    "It's ok...Great TV...Compact & Quick....I don't think it's a problem with the switch though, as research showed it's a common issue and when connected after both (connecting router directly into the modem and the switch after the router) the problem was resolved."

    "Great buy...Worth it!...I like the the power port and ethernet ports are all in the BACK, this makes it nice sitting on the desk, the throughput of this switch is great and I actually can tell a difference with my network performance after installing this....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."
