Misleading pictures and annoying squealing

Kevin C., Newegg
13 October 2015
  • Summary: I would've returned it, but after all fees and shipping it comes out even worse than just keeping it. I would not recommend this switch at all, the description misleads from what you're actually getting and if the coils are whining on the power pack when it's brand new I have serious concerns of how...
  • Pros: Worked fine, was fairly priced, would've served the purpose I needed for it well if not for some issues which I'll get to.
  • Cons: First off, the packaging and the pictured unit looked nothing like what I saw on Newegg. I expected a rectangular switch box with status lights on the front, but what I received was a switch with this exact same model number that now has a glossy black top, is very rounded and has status lights o...

It's OK

Vincent M., Newegg
2 April 2015
  • Summary: I own a Rosewill RC-415 5 port switch, and it has served me well for several years now. As my network has grown, I now need 1 more port (for now). The reviews for the TP-Link seemed to indicate this unit was OK for the money.
  • Pros: On the surface it seems to work OK, But it lacks the LED speed indicators that other units have. As far as my computers go, I do not see any problems. However... see Other Thoughts:
  • Cons: Does not work well with a Satellite TV box

Noisy As Hell

Little Green Viper, Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: Works fine. Good speed. Good power. The fan, however, gives my surveillance DVR some stiff competition. VERY noisy for such a small unit. It's also not very small, for what it does. I ended up getting a D-Link to replace it, and I'm keeping this as a spare.

Inexpensive, but lacks basic features

Judah R., Newegg
23 April 2014
  • Summary: You get what you pay for. I'll add this to the outer fringes of my network so as to minimize the link speed troubleshooting issue above.
  • Pros: - The lowest $/port of any GigE switch out there - Easy setup
  • Cons: - For all the features claimed, it lacks LED link speed indication: the LED glow the same color regardless of link speed, which bodes poorly for troubleshooting in the future. Most other switches have LEDs that glow green for GigE links and amber/orange for slower links. For this reason, I have n...

  • Excerpt: Если бы не свист БП, нареканий к аппарату не было бы никаких.
  • Pros: Работает нормально. Скорость копирования большого файла между двумя компами ~70MB/s. Зависаний не замечено.
  • Cons: Блок питания свистит, как дешёвая зарядка для телефона. Купил две штуки, у обоих так. Свист не громкий, для офиса пойдёт. Дома ночью слышно.

Kompakt, offenkundig energiesparend, einfachste Intallation, leider nach gut 2 Jahren defekt

15 June 2014
  • Summary: ... siehe Überschrift: an sich sehr problemloses Gerät mit einfachster Plug&Play-Installation. Ich hatte alle 8 Anschlüsse belegt, funktionierte problemlos > dafür eigentlich 5 Sterne für ein so günstiges Gerät. Leider nach gut 2 Jahren heute ausgefallen: versorgt nur noch max.

arbeitet ok - aber langsam

RF, Amazon

  • Summary: Das Gerät arbeitet zufriedenstallend. Aber für die Ankooplung von TV und ande Media eher nicht geeignet. Im meinem Fall hat es den Webaufbau und die Tastaturgeschwindigkeit (Funk) deutlich verlangsamt.
