KanexPro SW-HD20 Reviews

Works as advertised

A true 2.2 compliant switcher which does access and project HDR content. Unlike 1.4 switchers which “ support hdr content this unit is truly 2.2 compliant and supports 4k and hdr. Seems to offer great value for the price point

Low quality

This switch apparently works as advertised. Good picture and sound quality through multiple inputs. However, there are a few quality issues which will make me return the item. The first is the fit and finish. The aluminum casing is poorly made and doesn't fit the front and back panel quite right. Also, the lights on the front of the switch are too bright. If this is left in the open under your tv, as I have it set up, the lights can be distracting. Lastly, the switch doesn't automatically detect inputs and won't switch between them by itself, which is what I wanted it for. If it's in a cabinet or out of sight, perhaps it would be fine. But for the price, it doesn't work for me.

Nice little HDMI switcher

This little 5x1 switcher solved my problem of routing multiple HDMI sources into my TV with only 2 inputs. I have a DVD player, Cable box, Apple TV and Chromecast working well with it. Unit seems very well built and is a good small size. My only wish would be for a built in IR eye in addition to the remote IR eye on a cable.

Bought one but for using 4K it has to go to 30HZ can’t use at 60 HZ

At first look this is a great product. But I've come to realize very quickly that it's not as advertised and the manufacturer will lie to you. It advertises allowing 4K and UHD pass through. Technically it does. But I bought the Samsung true 4K UHD disc player and everything works expect playing a 4K UHD disc. It works plugged directly to the tv and all the cables are 18GBPS HDCP 2.2 compliant cables. I called the manufacturer and they said they support 4K and not UHD. Well the product description says it does. So no I won't recommend to anyone with a 4K system or plans to have one.

Easy to set up with common sense.

Easy to set up if you avoid the confusion of the manual. In the set up instructions inside the manual, there is a part that is confusing saying you cannot connect a blu ray player, but shows a blu ray connected in the diagram on the back. Disregard any thing that indicates what not to connect. Otherwise setup was easy.

Works great but...

... it seems that there's always a little surprise when you buy something. The surprise here is that there is no built-in IR sensor but rather a plug-in one with a long wire and a glue disk for mounting. Would have been nice to have a simple sensor to plug in (or a built-in one) instead of one with a wire for remote mounting. But I shall endeavor to persevere.

question

does the signal hold on an inactive port? meaning if I have a computer connected to input 1, and I switch to input 2, does the computer on input 1 think that it has lost the connection?
Asked by: Daniel S.
We are not sure of the process but we know that you do not lose the signal and that you can switch back and forth at any time.

question

Does it work bi-directionally? That is, will it switch one source to 3 different displays?
Asked by: Anonymous
We're afraid not. This will allow you to switch between 3 different sources on 1 display. To send one source to multiple displays you need a Splitter, not a switcher. Kanexpro offers B&H # KASPHD201X44, which is a 1x4 HDMI Splitter that is 4K. https://bhpho.to/2JeEMdW
