Summary: This LevelOne GSW-0807 8-port gigabit switch is silent and fast...all at an excellent price...assuming that it has a long life-span. The vendor delivered the product promptly and in excellent condition. Top quality all around. Yes, I'd recommend this product and vender.
Summary: Looks good, but does not have the solid feel I had expected. The wall mount screws goes on the underside of the unit, which is impractical since mounting it that way the port status lights are not visible.
Summary: I bought 2 of these switches so that I could get my family room devices (Blu Ray player, TV, HT Receiver, Media Player) all cookin' on a hard-wired lan. Even though none of these devices are capable of 1GB it makes no sense to invest in 100mb switches. I installed one switch upstairs coming off the router in my office (FIOS router with a built-in 100mb switch) , and cascaded the second switch about 60' away downstairs into the family room.
Pros: Looks nice and works great. Set up on TV stand behind TV. Use all ports. Game, stream and download, sometimes heavily all at once, with no issues. Set it and forget it. Just clean dust from it every so often.
Cons: Made from plastic. Aluminum/metal would have been nice, especially in this color scheme.
Summary: Probably would buy again as others have had good luck with this including a friend of mine. Hoping the next one is solid!
Pros: -Cheap -Low power usage -Small amount of heat -Small footprint
Cons: Unfortunately, I got a DOA device which I'm currently RMA'ing through Newegg now. I can't rate this otherwise for quality due to this but the device never worked from the get-go. Plugged it in to multiple routers/switches/computers, multiple cables and multiple outlets without any luck on getting the interfaces to connect. I don't believe a 1 star is fair due to being a DOA so 2 will be the judgement here.
