Internet-based services like Netflix, Hulu, and Xbox Live have revolutionized the world of entertainment, bringing high quality audio, video, and online gaming directly to your home theater - but without complicated network setup, streaming entertainment can all toooften fall victim to low quality video, stuttering audio, and delayed response time.
Optimized for Streaming
The AVS105 uses a revolutionary onboard Quality of Service engine to automatically detect and optimize streaming media traffic, ensuring the highest quality entertainment experience.
2 high priority gigabit ports provide unimpeded network access to latency sensitive devices like VoIP adapters or game consoles, while 3 video optimized gigabit ports connect directly to media playback devices for automatic optimization of audio and video streams from services like Netflix, Youtube, and Hulu at rates significantly improved over a normal gigabit switch.
Plug and Play Simplicity
The AVS105 is designed to provide users with a hassle-free home theater experience. There's no management or configuration required, and setup is as simple plugging in an Ethernet cable. The AVS105 ensures high quality, lag free video, audio, and gaming mere minutes out of the box.
IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet compliance allows the AVS105 to save power without compromising performance. For true energy efficiency, the AVS105 is able to both cut power when networked devices aren't in use, and adjust power consumption based on the length of connected Ethernet cables - all completely automatically.
Piece of Junk
Pros: Gigabit Ethernet
Cons: "High Priority" and "Video-Optimized" (low priority) ports w/ QoS... I just wanted a normal switch but the price was right for this so I bought it anyway.
Other Thoughts: Plugged it in and I got about 99% dropped packets trying to connect it to my router through my ZyXEL powerline ethernet adapters. I have been using my crummy old 10/100 D-Link switch and it's worked fine, I wanted to use this to upgrade to Gigabit but it never actually worked. Tried switching the ports around but it still didn't work, so I plugged in my old switch and now I have no problems. This was my first ZyXEL switch and I'm not impressed at all. I'm returning this asap.

From 100Mbs to 1Gb
Pros: Well my connection speed went from 100Mbps to 1Gbps. Time will tell what kind of difference that will make. I already have my cable company's highest connection speed option.
Cons: Could not use without my old router. It acts like a router but my devices(Blue-Ray player, XBOX 360) cannot connect to the internet with this alone though my computer had no trouble connecting. Had to connect through the old router and use as an add-on. Still not sure if it's improving anything.
Other Thoughts: Went to company's website for support and this item is not listed. 3 Eggs is generous.
