    When an input is not selected to display on either output, does the device on that input see "no connection," or does it see a "phantom display"? To put it another way, when an PC's input is not chosen, I would rather the PC is told "you have no second screen" than to have the PC feel free to open windows onto a "phantom screen" that it thinks is there but which isn't visible to anyone.

    I have two monitors and I want to use this switch to switch between a desktop PC with a dual monitor setup and a laptop with a dual monitor setup. Is this possible with this switch?

    BEST ANSWER: These switches have 4 inputs and 2 outputs, all are HDMI.
    Assuming the monitors you are using are used for both the PC and the Laptop, this may be possible. You will need to be able to provide 2 inputs from your PC and 2 from your laptop to plug into the HDMI input ports on the switch. Inputs are labeled as 1, 2, 3, 4. Outputs are labeled as A and B, with 1 of your monitors hooked up to A and the other hooked up to B. Assume your PC inputs would be 1 and 2, and your laptop inputs are 3 and 4. You can then select input 1 to go to A and input 2 to go to B which would allow you to view your PC. You can also select input 3 to go to A and 4 to go to B and you can now view your Laptop.
    This seems to have been made before 4K. Has anyone tried this with a 4K signal to see if it works?

    Works, but a few probs
    This switcher has been a nice addition, since I have numerous HDMI devices and only one input on my TV and I hate having to always switch them out. But I've notice a few problems now that I've been using it for a while.
    First, I have a Dish DVR connected to it. It plays all the regular HD channels fine, but when I try and play a premium channel (HBO, Showtime), it puts up a warning that says it doesn't support HDCP copy protection. So all the stuff I've recorded on my DVR can't be viewed thru the switcher.
    Second, it has all kinds of trouble recognizing my PS3. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. Not sure why. I changed up all the HDMI cables, so it isn't a cable issue.
    Apple TV, WDTV, XB360, PC all work fine.

    PROS: Can connect 4 HDMI devices without having to constantly switch cords around.
    Remote Control.

    CONS: Switcher is a bit wonky

    Nice Switch, but some flaws.
    Nice switch, the only problem is when you change the source within either A or B, both displays go blank for about 4 seconds while the switch makes the HDCP handshake. I am not sure if this is a glitch in the switch or not. I understand that the display your watching needs to make a new handshake when your are changing the input for that particular output, but if your not changing the other display, why should that lose the picture/audio briefly only to have to re-connect? Just my opinion, I have not tried other matrix switches so I can't compare that this happens with most 4X2 Switches.

    Supported 3DTV!
    I ordered this to help switch between devices between a Panasonic HD 3DTV 50" Plasma and a smaller Samsung 32" LCD (non-3D) TV. We've got a TiVo, PS3, XBox 360, and BD3D player. My big concern was supporting 3D, since that's part of HDMI 1.4, not HDMI 1.3b. But the switch works perfectly. Yes, it has that 4 second delay between devices, but this doesn't bother me in the slightest. The only complaint I have with the device is the IR receiver seems to be set in a bit too much, making the remote a bit finicky.

    Excellent device in term of functionality and quality for the price. Overall it does its job nicely even though sometimes you have to reset the device to get the picture back on screen. The remote control actually saved me a lot of time because it's quite a far distance from where my couch is to the screen.

    The build quality and layout design earn this device a plus point. Strong metallic cover encapsulates everything in a really small box but still provides enough space for 4 input and 2 output ports.

    From my personal perspective, this device is well worth the money and definitely a better choice compare to other more expensive devices from BIG brands.

    PROS: Does what it supposed to do. Two HDMI outputs at the same time is a really nice feature.

    Small and good looking design which is really easy to hide. Really awesome device for the price. Simple and well designed remote control.

    CONS: The LEDs are too bright.

    Needs to be reset sometimes (once every 2 or 3 days) or else everything I will get is a color flashing screen.

    Very Mad
    Yes the LED lights are bright! but you are crazy if you pass this product up if you want a switch or splitter. I just wanted a switch since i already had a splitter ($85) when i got this i wanted to throw my splitter away! this guy is awesome, if your reading this you should have already bought at least 1!

    PROS: Works flawlessly. Basic design, great price!

    CONS: You will be very mad at how much you paid for other splitters and switches when you find out how awesome this thing is.

    IR Issues Otherwise Works Great
    So now it works great except for the IR not working with the Monoprice Dual Band IR Repeater.

