    I've this one which is a good price but it depends on what you need it for.

    I've got the 8 port version and had no problem, used for connecting smart tv, ps3, apple tv and access point for my wireless network.

    Netgear provide good networking equipment, make sure you plan for expansion as when i went for a 5 port.. i had to buy an 8 few months down the line!

    i would recommend the one you have linked.

    Netgear Zyxel/TP-Link/Belkin/Tenda....it's a cheapo unmanaged network switch...Just buy the one that is cheapest.as at this level of networking equipment there is no difference

    ​i would say buy whatever your router supports. if your router supports gigabit Ethernet connection then buy a gigabit switch . if it doesn't kind of a waste but you can plan to future proof . also if you can find out if your devices support gigabit Ethernet . most new devices should do . I don't think the ps4 (original) does due to the lack of download/upload speed compared to other devices I have in my house .

    Why did you go for CAT 7 over CAT 5E/6A or are you running patch leads instead of solid cable runs ?

    It's a real big bend radius on solid cat 7 like 35mm.
