Summary: I realize I simply should have gotten a refund or credit or something, but at approximately 20 bucks, it wasn't worth the hassle. So I'll just keep it, because as I said, it works. Nominally. And you never know when another one of these babies might come in handy for someone.
Pros: It works, nominally speaking.
Cons: Throughput is noticeably slower than that of the older model gigabit switch; I bought this one to replace that one, because the technology is supposedly newer and better. It's newer.
Cons: Not sure what is going on with this switch, I have had it for a couple of days with 3 computers plugged in, only one was ever running. Never got the chance to test with multiple computers on. While working all day via CITRIX the switch just stopped working. Power light would be on but all connect...
Summary: das netzteil hat bei mir extrem gefiept, hab ihn zurückgehen lassen. der stromverbrauch war mit ~2,2-2,7watt bei 7angeschlossenen verbrauchern hervorragend. aber die ohren meines hundes und meine werden mir den austausch danken.
