Speed? Construction? features ?
Cheers. Great price for a gigabit switch which I just happen to need.
Gigabit judiciously omitted from deal title. Digest that slowly, There'll be no more heat until a gigabit wanders across.
Can someone advise please, I don't know if they do but would it be possible to have one of these connected to a power line plug via a normal Ethernet cable, then plug into it a PS4, Xbox 1, PC and TV and have them all attached to the internet and working alongside each other. Thanks

Yes, this is precisely what they are designed to do.

Yes. I have powerlines connected to a switch, and devices such as tablet, android box, memory stick (in the router) and PC connected on the same network such that files can be transferred between devices.

No special set up required (I just use ES File Manager on my android devices to facilitate the file exchanges and streaming for where the PC doesn't detect the android devices.

Does anyone know how to get Windows 10 to display connected android devices on the Windows Explorer?
Thanks, saved me a fiver as was looking to buy one this week.
Gigabit and reliable, even over less than stellar cabling. Very much plug in and forget, works a treat without bugs for months on end. Happy with things like IPTV, Steam streaming, NVidia Gamestream, etc. Crazy price.

Its an ethernet gigabit switch, what features do you expect?
Is this mains powered? Does a non-mains powered version even exist does anyone know?
Do you need a gigabit router to use this switch with gigabit speeds? I have a non gigabit router, and I'm wondering that if I add this to it, those devices that are connected to the switch, can they communicate with gigabit speed, or they are bottlenecked by the non gigabit router?

Devices connected to the switch will be at Gigabit speeds with other devices connected to the switch.
But not with any devices connected directly to your router

Thank you for the clarification!
Will do nicely (8 port @ £10.99) for my 6 x D-Link IP Cam set up in tortoise/rabbit shed at end of garden! Thanks OP!

@SizzlestickYes, this is precisely what they are designed to do.



So it acts like my virgin router, I input the internet into it from the power plug and it gives the PS4, xbox etc a secure internet line.

On the back it shows 5 number inputs, unlike my router it doesn't suggest which is the internet input. Which is why I am asking again really to make sure. I don't want to play files I want each to have an internet connection. Thanks
This answered my question!

I just used an old Talktalk router last night and set it up to do this. Not sure if I followed the website instructions properly with all the IP addresses and subnet mask chat, but the 2 devices are working perfectly. Saved myself any money! Although, I'm sure this has advantages.
gigabit rules
what features do you expect?
mANY and varied ...
whats the difference between this switch ans the 50 pound one?


do tthey need to be powered?
Can these be used at the end of a powerline adapter or do they have to be connected directly to your router?

Yes, they can go be connected via a powerline adapter and don't need to be connected directly to the router.
Don't know what for but I feel like I need one of these in my life!
