Can't edit my review?

Anonymous, Newegg
21 February 2014
  • Pros: So I wrote a review above and said "It's really the only 8 port Gigabit switch I know of that's being made right now.", when I meant to say "It's really the only *USB POWERED* 8 port Gigabit switch I know of that's being made right now.". I couldn't edit my review, so I'm just writing another one...

USB powerable!

Anonymous, Newegg
16 February 2014
  • Summary: I say, if you just need an unmanaged 8 port gigabit switch, why not go cheap and low power?
  • Pros: I bought two of the 100-base and one of these gigabits. It looks and operates exactly like the others but this is gigabit. It's really the only 8 port Gigabit switch I know of that's being made right now. It takes half an amp or more, depending on how many devices plugged in (use a blue USB power...
  • Cons: Not made in the USA.

  • Summary: Purchased this towards the end of 2011. It has just failed, having run for nearly 3 years. It always ran warm, much more so than the TP-Link switch that I also have (and which is still going, hence I've purchased another to replace this one).

Beautifully made little switcher

Leon Crawley, Amazon
15 April 2012
  • Summary: This product really is a joy to have on the NAS shelf. It takes up very little room and is an elegant white finish, making it very easy to clean. I brought this to mainly link my 1GB NAS to my 1GB PC and feed the rest of my slower 10/100 network components.

Does the job quite well

Simao, Amazon

  • Summary: I had all the ports of my router used and I needed an extra one. I got this switch, connected it to the router using a short cable, using a freed up port in the router and on of the switches ports and then I have got 7 extra ports!

Compact router that works well

Amazon Customer, Amazon
6 January 2012
  • Summary: Technically this is a great little unit. I've replaced a Netgear 10/100 switch with the Edimax and I've not encountered any issues so far. My only grumbles are that I would have preferred to have the indicator lights adjacent to the Ethernet ports rather than on the other side of the box and that...

Great switch, just plug and play!

M. Geere, Amazon
6 November 2011
  • Summary: As you might expect, there is not much to say about a switch. It just works. I plugged everything in and it all connected as expected, zero configuration. Computers with different speed connections all got what they were capable of.

Exelent switch but ....

S. B. Birks "stuartbirks", Amazon
5 July 2011
  • Summary: As other reviewers have said this simply does what is says on the tin. No fuss, no problems, just plug it in and it works. However Amazon supplied mine with a European 2 pin power supply which needs an adaptor and is a right mess.
