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: I have purchased Asus since the 1990s when they only made mobos. Have enjoyed every Asus product that I have purchased. Typing this review on an Asus laptop. Anyway, the switch keeps the find tradition of quality. The green/red connection lights are nice touch.
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!
Summary: Have not had any issues and the price was reasonable. 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.
Summary: Since I have become a fan of Asus hardware lately for my network figured I would add this for my new basement so I could hard wire everything from my home stereo into the switch and then plug that into the router. No issues just plugged in and works.
Summary: I purchased one of these switches 14 months ago and now one of the ports no longer works and a couple of the other ports are beginning to fail. I thought this could happen to any less expensive electronics item, so I just purchased another one to use while the first one is being RMA'd.
