Everywhere in the product page it mentions 4k but nowhere is it mentioned 60hz. So you can definitely assume 30hz. No thank you.
If I were to buy two of these, then strip some HDMI cables and wire to put them together to act as one, in parallel, would it be possible to get 60 hertz 4k?
Basically I would have to press two switches to activate an input in the end.
Of course that would take some work, and cost $22.50 plus the extra tax, and there are probably ones that will work at that price.....
but for science.

I am thinking about buying because I've been working from home and every morning/evening I unplug my HDMI cable from my work laptop and plug it back into my desktop. With this I would just click the button twice a day.

My question is: How is this product better than this one?

4k @ 10Hz? Most likely this can't support 4k @ 60Hz

No, the Hz is managed by the onboard chipset in the device. The manufacturer needs to build it to be specifically compatible with 60hz. And when they do that, they are *always* proud of it, and will state it clearly in the title and description. If you ever see an adapter of any sort claim 4k but do not see 60hz mentioned, then you can assume it is 30hz junk and not worth your money or time.

@30hz. No, not 60hz.

I bought this 5-port (or one that looks just like it, there's several of the same-looking thing on Amazon) - https://www.amazon.com/iArkPower-...07YKFX7LQ/ yes, it's more money, but it's given me 0 problems with my PS4/X1/Roku Ultra/etc. @4K/60 for those looking for a good 4K/60 solution. I think there's a similar model with 3 ports if you only need 3 as well, but I could be wrong. HTH.

This seems like a solid referral. I just got a Dolby Atmos sound bar and need something for my PS4 Pro, AppleTV 4K, and SteamLink to my 4K TV.

Don't buy this for your PS4 pro and Xbox one X and your 4K TVs. You'll get artifacts and pictures cutting in and out. Unless of course, you set those consoles to output 1080p. The cheapest true 4K@60hz switch I've seen is around $25-$35 on Amazon

Reviews also indicate that the included remote does not include a battery, so you'd need to pick one up separately. Seems odd these days, so flagging for folks.
This typically indicates that the item was not repackaged in the United States. Coin cell battery shipments are highly regulated/complex so it can actually be interpreted as a positive sign when they're excluded as the items which include them either do so with careful respect for the regulations... or without any respect to the existing regulations.

Good luck!

Thanks, I am NOT a paid reviewer just for the record! laugh out loud I did do a lot of research and read reviews before I bought mine, though.

Quote from TodayOnly
:
a reviewer said that it might not have "HDCP 2.2 specifications"
The lack of HDCP is clear from the following:
  1. Support for HDCP would so significant as to be clearly included in the specifications and the manual [ssl-images-amazon.com] (it is not mentioned in either)
  2. The price is far below the price range of 4k HDCP devices
  3. The reviews pretty clearly distinguish between positive reviews (worked fine with a computer, projector and other devices which don't care about HDCP) and the negative reviews (TVs and game consoles, many of which depend upon HDCP support)
This is fine for switching some computers to a projector, but would be worthless for any traditional video source (BluRay, cable box) without additional equipment to manage HDCP. As such it's almost false advertising on the part of an AmazonBasics product (which are usually more clearly labeled).

Good luck!
Jon

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D2738DN/
Switching between two PC sources is indeed the perfect use case for an HDMI device like this that otherwise lacks HDCP support.
The improvements of the AmazonBasics device over what you listed would be as follows:
  1. External power
    Although HDMI provides enough power for basic switches, why not put that load somewhere else (like a basic USB wall wart, or even an unused USB port on your TV).
  2. Branding
    AmazonBasics isn't exactly premium branding. But at least if you order the device from Amazon you'll get what you ordered. So much of the brand X gear on Amazon will vary based upon the seller and even when ordered. There's no consistency and support after the sale will be guaranteed zero. I'd use the brand X item in a pinch but I'd probably not leave it connected to my devices at all times.
Will both devices operate for your intended purpose? Yes. Would I recommend the AmazonBasics over the one you linked? Every day. Monoprice is pretty reliable source for similar devices, and Sewell is another option I can recommend.

Good luck!
Jon

from somewhere I read is that battery is a potential fire hazardous, during shipping, think most electronic devices do not include batteries anymore, unless indicated. customers may purchase batteries at a local shop.

I have an old ass TV that only has 2 HDMI inputs. I have one of those push button 2-port splitters for like eight bucks to connect three devices to it. This would probably be a bit nicer (but larger). TV is only 1080p so lack of 4k/60 is no big deal to me.
