Theres not alot to say about this switch. | Its 16GBPS or 2GBPS X 8 ports (havnt tested this as my home or camp network is not that intensive). | What i can tell you is every port on it performs as if they were all directly connected. | No disconnects, random packet loss, and i have not needed to reset it via the power plug since i started using it. | The wifi router i use for my phone and wireless devices away from home also has not needed to be rebooted since plugged in to the switch (a 2-3 day occourance before hand) which is a huge plus. | I bought the metal model for $30 which is great for what it does. Considering i take this on the road with me so i have no worries of it breaking in my luggage. | Stays cool. Works. The lights are a little bright but only show through on the front so you can just angle it away from your bed/couch so its non intrusive. | It picks up your in connection almost instantly and it just works, the out connections are almost as fast. I may buy another to permanantly install at home to replace 5 port switch i paid the same amount for. | Also: the box does include slots on the back to wall mount the switch the biggest con to the device is the power cable is very short (3ft). But hey ethernet cables are as long as you want em to be!
