I had written a review on it, but the data loss on AVS recently took the review with it.
So here it is again.
Not many are using this switcher so I thought I would add my thoughts.
I had been using a 5x1 switcher which has been great in its performance.
Its a bigger box than I thought it would be, but it is rack mountable which is an added benefit.
The unit is all black and looks like another nice piece of gear in the rack.
It has a small remote, with no lighting at all.
The front green and red led lights can be bright with the selected source flashing its red , which I put an end to by using "skin" material to cover them.
The specs say the PC output is 1600x1200, yet I pass 1920x1080/60 from my HTPC with no issues. Not sure why they say that, as all outputs are rated up to 1080p. Maybe a typo.
It also does 1080/24 just fine.
Switching time is about 5 seconds, could be a bit faster.
Overall, I'm happy with its performance.
And for those of you who might wonder who needs 8 HDMI ports, here is what I have plugged into mine.
HD DVD XA2
JVC 5U DVHS
Oppo 971 DVD
