Pros

Cons

  • Upon moving, we ended up getting ATT U-verse - the wifi router they supply has 2 ports consumed by the TV equipment - so with only 2 ports left it was impossible to connect my desktop, printer and NAS - so a switch made sense - just so happened I had $10 in reward credits so it was a great price - basically got a new unit for the cost of a refurb or used switch on ebay.ChemE75

Over 6 months now and it has been rock solid - no issues. These simple unmanaged switches are all pretty basic - as long as it works, its great. I see no issues and added a laptop docking station to it recently - no wifi can compete with gig speed ethernet so I use wired LAN as much as is feasible.

    This is a perfect price for this many ports. For an unmanaged device this is a very good product. It is a lot smaller and more compact than I was expecting. Even though I read in other reviews it was small, was still expecting bigger, so it is perfect. And for being so cheap it is very sharp looking. I'm proud to have it added to the rest of my high tech components instead of hiding it. I always like to find a flaw so the only flaw I've found is the indicator lights are not visible head-on. You must be above the device to detect the lights. This has no impact because I do not need to see the lights, I know it's working!

    Since all 4 ports on my router got consumed, I ordered this from Best Buy as they had the lowest price. Ever since I bought, it is working without any problems. Some people complained about high pitch sound and I did notice it initially, now I don't hear anymore. Even when I heard, it didn't bother me as it is placed too far in a corner. The picture shown was for older model of the product but what I received was a new model :).

    So I was looking for something with lots of ports and low cost. This product does the trick. No issues with it at all, LED's are not SUPER BRIGHT which doesn't matter to me anyway because all my network equipment is in a closet. The only weird thing is that it does a slight humming sound (high pitched). It doesn't stop the unit from operating or cause any bad effects so I'm not worried about it. I would definitely recommend and buy this again if needed.

    This switch was so easy to setup. Just plug it in, connect your ethernet cables, and you're good to go. Having the Gigabit speed is essential if your home or office has high speed broadband at speeds of 100MB or more. Our old switches were only 10/100MB speed and it slowed down network traffic in our office. Upgrading to this switch brought us up to speed with our ISP.

    I was just looking for a switch that would essentially extend my router's high speed ports - this allows me to wire my AV system instead of using WIFI - WIFI does cause a reduction in speed regardless of distance and it also introduces the chance of interference - this allows me to get the highest internet speeds to my av equipment
