Summary: I bought this switch to expand the wired network capability of my D-Link wireless router. I needed additional ports to connect the two remote access points (D-Link routers configured as AP), a hard drive to store CCTV video and my Crestron home automation controller and touchscreen.

Cons: The only problem I have is with the fact that it has a slight slope or slant on the top making it more difficult to place something else on it. I knew this when buying it though it isn't a big deal breaker for me especially for the price.
Summary: After running two long ethernet cables from my brother's across my house to the living room to connect to my Playstation 3, I was able establish a hardwired connection and finally download and play without a problem.
