Excerpt: I am using this to connect multiple computers and network devices in a business office. It works perfectly, and took only as much time as required to plug it in and plug in the Cat5 cables to get it set up and running. Can't ask for any more than that!
Summary: I have it hooked up as a main switch between servers. It worked ok for about 3 months, then all servers were disconnected. The switch looks like there's nothing wrong. Power cycled, and everything worked for about 5 minutes before quitting again. Do not use if you require high reliability. Might be ok for home use. Or if you have a spare switch in case this one starts acting up.
Summary: It is a switch. Plug and Play. It either works or not. This one works and I have not touched it since I powered it up the first time. I like the TRENDnet stuff because they always work right out of the box with no problems and always at a good price.
Summary: I have used several trendnet switches for myself and for my clients. All of them have performed without a problem. Never had any connection problem as someone had mentioned. I have configured these switches as single switch nets and multi switch nets, these switches always connected and have performed without any problem.
Excerpt: After a recent renovation, I ran cat-5e to every room in the house, in hope of having less traffic through the wireless and a more secure environment. It just made sense at that point to upgrade to GigE, and this product was perfect for the project, given the extra number of connections.
Summary: I had a 8 port D-link switch that I was using. I only needed one more port so ordered this switch with 16 ports. My main device does not see the this switch. I can connect to my 8 port D-link and jumper to the TRENDnet and communicate, but cannot communicate direct with the TRENDnet swtich. Now I am using two switches just so I can have one more port.
