Personally I have a white one of these, but I have replaced them with a Netgear one.
The problem with this product is that it only support frame size up to 7k, but if you need to send big files over the LAN it is recommend to use 10k which it doesn't support.
However as for this price is reasonable but I would recommend to add a few pounds on to get one with 10k frame size supported.

I have a white one of these and it works like a dream. Hot!

i run a single network cable down to my living room to connect my PS3 for movie streaming. My TV has internet features, if i want to use them i have to take the cable out the PS3 and put it in the TV.

I assume this switch would allow me to connect both my PS3 & TV at the same time, and would it still be ok for streaming HD video to PS3?

Thanks in advance, Dave

What speeds are you getting on a Gigabit Lan?

With the white one I am getting anything between 38MB per second and 80MB per secoond. It usually stabilises around 38-40. and 60-80 is usually the peak rate. That is pretty fast, and can transfer 10-15GB files in a matter of minutes.

Fairly sure these can run at jumbo frames. Can't remember what size it is exactly but it's more than 10k

I bought one a couple of weeks ago, it's a great little bit of kit for the price and gives me great speeds between my PCs and HP server, can't fault it :)

Just checked the manual of mine (white version) and it says jumbo frames up to 16KB

The answer is yes to both questions. They don't come with any cables so remember you will need two additional Ethernet cables. Assuming your router has DHCP enabled (if you haven't disabled it, it almost certainly will have) then you should be able to just plug in and go.

Just received one of these (latest version, v4, all black) from Amazon. The old version with the white top (v3) only supports 7k frames. The latest version v4 all black as supplied by Amazon supports 15k frames.

Ordered many thanks!

Also available at Play.com at the same price plus Quidco cashback

Yes it will.

The switch doesn't care about DHCP as it's not managble, virtually every device (TV, PS3,PC) will have an embedded DHCP client, so the comment below is irrelevant in terms of what you are trying to acheive.

Interesting, I have the white one and it's v3.22 and the manual says 16KB, but I guess the only way to know for sure is to test it - perhaps you have and that's how you know? I've never tested. The TP-Link website has nothing about jumbo frames. Have the black one on order.

Just one thing to watch out for, my unit from Amazon arrived with a crappy USA Mains connector on the embedded low voltage transformer. Fortunately, I have a 3 pin UK version of a mains/low voltage adaptor I could use. You can't just use a travel plug adaptor either as the moulding for the transformer gets in the way. I complained and got a pathetic 10% off from Amazon but as I say I had another transformer I could use anyway.

I done a research dissertation into this for my masters and to be honest the performance gain surrounding this issue won’t be noticeable. On a 100MB transfer it was less than .01second difference. This scales in direct proportion to the size of transfer and that was using 64k frame sizes.

there is however a flaw with the way tcp does the error cheaking and this means the larger the frame the more chance errors can slip through. so not the best.
What it does allow for is manufacturers to sell crappier components as the unit has to do less processing since there is less packets per transfer

so dont let the frame size sway you.

at the price its worth a punt but im prepared for it to be crap

Same, maximum is 40. However when I switched to a Netgear one, I am able to get stable 60MB/s with 10k Jumbo frame. (Transferring files between Synology NAS and Computer)

All Netgear products are for SOHO use, so yes, don't expect too much from it.
But I am not agree with your point about the frame size, cus I there is significant difference on speed when comparing my old white TP-Link one and Netgear one.

My mate's got the 8 port version of this (got from the Red Rat Computer fair in Sheffield for about £16 or £20 (+entry fee) (search it for event dates, etc)), it's a banging switch and has waaaaaay moar features than Belkin or D-Link offer on their gigabit switches. HEAT HEAT HEAT HEAT

I had similar, ended up sending it back and getting a replacement. The replacement came with a UK plug and Amazon customer service was exceptional all the way.

I got the white version posted before Xmas, best transfer speed I get is 35 Mbytes/s and that is between my MediaPC and a Revo 600 Nettop. Guess a lot depends on the other components in the network. Overall I am very pleased and certainly recommend one, even if you don't need Gigabit now at this price go for it.

I have two of these,one behind the TV for Xbox, 360, PS3 and TV one in the kids bedroom for , well, the same. PLUG - PLAY - FORGET.

great kit, heat added

before buying off amazon always worth checking on camelcamelcamel.com it can show you the price history for the last 12 months or so - amazon tend to "cycle" their prices and if you can wait for something then it can be worth it. You can also set up alerts to email you when a price drops below your chosen amount.

p.s. nice screen name :-)

Great product - kind of essential these days as everything seems to need a Lan/internet connection to get the most out of it.

I bought one but it makes an annoying high pitch sound so im sending mine back maybe thats why there so cheap...

It sounds like yours is dodgy slinkydonkey. Mine has been working perfectly for over two months now in complete slience. Better to have yours replaced I think.
