[Amazon.com] Price Error: Universal HDMI Switch with Cable (1m long) $4.93 @WalMart

Just got back from WalMart (London location on Fanshawe Park Rd.)

There's an HDMI smart switch cable there made by Pelican, listed on the shelf in the playstation section for $49.99.

Taken to the cash, it scans at $4.93 + tax, coming to a total of $5.57.

The cable is perfect for TVs with few HDMI ports, as its basically a cable with one end going into the tv, and splitting into two ends that can go into two different devices. The switch will automatically detect which input to use based on which devices are on. On the box the cable is listed as being 1m long.

Here is the exact product on amazon (for the same $49.99 price, has good reviews):

I think this is a hot deal, I only took one from the London location to leave the rest for all of you!

I have the receipt if needed and can scan it up if requested! Good luck!

Oh I didn't realize because he scanned the bar code on the back and that's the price that came up. I'm not sure how WalMart works with their pricing, but there was a few more on the rack at the London location that I went to, I would think they would all scan up at the same price.

I'll add YMMV to the title though if that is the case.

He's talking about a switchbox WITH a cable.

Hot deal if you have a need for such a device

Or even if you don't its worthit for the cable alone, and the switch can just act as an extender for your cable if necessary.

Remember .. although they rarely admit it, they are part of the SCOP, and as this is a scan error you should get $10 of the lower price, making it virtually free ;)
