Nice switch; good service

Lantana Al, Amazon
29 December 2014
  • Summary: This is a nice little 5-port gigabit switch. I wish the QoS could be turned off when not needed or wanted though, so minus 1 star for that because many people will probably prefer a switch that works as a normal switch without trying to be "smart" (which can have unwanted side-effects).

Great Value

Andrew D., Newegg
25 June 2014
  • Summary: This has been a phenomenal workhorse for what I paid--but I don't think it's worth more than what I paid, which is much less than the current list price.
  • Pros: Price. Compact. Has done the simple task it was designed to do flawlessly for over a year.
  • Cons: The activity lights bleed into each other, making them virtually indistinguishable.

Works well with the ZyXEL powerline 600 AV2 adapter

JP, Amazon
31 May 2014
  • Summary: I am using this ZyXEL switch in combination with the the new ZyXEL 600 powerline AV2 adapter to give me multiple Ports in two locations. (The 600 series powerline adapter does not currently have a version with built in additional ports so this switch solves the problem) Footprint of this switch is...

Switch doesn't do DLNA or ANY multicast

Donn B., Newegg
4 April 2014
  • Summary: I didn't want to use one the ports on my router just to connect my Blu-Ray player. Dumb me thought that a switch (especially a so called "Media Switch" would pass ALL protocols. How foolish of me.
  • Pros: Small, good throughput
  • Cons: Will not do DLNA or ANY multicast. Since this is listed as a "MEDIA" switch, it doesn't make any sense.

check your serial number

James A., Newegg
24 February 2014
  • Summary: The GS-105S I bought from Newegg caused problems for my Xbox 360 acting as a Windows Media Center PC extender. When I went to the Zyxel I found this list of serial numbers that are known to have problems. http://www.zyxel.com/us/en/products_services/gs_105s.shtml?
  • Pros: Replacement switch works
  • Cons: Original switch didn't work with Xbox 360

Excellent Price/Performance

Adam B., Newegg
21 October 2013
  • Summary: Newegg is excellent, as always.
  • Pros: The Switch features a simple, yet elegant design. It is plastic but feels quite sturdy and features very effective rubber feet. All and all this is a great Unmanaged Gigabit switch for the money.
  • Cons: None.

Not UPnP compatible

Brian E., Newegg
5 September 2013
  • Summary: If you're planning to integrate any UPnP components to your network, look elsewhere. Both my NAS and Homerun HD Prime has had nothing but trouble with these switches. It would never register the NAS/tuners on the network.
  • Pros: Small footprint Solid gigabit transfer speeds
  • Cons: Not UPnP compliant
