Personally I'd pay the extra couple of quid and get the metal cased one:

Great Price for an 8 port
Heat @merb0786
Super price. Always worth paying the extra for more ports if and when you want to expand the setup.
What is the difference between the plastic case ones and the metallic ones? Just the case? Or is there any other reason?

If your talking about the 8 port fast speed white case one. The difference is this one is faster as its a gibabit speed.
No it isnt a POE switch. They are usually a good bit dearer.

Thinking of upgrading to UniF POE over something like this.

Any reason why?
Will last significantly longer due to much better cooling plus much greater mechanical protection.

Fair enough, was just a thought, mine a 4 port metal and comes with a lifetime warranty
Ah fair enough. Networking question, my home office internet is currently enabled through home plugs but obviously that’s only one port. Do I just connect the home plug into port 1 of this switch leaving me the other 7 free to plug and play with other devices such as laptop etc?
Thanks for the post

Yes that will work.
Do speeds reduce compared to direct ethernet to router?

They shouldn't as it's gigabit

I read this comment on a previous deal but got the metal one in full price a month ago.
I don't regret it, it's brilliant.
I wonder what the difference is between

amazon.co.uk/TP-…6BY

at £16

and


amazon.co.uk/TL-…WN6


at £17.40 - both TPLink but model number slightly different and the 1.40 extra gives lifetime warranty (for what thats actually worth)....if there is any other physical/feature difference

Yes - should work absolutely fine like that. Speeds you get will obviously depend upon what you are getting out of your powerline connection though.

I used to have the same setup until I refurbed the house and ran cat6 cabling throughout.
Avoid the switches that come in a plastic case guys, they overheat which obviously has an impact on the internal components, even if they state their using newer greener power saving technology! Have a box in the corner of our repair suite full of the things! Not sure if they still produce the TP-LINK TL-SG1005D switch, that's a cracking switch, was only about £10-15 and came in a nice metal case with activity lights on the front and the power and network cable ports both on the rear so that when the power and network cables were all connected it wouldn't pull the unit from both sides and look untidy like the one in the topic does. Awesome little switch if you can find one, and never had a single return of that model back in my repair suite unlike some brands and models I could mention.41425221-lHXcc.jpg

This may seem a niche issue but I have one of these and couldn't get my Philips Hue Bridge to work with it. It's recommended that the bridge is connected to the main router, but can't see why it wouldn't work through this. Strangely, it still connects to the cloud and that works, albeit barely. No idea why.

2nd one is aimed at business user audience.

Ummmm, because its a personal choice maybe...
Must… not… buy…

It's a valid question to be fair, why pay more if you don't need to!
But as I stated the metal one for a few quid more will most likely out live you whereas the plastic one is more likely to die after a few years, especially if it's being located somewhere where it gets hot (lofts) and you intend to pull a lot of data through it.
Thanks for posting. We have added this to the Highlights section

I would only bother if you're going to get more POE devices or need to do VLANs/port specific config. £109 is quite a painful amount for a switch on a home network.
Was going to grab a couple of these, to snap up a bargain for an upcoming home network set-up in a new house...

Looking at price history however this is a saving of ~65p on the standard price (been £14.50 since January). 65p saving is better than a kick in the teeth, for sure, but seems a lot of heat for not a lot of deal!

Usually around £17.99 not £14.50.

This item has been around £14 mark since January (it was close to £18 for a few days and the price went down to around £14 again) - see for yourself: Price History
Also, similar to what other members have said, spend £2 more and buy one with a metal case!

I’ve had one for almost a year and it’s rock solid... nothing wrong with it.... hence the heat. You should post the other one you’re referring to and get some heat too.
OK Funny story. I got this switch at this price a while back, it's great - gave heat to this deal as it is a good deal. Read the comments about the metal cased one, so thought, for a couple more quids, why not! Ordered, delivered today. Went to return the original one (Prime), and the process has refunded me (to my account) with no need to return the item. Now I am not suggesting for y'all to do horrible stuff like that to Amazon, but just thought you'd be interested.
Is there any that you can plug one Ethernet into and turn it into five ports? Can use power line as on a different power line to my router
