i bought two of these for an in-wall wiring of the three connections of this plate. everything about this plate model is nice, easy hookups, no wire splicing, just plug your in-wall wire to the connectors and mount to the in-wall box. the only problem i had was the hdmi connection was very very loose and would barely stay in place with hardly any pull of the wire at all. i had to put a tiny zip tie around the thin part of the hdmi wire (past the rubber that makes the head/plug portion), then put a second, larger ziptie through the first one, and then wrap around the frame of the wall plate. this is holding the in-wall hdmi cable in place securely and then i zip tied all the cables together about 1 foot away from the plate so that they all will be held in place. other than that, nice product.
PROS: composite and component hookups are nice and snug. they do a good job of holding onto the in-wall connection.
CONS: hdmi connection very loose for the in-wall side of the connection.
This was the only pre made wall plate I found for rca jacks. The hdmi was a bonus because I was installing the Dual port flexible hdmi wall plate anyway.
I like to use the Net jacket hdmi cables in the wall. They are sturdy and very well built. Being built the way they are, their bend radius is a 'little' larger than a regular hdmi cable. That being the case I had great difficulty with making the bend in the wall cavity. I was attempting to put two of these next to each other in a triple gang box. It would have worked if I would have placed the low voltage boxes (lower and upper) closer to the maximum length of the hdmi cable instead of having an excess of 12 inches or if I would have installed a recessed box that angles the wall plate giving a much greater amount of room for excess cable to bend without restriction.
So I wound up not connecting these hdmi ports and just using the rca jacks. They are great!! I can't wait to plug in and not have wires hanging every where!! Thanks Monoprice!!!
PROS: Rca jacks!
Insert fits into a standard dacora plate
CONS: Need more wall cavity space to use the Net jacket 'in wall' hdmi cable
Two issues, first is that the HDMI jack would not hold the cable well enough. It would just fall out as I tried to install it. This was ok since I really bought it for the 6 RCA connectors. I have two other HDMI's installed next to it. However, I was using a recessed gang box and there simply wasn't enough wall cavity left with the recessed box to fit the RCA cables. So now I need to "un-recess" this part of the box. Not really the product's issue, just don't expect good results with a recessed box.
Handy for HDMI and use either composite or component jacks. [Installation - connection] was easy except for the box size. Since HDMI or RCA cables will likely be stiff at the ends, when they attach to the inside of the jack, a deep box or open back box is needed. Quality of video and audio are good.
I needed a wall plate for A/V for my house. I have a projector with a ceiling mount and I needed analog A/V (for compatability with an old original X-Box system) and composite (for menu/setup on my AV/R) and HDMI (for HD sources). This did the trick, perfectly!
