Can't fault the price for 10/100MB switch. But as gigabit network card is popular nowadays on laptop and NAS, it is recommended to consider a Gigabit version for high transfer speed, e.g. TL-SG1005D

Not bad, all I use the cheap one for though is to connect up my xbox, ps3, media player and it does the job brilliantly!

I have ordered, but unfortunately says 1-3 months delivery estimate which is a shame, heat added nonetheless

it splits one internet connection from a modem/router into up to 5 ones and shares/manages the connection based on which devices are on/what each device needs. Very useful if you wanted to run a long cable to a lounge where you had xbox,wii,internet tv, pc etc as you'd only need one cable

You use it to network computer's or compatible devices together so they can transfer data to and from each other. It doesn't require a router to work although it's likely to be used for sharing the internet via a router if the router doesn't have enough ports built in. Routers often have at least a 4 port switch built into them.

If you're wondering what a router is, you plug it into your phone line to provide wireless or wired (via a port) internet to your home.

How do you lose a hub/switch?

It's not like you carry it around with you :)

Indeed - at least the Gigabit switch gives you close to normal performance when accessing files on another PC or NAS, while "Fast" Ethernet will be painfully slow, slower even than USB2.

And actually I have seen better prices - I paid 6 quid for a similar switch and two 10m Cat 5e (Gigabit!) cables. Cheap yes - but deal questionable.

Mine arrived last week. Works an absolute treat!

I unplugged it when having a change around. The wife probably threw it away :(

Expired?

This is perfectly fine for connection PS3, Xbox, TV and media players to your router - which is exactly what mine does. No need for gigabit for that.

good price, although if you have an old router lying around just use that as it should do the same job (my old tiscali one does)

I tried doing that with my old router/modem (and also thought about using it as a wireless repeater), but gave up and bought the gigabyte version of this. No messing around just plug it in and go. Yep good Price
