Summary: It just works. I was using my router to send signals to my Blu-Ray player and other networked devices. I often had issues with connecting online with those devices. Not exactly sure how it works but after I plugged this into my router and then all my devices into it; I've had no more connectivity issues. So I reccomend this switch for your home entertainment system.
Summary: Very pleased with this switch. Runs very cool (90 F) even when placed on top of other network components with approx 2" air space between. Having the power supply built into the unit makes it easier to situate in a crowded AV+network space. Replaced a Netgear 5-port which ran at 115F. Excellent packaging and manual. Would highly recommend.
Summary: This is essentially the same model as the TEG-S80G , except it has an internal power supply. One less wall- wart was easily worth the small price premium for me, especially since the metal device looks and feels like it will last until gigabit ethernet becomes obsolete. The five- year warranty suggests longevity as well. The power cable disconnects and the grounded connector is labeled "100-240V, 50/60Hz", nice pluses these days.
Summary: Okay, switches aren't exactly "cutting edge" hardware overall, but I realized a while back that I needed one, and started to shop around. There's no shortage of devices available, but this is the only one I found that "really" meets what I want. What did I want? 1) Small, with a "normal" shape/size (as opposed to funky, bizarrely-shaped objects which cannot actually fit, properly, alongside or in a stack with other devices I may own). 2) Sturdy, and well-shielded.
Summary: I consider these kind of devices generic hardware like network cable, extension cords, and case power supplies. I don't normally review them because of their mundane functions. However what really got my attention to purchase was a home use gig switch without a power cube. Thats right no cube. It plugs directly into the wall with a power cord just like electronic devices used to 25 years ago. Its a big deal to me as it makes installations cleaner and less cluttered.
Summary: This is a great switch I've had mine for over a year the things I like about the switch is that it's fast, runs cool, comes in a metal case, and has a built in power supply. The built in power supply alone should prompt you to buy this switch if you are interested in reducing cable clutter to this day I can't figure out why soho gear comes with power bricks.
Summary: Replaced my old Linksys one. I own 2 and would highy recommended it. *PROS: -build... sturdy metal case -indicator lights. Gig/Mbit/half-dup. I had an issue with two drops in my house the indicator lights helped me diagnose the problem. -fast... I get gig connection -power... saves $$$$ in the long run *CONS: -Doesn't cook bacon *CONCLUSION: -I own 2 and have them daisy-chained. No need for a cross-over cable since it is an Auto-MDIX. Simple and fast...
Summary: At first I was not sure that a cheap switch could do such a good job, (I got mine on sale for around $30). I have had it now for a number of months and have not needed to reset it. Unlike a lot of other switches this one is wall mountable (screws are not included but most standard screws will work) which makes my install look so much better.
Summary: This is a plug-and-play item. I have ethernet cable wall outlet and connet directly to my iMac but wanted wifi for my iPad and my Galaxy cell phone. With this switch I can still have internet to my computer hardwired and wifi for my gadgets. I used a TP-LINK for my wifi. Not the strongest but serve my purpose and the price was certainly good TP-LINK TL-WR702N Wireless N150 Travel Router,Nano Size ,Router/AP/Client/Bridge/Repeater Modes ,150Mpbs, USB Powered. Love it.
Summary: let me know a cat5e cable i was using was NOT pushing gigabit as advertise. very compact design, tiny on off switch on back. ive always like trendnet products and this one is no different. its hooked up as my main switch off my router, and hooked into a cisco 3560 i have to play with. it has rubber feet or you can mount it on a board like most people will do in the basement.
