Great Form Factor, Simple Operation and Works Great

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: We've had this switch for about 2 years now. We have a Netgear WNDR3700 router with a gigabit wired connection wired to the switch. The switch is connected to a Dish 722K satellite box, 3D Blu-ray, Roku 2 XS and Onkyo 708 receiver. Having the gigabit connection, the Roku produces HD quality on every station we watch that has it. Netflix is crystal clear and perfect, never had a problem at all.
Summary: I purchased two of these switches. This is the AV model versus the standard switch of the same model number offered from Netgear. The difference is primarily the auto-QoS (Quality of Service) configuration that is built into the AV model. 100-mbit switches are cheap and handle device and Internet connectivity without problem.
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!
Summary: Purchased this with a Netgear WNDR3700 router & Cat-7 cable to end wireless Netflix streaming video problems & it works great. The combo lets me select the High Priority outlet for our TV & remaining ports in relation to speed required. Ended the wireless problems we were having due to a combination of poor service from Netflix & router being located in basement & TV on 1st floor.
Summary: Super fast Switch! Like most folks who have fairly new home theater equipment, I realized that while Wi-Fi is a nice convenience, it definitely does not have the speed an Ethernet port has. Unless I want to pay through the wazoo to get additional wiring done I needed another solution. Using the existing port I attached this little plug and play switch and voila! My 2 ports are now six (would have been nice to have one extra port on the switch, but a minor gripe).
