I needed to toggle between 2 camera shots on one screen for corporate video without investing in a video switcher. This helped me line up 2-shot and closeup shot cameras and compare lighting etc.

The HDMI output of my cameras were connected to one monitor via this switcher, and I wasn't disappointed. It saved me time and gave me a good sample output of the cameras.

My only minor issue was that switching between sources there was about a second of black, so when lining up two sources you needed to be patient.

Not the best choice

First one I got was DOA. Second works, but only with 2 inputs - I would not recommend this.

    Comments about Kopul HDMI Switcher 4 x 1:

    I only had 1 HDMI input on my TV so rather than changing the cable each time to watch Netflix I got this. Very easy to hook up, works great and even has a remote. However, I think it might degrade signal quality as not all the shows look that great. It could be my internet connection, not sure, or the shows themself.

      I am using this switcher to input a blueray player, vhs player,cable box and input for my photos.
      It works great and was reasonably priced.

          The TV I have only has two HDMI inputs and I have 4 devices so I asked the B&H staff for a solution and they pointed me to this device.

          I set it up in about 5 minutes and instantly added 4 ports. The greatest this is it is smart sensing so when I turn on a device plugged into it, it automatically switched to that device!

          I can't think of anything negative to say about this device.

            I use this to connect 3 HDMI devices to my TV. Setup is easy, just make sure you have the right amount of HDMI cables. The switcher automatically goes over to any device when it is powered on (in most instances). Thats makes it so that you really don't even have to hit the button to switch inputs. There is a 3-5 second delay in switching devices but for me that's not a real problem at all. It is small enough that I can put it on the TV stand behind my TV and you can't see it or the cables but can still easily access it.

            Great buy!

                  This HDMI Switcher was very easy to set up... It's compact size allows it to be placed in many different locations...It automatically switches to a device or by remote control, which is nice too! All at a nice price!

                          We used this switch to connect 4 laptops into an LCD projector for a large conference in our auditorium. We used one laptop for running videos and the other three had various presentations. Because our timeline was so tight, we needed to be able to switch between presentations and videos pretty quickly. The Kopul switch did a great job.

                          The only slight downside is that it took about 3 seconds for the next source to display. Not a huge deal but it did show a blue screen during that time so a couple of people thought it was a BSD.
