Good HDMI Switcher
I need to get a good HDMI switcher, any suggestions?

3 ports is fine for me.

From what I hear Gefen makes good stuff, but they are a little pricey. http://www.gefen.com/kvm/product.jsp?prod_id=4598

3 Port HDMI with video and audio.

Actually, I don't think $299 is a bad price for that...

Re: Good HDMI Switcher
For high end it probably isn't that bad, but you can get a Cables to Go 3 port HDMI switch for $85. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...897&CatId=3482

It can do a good job if it is passive since it really wouldn't do anything to interfere with the signal, but it probably doesn't use as good of components as a gefen would.

Oppo HM31. Anything else ****s up HDMI 1.3 transfer.

Re: Good HDMI Switcher
Switches, like cables, are way overpriced pretty much everywhere. Except monoprice:


Read the knowledge base page on there while you are at it. What they say there is 100% true. And that switch will work as good as any. Also, AFAICT, this switch has all of the same features as the $299 one linked above, though don't quote me on that as I haven't owned this particular one. 22 user reviews say it is a good one however.

Re: Good HDMI Switcher
Thanks for that link those are some awesome prices there. Anyone else ordered from there? Hows customer feedback?

Re: Good HDMI Switcher
I've ordered from monoprice before, didn't have any issues. Cables are very low priced and work very well.

I know many people on avs regularly order from there. Monoprice seems to be the HT equivalent of e.g. newegg here, at least for components anyways.

You would have to be stupid not to buy from them :)

I have spent maybe $100 with them in the last 6 months. On cables that would have retail cost me around $300-400

Monoprice FTW!

Shipping isnt as fast as newegg but with the price savings, who cares.
