Summary: Very nice unit. I ordered the metal case version as that's just what I used to. I don't know if the plastic case one is as good or not, but I do know I'm very satisfied with this one. So far its operated outstandingly so only time will tell if it's not. Until then, I would recommend this to anyone looking to replace an outdated switch.
Summary: Not that a switch should have much reason to fail in 3 years but most people have dealt with seemingly short lifespans on networking hardware (and electronics in general). More than 2 years is definitely worth notice. No issues whatsoever with this switch. All ports work, all lights work, power cable is fine, etc. Definitely recommend it.
Summary: I have an 8 port Trendnet GREENnet switch at the center of my home network. I bought it about 3 years ago and it's performed flawlessly. I never had a single issue. When I needed some extra ports at one outlet - this was an easy decision. This is the best combination of price, performance and reliability for my needs.
Summary: I replaced 3 small 100 Mb switches in my home with 1 Gb units. This unit has been working great for about a week now as my Daughter has been acessing the Internet for High School. It was small and easy to mount and I would buy it again!
Summary: These are a great product. Not costly, but very efficient and fast in operation. If your looking for switches that can handle gigabyte Networking. Setup in a minute and speed up your network. Wow!! how can you beat that?
Excerpt: I am using this for networking multiple devices to a single Cat5 wall port that is then wired into a 16-port switch. It worked perfectly. Setup was fast and simple - took only the time needed to plug it in and plug in the Cat5 cables from the computers / devices into it to have it up and working. Very pleased with this, and highly recommended.
