I have been using the Gefen HDMI 441 switcher for a couple months now. I am using it with an HTPC, PS3, and HD Satellite Receiver. It has performed admirably. It is well designed and easy to set up. The picture quality going through it is exceptional. No degradation. I am amazed at how shallow the unit is. It is only a few inches deep. I have placed it behind my other AV gear and am using the optional IR receiver. You don't even see it. It is well constructed. Set up was a piece of cake. I only have minor quibbles about it:- I had to purchase DVI-HDMI adapters separately. I wish that [...] had offered HDMI-DVI cables as an option like Gefen does on their web site.- The unit doesn't always respond the very first time you press the button and it is somewhat particular about being pointed directly at the IR receiver.- I wish the unit had mounting holes so I could mount it out of the way behind my AV gear. It is small and the weight of the cables pulling on it makes it tricky to place.- I wish this unit had digital audio switching as well so I could just have one cable going to my receiver.- I find the blue accent color to be unappealing. I wish it conformed more to the look of traditional AV gear.- The LEDs on the front are VERY bright. I have mine tucked behind my rack so it is not an issue, but before it was, the bright lights were very distracting.Overall, this is a great product. It solved a nagging issue in my home theater for a very reasonable price. If your home theater uses all digital video sources like mine, this is a great way to streamline the installation and not have to put down for an expensive new receiver.

Very Solid product could use Auto Select

By LoneWolf Verified Purchaser from New York on 03/04/2007


Cons:

Not Auto Select, Can't Select On Unit

Pros:

Great Picture, Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up

Best Uses:

Home, Movies, Tv

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very good product, only two issues: 1) The unit is not a auto select so it must manually be changed to the item you want to recieve. 2) Can only change with Remote. If for some reason you misplace that small remote you can't use unit at all.

"I purchased the Gefen ...

By Paul D Verified Reviewer from Undisclosed on 04/26/2006

I purchased the Gefen EXT-HDMI-441 to connect my Comcast DVR (HDMI) and a Samsung DP850 (HDMI) to my Samsung plasma (HDMI). The connections were very simple to complete using the supplied HDMI cables and instructions. Once all the connections were made I was able to switch from the DVR to the DP850 simply by using the supplied remote control unit. The switching was crisp and the high-definition output and digital audio from both input sources were the same as if there was a direct HDMI connection. I recommend this device to anyone who wants to use a HDMI display with 2 to 4 HDMI sources. I am very pleased with this unit.

"This switch works ...

By James M Verified Reviewer from Undisclosed on 03/07/2006

This switch works flawlessly with all inputs at both 720p and 480p where the Octava HDMI switch did not. Image is exactly the same through switch as direct (no degradation at all). Highly recommended! My setup: Input 1: DirecTV H10 HD receiver (HDMI) Input 2: HTPC ATI Radeon 9600 (w/ DVI_=_HDMI cable) Output: BenQ PE8700+ projector (DVI input w/ DVI_=_HDMI adapter)

"I purchased this item ...

By Dwayne H Verified Reviewer from Undisclosed on 02/21/2006

I purchased this item because my HDTV only had one hdmi input. Ive been using it for about two weeks now to switch back and forth between the satellite and DVD player. So far its working great. It was well packaged, came with a remote, extra batteries, and four hdmi cables. My only concern is that should you loose, misplace or break the small remote there is no other way to change ports. There are no front panel buttons. I think they should have included just a single button on the front just for this purpose.
