The switch despite its small size (3.7 x 4.1 x 1.1 in) deliveres plug and play gigabit network. No drivers, no settings, just connect the power and the ethernet cables and you are ready to go. it has been working for a couple of days, connecting 2 gigabit computers, a 100mbit computer and a 100mbit router and it is only slightly warm to the touch.
The blue metal case is more durable than the plastic one on GS605 and keeps it cooler due to the properties of metal vs plastic.
If you need a simple, small, fast and sturdy switch....this one will do the job just fine.