    The entire reason I bought this one was because of the remote feature. I have all of my devices and the switcher in one closet and have a it run to two TVs in my house. Because the IR Repeater doesn't work with it I have to get up and go across my house to change what device I am using. You would think that a IR repeater that is a Monoprice Brand product would work with a device that has IR that is also Monoprice Brand. Super Frustrating!

    PROS: Works and switches well after initial setup and getting devices to be ok with the device

    CONS: Had problems with devices going through at first.

    IR doesn't work with the Monoprice Dual Band IR Repeater

    Awesome product! It arrived quickly, the packaging was nicer than I expected and it was 100% plug and play. It makes fast changes to the inputs, and is a small compact design. Only thing I didn't care for was the led lights that indicate what input each screen has selected are very very bright. I had to move mine to not be at eye level other wise its like someone standing next to the TV with a led key chain flashlight aimed at your face. The quality of the product, ease of use, and reliability of the product is exactly what you would expect form Monoprice, freaking terrific!

    I would recommend to a friend.

    PROS: Easy to use, switches between inputs quickly, small and compact.

    CONS: The lights are to bright.

    PID 6416 4x2 Splitter
    I traded this for another switch from Monoprice hoping the Comcast box would work. After learning Comcast boxes are not compatible with HDMI switches, I kept the second box and plugged all my devices into that and ran the cable box to the second HDMI input on the TV. I gave this splitter a 10 even though I no longer have it because It did what any other HDMI switch could do and did it for less. If you've got a Comcast cable box, keep this in mind when planning your HDMI switch set up.

    PROS: Works well with my Blu Ray player and Play Station.
    Small, compact.
    Remote control.

    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.

    Would be perfect if the lights on the front weren't so bright.

    PROS: Works well as described and easy to set-up and manipulate.

    CONS: The lights on the front are beyond bright, and I had to go outside and stare into the sun for awhile just to take a break.

    Works, but NOT flawlessly.
    Overall, well... you get what you pay for - but it works. (usually)

    It's all I could afford, and if that's your case too, ya just have to learn its idiosyncrasies, and live with it.

    Can't beat the price though for a matrix switcher... but try to step up if funds allow it.

    (Note: these flaws MAY go away in latter s/n units... if the MFR changes the firmware)

    PROS: 1) Cheap

    2) Very small

    3) Functionally it performs the job it is supposed to... with caveats...

    CONS: 1) The side-mounted output ports (one on each Left/Right sides) really get in the way... totally defeats the purpose of designing it into such a small package.

    2) The blue LEDs on the front panel are crazy bright (very directional)... be prepared to do something about this if you plan on using this in a darkened Home Theater. (the tiny remote, if leaned up against the front panel, will block the light... at least it's good for that)

    3) Sometimes the matrix switch loses sync with the source when switching things around... HDMI/HDCP negotiations fail, you will need to remove the DC power connector for a few seconds, then re-connect... the output channel status LED will light, and it will be OK. Seems to be related to the order of how the source/destination devices are turned ON.

    4) Remote control is super-cheap... doesn't have real buttons, but it works (usually).

    5) The inputs are not completely isolated from what's happening on the outputs, even when the matrix isn't connecting a given output to the input.

    My Example:
    HDMI Input 1 is connected to my HTPC Computer, after going through an active 1:2 HDMI-HDCP splitter. (the other Splitter output goes to my desktop Vizio 22" HDTV Computer Monitor).
    HDMI output 1 is connected to my HD projector.
    HDMI output 2 is connected to my 50" Sony HDTV.
    I have the Matrix Switcher selected to connect Input 1 (Computer) to Output 1 (Projector).
    Both "output" devices are turned OFF.

    Now, if I turn the Sony TV on (which, remember, is NOT presently 'connected' through the Matrix Switcher to my PC), the Computer gets "kicked" because something happened on its HDMI output... the PC realizes the "connected monitor" has changed, removes it from the active monitor list (it 'was' my "Primary Display" in a dual monitor Win7 setup), everything now gets thrown over to my secondary (smaller, non HD) computer monitor (which has temporarily been reassigned as my new Primary monitor), then, realizing that the previous monitor is still there, Windows reassigned everything back to my normal monitor.

    Here's the low-down... a Matrix switcher should completely isolate anything happening on an Output that's NOT selected/connected to a given Input... but this one doesn't... somehow. Maybe it's a matter of the intelligence/firmware in the Switcher "burps" when an output device gets turned ON, but this will cause HDMI/HDCP negotiation issues on all input-connected devices.

    Just be prepared for weirdness like this if used with a HTPC.
