everytime I read the title as Undamaged...

Anyone owns this? I have a very old TP-LINK SF1005D, but the mains plug is always very very hot. I am always worried that one day it would burn. Do this one have same problem?

I have this switch, works well and the plug doesn't get hot.

not bad

It's not a gigabit switch!!! Which you can get for £9.99 it was posted here last week and it's still on amazon I will try and find it plus it's netgear

not very familiar with this stuff, does it split the signal to all 6 sources? or only one can work at the time as it is switched on??
thank you

Fine product, not had any problems with the two I own in the years I've had them but this can usually be picked up for ~£5.99. That's what I paid many a moon ago. Still a great price for what it is.

Switches are 'smart'. They know where to send the data. All automatic.

But don't waste your time on this. For the small difference, don't get anything ethernet related that isn't gigabit (1000Mbps).

As I said, fine deal for a fine product but do consider putting down a couple more coins for a Gigabit switch - most consumer devices now include Gigabit interfaces and can take advantage of the greater speeds offered - remember that 10/100Mbps in MB is 12.5MB/s and that's just the theoretical maximum before overheads. Is 10MB/s enough in 2014?

+1 on Gigabit Ethernet. Probably would've pulled my hair out if it wasn't for being able to zap files between the computers in my house at 80MB/s~. Setting up Windows Server with DHCP also sorts out "unidentified network" issue on unmanaged switches.

Which seller should I choose?

Cold. Spend just a little more, as noted, and get a Gigabit switch.

What would be the advantage of a gigabit switch for a network, instead of a gigabit wi-fi? I can only think about price...

If by gigabit wifi you mean a gigabit router, chances are that only one of the ethernet ports on it is gigabit, whilst the remaining ones are 10/100Mbps ports. If your router is like that, (eg. BT hub 3) by plugging a gigabit switch into the gigabit port, you will get extra gigabit ports, which are faster than the remaining 10/100Mbps ports built in to the router. If all ports are gigabit on your router and there are enough of them for you to plug all your ethernet devices in, you might not need a switch, but if you are running out of the ports, a gigabit switch will be more useful over a 10/100Mbps thanks to it being faster. And fyi, to fully appreciate gigabit speeds, your router and the device you're plugging in must have gigabit ethernet ports. HTH.

8-port is £7.71 currently

This switch is absolutely atrocious. Make the invested and get a smart managed switch for less than £10 more, it's worth every penny.

Why would a casual home user need a managed switch? Seeing as that's who this product is aimed at... oO

BTW over 700 5* reviews would disagree with your analyis of the product as "absolutely atrocious"

I can see some why some power users might need one but I can't see why a casual user would need one just to split Ethernet.

That's true, regardless I have an awful time with this switch and I upgraded to a managed and I've never looked back since
