    Does what it needs to
    It's ok, it does what it needs to, but the thing could really stand a second component or HDMI in. I mean really, how often do people use DVI on a home theatre? Most of this is for video games and media players with HDMI or Component, I suspect, and this only allows in of one each.

    PROS: Does what it needs to. Solid, good construction.

    CONS: Only one of each kind of input. Most of us have more than one source of a type.

    Quirky little thing.
    Useful if you need to take an HDMI input and split off digital audio, for example if your computer doesn't have a Toslink port but you want to send digital audio to an amplifier. also useful for component video devices with optical outputs (XBOX 360 or PS2, for example). Would not call this a 3X1 switch though. Maybe a 2X1 switch.

    PROS: Switches between HDMI and DVI and component video inputs flawlessly.
    Splits a digital audio signal from an HDMI signal

    CONS: Does not start converting analog audio until powered off and back on, or if an active optical audio input is plugged in and unplugged.
    Does not handle 1080p well, even with 24AWG cables. In high bitrate scenes (lots of motion on the screen) the signal drops out. 1080i is fine, though.
    DVI input had a strange green tint, however, I was able to compensate for this through the display driver settings on the computer.

    Response from Monoprice

    My apologies for the issues you had with the HDMI converter switch. I have forwarded this you onto our QC team for review and any necessary changes that need to be made to the product. If you don't mind me asking can you describe your setup for me, meaning the source devices you are using? If you are running deep color can you try turning it off on both sources and displays if supported and perhaps give this a try on your other review as well? Thank you for your cooperation and for being a valued customer of Monoprice.

    1080P input looks horrible
    Apparently this thing likes 1080i input, but fails miserably with 1080p input. So I give it 5 stars for having served my needs well when I was only using 1080i.

    PROS: 1080i input via component looks fine on 1080 p monitor.

    This has been my only use for the past few years, hooking it up to a PS3.

    CONS: Just recently tried to use the hdmi input with a 1080P source. (Video card on windows 8 box). The output looked awful on the same 1080p monitor used in the pros above.

    Then tried dvi input with a the same 1080p source video card. Same exact thing.

    Tried 1080p hdmi and dvi input from another computer. Same issue. The output is wavy and flickers.

    Straight plugin of all these sources resulted in beautiful output.

    HDMI converter does not do what iot is supposed to do.
    I will continue to look for a switching unit that will actually do what this unit claims it will do. In other words convert all component signals to HDMI.

    PROS: It does convert component to HDMI ONLY if the component signal is "progressive" or higher.

    CONS: If you have an older DVD or super VHS unit with standard component output, don't expect this unit to work. The unit also defaults to the HDMI to HDMI switch when power is shut off and turned on again when both the HDMI and component inputs are used. This causes confusion when outputing a signal from more than one source. Finally the instruction booklet is absolutely worthless as very little of the functions are covered. The remote is very weak. I have tested two units with the same result in every action mentioned above.

    Great solution for Wii HDMI
    I bought this to hook up a Wii to a receiver with HDMI inputs. Connected it up, and it worked flawlessly from the start.

    PROS: Cheap, works perfectly.

    CONS: None

    Mostly Great!
    Love it, excepting the above power cycle issue.

    PROS: Does exactly as it should in avoiding the obscenely greedy manipulation by HBO, et al, of the HDMI signal.

    CONS: Florida Power and Light (FPL) in my area turn off the electrical power to our neighborhood an average of twice a week. This unit has to be rebooted following each power outage.

    Good solution for limited-input TVs.
    My current TV has only two HDMI inputs and only one Component input. I am using this item with a Toshiba HD player and an old Sony DVD player. I do not use the DVI. I also have not yet used the remote.

    The unit functions perfectly. Switching is quick. Colors and positioning seem accurate. A nice solution to bring my components together on my limited-input tv. Highly recommended.

    PROS: Switches have a nice solid feel. Video processing is accurate. Very compact size.

    CONS: The downside to it's compact size is that it is not rack-mountable. And the LED's are indeed very bright however, electrical tape or some "Dim-it" (available thru Amazon) easily fixes the problem.

    Very dissapointing
    I was excited to have this for use on a TV with cable box, DVD player and PC HDMI output.
    Once connected i realized the picture quality on the TV was greatly deteriorated, even distorted. I disconnected after five minutes and apologized to the person i gave it to as a gift. Complete waste of time, money and gift wrap.

    PROS: easy to install, idiot-proof

    CONS: very poor video output quality

    Signal Combiner
    I used this device to combine the DVI and digital audio outputs on a Motorola satellite receiver and send them over an HDMI cable to a second tv set in another room of the house. The device works as advertised and has been problem free to date.

    PROS: Works as advertised, combines DVI or composite video signal with digital or composite audio and outputs them as HDMI. Ideal for sending HDMI signals over long distances. The unit is well priced.

    CONS: My only negative comment is that the LED status lights on the unit are very bright. I've covered them with a tinted tape

    Want it to work.
    Should have run multiple hdmi cables in wall. Now trying to use one cable, with little luck so far. Previous post about bright LEDs is correct. Easily corrected with electrical tape, but problem foreshadows issues of possible poor qc and design. Ps2 w/ component out works beatifully direct to tv, but when run through the switch, brightness fluctuates so that even a temp adjustment can not fix the long term brightness. Resolution is worse than standard, and pixelated at times. I am sure mono price will stand by their product, but I would prefer these issues to be figured out before I spend my money on it. Waited for this item after being out of stock for a while.

    PROS: Relatively small

    CONS: Fluctuation of brightness, and less than hd signal.
