Summary: I hooked this up to my computer, put the Ethernet cord into it, inserted the Ethernet cords for my cameras and other attachments, and it didn't work.. so I was lucky that I found a charger that works with this... which was NOT included... however, that being said it works very well, and was an easy way to accommodate my modem/router that came with only one Ethernet port. I am not technically inclined, so for me, this was a fairly easy solution to my problem...
Summary: Works Good, does what I need. That being said,I did not know until after I bought it. Through put speed varies, It's not FULL Duplex. Description states "up to full duplex data transfer". Which means with one device connected you may get wire speed. With two or more devices it defaults to half duplex. Basically It becomes a single collision domain for multiple devices. Devices will contend to talk. If you are using it for printers it's OK.
Summary: I have purchased multiple orders of this small switch for locations where additional network drops are necessary. Typically these are ideal for user offices where they have multiple PCs or Network Printers that need access to the network. I cannot testify to their long-term quality as the longest I have had one of these units is around 1 year, so far however they hold up to continuous use. I would purchase again.
Summary: I used this item to expand my internet access beteeen my TiVo and Sony mefia streamer that I have set up out back by my hot tub. I ran a single ethernet cable from my router which is located inside my house to my hot tub area which is located outside of the main house but covered and protected from the weather. Item works great.
Summary: I've only had it since the beginning of January 2014 but am very pleased with the price and the performance this little Ethernet switch has displayed, I read the reviews and decided to give it a try, so far so good.
Summary: This product is so easy to use that apparently the manufacturer believes the instructions can be essentially non-existent. I didn't know how to use it and the user guide was no help. Neither was the website or the installation guide I downloaded. There are ports on the switch labeled 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. It's called a 5-port switch. There's an input for your power cord. Guess what? There is nothing labeled as an input for your Ethernet cable from your router. You know why?
Summary: It's a switch and it works. It's also very cheap and I really like the design. The only problem is it's light as a feather. The stiffness of the ethernet cables is keeping it from sitting flat on the desk so I had to tap it down. They could have built the AC adapter into the unit to add some weight to it and save me some space on my power strips.
Summary: Didn't need a high speed switch for an Xbox in another room which would drop connection on occasion much to the chagrin of the house gamers. Ran this in tandem with a Powerline Adapter and now the Xbox no longer drops connection. Seems to be working fine! Plastic, nothing you want to drop or place anything heavy on top of. Instructions are minimal, but switches aren't hard to figure out. Good price! Too bad it wasn't a gigabit one!
