Found 22nd Feb 2013
Seems to be a good price for a metal housed gigabit switch.
Cant find any power usage information, but cant be bad being Zyxel.

Just found that Box is also selling at the same price at their ebay outlet

This is a very good price for a Gigabit Switch. I just do not know about the brand Zyxel ..
Any info and review about this will be very much appreciated

in Amazon RRP: £37.38 currently selling at discounted price of £18.29. So for the current price it is definitely hot ....

Newlink (metal) are a good make, not sure about the 5 port but the 8 port ones I have also have lights that indicate if each line is working in gigabit mode, they are all much the same price range though. I think the Trendnet are all plastic.

I have the 8 port version of this, nice bit of kit

Hot price for a solid 5 port gigabit

Same people selling it for £18.00 on Amazon great reviews

How does this compare with the TP-Link 5-port gigabit switch? Wondering which one one to go for.

Networking Noob question: I have an AirPort Extreme basestation, with an ethernet cable currently running 30m to my PS3, If I put one of these one the end, would that allow me to connect other things as well, without loss of connection speed/ping?

Thanks!

Thanks OP, ordered. We use a lot of Zyxel firewalls, routers, waps etc at work, they're quite decent pieces of kit, and at this price a bargain!

Zyxel are a pretty big player in the networking game, very respectable company, both my current company and my previous company (both telecoms companies) supplied Zyxel routers to our DSL customers.

Great price for this. Have ordered.

Damn no cashback on TCB for eBay purchases anymore. Guess I'll use the vendor's site, thanks.

TP-Link link is a well known good brand. The problem is that I do not think you could get in this price ....

Ordered, been looking for a gig switch for a little while. Cheers OP

Voted hot, bur it would be nice to know if its got a fan and if so, how noisy it is.

Very much doubt if there's a fan with only 5 ports.

There's no fan, but there's no need for one; it doesn't warm up much at all. I've had one of these for a couple of months now and its been 100% reliable thus far

Cheers op and you guys for the info and feedback on the switch, Ordered!!
