4 out of 5 eggsVery Good Switch

Pros: Small. Lights on the front are easy to read and understand. Good design. Low pings. Good speeds

Cons: Too lightweight, it moves around on my table too easily. Build quality feels a bit cheap.

Other Thoughts: Overall it is a very good switch, mine still runs great.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Switch

Pros: Super small form factor, smaller than it appears in pictures. Low power usage, and rigid construction. I was able to do hickup free gaming, while I had a linuxbox torrenting and 2 other computers over this switch.

Cons: No firmware for setting adjustment of any kind.

Other Thoughts: Very affordable, made of steel, and it handles traffic wonderfully.

3 out of 5 eggsTrendnet TEG-S50G Unmanaged Gigabit Switch - Basic Switch

Pros: - OK Price when on sale.
- Very small Profile.
- Metal Case For Heat Dissipation.
- Provides Gigabit Switching and Full Gigabilt Transfer speeds.

Cons: - Lights in front only Indicate when Port is Active, Not Speed.
- Port Lights Spread to other Ports. Hard to determine which ports are actually used.
- Not Wall Mountable with Screws.
- Not Rack Mountable without drilling holes in case.
- Feels kind of cheap even with a metal case.

Other Thoughts: I purchased a couple of these 5 port switches for a client to use in a home network installation. The switches are very small and relatively light. Port indicator lights are on the opposite side of the switch from the ports with the power cord on the side. These positions can be an advantage or a disadvantage for individual preference so I will not give my opinion on them. The switch is actually one of the smallest that I have ever evaluated in terms of physical size. D-link, Netgear, Zytel, and TP-Link unmanaged 5-Port switches are all physically slightly larger than this switch as well as being heavier. Again whether this is an advantage or disadvantage is up to the individual evaluator. If you are looking for a metal case switch that is light and very small, such as a travel switch, this may be an excellent option for you.

Performance wise, this switch had equivalent transfer speeds to other gigabit switches from other manufacturers. Durability may be an issue but I cannot speak to that other than to say that the warranty is not as long as other business class switches.

The light weight, lack of mounting holes, lack of rack mountability, roburrs on the outside case, and the poor port indicator lights made this switch feel and look cheap compared to equivalent offerings from other 5-port unmanaged switches. The cost was pretty much the same as other 5-port switches in the same class.

In conclusion, this Trendnet TEG-S50G unmanaged switch has equivalent gigabit transfer rates to other gigabit unmanaged switches from other competitors. The Trendnet switch is smaller in physical size but feels "cheap" in finish compared to switches from D-Link, Netgear, Zytel, or TP-Link. The poor quality of the Port Indicator lights was especially irritating to me. That is why I gave the Trendnet switch 3 eggs.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,


We thank you for your feedback on the TEG-S50G. Your comments and opinions are very important to us. They help us improve our products. The front panel LED’s do indicate speed with a key in the top right corner. They use color to denote the speed of connection. A green LED indicates a Gigabit connection and an orange LED indicates a 10/100 connection. The unit is a desktop switch. Unfortunately it does not include a rack mount option. However, it does have wall mount points. The information currently on Newegg shows a 1 year warranty. This information is incorrect. The unit is backed by a 3 year warranty and we will have this information corrected as soon as possible.



Thank you,

Adrian

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product!

Pros: This switch is perfect, running a few things on this main switch rather than using a wireless router as a form of switch. I will and can not find a con for this product because it's perfect for my needs. It manages the routing as it should as well as no collision domain bottlenecks on my networks. I love it!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Just go for this, no regrets here.

1 out of 5 eggsFail

Pros: Nothing that I can see.

Cons: First one failed second one (RMA) was the same.

I am not sure what is wrong with this switch but is simply does not work. Plug it in and it works for a few seconds, then no connectivity. You can reset the switch for a few more seconds.

My replacement did the exact same thing.
100% failure rate - stay away.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Anonymous ,

I apologize for the overall frustration this has caused. Are the LED lights are green and on/blinking when connectivity is lost? Please double check if you have a 5V DC, 1A external power adapter and please try different Ethernet cables. If these still don’t help please email me directly at adrian@trendnet.com with "Newegg TEG-S50G Review" in the subject line and I will be able to assist you immediately. Thank you for reviewing our product and I hope to hear from you soon to regain your faith in TRENDnet.

Warm Regards,
Adrian

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: The unit is smaller than advertised...

Does not come with a CD. You just unbox, plug it in, and go. You can use it to tie computers together offline or put the modem in spot 1, then tie other computers into that. Fantastic.

The unit is actually a lot smaller than I expected. The listed dimensions are actually false, it is smaller.

The unit is 4.5" x 2.75" x 1"

Very bare bones, yet the casing is actually metal. This is actually very impressive given the price. I will buy more of these... I like that there are 5 ports, so you can connect these switches via the first and have the even 4 to go. I am working on a super computer project and this makes expansion simple.

Cons: None yet. I have not used this thing very long. If it lasts over 1 year I will be happy.

Other Thoughts: I have a decent amount of tech knowledge, though I am nothing special when it comes to networking, which I am trying to learn now. This unit is really "turn key" ... just plug it in and go. Really happy with this!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: its very easy to use and setting it up is easy and it works like it should but maybe i should have got an 8-port just to be safe.

Cons: when i started using it my internet was screwing up and i thought it was the switch causing an overload but it turned out to be my ISP was messing up so no worries.

Other Thoughts: another great product on newegg and i guess you can call me an egg-head because i love to shop on this site for certain things i need

5 out of 5 eggsThe Center of My Entire Home Network!

Pros: -1 Gbps speeds
-Adequate for servers
-Small, but not fragile!

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: This is driving two of my servers, one of which is my file/Minecraft server (amongst other applications) and my routing server. Since I've had this, I've never had any hiccups in the network! It's constantly "throughputting" data and holds up well.

5 out of 5 eggsThe test of a switch is how long it lasts.

Pros: Works.

Cons: Didn't include a unicorn.

Other Thoughts: The test of a switch is how long it lasts. For whatever reason, I haven't had a 10/100/1000 switch last longer than 3 years, while I have 10/100 switches working great after more than a decade of use. If this one fails, I'll come back and update this review.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Performance, Low Cost

Pros: Great switch for use in low volume general use situations. Compact solid metal chassis. Performs to specifications for a very low price point making this our go to switch for installations that just require a basic switch.

Cons: Over 20 of these deployed and no negative comments so far.
