      I don't have a high demand situation, just prefer to use hardwired where I can. I am rewiring portions of my house and updating my routers and wanted a distribution box that would reliably distribute the load. This switch does the job perfectly!

      The switch works as expected. Wall mount with key holes or desk mount with included rubber feet. Simple plug and play operation. One cable from modem to the switch, then plug in the rest of the ports. Haven't looked into any other features or if any exist since it is an unmanaged switch.

      Comparing to my older switch, when two or more diveces were used at the same time, my network got really slow and sometimes dropped the connection off. I don't have this issue any more and what I like the most is that does not use any fans to cool it off, so is noice less.

      This is a great 16-port switch that was easy to mount and set-up in my house. I bought it on Black Friday and I’ve had no problems with it. I’d definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a very reasonably priced, solid switch.

      Great switch for plug and play users. Probably has SOME advanced features but does everything I need right out the box. I can multiple tvs connected, multiple access point and whole house audio equipment.

      Decided to run ethernet to every room of my house as to have better speeds than we were getting with wi-fi. This worked perfectly to give me all the ports I needed for all the ethernet cords.

      Excellent switch. Use in events and tradeshows for booth networking. Best unmanaged before you get into managed switches.
