Bring your home theater into the modern age with the AVS108

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 too often fall victim to low quality video, stuttering audio, and delayed response time.

Optimized for Streaming

The AVS108 uses a revolutionary onboard Quality of Service engine to automatically detect and optimize streaming media traffic, ensuring the highest quality entertainment experience.

3 high priority gigabit ports provide unimpeded network access to latency sensitive devices like VoIP adapters or game consoles, while 5 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 AVS108 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 AVS108 ensures high quality, lag free video, audio, and gaming mere minutes out of the box.

Energy Efficient

IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet compliance allows the AVS108 to save power without compromising performance. For true energy efficiency, the AVS108 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.

1 out of 5 eggs80211b is faster - DON'T BUY THIS!

Pros: The LEDs make a nice night light.

Cons: It is S-L-O-W. I mean, even the slowest 1MBPS Wifi is faster. Heck, even a 14.4KPBS modem is faster! A 3 MB MP3 file took 7 minutes to copy. A 15 KB text file took 11 seconds. Ridiculous.

Other Thoughts: If I could have rated this switch 0 stars, I would have. Zyxel had a great reputation back in the modem days; unfortunately, it looks like they are still using modem chipsets in modern equipment. The only reason I didn't return it is because it was a shellshocker deal. All I have to say is "You get what you pay for". Lesson learned - I'm never touching Zyxel again.

1 out of 5 eggsdevrie23

Pros: Turns on, Lights Work. My Media Center PC using silicondust Prime and NAS box work with it but you pay the price on the other PC. see cons.

Cons: Causes my office PC to lag and hang when browsing the web with any type of flash or animated web pages. When I ping the router, it goes from less than 1ms to timeout to 3000ms. It is very inconsistant.

Other Thoughts: My setup - In yellow ports are the Dlink NAS box (for movies) and Silcondust Prime. In the blue ports are 1 office PC, Router, and Media Center PC connected to TV. Most likely going to RMA it.

1 out of 5 eggspretty lights?

Pros: The lights come on and it does pass traffic for a few minutes. Then nothing.

Cons: Bought this thinking that it would help with Media Center Extender performance... I was wrong, within 5 minutes of using it I was getting MANY lost packets. Working with ZyXEL support to get this resolved. Most likely will just RMA. If I could give it 0 eggs I would.

Other Thoughts: At first I thought it was great when my times were cut in half, then it had issue within 5 minutes.

1 out of 5 eggsUseless

Pros: Powers on, lights work

Cons: Hooked up switch between my PC and home router. No other machines on switch. When I refreshed several browser windows on my PC, ping times between my PC and router went from 1ms to 2000ms, making this switch completely unusable. My previous switch stayed rock steady at <1ms ping times throughout this kind of activity.

Other Thoughts: I do not know if this behavior is due to the port priority schemes, but in a simple setup as this, with only two nodes connected to a switch, there should be no problems whatsoever. Maybe it is some incompatibility between this switch and my PC ethernet port, or between the switch and my router port. In any case I do not have the time to debug this situation, and have ordered a different manufacturer's switch in the meantime. The only reason I tried this unknown model was a Newegg shell shocker deal.

Manufacturer Response:
