"I would give it half a star, but it worked for 3 months"1.0 starson by watsdamattau
Pros: When it works it does a decent job.
Cons: Broke after only 3 months. They give a 3 year warranty, but expect you to have proof of purchase and your original store receipt available. If you don't have it, kiss your unit goodbye. The automatic switcher sometimes doesn't work.
Summary: This unit was perfect when I first purchased it in December. The auto switching would get mixed up periodically. However, it performed fine with my PS3, Xbox360, and my digital TV tuner plugged in.
Earlier this week I plugged my PS3 back into the unit and suddenly there's speckles all over the screen. Then there's video noise from it trying to sync up. Suddenly it stopped trying to find the PS3. I tried resetting the PS3 and redoing everything. Same thing. I tried numerous HDMI cables and they all experienced the same problem when the PS3 finally came up in port 1. I tried to get an RMA from IOGear and they said no original store receipt and proof of purchase, then no warranty work. They expect a person to keep the box and receipt for as long as 3 years...and be able to find them. So I now have a $100 e-waste item.
So 3 months of use and now it's dead. What a lousy product and what lousy customer service.
