The Best HDMI Splitter in 2022

Last Updated on March 14, 2022

We recently covered the best HDMI Switches here on PC Guide, and there is always some confusion as to what the difference is between Splitters and Switches. In fact, they actually do completely opposite things. A Splitter, like those we have here, take one HDMI input and splits it to multiple displays – for example, you could take the signal from your GPU and send it to a 4K TV as well as your monitor.

An HDMI switch takes multiple inputs and outputs them to the same display. Are you confused yet? In truth most people won’t have a real need to send one signal to multiple devices, but when you do need to do it, it is a round-up like this that will save you the trauma of hunting around yourself.

We have picked three of the best on the market to put through their paces. While you are here, you might want to check out our roundup of the best HDMI cables too.

Our Verdict

The Newpower Matrix is both a switch and a splitter combined, and once you get your head around the power that brings in a variety of setups, it becomes the obvious choice. The ability to put multiple inputs and route them to different outputs is geek heaven. It’s reasonably priced, well built and all you will ever need for a good while to come.
