    No complaints. I use it to link my Verizon cellular network extender, Xbox One, Denon AV receiver, and "Smart" TV to my cable internet modem. No special setup needed, was all plug and play. This replaced a power-line base Ethernet access point. We were experiencing occaisional (once a week? @@@@@@@ dropouts in Netflix or online gaming with the power line device. It seems to have cleared up with the new Netgear switch. Only regret is there are no spare ports left. Will need to buy an 8 port if anything is added to the system. Don't forget you need a port for the uplink!

    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've 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've 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.
