Summary: I purchased this switch to install at a second location that I put a wireless point to point bridge to. Usually I prefer the ports in the front of a switch but in this case I was looking for one that had the ports in the rear and this one has done very well so far.
Pros: Cost and size, RJ45 connectors out the back.
Summary: Awesome switch that I highly recommend to anyone that needs a few more ethernet ports.
Pros: VERY small. Fits almost anywhere. The LED indicator lights are on the opposite side of the ports, unlike some other switches in this price range *cough* *cough*-TP Link. Works exactly as it should.
Cons: Only con isn't really a con for me (I don't care) but some people might not like how the power in is on the side of the switch. Works out great for me though due to the position of the switch relative to the power outlet.
Pros: I have had this switch for 6 years now. it just works. I have never had any problems with it. Other than a a few days when I was moving this switch has been connected on my network for the entire 6 years that I have owned it.
Cons: I'm not sure what else to say about it. it just works.
Summary: I bought this switch so I could hook up a desktop, a PlayStation 3, an Xbox 360, and a laptop (which are all located in a room that does not get Wi-Fi) to the router via ethernet cable. This switch allowed me to get the job done well (with the exact amount of ports I need).
Summary: Extending our home network into our detached garage soon, will be ordering another soon.
Pros: The whole unit is a pro, runs nice and cool. Unmanaged switches are just the greatest thing (you know what I mean if you work in IT or have any experiencing with networking) for home networks.. Plug in your input, plug in your outputs, green light means gigabit, orange light means 10/100, put it ...
Cons: Buying a more expensive switch and then finding this is probably the only con I can think of when you realize you wasted money.
Summary: These comment are in "Other thoughts" and not "Cons" because, well, read for yourself. I got the Model 3 version, which only has 1 row of lights. I specifically purchased this brand/model over the others because the model shown is a Model 1, with 3 rows of lights. Disappointed?
Pros: It worked right out of the box, and does the job.
Cons: None. It's a 'switch'. There's not much functionality that can go wrong so long as it works out of the box.
Cons: Unit I received does not match what is pictured. Unit I received has only one row of LED's. Pictured unit has three rows of LED's. Also, the power connection is on the side of the unit which I hate. Pictured unit has power connection on back which makes much more sense.
Cons: stopped working. No power, no lights. Maybe the power supply went bad? Who knows. I bought it because it was the cheapest. In the end, it performed like the cheapest. Next time, buy second cheapest.
