Not a lot you can say about it as it just works! I plugged it in, it worked, the network is a ton faster than when i had it on a 10/100MB hub. The lights at the front are useful, ie they are off if no device is connected, orange for ports operating at 100MB (because the device on the other end of the cable is only 100MB capable) and green for full gigabit connections..Greate value for money, think i paid about £17.00

Style Name: 5 Ports Plastic Switch Verified Purchase
I bought this to replace a 10/100 Netgear switch I use by my TV as I gradually upgrade my home network to wired Gigabit.

Delivery was swift as usual and the item was well packaged. The switch itself is very simple, just plug and play, although this of course means you actually only have 4 ports free to connect equipment to once you have added a connection to your router, but that is fine for my needs.

Unlike the Netgear it replaces the TP-Link switch can be wall mounted which is very handy and helps me keep things behind the TV nice and tidy. As the TP-Link is pretty "cheap and cheerful" it doesn't feel as solid as the Netgear but putting it on a wall keeps it pretty safe from being bashed around. If you have any concerns then consider the more robust metal version.

Overall you really can't go wrong at this price, it's simple and does the job effectively. Recommended.

Update: 11/05/2015

The switch is still going strong and I have amended the review to reflect the comment below on plugging into any port which I wasn't aware of at the time. After about 12 months of use I unplugged the switch briefly while I changed some things around and the plastic top pin on the plug snapped off and is now wedged into the plug socket it was in.

Not a major concern, it is the bottom two pins on the plug that have metal contacts and I have plugged it back in and it works fine, but it does show that it is made to a price point (or I am just clumsy!), I guess.

Style Name: 5 Ports Plastic Switch
I was sufficiently impressed with the ease of setup of this switch that I bought a second one. It is completely plug and play as it auto-configures any of the ports to act as the uplink port. Each port has an LED that glows green if a gigabit device is plugged in, or orange if not. This indicated that the motherboard of one of my PCs was not the version with a gigabit ethernet port despite the fact that the startup splash screen described it as a gigabit motherboard. That was fixed by adding the TP-Link Gigabit card TP-Link 32-bit Gigabit PCI Network Interface Card (TG-3269) Realtek RTL8169SC.

With two of these switches I now have two PCs, upstairs and downstairs, connected to a network media hard drive and copying files at a much higher speed. I cannot comment on the reliability and performance of this switch compared with other makes, but the price from Amazon is unbeatable.

Plugged it in, connected the Ethernet cables, turned it on, it worked. Haven't thought about it since. Exactly how technology should be.

Style Name: 8 Ports Plastic Switch Verified Purchase
Very happy with this, does exactly what it says on the tin. Not sure what you can say about an ethernet switch, unless it stops working, in which case you can complain. But I cannot do that. I installed this a few weeks ago and mounted it to the wall. It is routing packets of data throughout my house and not complaining. It's not waking me up at night, for starters which is more than I can say for the kids. And it's gigabit, so it's faster than connecting things over wifi. I think the ideal way to handle network traffic in a domestic setting is to put as many devices as possible on a wired/ethernet connection (AppleTV, printers, modem/router, etc.) and save the wifi just for mobile devices like iPads and iPhones. Going back to the review of this TP-Link Unmanaged Gigabit Desktop Switch, I'd recommend it for anyone who is looking for an unmanaged gigabit desktop switch. The "desktop" part is a bit of a misnomer, as I've mounted it to the wall (it has mounting holes on the bottom), but then again TP-Link named their product "TL-SG1008D", so I'm assuming they don't have professionals in their "Product Naming" department anyways.

In short, if you need a switch with 8 ports, I recommend you get this one.

Style Name: 5 Ports Plastic Switch
Plugged it in and it just worked. Using on a mixture of GNU linux (ubuntu) and windows home network. Transfer speeds are now faster between networked pc's than 10/100 link provided by my router, which the machines used to be plugged into . I have three machines and an ADSL modem router plugged into the switch to give the pc's access to each other and the internet. No problems so far running for 4 weeks, unit is switched on 24/7. Transfer speed on file copy shown as 47.5MB/s which allowed 3 files totalling 54GB to be copied between two pc's in 19 minutes 9 seconds or 1GB every 21 seconds. On my 100Mb network connection transfer speed was 9.5 MB/s which was 3 files totalling 54GB copied in 1 hour 35 minutes or 1GB every 1 minute 45 seconds. This was also while I was on the internet browsing which didn't effect the transfer rate. So the new switch provides transfers at 5 times the speed on my old network. So in my opinion well worth the just under £14 cost. Note all pc's already had a gigabit ethernet port to attach the gigabit switch to.
