Summary: I bought this switch to be able to connect a PC, my Smart TV and My Hopper to the internet. I have several computers all in different rooms that are all hardwired to my router. I didn't want to have run 3 more lines from router to the living room so I used the PC cable that was already there and...
Pros: Cheap. Reliable. Does what it is supposed to. What more could you ask for?
Summary: I have multiple loads on my system. From the modem I have two routers and I hooked up the ethernet cables from the routers to the Netgear unit. It was a simple matter of just plugging them in and thus far, I have not dropped a signal from the modem-routers. It is small, compact and out of sight.
Summary: Nice, small box. Wall mounts with a couple of screws.
Pros: I recently set up a home classroom with four desktop computers. The existing patch cables were not long enough to reach the router, so I went with this solution rather than buying a bundle of 30' patch cables and I'm glad I did. The network has been rock solid and seems more stable and responsive...
Pros: It just works, no fuss, no muss. Connected to my Netgear router, connected my Sony STR-DN1020 AVR and my Samsung UN46D6000 TV to this device. Both units have internet access, streams audio and video from a router connected HTPC to both AVR and TV as it should without issue.
Summary: Oh and its black, so looks smooth and matches most of my hardware!
Pros: Love this switch. Simple, does its job. Small, easy to install, color coded for those who don't read instructions. Really like the lights on the front and cords plugging into the back, my previous switch had the lights and cords on the same side.
Summary: Perfect for a home entertainment unit. A single line to your media center gives you the ports where you need them.
Pros: Easy to install, Color coded ports easy to understand and makes connections to the appropriate devices simple. It also looks good in my media center. Does exactly what it says and fits my need in this area.
