First time I saw this was today when someone commented about it in the new My Life In Gaming video. https://otaku-games.com/index.php?route ... duct_id=61
Has anyone seen or heard of this thing before? I tried searching for it here with no results. There's almost no information about this switch on their facebook or website.

They are also selling a version with additional six 6xRCA inputs: https://otaku-games.com/index.php?route ... rgb+switch

I can't deny I'm tempted to buy this monstrosity as I never use two consoles at the same time. Hmmm..

Hell it might not be the most pleasing to the eye but you cant argue with the price, i might get one just to see how good it is.

The 6xRCA inputs version is crazy looking heck i wold love to see a 10-12 scart socket version

That's a powered automatic switcher with a focus on quality and other features like acting as a distribution amplifier (powered splitter), sync stripper, sync separator, etc. This is a mostly unpowered manual switch with as yet unknown quality with no such extra features. They're not comparable.

Apparently they're releasing a version very soon with a case.

That maybe the case but my Brandbridge scart switch cost me £15 and never had any issues with it (bar the sending power to another console, but easily fixed) on the 8 or so console i have, i just dont see where the £170 is going, a sync sripper and separator doesn't cost that much. It does look the part, has a large selection of inputs and from what My Life Iin Gaming say it does produce an ever so slightly bright image!, but £170's worth?......im not so sure.

Hopefully the Lite version will be more reasonably priced

Where have you read this and do you know if they have plans for a model with more scart sockets?

They replied in the comments for the most recent My Life In Gaming SCART switch video on Youtube.
