1 out of 5 eggsIt sucks!

Pros: Good price.

Cons: It never did work continuously. I couldn't get more than one port to work at any time. It was a hit or miss.

Other Thoughts: I should have returned it right after I first received it, but sometimes I'm a procrastinator and never got around to it..

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap and effecitve

Cons: Unit gets very warm. But this is to be expected with a plastic shell.

Other Thoughts: It's simple. It's an unmanaged switch. It handles gigabit traffic well with little overhead (including large frame packets). I had effective transfer speeds of ~820Mbps on large file transfers. This is about as fast as any other switch I owned/seen.

I used it to augment my router switch which only had 4 ports. I needed 7 "hardwired" devices to relieve wifi (n) bottle-necking from servers to streaming devices.

5 out of 5 eggsEffective

Pros: This switch seems to operate my entire room worth of machines with ease when only a few machines are running. see other.

Cons: Heat buildup gets a bit intense when there are 6 machines pulling data down

Other Thoughts: Get it elevated more than its stock feet support as it seems to cool better like that. I used bottlecaps as feet then used a mini desk fan to save this little guy from a short hot death.

Under light use I expect this thing to last until death but I suspect some of the early failures of these are from people who bought a low end product for a high end job.

1 out of 5 eggs↓↓ Rosewill Products trending ↓↓

Pros: It's a nice shade of black.

Cons: Worked OK for about six months, then periodic packet loss and drop outs. Works for a while after reboot, then repeats. Swapped with a three year old Netgear switch and everything is golden again.

Other Thoughts: Thought I had problems with my Roku and access point at first, since restarting them would sometimes "solve" the network glitches. Finally tested with numerous other devices and had the same issue.

This is not an isolated issue. I've had several other Rosewill devices go south recently and it's no longer worth it to deal with RMA hassles. For home use, there are better (and cheaper) products from Trendnet.
