Summary: I purchased the ASUS GX-1081, because it had very good reviews on Amazon. Was very surprised, that it was shipped from the UK. The plugs it came with DO NOT WORK on American electrical outlets - both plugs are for the European market.
Summary: When you need a fast, inexpensive and reliable switch, Asus can deliver. From my experience, I think it is less than one in a hundred Asus devices that malfunctioned out of the box. Good price, good quality.
I had the 5 port, but I needed 7 so this one is perfect.

Summary: I had the ASUS 5-port... with VIP port connected to an ASUS 8-port... with VIP port, and then added some more internet devices to my video setup. I use the VIP port between 2 of these 8-ports now so all 14 devices get full bandwidth. I like the VIP port a lot, 5 stars!

Good value, I like how ASUS has evolved from a component/motherboard company into a product company with some really nice networking gear. I would like to try a new router they get good reviews. THIs is a switch and I've owned it couple of months so far works fine. Recommended.

Summary: I built an ASUS power system to fly my PMDG 737NGX airplane on - and was impressed by the build quality and performance of the ASUS P8P67 motherboard- so when it came time to buy a gigabit switch, I chose ASUS and AMAZON once again. Pros: 1- Easy to set up (don't forget to buy the Gigabit cables from Amazon as well) 2- Be sure your hardware has GIGABIT connections (e.g.
