    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 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.

    Seems to be a fairly common price for this, or similar pieces of kit.

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

    Only if it has a DHCP Protocol.

    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.

    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.

    Thanks for this, I've ordered 2. One to sit between the PC's / NAS in my office and another to sit in the lounge for my TV, 360, Blu Ray and Acer Revo :)

    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.
