Summary: Works as I would expect it to. I have not attempted to evaluate the power saving portion but the network connections are flawless for my home use. I have most ports populated and have had no issues.
Summary: I bought this because my Apple TV was stuttering and I like the idea of a VIP port. The Apple TV still stutters once in a while, but I'm sure it's not because of this switch. My Tivo, Apple TV, and my laptop all well work with this. I'm very pleased.
Summary: I am using this for 2 primary purposes. 1) i have mulitple ip addys from isp, and this switch allows me to give vip internet access to a particular device, while giving 2 wireless routers each their own ips. More switch than what i needed (only using 3 ports) but it was only 3$ more expensive than the 5 port at the time.
Summary: I read the other reviews before purchasing this switch, and agree that it's great value for the money. I've got a fairly involved (wired & wireless) home network with 2 teen boys playing games while I'm doing actual work, so I was happy to get a switch with the priority port on it. I'll probably order another one since it's a great value.
