Excerpt: I needed more wired ports than the Apple Airport Extreme has. I plugged this in and it works perfectly. I love the front panel LED lights, one per port, showing different colors for different connection speeds. And the internal transformer means a standard power cord - no wall wart to deal with. Highly recommended.
Summary: I have no way to tell if this is indeed "green" other than looking at the electric bill at the end of every month.
Pros: In case "gigabit for shoestring budgets" and "works right out of the box" don't suffice, there's no wall-wart AC adapter, so you don't have to worry about DC voltage, amperage, polarity, plug tip shape, or some beast of a box covering an adjacent outlet. Small, unobtrusive, quiet. Metal case provides some RF shielding (albeit unintentionally).
Cons: 10Base-T connections are "indicated" by displaying a lit connection LED but no corresponding traffic LED ("off" may mean "on"). Hard to distinguish green from yellow on traffic LEDs (gigabit v. fast ethernet, respectively). LEDs tend to light up adjacent indicator windows (a common failing on many LED panels).
Excerpt: I use this to connect my primary desktop to my NAS storage unit, printers and wifi/router. The other computers in my home network are connected to my wifi either in the air or by wire. A full backup to my NAS used to pull down the entire network. Now everybody has plenty of band width including the TV. Caveat: Wish I had bought a gigabyte router instead of a switch. Everybody expecting internet connectivity still has to go through my 10/100 router.
Pros: This is an excellent switch for the money. First off, I like it better than the TEG-S80G (I have one of these too). This version, the DB version doesn't have a wall wart. It has a real power cord and a real power switch on the back. I really like this setup. Less clutter on the power strip / UPS. Other than that difference, I think it's pretty much the same switch and this version is less $$. Go figure.
Cons: The only con is... is that you have to read the bad reviews. This version should totally out sale the D version IMHO. I like it better and as I said above, I have both versions. for $30 and free shipping??? It's a bargin... metal case, nice and sturdy... jumbo frame support etc.. it's nice.
Summary: Previous gigabit network only through D-links DIR-655. NAS jumbo frame of 7936. PC jumbo frame of 9014. Max transfer was about 29MB/s. After putting the switch between the 2, max transfer has jumped up to 58 MB/s.
Summary: This is a great switch I have listed the pros above I see no cons. However, I wish more vendors of soho gear would make switches with built in power supplies it's time to get rid of the power bricks.
Summary: would have been nice to have a labled uplink port but not a reason to take away an egg. also will work to share internet if you have it attached to a router some people don't seem to understand thats how that works.
Pros: Was Worried With Some Of The Other TrendNet Reviews But Was Very Much Impressed. Straight Out Of The Box It Works Solid, Hefty To. Solid Metal Chassis, built in power inverter was a very nice bonus. Everything in the house is at gigabit now :)
