Lowest cost HDMI Switcher

When I went out looking at HDMI switch boxes I was shocked at the prices.

The best price at BestBuy was $89.99, $29.99 and $299.99

The best price at RadioShack was:
AUVIO™ 4-In/1-Out HDMI® Selector Switch with Remote Control
Model: 15-318

Although they had a web special

CE labs® HM41SR 3-Way HDMI™ Switcher
Model: HS103

Well I found a very similar device for much less.

3 X 1 Mini HDMI Switcher w/ Intelligent Switch
$12.99 in Quantity 1 and in volume as low as $11.99

With UPS Priority shipping and tax is was $19.92

The HDMI®* mini switcher not only has the key-press-switching function, but also has the intelligent function. It routes high definition video (in multiple resolutions up to 1080p) and digital audio from any one of the several sources to display units. All inputs accommodate the connections of the high definition video sources simultaneously, compatible well for HD-DVD,SKY-STB, PS3, Xbox360 etc.

  • Support 12-bit Deep Color, full 1080p
  • Multifunctional on switching : Intelligent or mechanical
  • High performance up to 2.5Gbps
  • Supports 25Meters HDMI Cable on both ends of the Switcher
  • Maintains high resolution video - beautiful, sharp HDTV resolutions up to 1080p, 2k, 1440p graphics and computer resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 are easily achieved

But a Google Ad on the Bestbuy web page listed one for
$21.99 from

High Speed HDMI and HDCP 3 Ports Mini Switch with External IR Receiver and Remote, Intelligent Auto Switch, No AC Power Needed (195-116) with 3 pcs of 6 Feet High Speed HDMI Male to Male Digital A/V Cable, 30 AWG Cable (193-350)

This is probably the best deal because it come with 3 HDMI cables!
