    A Coupler That Couples With No Hassle

    Do note that this product is not necessary unless you have two short cables and are trying to increase their length combined. This product is fantastic if you are a customer looking to combine two shorter cables to reach your intended outcome without having to buy an additional cable. The only drawback is that if you have two HDMI cables of differing qualities (for instance, one Monster cable and one Dynex cable), then the quality will be consistent with that of the lower cable (in this instance, it would be the Dynex cable). As such, my recommendation to ensure the best quality throughout is to have cables of the same brand so as to maintain consistency. So long as you do this, the coupler inevitably couples with ease and gets the job done most efficiently. Related products are HDMI cables. I have ranked them from the best quality--though these cables are pricier--to decent quality, which are cheaper. 1) Monster cables are superior for both durability and quality. You can learn more by reading my review of the product on its webpage. 2) Rocketfish cables are a happy medium for both price-point and quality. Again, you can learn more by reading my review of the item. 3) Dynex cables are the most affordable and offer enough quality to get the job done, but oftentimes can end up getting ruined quite easily. As stated, you can learn more by reading my review of the product.

    I was in charge of audio/sound for a wedding at our church and we have a million little adapters but no one had a coupler to extend the projectors for that much-needed baby slideshow. We went through a rehearsal at about 9 pm the night before and I couldn't find anything that would work. Luckily I found that my local BestBuy had this in stock so I purchased for store pick up. I got it when they opened the next morning and saved the day, literally, with this device and the BestBuy in-store pickup option.

    Makes it easy to connect multiple HDMI devices

    My HDTV has 2 HDMI inputs, but one is covered by my wall mount and is inaccessible. So I got this HDMI switch so I can connect multiple devices to my 1 available HDMI port. The switch does the job and connecting it is easy. You can change inputs with the button on the switch box or with the mini-remote that's included. Negatives: - It can be hard to tell which input it is set to or switching to next based on the LEDs on the device. - Price -- this seems very expensive for what little it does and how few components go into making this device. If there was a Best Buy Insignia branded switch it probably would be considerably less, but they don't offer that accessory yet.

    Excelent HDMI Coupler

    I work as a Professional AV Tech. Owning a small Sound Business. I've used many HDMI couplers only to find most of them to be of poor quality. In the industry, we try to use the right length of cables with the appropriate combination of ends. HDMI to HDMI, HDMI to DVI, Etc... To reduce the risks of signal loss and to avoid another possible connection that will turn to failure. I really like these HDMI couplers made by Rocketfish. They are robust. Not to bulky like some couplers and I've seen them outperform other couplers when having issues with Signal loss. With HDMI being a Digital signal. It's very sensitive to interference.

    Does what it should

    This HDMI coupler does exactly what you need it to do, extend the length of an HDMI cable...But at a high cost. It is a quality built product with a nice metal housing and gold connectors, but I paid more for this coupler than a 6' HDMI cable. Still, cheaper than buying a longer HDMI cable, 50' in my case, so I guess that's why they feel they can justify the price. It seems to be just a pass-through coupler, because it works with my 3D TV, 3D Blu-ray and 3D capable A/V receiver. Get this if you need to extend a long cable run, it's cheaper than a new cable. For short runs, just get a longer cable.

    I purchased this item to put two HDMI cords together I don't know why it's so hard to find a coupler this is the only one I could find at Best Buy and it was like goldplated very expensive but it's built very well I must say and it does work so it does it's job just fine but it was over $25 just for one and that seems a little bit overpriced to me so there's good and there's bad but in the end I'm a happy camper.

    Purchased to connect two long HDMI cables together to extend cable from TV in the living room through the wall to computer in the bedroom, so I can mirror my computer on the big screen tv. Use an active usb cable through the wall to connect mouse and keyboard long distance via usb, so I can use my computer from a comfortable chair in the living room, for whatever, movies, internet, word or excell docs. The HDMI couple wokrs and does what it is supposed to do.

    It's an HDMI coupler and it works. Plug one HDMI cable in on one end and another on the other end, you end up with one big HDMI cable. I don't know if one coupler works better than another if it gets the job done, but what I like about this coupler is that it is so small. There is no excess bulk to this device, it's as small as it's function allows. If you are looking to couple two HDMI cables together, look no further.

