors. The "mini" in the title and description refer to the size of the switch, not the type of connectors it uses.
There isn't much to say about this great little device, except that it does exactly what you'd expect! It has three HDMI inputs and a single HDMI output. It will automatically switch to whichever input is receiving power and has a button to switch between active inputs.
No external power is required, or even options. Just plug it into the HDMI® cables and start using it right away!

I used it to connect a Xbox, a Camcorder, and a WD HDTV box, so far I am very happy with it.
PROS: Work as described. Automatically toggles among 3 input sources. Compact design.
CONS: Can think of any.
Would be better if audio didn't drop when devices were powered off and on again.
Would be better if HDMI ports were on the BACK side of the switch, rather than on the outer edge, requiring the purchase of additional HDMI right angle adaptors to prevent cable sprawl.
PROS: 3 into 1 switch, small footprint. Easy 1 button operation.
CONS: Automatic switching does not occur.
Sound periodically dropped when hdmi source powers up.
Star-fish configuration requires use of right-angle hdmi adapters to get the cables to run behind the device.
PROS: Works as advertised.
CONS: So small the cables can shift it, but small is what I ordered.
I like the auto discovery capability while also allowing me to manually select the device I want to use.
This is a screaming deal for the price.
Has light to identify that a signal has been discovered
Automatically switches to "live" device while also having the capability to switch between devices manually
CONS: This really isn't much of a con but when working with multiple devices that are all sending signals - it will automatically switch to the most current device that comes on-line
If I leave the red LED on the device I want to be the default/fallback, I can then power up something else on another input and the switch will grab from that input. If I power down that same device it will fall back to my default device again. In my situation I have the light set to input 1 with the cable box connected to it. The blu-ray player is on input 2. I leave the cable on most of the time and only power up the BD player when I need it. For this it functions perfectly.
CONS: No directions!
PROS: Small size, secure ports, auto switching, cheap
CONS: Power light is extremely bright
PROS: Works well
CONS: Not sure if automatic switching works. No documentation to troubleshoot so no way to know what's going on.
PROS: Works great with everything but my Chromecast
CONS: No Remote and doesnt work with a Chromecast
I would still buy one again, because it's just a minor inconvenience.
PROS: Allows multiple HDMI devices to connect through one port
CONS: Doesn't always switch properly
PROS: Works flawlessly compact size, inexpensive
CONS: Voltage-only automatic switching
