Fast but Hot

Anthony J. Palmer, Amazon
12 January 2012
  • Summary: Only a few days in, so far so good. Gigabit is AMAZINGLY faster than 100mb. Our setup requires transferring 4GB-15GB multiple times per week from one PC to another...I can not tell you how much time this thing saves.

Works as advertised

DDA, Amazon
16 January 2008
  • Summary: I have been using the SMC switch for over a year now with no problems. Others that I know recommended it to me, and they have not had problems for a much longer time than a year. I just purchased a second one to put into my home entertainment rack to feed into my ethernet enabled AV devices.

Works Well, Very Fast, Very Hot

Atari, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been using SMC for years and the one thing about them is they are are trouble free. The EZ 10/100/1000 Switch is no exception. Just plug it in and it works. You might say that's to be expected from a switch but not so.

Customer support is atrocious

A. Foda, Amazon
19 June 2006
  • Summary: The title speaks for itself. Watch out for their lifetime limited warranty, it's good for about a year and a half. I guess that must be the lifetime of some kind of horsefly or something. Avoid SMC at any expense.

A solid performer

Film lover, Amazon
25 February 2006
  • Summary: I'm a big fan of SMC products and this one is no exception. For a little more money than their competitors they give you a more solid, more capable device. In this case, it is support for jumbo frames that sets them apart.
