Brilliant for the price.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TP-Link TL-SG1005D 5-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Desktop Switch (Personal Computers)I bought this Gigabit switch to replace a 10/100 switch that sits behind my TV to give internet connectivity to a Wii, PS3 and a Home Theatre PC. The old switch wasn't really up to the rigours of pushing HD video (particularly Blu-ray ISOs) from my home server to the HTPC.
The housing for the switch doesn't feel solidly constructed - the whole thing is very light and almost brittle feeling - but the way I look at it, once it's sited behind the TV it's not going to receive any rough treatment.
Setup is simple. Plug the switch in - connect the network cable that goes to the rest of the network - connect the network cables that go into the Wii, PS3 and HTPC. Job done.
First thing I did was test the connection by running [...] on the HTPC. It gave the same bandwidth readings as another PC that sits right next to my BT optical modem.
* Easy to install
* Gives full network speeds
I hope you have found this review useful.

Hey, Can you confirm something to me: Can you go online with BOTH items at the same time?
I have one cat5e already running under the floor but I want to connect up the ps3 and PC, such that I can surf the net and play the PS3 at the same time.
Will this work? Or is it literally a "switch" such that you have to "switch" the signal in order to do EITHER the PS3 or PC?
