      First, the product description says this switch is unmanaged. I want to confirm to prospective buyers that this switch is, in fact, a managed switch with a web interface you can use to configure things like QoS, test ports, etc. You can also download a Windows-program to manage it that way. Second, this is rack mountable as the description says. The description doesn't mention that this includes screws and standoffs to actually mount it. I thought I'd clarify that, in case anyone was wondering. I bought this switch to replace a very very old piece of equipment in my home network (a DS108 8-port 100 Mbps fast ethernet hub) as I had recently upgraded my internet connection out of the dark ages. I wanted something with enough ports to support my home now, and in the future. I also wanted a POE capable switch, as I'd like to install POE cameras at some point, but don't want to have to run AC to all the camera locations (far easier to run more CAT5e/CAT6). Out of the box this switch worked very well. In fact, it didn't really require any configuration on my part. But now I get full speed internet access at all my wired devices. A lot of people don't realize how slow their old megabit switches/hubs are. Those cap out at 12.5 MB/s (100 ÷ 8 = 12.5). As this is 10x faster (it's a 1 Gbps switch), I can now theoretically top out at 125 MB/s. To test this, I went to speedtest.net both before and after upgrading to the new switch. Prior to installing the new switch, I could only use about 3-4 MB/s of the 100 MB/s I was paying for. After the upgrade, I now get speed tests in excess of 100 MB/s. And to those wondering: why not just use wireless? I do use wireless... for devices that are intended to be used wirelessly. But for devices that are stationary/fixed, why would you want to use up your precious wireless bandwidth? For example: standard Blu-ray disc players that have streaming capabilities, home gaming consoles (even the Nintendo Switch, while docked, can use a wired gigabit ethernet connection; yes you'd be wireless while using it mobile, but if you're playing it on your TV, it can use a hard connection), televisions and AV Receivers. Even Sonos speakers provide an ethernet connection Most of those will never be moved (unless you're literally moving, as in.. using a U-Haul). For those devices, a fixed/wired connection will not only provide better bandwidth, it'll be more reliable and less prone to interruption due to signal interference. Anyways, I've been using this for about a week now, and love the speed and performance this offers. I haven't tested the POE capabilities yet, and may update this review once I do. But in so far as network performance goes, you can't go wrong by getting this switch.
