Sturdy metal cased 1 Gigabit unmanaged network switch
Easy to install and upgrade an older 100Mbps network to a 1Gbps network by directly replacing network switches. I plugged the network switches in and everything just worked. I purchased 3 of these network switches.
The network switch is metal cased and I personally think it is better than plastic cased products because metal is more robust. I guess the case is grey to signify 1Gpbs.
Notice that only 1 LED is present above each RJ45 network port. It seems that the link state and data flow state have been combined into a single LED (usually 2 separate LEDs would provide that information on other products). But it is OK having 1 LED; off = no connection, on = link established, blinking = data flowing (implies link established).
The mains power adapter is much smaller than older netgear mains power adapters. I guess it is a switch-mode PSU.
Ease of use
Value for money