    Must Have Adapter for Firesticks

    This is a must have Adapter if you have an Amazon Fire stick or Chromecast. I have a flat screen TV mounted to the wall and my wife is OCD, so all my cables have to be concealed. So when ever I needed to hook my Firestick cr my Chromecast to the TV, I simply unplug the HDMI from my Apple TV box and plug the HDMI cable into the adapter and plug the adapter straight into the Firestick or Chromecast. That's it. It's just that easy. I love it.

    Beats buying a longer cable!

    Simply put I had 2 4' HDMI's and I needed a 6' or longer one. I was not in the market to buy a $60+ cable when I have plenty. So at $20 this thing allowed me to get the length I needed at minimal cost. Quality is great and everything is crystal clear. My only complaint is that this is just a coupler and they are charging a bit more than I think its worth considering what it does. I'm sure the marketers know folks will still buy considering the cost of a new/longer cable is far greater than this product is.

    HDMI Coupler

    This is perfect for Firestick install for a tv that is already mounted to a wall. You won't need to take it off the wall to plug it in. I just got a HDMI that was plugged into a bluray player, and connected the coupler to it, and plugged in the firestick. Super Easy. The coupler worked fine. I did not notice any quality loss.

    Moved, and in arranging everything in my new home, wound up with stereo system on one side of room, television on another, with a hall and doorway in between. Didn't want to spend big bucks for a long-run HDMI cable; this coupler is perfect to connect two 8-foot HDMI cables. Done! The cable is there when I want to use it, and I can easily move it out of the way when it's not needed. Arguably not the perfect audiophile's solution, but I'm one happy camper.

    I have an HDMI cable built into my wall and needed another one to reach to my new tv so I bought this double female connector. It works great for streaming movies on my laptop and watching tv from my Xbox but the one problem I have with it is latency, I can tell the different between just 1 HDMI cable and using these 2 cables connected when playing Xbox live games and there is a little lag between when I move the joystick on the controller and when I see it move on the TV.

    Works as advertised, solid product

    Not much more you can ask for in an HDMI coupler other than it works and is solid. My challenge was that my Lenovo uses a mini-HDMI connector and I walk into conference rooms that usually have a full-sized HDMI. The multi-adapters end up creating an odd turn in the HDMI cable that often caused screen flashes on the projector as things were loose. So... mini to full-sized HDMI cable, full-sized HDMI coupler, and George's your uncle!

    Picked these up to extend wiring that was already embedded in the ceiling of out how that we bought last year. Was a bit concerned that the quality would be low but no issues with these quality wise. Only issue is that one of them is slight loose on both ends. Easy fix with simply applying a little pressure from the outside with a clamp without cracking the body. I don't recommend these for anything 4K related though.

    We are running a HDMI cord between our cable box and our TV but running it through a channel in the wall. After our electrician ran it for us, what do you know but it was just a tad too short! We used this coupler to connect a short HDMI cord and the one run in the wall by the electrician. From what we can tell, there is no impact to the TV quality. So much better of a solution than paying the electrician to come back!

    I have bought several different "couplers" over the past year. I am an automotive instructor and there are times when I have to join 2 HDMI cables to get it to where I need it. While most other ones fail in a short period of time this one has stood the test of time. I have used it many many times over the past few months and the cables still connect like it was new. This is a great unit and I plan on buying a few more.

    I had choice of either purchasing an expensive 5m hdmi cable or somehow couple the two 3m perfectly good condition hdmi cables for connecting my new LG oled to Bose soundbar 700 using hdmi arc connection. This coupler did exactly that and now I have a long hdmi that I could run through the wall to hide all cables away.

    This product was used to connect two (2) short HDMI cable runs together for our church projector. The product works as expected. With the gold plated ends, I don't expect any failures due to corrosion. HINT: I used a couple of wire ties to anchor the two HDMI cable across the connector to increase its resistance to accidental disconnection.

    As my wife and I were installing a wall-mounted television, we needed to move several of the cables. While we did not end up needing this product (the HDMI cables we had were long enough to reach where we needed them to) and ended up returning it, it was very handy to know we could have used it. Should we be in a place where we need a coupler in the future, we will definitely go back for this product.
