Im after one but i heard some of them dont work with the xbox and ps3...what features do you have to look out for? Heres the features of a cheap one on ebay:

The feature that throws me off is that it only supports 12 bit deep color...will xbox and ps3 be compatible with a hdmi switch with these features?

I purchased mine off Monoprice. Nice little unit that came with a remote, although I have the Harmony One programmed for it. It works well switching between my FIOS box, PS3, and Bluray player. I don't have a Xbox, but I don't see why it wouldn't work with one.
