OFF TOPIC: Great Tech Deal!

I saw a great deal and thought I would share. If you have a HD TV with a limited number of HDMI ports, this is for you. It is a 3 port HDMI switch. In other words, if your TV only has one HDMI port, you can use this switch to connect three components (BluRay, game system, cable box, etc.) at once.  The switch also comes with a remote to switch between components.  The price is $24.99 plus $5 shipping.

But wait!  There’s more!  (Always wanted to say that…)

This also comes with three six foot HDMI cables.  This switch and three cables are cheaper than what you could buy two HDMI cables for at Wal-Mart.  If you are worried about the quality of the HDMI cables, don’t be.  According to CNET, “Expensive Cables Aren’t Worth It.”

Even if you don’t need this at the moment, I recommend giving serious thought to buying it now for future needs.  My plasma TV only has one HDMI input and that is all I need right now for my DVD player.  However, more and more things are going to be using HDMI in the coming years.  I’d much rather spend $30 on a switch like this than buy a new TV.

  2. You’re right…that is a super deal on that switch with the cables. The cheapest I’ve seen those switches were @ $35 with no cables. Have you ever looked at http://www.monoprice.com to buy cables? They are the cheapest I’ve found. I can get 6 ft. HDMI cables for @ $3 each.

  3. Those cables are very cheap. If your interested in HDMI, chek out my blog. Its on cables, computer connections, home cinema connections such as HDMI, DVI etc

  4. Cheap in price only…..not quality.

  5. One big negative with this switch…. it looks like the only way to switch between components is with the remote control. In other words, if you lose the remote, you have a paper weight.
