Seems a good deal to me! I believe it switches automatically between HDMI devices when it receives signal from a different source. Runs off the HDMI power too, clever stuff!

so basically this things shuts up people who complain about only one HDMI slot? Or complain about no hdmi in the case of monitors? Seems a good price.

I bought one off ebay £4.78 inc. Arrived in 5 days too,

They go cheaper. If you believe the "75% off!" crap... you're just gullible. RRP is there to set an absolute maximum, not the actual worth. And yes, by the looks of it, these are just re-branded Chinese ones you see selling on eBay for ~£5.

Not really. It requires the input HDMI cable to supply power to it and also means you'll need an extra HDMI cable to connect it (so 4 cables to connect 3 appliances).

It's by no means a replacement for 3 HDMI slots, but rather an alternative if you find the need for more later on in your purchase.

Thanks, so politely put! I am fully aware that RRP's are often used as a marketing ploy, I just posted this as for it's function I think it's bloody cheap! - 4 HDMI sockets, auto-switching circuitry and casing. I bet you couldn't build one cheaper...

I've had Chinese imitations before and from experience the build quality is very poor and delivery can take weeks or even months so stay well clear these days.

Oh, couldn't find that when I searched and ordered by cheapest (inc P&P) first. Poss because it was in Jersey, did you have to search "worldwide" for that? Anyway, looks cheap but if it does the job... let me know if it still works in a couple of months and may buy one for my other TV.
