Summary: I wanted to take my single network outlet via an RJ45 cable coming from a network power adaptor and expand it to 3 network cables. I was amazed to see that I could do this for just over £10. Even more amazing was the ease of doing it.
Summary: Just an update on the other reviews mine also shipped in German packaging and initially came with a continental plug and no adaptor. I contact Amazon who shipped me out a complete replacement (Which was opened to check it has the correct plug).
Summary: This product was shipped from Germany and the box contained an EU plug, now I have to find an adaptor or alternative power cable. All unnecessary hassle for a product ordered through Amazon UK to a UK address, and where the product description/specification gave no indication that an EU plug was...
Summary: I needed to extend my home network so that I could work from home. Although my work laptop has wifi, the signal wasn't great in my study - so as I already had an ethernet power adapter to the study, I purchased this switch to add more ports ot the power adapter.
Summary: This is a great little, reasonably priced switch and works like a dream. It doesn't have a bank of bright flashing lights (just low level green ones) which serve no practical purpose other than to irritate. Its a nice shape/ size and best of all it is: supplied in gloss black. I now own 2 of these!
Summary: The switch does what it says on the box, except uk-go shipped me a French unit, albeit with a UK plug adapter, which is not exactly clearly spelled out in the advert. The enclosed CD has all language support on, but the quick start guide, and indeed Le Boite, are (obviously) in French.
Summary: It just works, which is what you want from a switch like this. What else can I say? Plug it in, connect the wires, and your computers will talk to each other (caveat being as long as you've set them up properly!).
