10/100 lols.

Welcome to 1997.

Been this price for a while to be fair only reason i know is because I've been on the lookout for one but am looking a gigabit type.

Heat added though as it's an ok price for what it is.

Same price in Curry's too if that helps anyone.

I bought one of these a few years ago. this is a good price I've had no issues with it. It even works well for xbox one screen share thing with my pc on highest quality

Perfectly adequate for normal internet usage. Obviously not great for transferring large files regularly across the network but not many people need that at home. Good price.

Who uses a switch these days for 'normal internet usage'?

People who want a reliable LAN connection to multiple devices. Particularly useful when paired with a homeplug for TV, console, PC, streaming box, etc.

Just invest in a decent router.

Spending money on switches and homeplugs is a waste.

if you're totally ok with 100mbps, fine, but personally the [url=NETGEAR GS205-100UKS 5 Port Gigabit Ethernet Desktop Switch amazon.co.uk/dp/…ear Gigabit[/url] one for £10 is better value for money

if you need to hook up a Sky box, blue ray, smart TV and media PC then you might want to use a switch like this. Using WiFi might work for some but wired is far more reliable and likeky to provide better speeds for many.

Not true I'm afraid. Physical connections are more reliable, especially for streaming and gaming. This is based on experience.

Experience of using crappy routers?
I've had my fair share of crappy routers (mostly the Sky ones, actually) but with using my own, no issues.

I've had more issues using these crappy plugs.

To each their own. Clearly the fact that GCHQ use physical connections means nothing. More secure, faster and more reliable. I actually use a mix of both.

And now you're comparing a corporation layout to a home layout, in which case, they wouldn't be using those craapy wall plugs.

I doubt you transfer even a fraction compared to them.

​I have Cat6 leading to every room in the house with many gigabit switches. Heck, I have a Cat6 to an outside shed where I have an additional 802.11ac AP. For everything that's stationary, I use Cat6. I only use wifi for my tablet and phone.
