5 out of 5 eggsBought 3

Pros: Cheap

Cons: No wall mounting screws

Other Thoughts: I install the switch vertically. Would have liked to receive hardware for that. Otherwise, these things are perfect - bought 3 a while ago, and just got around to installing and expaning my home network. All work just fine.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly what it says on the tin

Pros: Gigabit with low power consumption and relatively inexpensive. Compact. I've been using it to do drive image based backups, moving hundreds of gigs of data, and I'm getting impressive speeds. Hard to complain

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I've only had it a month, so we'll have to see how it works in the long run.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as Expected, as it should

Pros: Gigabit is gigabit from 1 hub/switch to another. This switch performs as well as any other I have had, at a better price point.. I have a major name blue metal 5 port hub in my computer room. It feeds my smart TV, Bluray player and Tivo with an open guest port.
Had to do the same thing in my Living room setup with this switch. Works flawlessly and setup free as it should be.
Feeds Smart TV, Tivo and Bluray player with a guest hardwired connection.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Used this in my Living room setup feeding my smart TV, Bluray player and Tivo with a guest connection.
This was based on
Both units are fed with a 200 Mbs power line networking. It's plenty fast for streaming HD video.

1 out of 5 eggs5 port switch

Pros: easiest way to expand a lan

Cons: please stop claiming it's a 5 port expander. it would be better to be honest and state it's a 4 port expander. 4 devices in and 1 line out to the router.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: I have bought 2 of these: one 8 port and a second 5 port. Both work beautifully so far. Reliable, no setup required. I do reboot my entire network infrastructure maybe once/month for preventive maintenance, but so far the switches haven't required a reboot for failure.

All that said I'm not running a media server - yet - so the load is probably relatively moderate compared to some home networks.

The 8 port switch has 5 PCs, an HP 8600 printer and a bridge to the 5 port switch. One of the 5 PCs is my son's gaming PC and is always on connected to gaming sites/his friends. Subject of a separate rant, but I digress. Another PC is running Windows Home Server, newly installed, and is functioning as a file and backup server. I'm loading it up with music, our family photos, collected videos, etc., so that will add some significant load soon. Also has a Mediasonic RAID array with 3x1GB HDDs in a RAID-5 config (1.8TB usable) attached to the WHS PC, with about 1TB of various content.

The 5 port switch has the bridge to the 8 port switch, a connection to a TP-LINK powerline adapter that is connected via 2 other powerline adapters to a TP-LINK wireless router functioning as an access point and a PC at the other end of the house. It's also connected to a Comcast modem/wireless router.

The wireless router and access point support 3 laptops, an iPad 3, 2 iPhone 5s and a Samsung Galaxy S3 at various times. Sometimes my wife's laptop is plugged in at the other end of the house via the powerline adapter.

So there is a fair amount of data running around at peak times.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Got it on sale - even better!

5 out of 5 eggsGreen claims seem legit

Pros: The low power usage claims are true. At least, compared to the switch I replaced. I had a functionally similar 5-port gigabit switch (different brand, and a few years old) in placed, which I measured using between 4.9-5.2 watts. This switch, on the other hand, uses just 1.7 watts, connected to the same devices via the same cables. I have to say, I'm pleased with the drop in power usage. I plan to replace a couple other switches in my home now.

Cons: None, so far. I should point out that I just got this thing yesterday, so obviously I can't make any judegement of reliability or longevity. But still, for what it's worth I have had no problems so far.

Other Thoughts: The switch this one replaced was working fine, however it always did get very warm, and in the back of my mind I wondered about power consumption. So when I saw this TrendNet model go on sale, I decided to do some research. I found others had measured its power consumption, and it was substantially lower than others which were functionally similar (but not sold as low-power). And more to the point, I measured my previous switch with my Kill-A-Watt, and discovered it was substantially higher than what those internet reviews showed for this TrendNet model. So I made the purchase, and I'm happy to report a drop in utilization. It's only a little over 3 watts, but as I said I am going to replace a couple others (which are 8-port units). Provided there are no issues with this unit, I'll likely go for TrendNet's 8-port version.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked well for about a year...

Pros: Inexpensive Gigabit, Green ethernet

Cons: It was running fine in my home network for about a year, and suddenly the Windows Media Center PC it was directly connected to would end up with limited network connectivity when it woke from sleep. I then have to reboot the WMPC to regain full connectivity. Nothing about the machine, the network or the core router changed. It's really frustrating because the WMPC uses a SiliconDust HD Homerun Prime network tuner to tune/record TV. So when the WMPC does not have full connectivity the TV doesn't work! Explain that to the wife...

I recently took the line between the core router and this switch and connected it directly to the WMPC to eliminate the switch as a possible failure point. So I far have not had the same issue and so it's looking like the switch is the culprit. Unfortunately it's days of of warranty and so I guess I'm buying a new switch. Unsure if TRENDnet will be my next purchase though (and if so, certainly not this model).

1 out of 5 eggsNot Acceptable Performance

Pros: Ascetically pleasing design, but so is a Boat Anchor

Cons: Installed on a 50 ft ethernet cable from the Router. Connected to desktop Win 7 home premium computer with 3 ft ethernet cable. Also connected a network laser printer and a Win 8 Pro computer. Will not allow the Win 7 computer to connect to the router unless the win 8 computer is powered up. Replacement from a different manufacturer connects with no problem.

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 in February I tried both and both exhibited the same symptom. Will attempt to return.

Manufacturer Response:
