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.

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)
