Before connecting the splitter, I "ohmed it out". It is a simple splitter with "straight thru" wiring, good for any 3 line level (approx 1 volt) signals. I used it to split the output of a VCR: composite video + L , R audio. It seems to function fine. Reason for Lower rating: The plugs were extremely tight and hard to plug in, even after adding a little connector lubricant. So much force was required, I was afraid I would damage the plug-ins on the VCR. This is not uncommon with RCA connectors, and the usual fix is to slightly bend the outer shield segments for an easier fit. When I did this (as I have many times on other cables) the 1st time, the shield piece snapped off. It wasn't bendable--probably "pot metal", which should not be used for this!
I got one of these to use with an Elgato capture card and the image quality produced was noticeably worse than simply using the Elgato's passthrough. The image it sent to my TV was dim and blurry. Fixing the brightness was bearable, but there's no fixing the sharpness when the source itself is blurry. The thing even broke on me because it's so cheaply made. One of the female outputs (blue) got ripped out because the component cables I were using were on too tight.
My biggest fear with getting this was that the video quality would be lost, but thank goodness it doesn't! I had this plugged into the component slot of my TV, and it was stiff and jetted out of the TV, making it look ugly. My component slot on my TV was on the side, and when I had this splitter attached it would fall off sometimes since the splitter is heavy and the end of the cable wasn't sturdy enough. I have since remedied this with a component cable extender.
In short, the splitter does it's job, and doesn't lose quality!
