    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.

    I connected this switch to one of the internet ports on my ISP router so I could connect a network HP LaserJet printer and NAS on the other side of the room. Once everything was connected, they worked perfectly without any need for special setups. My ISP provides up to 100 mbps speeds and I could not detect any degradation in speed through the switch.

    With this handy device, I'm able to hook 4 devices to the router via 1 Ethernet cable (of course, cables are needed to hook the devices up to this switch). It's so much easier than having to swap one Ethernet cable around, and is faster than WiFi.

    I use it for connecting to additional devices in another room at home. It is smaller than I expect which means it only takes a tiny space on my desk. It works right away out of the box, no brainer and the price is very good when it is on sale with $5 off at Best Buy.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I bought this bc my router/modem only has 2 Ethernet ports. It’s light, compact, and does what it’s suppose too. Be kind of nice if an Ethernet cable came with it.

    Inexpensive and practical may lower network speed

    An inexpensive and practical device for increasing the number of ethernet connections. However it might have slowed down the network speed somewhat even without adding more devices to the network.

    Great little device - works as expected. The only reason for a 4 star rating is the lack of led lights indication port speed. Just a simple LED stating activity.

    I split a connection from the router at my home to get me more hard wired connections at my desk. Doesn't lose speed and everything is working flawlessly.

    My old switch started acting up so I replaced it with a t-base 10 I had laying around. That is a slow LAN connection so this one is to replace my t-base 10 switch.

    Upgraded our lights to the Philips Hue smart lights. I was out of ports and picked this up. Does the job just fine and handles up to a gig speed.
