Sure can't go wrong with those vendors. But they're expensive!
A couple of years ago I bought a Monoprice 4x1 switch. It was garbage.
But just last week I bought another 4x1 from Monoprice and it works fine. I think they changed the OEM. The new Monoprice stuff in the green boxes all seems to work well. I have several of the newer porducts.
On a technical note, the early low cost HDMI switchers and splitters were just high bandwidth analog circuits. I know, I took my first 4x1 apart to see. Nowdays there are quite a few off shore low cost chip sets to use that are true TDMS compliant circuits.
