Great little switch

Mark T., Newegg

  • Summary: If you know ahead of time what you are purchasing (like I did) then I would think no one would have any issue with this switch. The QOS can be a PRO for some people and a CON for others.
  • Pros: This switch is very reliable and easy to use and great value. It has built in QOS (Quality of Service) which can be very handy if you have a child running online gaming and sucking down all your bandwidth, or if you use VOIP.
  • Cons: The QOS can also be a con if you do not want it because you cannot disable it.

  • Summary: I got this to match with my WNDR3700v3. Have it connected to my Workstation and future peripherals. It looks nice, and really isn't much more you can ask from it.
  • Pros: It does it's job. Works without any fuss.
  • Cons: Wish there was a four port version. Not sure why the ports needs a QoS where you can't adjust it.

  • 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.

Isn't geared for desktops

Eric P., Newegg

  • Summary: I use Wake On Lan for all my desktops. Took a lot of frustration and troubleshooting before I narrowed it down to the switch. To save energy it powers down ports that are not in use preventing magic packets from getting to the desktop. In any event, that was a failure on my part.
  • Pros: -Free with purchase of RT-N66U (amazing router) -Bandwidth management -Minimal, easily hidden
  • Cons: -Not great if you are only hooking up desktops (see comments)

  • Pros: Paid $22 for the switch so it's worth 4 stars. The gigabit ports seem to handle large file transfers well.
  • Cons: None at the moment

Exactly what we needed.

ROBERT J MCBRIDE, Amazon

  • Summary: I was tired of the constant drops by our wireless router to our entertainment devices. With this switch I just ran Cat5e to extend my gigabit network (only Ps3 actually has gigabit port) to our home theatre components which include : Xbox 360, Ps3, Apple TV, Denon AVR 1613, and a Sony bluray player...

Works well.

Jason S., Newegg

  • Pros: Does what it says.
  • Cons: I wish they'd clarify that 1 of the ports is for the "in-cable" so you can actually only plug-in 4 other connections.
