HDMI Switch, Splitter and Extractor Shootout

Here’s a shootout of a bunch of HDMI splitters, switches and audio extractors I’ve been using.  They’re all zero-lag devices (even in downscaling modes!) and appear to work well with retro gaming devices, including the OSSC.  The first “reviews” are the longest, as they explain everything you need to know about these devices, then the rest reference those.  Here’s affiliate links to everything discussed, with their original written reviews linked below:
