'tis beautiful. Don't need one, but have some heat. A metal TP might be better, but this looks lovely.

Ah go on qualify your remark! Why might a metal TP be better?

It's worth noting that both Netgear & TPlink companies are about 23 years old, Netgear is an American company and TPlink is a Chinese company. The difference between the hardware (assuming an 8 port TPlink in a similar price range) is down to the firmware and as these are unmanged switches there would probably be an insignificant performance difference between them...
How is this with Virgin Media? Looking at something to use with Hub 3 for connection to PS4, Xbox, Sky, Apple TV, BT Mesh system and TV. Will this work ok or do I need a managed version?

This would work fine. You don't need a managed one. A managed one allows you to prioritise which device gets most juice etc. But I would just keep it simple. This would work fine.

I'm pretty sure he / she / they (...2019) is simply refering to the improved shielding capabilities of a metal cased switch, therefore reducing the potential incidence of interference from other electrical devices in close proximity. So not necessarily a comment on the benefits of TP-Link over Netgear.

The problem with that theory is to benefit from any inferred shielding properties you need to use shielded cables otherwise it defeats the point of having a shielded case...

I doubt there would be a use case for a manged switch in a home set up. The Virgin Media router is management enough for most...
Is this powered? Could it be used to power my poe camera?

Metal because of durability. That flap and cable management ‘teeth’ seem a bit of a novelty. I only mentioned TP as a personal preference.

I also used the word ‘might’ in my comment, not ‘probably’ and not ‘definitely’.

I could understand the durability issue if a switch was something you routinely carry in a laptop bag....?
Even cheaper now... 3p saving
Another penny off. Have the time of your life.
