Summary: I've always bought Cisco, DLink, or Netgear switches. But I just needed a couple of ports and didn't feel like spending $50 to $100 just to be able to connect a networked printer to the network.
Summary: This my second Trendnet Switch, after using Trendnet TE 100 8 ports for a few years. Wanted to setup a backup system if my wireless router fail, so I purchase this small switch. Both work great in the 5 years I've the 8 ports, I've never had any problems.
Summary: This ethernet switch is just what I needed and only $10 shipped to my door!! All I had to do was plug it in and plug the ethernet cable from internet to one port and the one from my computer to another. No set up, no drivers to load, no password. Couldn't be any easier.
Summary: My dorm room only has one Ethernet jack, so I bought this hoping it would work to duplicate the signal so that I could get internet to both my desktop and laptop without having to constantly switch cables. It worked great!
Summary: This product is great! I use this in my college dorm. I am only provided with 1 ethernet jack at my desk. Like most people, I have multiple devices that use an ethernet connection: apple tv, networked printer, and a laptop. This device takes up minimal space and does exactly what I need it to do.
Summary: Perfect for my needs. I have a single ethernet cable that I needed to split to give internet access to 2 computers - one Mac, one PC. Couldn't be easier. Just plug this into an electric outlet, put in ethernet cable and then connector cables going out to computers and it works perfectly.
Summary: Bought it Oct 2011. Started malfunctioning April 2012. Crud! Maybe bad luck, maybe bad QC by trendnet. UPDATE: Sorry, turns out there was a bad device on the switch. So now I'm not sure about the trendnet - I'll have to retest ... stay tuned.
