 quick and easy

Just used this to replace an old 10MB hub. Connect cables, plug power in, sorted. No set up, couldn't be easier. Auto detects everything, uplink, cable type, etc.

 A rather good product!

This item is the cheapest price for an 8-port Unmanaged Ethernet Switch but the product itself is very good.

It's low-profile yet aesthetically pleasing design lends well to being put amongst your other electronics, in my case it sits on a TV stand with my Powerline Adaptor, XBox, PS3, BT Vision, PS2 and TV and it blends in well.

From that I'd recommend this product for tidying up your home network, small LAN parties or as a small office desktop switch (or local area switch).

This is as opposed to the much more expensive switches of the same spec that are designed to be in a cabinet in an office, so you get a less nice looking product for a higher price.

To be honest you shouldn't need more than this at home, eight ports at 100MB/s (Most ethernet adaptors from games consoles, televisions and computers are the 100MBs standard instead of 1GBs/1000MBs) is more than enough for simultaneous video streaming and gaming without humanly detectable slowdown. And for Thirteen pounds it's a bargain.

Cons: The only contra-points I can think of are; That you don't have link-state lights at the back (Not that you need them for home computing), You can't dim the general LED's (Activity only) at the front and I've not been able to discern it's power consumption because I want to leave this item on 24/7.
