Summary: This port is fantastic. Runs at the same speed compared to a direct line to my computer. I basically haven't had to touch it since the day I set it up, and that is a wonderful thing. The fact that it saves me money on my electric bill (albeit only a small amount given how much it would use otherwise) is a nice additional aspect of this port. Highly recommended for anyone who needs to split an ethernet cable or router several ways.
Summary: I use this at work where the internet is an after thought, not the prime source of business income. As a result, we don't have the gigabit speeds and barely have enough connections to go around. WiFi? Forget it. So when I need some specialized apps on my personal laptop, I just plug this in and get to work with the extra connection. I bought the metal model because it resides at the bottom of a drawer quite often.
Summary: I've used two of these to split Ethernet into 3-5 separate devices. Once is in our office and serves 4 computer/laptop connections. The other is behind an entertainment center and serves a variety of A/V devices (Bluray, PS4, AppleTV, etc). This little device does require a power source, but it works great, is small, and is inexpensive.
Summary: I have been using this port for several months and it has met all my expectations. It has performed reliably and I haven't noticed any performance issues with the equipment that is plugged into it.
Summary: Wanted to get rid of my hub and change over to a switch. This TrendNet carried out the job perfectly and i was surprised at the small size and what little space it took up. Also like how I was able to order a 5 port switch as we didn't need a switch with way more ports than what was necessary.
Summary: I simply love this ethernet switch. I purchased this switch for my Entertainment center to give Ethernet to my Xbox, Cable Box, PS3, & PS4. All of the systems I have connected to this switch have a great signal throughout the whole center. This switch can easily carry 1 gbps of data through, and split it easily. I love the metal housing and construction of this product, which makes it durable, sturdy, and reliable.
