    TRENDnet F.T.W.

    Could not have done better. ¤ Large packet buffer, makes transferring large files faster ¤ 10gbps forwarding capacity, means each port has 2gbps, there is no slowdown running all ports at full capacity. ¤ heavy metal housing, tough & stays cool ... Read more

    5 out of 5 eggs Great product for the price

    Pros: - Cheap (price).
    - Metal case.
    - Small.

    Cons: - No dedicated up-link port.

    Bottom Line: I bought this switch so I could hook up a desktop, a PlayStation 3, an Xbox 360, and a laptop (which are all located in a room that does not get Wi-Fi) to the router via ethernet cable. This switch allowed me to get the job done well (with the exact amount of ports I need). Setting up the switch was incredibly simple seeing as all that I had to do was plug in the AC adapter and run an ethernet cable from the switch to the router. It seems pretty sturdy, runs cool with no problems (so far) after a few months of extensive use, and is small enough to sit on a desk without taking up much room at all.

    To address some questions that I had before I purchased this for those who are thinking about purchasing this:
    - You may see people saying that their switch is not the switch displayed in the images (with the 3 rows of lights). This is because that is the exact same switch, but an older version. The newest version (I believe it's version 3(?)) only has one row of lights.
    - The AC adapter plugs into the left (if you are looking at it with the lights facing you) side, which may be a turn off for some, although I felt that it made no difference to me.
    - While it is a 5-port switch, one port must be used as the up-link port, so it's actually a 4-port switch. While I listed this in the cons, I still gave it 5 eggs because, again, it made no difference to me due to the fact that I only needed 4 ports. If you need 5 or more, it would probably be a good idea to look at the 8-port version of this switch.

    5 out of 5 eggs Perfect Switch.

    Pros: The whole unit is a pro, runs nice and cool. Unmanaged switches are just the greatest thing (you know what I mean if you work in IT or have any experiencing with networking) for home networks.. Plug in your input, plug in your outputs, green light means gigabit, orange light means 10/100, put it in the background and forget it exists. I was also shocked at how small this sucker is, I haven't upgraded my home network in so many years so I had expected the unit to be much much larger, this thing is the size of a hand held game boy.

    Cons: Buying a more expensive switch and then finding this is probably the only con I can think of when you realize you wasted money.

    Bottom Line: Extending our home network into our detached garage soon, will be ordering another soon.

    5 out of 5 eggs It works

    Pros: It worked right out of the box, and does the job.

    Cons: None. It's a 'switch'. There's not much functionality that can go wrong so long as it works out of the box.

    Bottom Line: These comment are in "Other thoughts" and not "Cons" because, well, read for yourself.

    I got the Model 3 version, which only has 1 row of lights. I specifically purchased this brand/model over the others because the model shown is a Model 1, with 3 rows of lights. Disappointed? Not really, since I'd read others' reviews before ordering, and researched what they were talking about. I knew I'd probably get a Model 3, although I was hoping for 3 rows of lights. 3 lights per port seemed more "informational" than 1 (and looks cooler late at night in the dark). However, 1 row of lights probably makes it slightly more energy efficient, and delivers sufficient information.

    I am unable to achieve 1,000 Mbps transfer speeds. But perhaps this is due to 'older' hardware. My peak speeds are around 450 Mbps (still much faster than 100Mbps). My computers are SATA II (3 Gbps) instead of SATA III, with motherboards that are getting older (but still quad-core machines). Also, I have WinXP (AMD, Gigabyte mobo) and Ubuntu Linux (pure Intel, mobo and i7 processor) talking to each other via an MS Workgroup. Having messed with all the settings, I strongly suspect that short of upgrading other hardware (and XP OS maybe), my speeds are as good as they would be no matter the brand of switch I bought.

    Don't forget to upgrade your cables, if necessary. I was running the network through my 100Mbps DSL Modem/Router, but with the Linux build and some necessary massive data transfers (a few terabytes worth of data) I needed more network speed. My old cables were Cat 5 (more than enough for 100Mbps). I thought they were Cat 5e, but they were labelled as simply Cat 5, so I wasn't comfortable with them. I would recommend the Rosewill 7 foot Cat 6a cables, that's what I bought as replacements. But maybe (unlikely) they might be the culprit of my less-than-anticipated speeds? I don't know, personally I blame the older hardware (and maybe the XP OS).

    2 out of 5 eggs Does not match picture

    Pros: Seems to work ok..

    Cons: Unit I received does not match what is pictured. Unit I received has only one row of LED's. Pictured unit has three rows of LED's. Also, the power connection is on the side of the unit which I hate. Pictured unit has power connection on back which makes much more sense.

    3 out of 5 eggs worked till it stopped working

    Pros: worked for just about exactly one year.

    Cons: stopped working. No power, no lights. Maybe the power supply went bad? Who knows. I bought it because it was the cheapest.
    In the end, it performed like the cheapest. Next time, buy second cheapest.

    Bottom Line: It was cheap.

    4 out of 5 eggs Different Specs

    Pros: Newest Model.
    Full Gig Throughput

    Cons: None really, but not what I expected

    Bottom Line: Note that the photo and specs on the Newegg page are WRONG for this product. This is the new Green Switch with just 1 row of lights, and its 5v and not 7.5v. I bought this because I have a 7.5v feed in my Home Run. Luckily I have another old one I can use and I'll swap it with this one.

    The new Trendnet switches can handle full gig transfers without choking if there is traffic on the other ports. FTP thoughput is >850Mb/s between 2 MACs. So ultimately Im glad this wasn't the older model.

    5 out of 5 eggs Rock Solid

    Pros: Nearly unbelievable reliability.
    Metal case.

    Cons: None.

    Bottom Line: I own two of these, both v2.0. Purchased and running 24/7 since August and November 2009. Basically they are plug in, play, and forget. Never even the slightest issue with either unit. I have one in our home office and the second is daisy chained to our HTPC, DirecTV, Blu-ray, and a second wireless access point. Throughput between every wired device I can benchmark is great, equal to copying files between HDD's in a single PC. When was the last time you bought an electronic item for around $20 that lasted for years and was so trouble free it was basically invisible?

    5 out of 5 eggs TRENDnet TEG-S50G Unmanaged Gigabit GREENnet Switch

    Pros: Easy plug and play. No set up required. It took all of one minute to disconnect the old one, and plug in the new one.

    Cons: None.

    Bottom Line: Video-streaming, DVD and Gaming are now fast as can be!
