    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 Works as expected.

    Pros: No problems so far. I get the speeds I was expecting (around 950mbps on a fiber connection).
    Stays cool during use.

    Cons: Was making a buzzing noise the first few days, but either it stopped or I stopped noticing it even at night with everything off. Guess its not too loud, though if you are sensitive you may want to consider a different option.
    Lights are really bright. I had to put some tape over them.

    3 out of 5 eggs The test of a switch is how long it lasts.

    Pros: Works.

    Cons: Didn't include a unicorn.

    Update 5/16/16: one of the ports has gone bad and become erratic. Other ports remain reliable, so now a 4-port switch.

    Bottom Line: The test of a switch is how long it lasts. For whatever reason, I haven't had a 10/100/1000 switch last longer than 3 years, while I have 10/100 switches working great after more than a decade of use. If this one fails, I'll come back and update this review.

    5 out of 5 eggs Always been my favorite cheap switch!

    Pros: Everything really. Its small. It's cheap. Its a gigabit.

    Cons: Only 5 ports, but if you need more then buy a bigger switch!

    Bottom Line: Perfect for my house. Since I only have 4 rooms that need to be wired it works out perfectly. Also this is up in the attic (which is hot!!) and I have had no issues with it at all. If it ever dies, I'll probably just buy another.

    2 out of 5 eggs Was OK, for 5 years

    Pros: While it worked, no issues. The green tech was initially a reason to pick this switch.

    Cons: This past year, internet had been intermittently dropping out- always for a short time- enough to cause programs or streaming to hangup. Had at first suspected Verizon FIOS (everything was replaced)- until I found this switch to be the culprit.

    Bottom Line: Wouldn't recommend this product- I'm also using other switches, just as long, without issues.

    2 out of 5 eggs GREENwash Switch

    Pros: It's cheap.
    Small, kind of cute.

    Cons: An "unmanaged" switch that I need to manage.
    Not as "green" after I got it working!
    Poor 24/7 phone support system.

    Bottom Line: I thought this would be an inexpensive upgrade to Gigabit for a small network. It's just a switch, so just plug it in and it will work, right? Not for me!

    After plugging it in, accessing the Internet from a Windows workstation was so slow that almost no web pages would load. Transferring files from a server as a disaster. I got a dialog saying "Preparing to Copy" and "Discovering Items..." that never succeeded.

    I could not believe this product got such good reviews here, and I was preparing to RMA it. I tried calling the 24/7 phone support, but after going through many menu items and transfers, was left on hold with noisy, distorted icky music until I got sick of it and hung up.

    Then I decided to take a look at the Windows 7 system's network card's settings, and here is how I fixed the problem:

    Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center -> Local Area Connection -> Properties -> [Controller Card] -> Configure -> Advanced

    and then set both "Energy Efficient Ethernet" and "Green Ethernet" to "Disabled". The first one was enough to get it working, and disabling Green Ethernet gave me a 9% increase in transfer rate when copying a 7 GB ISO image.

    It's working now, but I am very unimpressed with the product and what the manufacturer claims about it.

    Since there are so many good reviews, I assume my problem just lack of luck. However, a good switch should work better than this in my opinion.

    If you get one of these switches, I hope you have better luck!

    3 out of 5 eggs Shorts out and reboots

    Pros: Functions at correct speeds as a switch

    Cons: Shorts out when I touch the case. The device would be running, then if I touched it the device would reboot, dropping connections. Maybe it wasn't properly grounded and I needed to do something differently, but I've still never seen that kind of behavior in a switch (nor did it occur in the metal D-Link that I bought when I returned this).

    Bottom Line: Probably fine for most people, but didn't work for me.

    5 out of 5 eggs Very happy

    Pros: Cost and size, RJ45 connectors out the back.

    Cons: None so far.

    Bottom Line: I purchased this switch to install at a second location that I put a wireless point to point bridge to. Usually I prefer the ports in the front of a switch but in this case I was looking for one that had the ports in the rear and this one has done very well so far.

    I only needed a small switch to handle a few devices and this is small and out of the way.

    5 out of 5 eggs Great Switch

    Pros: VERY small. Fits almost anywhere. The LED indicator lights are on the opposite side of the ports, unlike some other switches in this price range *cough* *cough*-TP Link. Works exactly as it should.

    Cons: Only con isn't really a con for me (I don't care) but some people might not like how the power in is on the side of the switch. Works out great for me though due to the position of the switch relative to the power outlet.

    Bottom Line: Awesome switch that I highly recommend to anyone that needs a few more ethernet ports.
