I'm really impressed with the user friendly interface, the "status" led's on the front and the compact size. This switch does exactly what it says, works quickly #I don't have a way to test transfer speeds, but I've noticed a difference, especially vs. my wireless network. I noticed when I started plugging in different wires to different devices that there were green numbers and yellow numbers. I wasn't able to determine exactly what the issue was until I switched some wires around and noticed the "yellow/green" colors followed the respective wire. After a brief google search I found out a yellow indicator means the speed is 10/100 and the green indicator is /1000, the obvious reason I purchased this switch. I've since used it to find out what cables I have that are gigabit speed vs 10/100 and thrown those out. I'm currently using cable internet, into a netgear router/switch WNDR 3700 v2 for wireless PS3, x2 WII, x2 Apple TV, x3 laptops, magic jack, PC & iMac, x3 wireless IP Cameras and an additional PS3, XBox and additional wired IP Camera and Buffalo 6tb NAS . You can see we had a lot of use from the router/switch. I noticed a huge lag while trying to use the Apple TVs netflix and itunes so I opted to introduce this switch to lessen the wireless demand. Now I have moved the switch so it is directly wired into the router, just on the opposite side of the house via CAT6 and it directly serves the NAS, PC & IMac, the PS3, XBox. The router/switch supports the new Smart TV IP Camera and Magic Jack. One of our main issues was we stream a lot of itunes video movies/tv shows to the apple TVs from the PC. Now the PC is direct to the Switch -> Router/Switch -> Wireless to Apple TVs. We are getting another switch this weekend to piggyback off the existing router/switch to tether into the apple TVs and smart tv which has to currently be manually connected after removing the magic jack. Overall, I'm impressed.
