Is there a highly-regarded reasonably priced Scart Switch box that isn't rare as hen's teeth or discontinued? Currently I only have two consoles that I need it for so even a two-port switch would be fine. One is a Mega Drive with a RetroGamingCables "Packapunch" CSYNC cable, and the other a Super Famicom with a cheap RGB Scart cable that carries a perfectly good picture. I'm not concerned with auto switching or remote controls etc, just a simple manual one is fine, but the golden question is are there any with zero RGB image degradation that I can buy easily and are not stupid expensive?

I had good luck when I was first starting out with a Hama 100S (or one that looked nigh-identical, from a company called "Goobay"). Take a look at reviews here:

Cool, that Hama one seems to be easily available but here in the UK seems to come under the name Technika. So that doesn't have any image issues that you noticed? The review said it was perfect in that regard

I can highly recommend the Bandridge SVB 7725. 5:1 & manual. You can get them new for ~20EUR, there's absolutely no quality loss, noise etc. even when you chain multiple of them and since they're passive / manual & fully connected they're compatible even with unusual signals like YPbPr or Sync-on-green. I even recommend them over vastly more expensive highend gear like a gscart simply because they can handle absolutely everything you throw at them with no visible quality loss.

Great, that one is easily available and a good price. Has some great features too. Thanks for the comments! Looks like that's one of my best options then.
