DealExtreme: Switch Audio / Composite Video and S-Video with 4 doors (4-Port Composite/S-Video AV Media Signal Switch Box)

The review today is a Switch Audio / Composite Video and S-Video with 4 doors (4-Port Composite/S-Video AV Media Signal Switch Box) acquired on DealExtreme. This device allows you to connect up 4 appliances (DVD, Videogame, Satellite TV, etc.) on a TV / VCR / etc. that has only one set of audio / video. The highlight of this device is that output and two inputs have S-Video connections, beyond traditional composite video connections and stereo audio (3 plugs RCA). While TVs have plenty of recent entries, TVs somewhat older generally have at most only a single component video input, a single S-Video and composite video some.

This chaveador is an outfit that I was looking for a good time here, in local stores was extremely complicated to explain to vendors what I was wanting, since they do not know what a switcher, switch, selector or whatever name you choose. And as far as local stores have available switcher is a yellowing of poor quality, only with composite video and stereo audio, equals ess da DealExtreme, whose only difference is be blue instead of yellow. A DealExtreme also have a Version with S-Video, but only a single S-Video, totally useless for my purposes. I also tried the online stores that sell over the internet with no success, I found only one similar device of Transcortec, but the price was so abusive that I could buy a TV for each machine and no longer need the switcher :). He had given up on finding this equipment in Brazil, I thought I'd build one or buy abroad as a model Dynex da esse or ess da Philips, that appear to have even better quality than the DX, besides having more ports S-Video, but are more expensive and could complicate passage through customs on my return to Brazil. And a few days before traveling this model appeared in DealExtreme, and so decided to buy it.

O device traz como modelo AV-109, apparently no manufacturer name, or if, is in Chinese and I could not understand. There are four inputs and one output, entries of which 1 and 2 have S-Video and composite video only other. The selection is made through a dial fairly soft, and a mechanical indicator mark which input is selected. The device needs no power for all connections are only mechanical. On the back of the pack is an example of use with a DVD player and three video games. Interestingly the scheme on the back does not show anything about the S-Video port. The device comes with one of those audio and video cable quality standards sufferable, with three RCA plugs at each end: composite video (yellow) and stereo audio (white and red).

The picture quality and sound seems to change on account of the switcher, I conclude that it was a good buy. The manufacturer owed just over S-Video ports, if he would be better S-Video inputs on all four instead of just two.

As a buy, on request 08/06, but only sent on 19/06, in other words, a DealExtreme gave a good wound and exceeded the time limit laid down what was typical in 2-5 days. The package eventually reached here on 08/07, exactly one month later. The description came as “AV EQUIPMENTS”, com declared value em 40 Hong Kong dollars (near 10 real), and without registration, by trying to purchase is valued at less than 15 USD. The package was not taxed.

Wait for the next review, which is a Portable Slim External Optical Drive USB 2.0 Combo Blu-Ray 2X + DVD /-RW 8X + CD-RW 8X (Slim Portable USB 2.0 2X Blu-Ray + 8X DVD /-RW + 8X CD-RW Combo External Optical Drive). If you also want to shop in DealExtreme, directly from Hong Kong, click here and good shopping.

Fabricio, blz?
Help me on one thing? I ordered the day 12/07 and the products were in the order of the date stock. No give 16/07 I made another request and this has already been placed in the mail. I know it can occur in any order be dispatched before another previously done, but I'm finding it strange today (12/07) The first application is the status of “Waiting for Supplier”.

It's happened to you so long to take pro status change and posting them in the mail ? I searched the site some email direct from DX and a place to get in touch but found nothing.
Thank you.
