Easy to use and does its job but...
on 7 August 2017
While my initial review of this was pretty positive (see below) now that I've been using it for a while I've found that it's actually become a bit of a bottleneck in my network as I basically ran my room off of it thinking it would be ok as only one or two devices are on at any one time but I was wrong and it actually throttled my speeds after a while so I would recommend getting a managed switch instead (Netgear still a very good brand so went with their prosafe 'built for business' model) I immediately noticed a dramatic difference after switching
Very Quick to set up and easy to use, does what it says on the tin so to speak, a single ethernet from the downstairs router and 4 ethernets going around my room, great little solution for expanding a wired internet network, would personally prefer if the lights were spaced out more so they're directly across from the port they correspond to, the power light is opposite ethernet 1 and the light for ethernet 5 is opposite ethernet 4, hardly important ofcourse but just something that I noticed and think it would be better if they were opposite their corresponding port
