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.
Summary: Not much to be disappointed with this product. Simple switch connections, just plug in the unit to AC power, and then connect the LAN cables. Ready to go in seconds. Hard wiring is always superior to Wi-Fi connections. Run one cable to the unit and then connect five devices for an instant network. In my case it's two computers, Vizio Smart TV, PS3, and a printer. Up and running as fast as the cables snapped into place.
Excerpt: The Netgear Prosafe 5 port gigabit switch is a very capable switch for small office/home networks. Netgear has not let me down on their switch products and for the price is much more capable than similar priced switches.
