Summary: For those of you who might not know, this device essentially splits the internet/network connection coming out of your wall so you can put run it to several devices at the same time. I was having slow network performance and after suffering with it for too long determined that the problem was a defective desktop switch, so I replaced it with this one and everything is now working swimmingly.
Summary: The QoS works well and the priority schema for the ports is a good idea and is well suited for use in home entertainment systems. There's nothing to do but plug it in and power it up, and if your router has QoS then you'll want to coordinate the two. There's virtually no heat coming out of this and the lights are subdued which is a plus compared to some switches that second as a flashlight.
Summary: I know tat I have one of the fastest routers on the market the 802.11AC NetgearR6200 running wireless. but wasn't getting the speeds that was paying for. So I wanted to make my home network wired instead. So I got the Netgear- GS605AV and now I reach the speeds that I'm suppose to get. It has been working fine since I got it. I would recommend this to anyone that needs to simplify their network.
Summary: I was looking for a generic network switch and came across this one. Although it is marketed as a home theater and network hub, it will work well for many applications. Note that unlike some generic switches, this one assigns 3 levels of priority based on the port, so make sure that this is what you want. For my application, this is not an issue and actually helpful (easier than using Quality of Service - QOS - rules).
Great network addition for internet video streaming.

Summary: This item helps completely my network for online streaming. I have a complete Netgear network and have two of these units to complete it. One I use for extra connections in my computer center. Another one is connected in another room and connects my blueray player and smart big screen. I use the external switch because it is so much faster that the wifi connection. Just plug and play - Great!
