      Works for less

      It's a 5 port name brand gigabit switch for fair price. Other switches are more expensive which doesn't seem worth it. Connected speed shows gigabit and connection tested good so far (about 2 weeks). The color is white but I prefer black or silver, but it's out of sight behind some things on the desk so not a big deal. It's replacing a 100Mb D-Link switch that went bad after a year or two (not a long time!) in service (and which I got for around the same price as this netgear one). So I will see how the more popular name brand does against it.

      At the recommendation of two Information Technology professionals (and friends) who have made site visits to my home - this was enough "switch" for my intended use - simply to add Ethernet connections and distribute internet service in a room with only one Ethernet port. Simple to install and hide small unit and now enjoying fast and reliable connection to Sony Smart TV, TiVo , TiVo Stream and Sonos speaker - all offer wifi, but wired is best.

      A simple, effective, and inexpensive switch

      Connect your Ethernet devices to this switch, connect the switch to your modem/router, plug in the power, and you're good to go. Couldn't be any simpler. One star off for the large "wall wart" AC adapter and lack of an Ethernet cable in the box.

      No programming or set up needed. Connect the cables, plug in the power supply, and your done. I used it to split the signal from my AT&T modem to supply both my Netgear Nighthawk Wi-Fi router and the U-verse TV controller. It works as well as having two separate T5 network cables.

      Needed another switch, this SOHO (small office home office) unmanaged switch is awesome. No setup, just plug n play. very small, tiny, takes up no space, easily mountable to any surface (with velcro). This 5 port switch also has a very low power consumption as well. Perfect to add to or expand an existing network.

      Gigabit, Small, Portable, easy to conciel is exactly what I wanted. I use this to extend and split a direct Cat-6 into my office for 2 computers and an xbox. Highly supportive of Netgear products and I will continue to do so. Very well built. non-managed, just plug and play and it works!

      Plugged it in; plugged in some devices; and everything worked with zero hassle. I used it to split a digital TV signal from the internet signal. I sent the internet signal to my router and the TV signal to the TV and everything works great.
