Summary: Ran out of ports on ISP unit (downstairs) so added this unit to expand (upstairs). This unit allowed me to add additional wireless AP to support a better signal for my phone and tablet (private WiFi) and to have a wired connection for PC, Xbox and smart TV for faster data streaming.
NO SOFTWARE SET-UP, PLUG AND PLAY NOT PLUG AND PRAY.

Summary: 5.5 STARS IF THE LIGHTS WERE ON THE FRONT. RESERVE ONE PORT FOR INTERNET CONNECTION, THEN CONNECT UP TO FOUR COMPUTERS. ON BOOT-UP THIS SWITCH WORKS AS DESCRIBED, QUICK NETWORK CONNECTION ALLOWS PRIVATE NETWORK WITHOUT MODEM OR BOX CONNECTED, NO POSSIBILITY OF HACKING.
Summary: By plug and play they mean that you plug it in and have to play around with it until you realize it is simply broken. The instructions, if you can call them that, are in EngRish. Why in the hell the chinese cannot hire a decent translator is beyond my ken. There are like a billion of them..
Summary: This is one of the best investments that I have made. Didn't think it would be all that great when I bought it because of the price. I was wrong on that one. I bought this about 6 months ago and plugged it in and wired everything in and haven't really yhought about it since then.
Summary: This switch did not last long. It died just out of the return/ warranty period. I am a Network Engineer and also have a debug background. This thing just quit powering up. It wasn't like I had packet loss or anything like that. It just died.
Summary: Works great, at a great price. I don't mind buying refurbished; to me it means someone actually inspected the item (and fixed whatever defect would have come my way if I'd been the original buyer).
