When it's working, it seems to be good. Full 2Gb per port fabric etc.

But I've found that it seems to hang periodically (every 1-2 months) where no traffic will switch between ports.
unsure if it is an issue with MAC table or some other port issue, but a reboot of the switch fixes it.

Originally I got Amazon to replace the faulty unit, but the replacement is now doing the same thing.

Pain in the arse really. especially if your in the middle of watching a movie or download.
I will have to go for a refund and look for alternative product.

Amazon is selling v2 of this switch and I can confirm that the problem with UPNP traffic is not there anymore, confirmed through actual use of my UPNP devices on the network. The switch looks really well designed, and of very good build quality. I like the way the LEDs look, being exposed on modern furniture, and I must say it works perfectly fine. Speed is as advertised, and power consumption is very efficient, myself being very conscious about how much energy my 24/7 devices use. All in all I must say I'm very satisfied with this switch. I have had no time to actually test the QoS features of this switch, but I did connect the devices according to priority, but having no major bandwidth bottlenecks on my home LAN it's difficult to really attest as to how effective the built-in QoS features are. On the other hand, it's good to have them in place if the traffic needs it.

I bought one of these a year ago. That has worked a dream. I had no hesitation paying a bit more than the cheapest amazon had for my second one. Literally I just plugged it in and the gigabit network was up and running. Checked each device to check speed. Only issue was in had used a cheap network cable for one connection so it was not a gigabit cable. Swapped it out and hey presto it was full speed.

The unit looks solidly built. It doesn't get hot. Would recommend this one.

Case is obviously two timing for a version with more ports. So it is 20% wider than my existing Zyxel 5 port switch. Untidy! However it does have more features and performs faultlessly.

Do not buy if you are planning to use it for connecting TVs, Blu-Ray players and the like to a PC with a media server like Serviio or XBMC installed, and with a view to streaming video or music. This switch blocks media servers. These switches claim to simply pass through data but they do not do so. This is the third I have tried (having tried a Linksys 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch and a TP-Link TL-SG1005D 5-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Desktop Switch) and all have blocked the media servers. The media servers appear via ethernet connection without the switch, they appear via wifi connection and they appear via ethernet/homeplug combo. However, as soon as the switch is connected the media servers disappear.

Excellent product. I have had it running now for about 4 months with no issues. I run my router to it and run my TV, Sky box, PS4 and BluRay player through it. Recommended.

Running a media server and VOIP box through it. Have had no problems with it since plugging it in, not had to reboot it either. Throughput speeds are good.

For the price this was perfect for the job in hand. No setting up required and fast enough to allow full download speeds for smart TV and NAS drive.
