Summary: I don't "love it" but its worth a five star rating, LOL. We have had this new switch just over 3 weeks and all is good, it has not missed a beat. I replaced a 8-port TP-Link switch with this one only because we needed more ports. I know it was the full sized "rackmountable" switch when I purchased it but it would be nice if they offered a 16 port with a smaller footprint but it is what it is. I have room for it so the size is not really an huge issue.
Summary: Works perfectly as you would expect. Combines nice features and a solid build quality to offer what appears to be great value for the money. The only question I have is how wall long will it last? But it certainly appears that I would happily buy this product again.

Summary: Had an old Linksys router that did the job. 4 ports and wireless was all I needed to keep all the users satisfied. Then my lil sister and her hubby and family had to move back to the homestead. So One 4 port router had no chance against three xboxes an two PlayStations, three independent PC's and at least 10 wireless devices connecting in. I ordered this switch to solve my issue..
Summary: It's a neat 16-Port Switch. Much better than the TRENDnet one that I had previously. Has all the features I need, LAGG, QoS, VLANs, and is managed, or "Web Smart" as they say. It can be configured through a browser, or through a software Utility. No console here though, but, I don't need it. Runs great, is silent, and is easy to configure. I also have it's little brother, the TP-link TL-SG108E, from the same product family.
Summary: Replaced a "green" 5 port gigabit switch with this. Getting twice the speed from this than I was with my old gigabit switch. Seeing about 60MB\s max transfer, which is near the limit of what my hard drive will do. I could not be more pleased.
