I needed an inexpensive way to switch between my acoustic and electric guitars during leading of worship. I used to unplug and plug each guitar into my direct box. But this this little box, the process is so much easier! And it worked great during its first week-long conference test. I recommend it!
Advantages: CHEAP, clean, and quiet. Disadvantages: Only runs on 2 AAA batteries, and you must unplug the cable from the input/output jack to prevent the battery from dying. Recommendations: Great tool for studio and/or home use. If you are on the road, you might want to consider the Whirlwind or Lehle switchers.
I use the Boss Ab-2 2 Way Selector Pedal to switch between electric and acoustic-electric guitars. It's easy to set up and use and comes with stickers to label the 2 different channels. The unit works well in live situations and is pretty quiet too. It's built in a rugged metal or aluminum chasis. The only inconvenient thing about the AB-2 is that the batteries are hard to access because you have to take the whole unit apart to get the battery compartment.
I got this switcher used so for the price I am happy with it. However, if I were buying a new one I would probably try to find one that takes a power adapter. It's annoying to have my whole board on power and then have to unplug this each time I am done. Note that this is an A/B only, you cannot run both outputs at the same time. I use it to select between my clean and reverb channels on my Fender Deluxe Reverb RI and it works fine for that. You can also use it to select between two inputs. This switch doesn't feel as robust as most Boss products, but time will tell.
