Chugging away for over a year with no intervention needed

Summary: I've been very impressed with this little workhorse. Since I've set it up a year ago I haven't had to do anything to it. It just has worked that long. That's the best compliment I can pay it. It doesn't get overly hot either.
Summary: I found out when I went to the Trendnet website that this particular model is obsolete. However, it meets my needs as we wanted to hard wire our PS4 and computers. It has definitely improved our gaming experience having done so. This is very plug and play. You just plug the ethernet cable from your modem/router into any slot in the switch. Then connect everything else by ethernet to the other slots. I like that if a device is off that it conserves the energy.
Summary: I bought one of these a while back when I ran out of ports on my router and wanted to swap a few things on my network from wireless connections to wired. It was extremely easy to set up. Just plug it in, pop in a few ethernet cables, and everything was going. It's been running for months now and it's been so trouble-free that I sometimes forget that I even have it.
Summary: This is the second TRENDnet gigabit switch I have purchased and used in the last few years. I previously purchased the TRENDnet 16-Port Unmanaged Gigabit GREENnet Desktop Metal Housing Switch, TEG-S16DG when I was upgrading my homes LAN to a gigabit system--new modem, new router, and new switch.
Summary: Added Ethernet physical connections for my home network for PCs, printers Network-attached storage, and takes some of the power load off the modem. No lad or overhead so from a Ethernet perspective it invisible.
Summary: Please do not bother with this switch. It failed me in just a few days. I've used TRENDnet products in the past and they seem to be average at best. Gigabit switches are getting cheaper so do your homework.
Summary: This switch offers excellent price, function, and quality. I love this company and I love their products. I have several of these to manage my in home network with rich media throughout the home.
