3x1 Enhanced HDMI® Switch with Built-In Equalizer & Remote Control
Enjoy the easy switching life with the Monoprice 3x1 Enhanced HDMI® Switch!
This switch allows you to connect three HDMI inputs and direct them to a single HDMI output. It fully conforms to the the HDCP and includes support for all 3D formats.
Two of the inputs are in the traditional location on the back, while the third is on the front panel. This allows you to easily make temporary connections, such as from a phone or tablet, without having to reach behind and locate the plug by feel.
The switch includes a remote control, with an on/off button, three direct access buttons, and a pair of directional buttons to cycle between available inputs. Whenever a device is turned off, the unit automatically switches to the next device in the chain, the same as if you had pressed the "next" button on the remote or pressed the "Touch switch" on the front panel.
The switch also incorporates an amplifier, which automatically regenerates the HDMI signal to full strength, allowing you to use longer-than-normal HDMI cables from the input devices. An external 5VDC power supply is required and supplied with the unit.
Note: Monoprice strongly recommends the use of minimum 24 AWG HDMI cables when connecting a device, such as this switch, between the source and destination devices to ensure minimal signal loss and maximum High Speed signal reliability.

Our knowledgeable Technical Support staff would be more than happy to assist. Thank you
The reason I needed them is because despite having multiple HDMI inputs on the TV's, I have the TV's hooked up to the receivers via in-wall cabling (conduit), and have room to only pass a single HDMI cable to the TV. Perfect application for the switch.
Be aware that one of the inputs is on the front of the box. This would work well to hook up a computer that has HDMI output.
PROS: Two inputs, the output and the power cable all come out the back. The box is very small, about the size of my Apple TV2 box (just a little bigger) Price, service and shipping from Monoprice is great as usual. Remote is small and works fine, also Logitech Harmony compatiable!
CONS: The Blue LED's on the front are WAY to bright. I put a piece of black duct tape over them, and that dimmed them down about 90%, but you can still see them! The brightness level is just fine with the tape over them. Without it, they are like a Blue LED flashlight!!!!!
PROS: Easy to use.
CONS: You should inform buyers that a AWG 24 HDMI cable is required!
And would recommend anyone
PROS: The switch works flawlessly. there is a remote to switch from one input to another, but what's even better is the priority input feature it has. If only one of the devices plugged into the switch is on, then the switch will automatically set to that input. If more than one input device is on, priority is given to the lowest numbered input (of 1, 2, and 3). The way I use my set-up, I don't even have to worry about switching to the correct input everything is done for me.
Otherwise, this product works very well and I have no other complaints.
PROS: Box comes with necessary equipment (AC adapter, remote, etc).
Switch works really well
Solid build quality
CONS: Auto switching doesn't seem to work
LEDs on the face are extremely bright
HDMI input 1 is awkwardly on the face
PROS: Nice metal design, felt substantial
CONS: Does not work with HBO and DirectTV which requires that it pass a HDCP signal
PROS: Works like a champ, good clear picture. Great price!
CONS: Unit is a little small and I wish all of the ports were on the back (one of the outputs is on the front).
PROS: Automatic switching
CONS: LED's are way way way too bright
PROS: Works out of the box just the way they said it would. What more can you say about it. No more going on the floor to change wires.
CONS: The on light is a little too bright but not a problem
HIGHLY recommend....great price, quick delivery.
PROS: Works great
CONS: LED's very bright
