    judging from monoprice description of same item "Note that this splitter does not pass the HDCP copy protection information, so it is unsuited for use in home theater systems. Please use one of our powered splitters for home theater applications. "

    that switch says it's only 1.3; meaning it's possible that it will allow a 3D signal to go through it but it's not guranteed.

    I don't see a wallwart mentioned. Un-powered steals power from the hdmi signal path.

    as long as you make sure it's 5VDC and the right polarity.

    just remember, that one isn't 1.4 either so if 3D is important to you you may be taking a gamble.
