Customer Reviews:

  • Works great
    Allows 7 Computers to share the same connection. This is the main backbone for my college house, directly connected to it are a wireless access point, xbox 360, playstation3, 2-laptops that suck with wireless and PC setup as a media server streaming to all computers on the network. Excellent work with no noticeable lag. Wish I would have bought a second one when circuit city was going out of business because it works great for setting up a full house to run wired internet. Yes, I know wireless is wonderful but you can't beat the security, stability, and currently faster speeds of wired. Have unit attached to DI 604 Router, also that is another great feature, no need to know about uplink ports as it can automatically detect making it perfect for novices.
    CONS:
    It isn't a gigabit ethernet which is what things are drifting towards, but if you don't require bandwidth intensive transfers between computers on your network it perfect for internet sharing as well as file....more info
  • Very good
    Works as expected, had no problems with it and I've been using it non-stop (always plugged in).

  • Plug-nPlay
    After trying a generic switch from Best Buy that refused to work properly I ordered this item from Amazon. Simply took it out of the box and plugged it in and it worked flawlessly. I had previously installed the Network Magic software that is included. My system recognized the switch and there has been no problems since.

    This is how a Plug-n-Play component is puposed to work....more info
  • workhorse
    Mine has been working for over a year ... does not even get warm. And the plug/adapter is not bulky. Ok, it's not very complicated, but hey, it just WORKS ... and looks like it will last forever....more info
  • Works Great
    I have two of these. Connected to one is my HD TiVo, Xbox 360, Wii (wired), and HD-DVD player. This switch, in turn, is connected to a 2nd switch of the same make via a long (50-foot or so), cheap Cat5e cable. Connected to the 2nd switch is two computers, another TiVo, and my VoIP telephone. This switch is then connected to my Verizion FiOS router. Connections to all devices are just as fast as you'd expect and I get my full 15mbps on the WAN side (which I better, seeing as how they're 100Mbps switches). The bang for the buck is very good for this switch, IMO....more info
  • Very Good Product
    Works great for me and easy to install. I have 2 Directv HD-DVRs, Clover security DVR, Slingbox, Desktop PC all connected and no problems. Don't spend more for a switch at Best Buy or Circuit City, this one will work fine for you....more info
