Summary: I've only had it for a week or so, but works as described. 5 auto-sensing ports. So, technically you get 4 additional ports in instead of five. However, it works for me and you can't beat that price.

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.
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: Needed to split an incoming ISP signal to two different computers. Bought this accidentally thinking it was a router. But in the end, it's working like one: We have two computers internet connected (hard-wire, not wireless) to this box and it's working seamlessly. So great outcome for the price.
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.
