    This switch works like it should. I also noticed that it and the included power supply run cold even with high network traffic. That implies that it does not use much power - a good thing. By comparison, the 100Mbit switch that I replaced with this one ran quite warm, as did the power supply.

    This was easy to connect to my router and provide additional ports for hardwired computers in the house. It provided the increased capacity so that all machines can enjoy the same download and upload speeds.

    I got a new stereo and need a router switch with more inputs than I already had. So I replace a Netgear with 5 imputs with one with 8. Plug and play

    One of the easiest solutions to get super fast ethernet in a media center instead of using a wifi signal. It's as simple as plug and play, no set up required.
