I’ve got some audio/video products in for review and we’ll start off with an HDMI splitter from a company called CiNgK. This little box can take one signal and split it into two so you can take the signal from your cable box for instances and watch it on two TVs, or from your computer and basically do the same thing. The box is small and well made as it is metal, it’s very simple to use, plug and play really. Read on to learn more…

The CiNgK HDMI splitter comes in a small brown box with just a label on the bottom of it. Inside of the box you’ll find a plastic tray with the splitter itself wrapped in plastic for protection. Once you get everything unpacked you’ll find the splitter, power supply and user guide.
The splitter box itself is small about about 4x2x1 inches in dimensions and it has a metal housing making it durable but the metal helps dissipate any heat as well. On the top of the box is the CiNgK logo along with LEDs for power, input, and the two outputs. The bottom of the box is bare except for some certifications, there are no rubber feet to keep it from sliding around.
On the front side of the box is where you’ll find all the connections for power, and the HDMI input and two HDMI outputs.
The four LEDs are rather bright. The red LED stays on as long as there’s power and the green input and output LEDs come on when they sense a signal. It depends where and when you’ll be using this splitter I guess, but the LEDs are bright and if you’re using it at night of in the dark they might be disruptive depending where you have the box. A piece of electrical tape though can easily fix the bright LED issue.
As far as usage the box couldn’t be any easier to use, really it’s just plug and play. Plug your source into the input and then plug your two monitors or TVs into the outputs and that’s it.
The CiNgK 2 Way HDMI splitter couldn’t’ be any easier to use really, it’s just plug and play and that’s it.
The housing is metal making it durable and it looks fine so it should fit in with your entertainment center if need be, and it’s small enough to be hidden out of site as well.
The box does have four rather bright LEDs on it that might be considered disruptive in a dark setting.
+Well made metal housing
+Very easy to use
-Rather bright LEDs
