Summary: Bought on 10/2013 and it's in use everyday with 6 ports in use one hard wired from the modem room to my other room 60Ft away and connected to 5 ports and it's download speed it just is just as fast as the room my modem is in.
Summary: I used this switch at work for over a year. Never had any problems with it. Never had to reboot it. I was spending 9+ hours transferring laser data(125+ GB) of data over a 10/100 switch. After replacing the old switch with this switch my transfer times came down to less than 3 hours.
Summary: I wouldn't run out and look for one of these on an auction site or anywhere else you might find one used. Chances are it's all used up. I replaced mine with a Cisco SG102-24 Gigabit switch and my network came to life again.
A solid Ethernet switch that has high speed communication!

Summary: I have four 8 port switches in my home connected to servers, computers, WIFI Access Points and gaming system. One of them just failed, not this brand, and what a pain. I lost connections to several large computers, a server and a primary WIFI access Point.
Summary: I installed two of these switches to expand my home network, using two of the ports on my Apple router. It was extremely simple. I hooked up various devices (DirectTV DVR, Apple TV, Vizio Smart TV, Vizeo Media Streamer, DVD player, etc.) and everything worked seamlessly.
