    Perfect for home theater

    This was exactly what I was looking for. Low cost. Easy installation. I am running a gigabit network but needed to expand to my home theater (home theater is downstairs while router is upstairs). My media library is mostly comprised of hd movies so streaming via wifi was basically not working. Running the cable the ethernet cable was not an issue but wanted to get a good gigabit hub that would be mostly plug and play. This thing works great (plug it up, attach ethernet cable, restart router and attach devices). Video streaming is now seamless and console gaming has improved as well. For $20, this was probably the best decision I've made regarding my equipment. There's a number of more expensive devices on the market but at then end of the day, you simply want you device to function well.

    Magic Little Device

    Posted
    Wichmann

    After updating to a new Comcast Router, having only 2 Ethernet ports, I was short 2 more. One was needed for a WD Network HDD, and I tried unsuccessful to utilize an older (but working) Netgear 4-port switch I had laying around. Other devices connected to the switch worked (a high speed printer HP Officejet Pro X476dw), but not the WD Network HDD. Then I bought the TP-LINK TL-SG1005D 5-port Gigabit Ethernet switch...and magic happened: I Just replaced the old switch with the new one, without any need for configurations etc...and the WD HDD was recognized right away and now works perfectly. This TP-LINK TL-SG1005D switch is very inexpensive and saved me a lot of trouble. I highly recommend this switch.

    Needed a simple gigabit switch for my workshop to hook up into home network and didn't want to break the bank in doing so. This small, lightweight and very functional switch fit the bill. I get nice up/down speeds between my components, it's compact enough to tuck out of the way and has performed (over the last month) better than expected for the device that it is. If you want a simple, quick, efficient and reliable gigabit hookup for you small home network - can't go wrong with this unit I believe.

    I needed more ports, due to the fact that the ISP router only gives 4 ports to begin with, in order to ensure my home entertainment center was going to cut it. So not only was I able to broaden the amount of devices that needed network connectivity, but, we are now able to enjoy said devices and the entertainment associate with our home theater. Plug and play is ALWAYS nice! Glad this product gave me the flexibility needed.

    Had an Ethernet cable running through garage to connect a distant computer to router. Needed Ethernet also for Vonage in office behind garage wall. Split Ethernet in 2 with this splitter. Inexpensive and does the job. Actually ran 2 cables to an Ethernet wall outlet so there is now a spare in the office. Does not appear to be any loss of signal.

    I am extremely pleased with this switch and I can hardly believe it! I just plugged the dang thing in, rebooted my equipment, and everything worked. Simple as that! I could not be happier. I definitely recommend this switch, especially considering the price point for a gigabit switch!

    My boss has a room full of bad Dell laptops that he was forced to buy and they suck when using wireless and active domain directory. These switches solved my problem by higher internet speeds and walking around a bad wireless driver that I can't find a different one with out replacing every wireless card.

    The energy-efficient design is great just make sure the devises you are connecting with have their own power source. My wifi router didn't and draws on the ethernet wire for power. It wouldn't power up and there is no over ride for the energy-efficient on-off.

    Purchased for purposes of adding more ports to modem as "wifi" continually "lagged" re: speed, even though wifi extenders in residence. This did the job (quick and simple) and made the 15 minutes (crawling in crawl space to wire) more than worthwhile

    I was looking for a switch with a small footprint and easy to set up. Read many positive reviews, which were well deserved. The TP-Link worked out great for me to extend ethernet up into interior walls via putting it in the basement then connecting it to my upstairs router.

    Bought this to add some ports for my ever increasing need for more. Has worked well so far. Easy set up. I can't speak as to the specs because I don't possess the knowledge /expertise but it has kept up with everything I do.

    I needed to install an additional desktop in an area that only had one Network port, so this was an inexpensive, yet effective way to split the signal to both computers.

    Compact, black plastic case. This product is energy saving, purports to save power up to 85%. Wish the power adapter were labeled in such a way that I would not make the mistake of pairing it up with another TP-Link device.

    The switch was just a needed add-on since the ISP provided router ONLY has 4 LAN ports. Love the price and quick delivery. Works for what I needed for...additional ports!

    This switch works as expected. Just plug it in, plug in your network cables and you're all set. I bought this to hook up a linux machine that refused to work with my wireless usb adapter.

    I live in an old cinder block house and wifi just wasn't happening. I purchased this for my home entertainment room/office so my gaming systems and PC could all be wired. This provides a fast and easy connection.

    Needed a switch to avoid moving a single cable back and forth from 2 different devices. This did the trick perfectly. Just plugged everything in and it was up and running without any issues.
