I'm always reluctant to post to such an old thread, but, where else better on this subject? lol.

Are there any updates to this topic?

I clicked on this link below, and was amazed at the prices being so much lower than what was talked about elsewhere here. Can this really be accurate?
I'm seeing the 4 way for less than $5.00. 8 way for less than $7.00.
If the 8 way is so cheap, is there any reason not to use it? I know it was mentioned that the 4 way is fine. For those who've used both, what one is best?

8 way....
