Summary: Putting the switch down made wrapping the cord around the back kind of awkward and almost didn't even reach the outlet. Still, it is a typical setup, but as I would imagine these switches are near workstations or multiple devices, maybe an exception could be made?
Pros: Solid performance. Couldn't ask for much better.
Cons: Unfortunately, there is an annoying high-pitched noise coming from the power adapter. It isn't quiet either: I have it by my desk, however I can hear the screeching from across the room! If you have good hearing this may bother you. I know the power slot is typically in the back as it should be, ...
Simple Gigabit switch for expanding your home network

Excerpt: I bought this switch to upgrade a 10/100 switch in my network. With computers coming with Gigabit ethernet ports standard these days, my old 10/100 equipment was limiting my network bandwidth.
Summary: I was surprised how quickly I needed additional ports. I would recommend getting an 8 port switch as you will want to hook everything up to this switch that you can because of the speed.
Pros: This switch is fast. Not much else to say about it but its metal and looks very well built
Cons: I wanted to rate this switch a 5 because of how fast it was. However I am getting a very strong low frequency humming or buzzing coming from the power plug. I have tested it in multiple different surge protectors and outlets and its the same for all of them. I'm not sure if they all do this but I...
Pros: I needed a simple switch to connect a network of wired devices to a gigabit internet connection. This one does the job perfectly. Fast and simple installation, totally plug and play. It's even wall (or, in my case, ceiling) mountable.
Summary: So far, these are very nice switches. When I connected my new system, it did not connect at 1000! So I turned on my older system and all was good. I then discovered that my new system had only 4 wires in the connectors! So, this was a great diagnostic tool and I fixed my problem with a new cable!
Pros: Good Price for gb switch with status lights and QoS.
Cons: Well, so far only that the status lights and cables are on the same side!
Summary: Great switch. Grabbed a few of these when they were on a lightning deal. The only thing I don't like about them is that the power cable comes out the opposite side of the ethernet cables. Which means cords come out both sides of it. Great for mounting on a wall, but not great for putting on a shelf.
