Our Analysis
Watch the Commercial
Read Amazon Reviews

We found the largest number of user-written reviews and ratings at Amazon.com, where more than 70 users review the Handy Switch -- with about two-thirds happy with it and the rest giving it a thumbs-down. Users reviewing it at Buzzillions.com report the same good and bad news. Tests at two TV stations confirm that well-functioning Handy Switch units really do work as claimed. A review at Kaboodle.com warns about a tricky ordering process online. Users recommend buying the unit at a local store instead -- one with a good return policy for defective items.
