Excerpt: This was a great solution to my problem. I had to connect my DVR and ROKU to the internet but only had one Ethernet outlet, this switch was the answer. I still have three spare ports for future expansion.
Excerpt: I bought the product because I needed to extend my ethernet to several other items in my home office. This is a great product - just a rectangular box, no fancy, schmancy styling. Easy to mount and install. Good size. feels solid. And best of all it does just what I need. I agree that a front dc power inlet would be a useful improvement but the product is great the way it is.
Excerpt: Having the high speed switch replace the old 10/100 has been a good move for us. As we replaced our older PC's and Lap tops the new units have the plumbing for the speed but were being limited by the switches. we started with the larger main units 30+ then replaced the smaller hub/switches around the buildings.
Excerpt: Although it's rated at 1GB, I've never seen throughput that even approaches that speed. It's still small and fast and easily concealed, which were my main requirements. Just slap it in place, plug in the power and ethernet cables, and ignore it for the next half a dozen years. I have three of these around the house, in various node clusters, serving computers, televisions, game consoles, VOIP phones, and even a Raspberry Pi.
