Summary: These days more and more home cinema equipment is becoming internet enabled; often TVs and other equipment comes with ethernet ports but no built-in wireless. So you end up needing several ethernet connections. This thing did the trick. It's tiny so can be easily hid away. Works fantastically well, no set up needed. Connected one of the ports to my Homeplug (Powerline adapter), used three other ports to connect to my TV, Blu-ray player and console.
Summary: This must be one of the smallest switches of its type. I was most impressed with it, and the fact that the ports are all auto-negotiating. My only complaint, as other reviewers have said is the provision of an EU plug. This was easily solved at the local branch of Wilkinsons for £4.98.
Summary: Having already using one of these, Thought i would Get one for my Daughter, as she had similar multi-linkage issues. The one recieved was the same but, came with a EU type plug. I know plug conversion kits are available, but they bring out the wall connection to over 5 inches protruding...! What I am saying is... Yes to the Edimax switch... But ensure Amazon suply it with a UK 3 pin connection..
Summary: I needed a switch to extend my wired network. I have always liked Edimax products, and this one did not disappoint. Very small and unobtrusive, it did exactly what it was supposed to do. Up and running in two minutes, most of which was opening the box. Highly recommended. However, a second order for two of these both came with European 2 pin plugs.
Summary: This hub is beautifully small, which as I am using it to connect my Sony TV and AV to the internet, it's important that it is not too obtrusive. It does what it says on the box. An extra delight is the small on/off switch on the lead really useful for hub reboots. Highly recommend this little gem!!

Summary: These days we may have more than one PC in a room. This ethernet switch was the cheapest most reliable. Very easy to install. Very tiny, comparable footprint to a deck of playing cards. No need for cross over cable. Just plug the ethernet cords in and the PCs will detect a network. Works well with multi-pc games. Has power saving features when not in use. No speed loss with all 5 ports used for first person shooter games.
