    Needed to add some wired speed as wireless network got too slow as I added devices. Very happy with the speed this has for netflix on TV, apple TV, and giving extra ports for all things in my main TV room.

    I bought this at another online retailer but thought I'd give my 2 cents anyway. I had multiple devices in my entertainment centre some of which connected wirelessly. This included: 1. Sony Android TV 2. PS4 3. XBOX One S 4. DROBO 5N 5. Apple TV 4 6. Sonos Playbar/Sub/2 x Play One's (5.1 setup) 7. 4k DVR/Cable Box (receives signal via ethernet) 8. Router Even though I have gigabit fibre optic internet in my home I noticed that some of the devices such as the Apple TV/Android TV and game consoles didn't perform at their best. They weren't getting the best speeds via a wireless connection. My router didn't have enough ethernet ports to wire everything so I decided to buy this switch. It has dramatically sped up all devices, simplified my setup and freed up the wireless spectrum in the home. The switch itself is a solid piece of metal with some heft to it. It feels like a high quality product. The configuration GUI for the switch is also excellent and simple to use and setup. Each port on the switch can connect at a maximum of 1 Gigabit and each port operates independently meaning even if you connect a device that maxes out at a 100 Megabits it will not slow down other Gigabit enabled devices to the slower speed. All in all the device is worth the premium over the standard 8 port switch. P.S. Make sure to update the firmware when you first set it up and use quality CAT 6 ethernet cables.
