Is the kinivo 4K HDMI switcher any good?
I’ve used Kinivo HDMI switchers in the past, still have then in fact, but since moving into the 4K world I decided I needed to get an HDMI switcher that was fully 4K-capable so I decided to try the Kinivo as I’ve had good experiences with their products in the past. So far, with 3 days of installed time, the switch has performed beautifully.
Do all the HDMI cables plug into the back?
All the HDMI cables plug into the back so you don’t have a cable mess dangling off the front. The picture quality from my various devices is just as sharp as a direct HDMI connection. So I am pleased. Part of me wishes the remote came with a battery, but honestly I just don’t need to use the remote right now. Great little switch.
