For any Get Smart fans out there this product is hard to believe.
I was upstairs and my router was downstairs.
I was not able to string 3 50' cables to each of my computers.
Well I could but my wife wouldn't let me :)
This gives you hard cable speed with only one cable coming up from the basement
So now I have 4 units...PS3, Windows, Linux and a storage box all hard wired.
Sweet!

Been running for over a month, non stop activity with no freezes or reboots.

Nothing more expected from gigabit switch.

Solid performance in my home network March 20 2011
By Paul Gifford - Published on Amazon.com
Style Name: Metal HousingSize Name: 5 Port Verified Purchase
I bought two of these TRENDnet switches (a 5 port and an 8 port) when I upgraded our home network from 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps speed. I'm very happy with their performance and stability. I haven't had to think of them once since connecting them to the network. Both switches are connected to a D-Link DIR-655 Router: one with 100 feet of CAT-6 cable and the other with 25 feet.

This switch isn't very large - about the size of a paperback book. I've uploaded a picture to the product page to give you an idea of its relative size. The measurement from our Kill A Watt meter agrees with what others have already noted; this switch uses very little power. The lights on the front are helpful: green indicates a 1 Gbps connection while amber means a 100 Mbps connection.

To get a measure of speed through the switch I copied a 26 GB file between two computers connected to the same switch using drag and drop in Windows Explorer. Average speed for the transfer was 102 MB/sec. That was before enabling jumbo frames on the source and target computers.

This router supports jumbo frames up to 9216 bytes. In real world performance I achieved best performance with the computers configured for 4k frames. Between two Windows 7 64-bit computers I averaged 114 MB/sec tranferring the 26 GB file. Between a Windows 7 computer and a Windows Home Server (version 1) I averaged 109 MB/sec.

To enable jumbo frame support in Windows, right-click on Computer and select Manage. Click on Device Manager, open Network Adapters, right-click on your adapter and select Properties. Under the Advanced tab select Jumbo Frame and choose an appropriate value. Note this only applies to wired adapters; wireless connections don't support jumbo frames.

I've got absolutely no complaints about this switch. It's a great value and perfect for our home network.

This device solved my AV network problem July 6 2011
By Gary Keene - Published on Amazon.com
Style Name: Metal HousingSize Name: 5 Port Verified Purchase
This router solved a digital interference problem that occurred when I plugged network AV devices into the network port of my uVerse set-top box.

I had been using a powerline network adapter to connect internet to my network enabled DVD player, TV and home theater PC (HTPC). For video, powerline networking is a slow connection, even though this powerline adapter was advertised as good for video. However, I frequently saw that my streaming Netflix was dropping back to a low bandwidth connection because the powerline network adapter couldn't provide the bandwidth required to stream HD from Netflix.

Recently I subscribed to AT&T uVerse, and I discovered that the uVerse set-top box had a network output port. So I plugged the HTPC into that, did some DSL speed tests and discovered that the uVerse network connection was a lot faster than the powerline adapter. Apparently the uVerse box gets it's internet connection via the video coax cable.

So I ordered the TrendNet router just to split the internet signal from the uVerse box to all three audio/video devices. A gigabit switch is overkill for that purpose, but the price was right, and it's nice to have technical headroom as well as some future-proofing.

While waiting for the router to arrive, I left my HTPC connected directly to the network port on the uVerse box. Soon I was disappointed to find that as long as the computer was connected to that uVerse port, I would often get digital interference (giant pixelation) on the TV shows I was watching or recording in the uVerse set top box. "Uh-oh," I thought, "This probably means the TrendNet router is going to create the same kind of digital interference. The uVerse documentation doesn't mention using the network port as a local internet connection, so maybe it's not really meant to be used that way." I ended up disconnecting all devices from the uVerse network port, because every device did cause interference in the uVerse signal. (It's possible there was something defective in the uVerse box, of course. I didn't pursue that with AT&T, probably should have.)

Well, I received the TrendNet router. I wasn't going to return it because I knew I could use it elsewhere in the house. However, I decided on a whim to try it as a router on the back of that uVerse box. It worked! I was able to hook up all three devices to the network with the TrendNet as the "buffer" router between the uVerse box and the AV devices. I've never seen the digital interference again, and my streaming Netflix movies always connect at the highest HD bandwidth.

So, I don't know what magic is inside this TrendNet router that solves the digital interference problem, but I'm happy that it did. I've been using it for 2 months now with no problem.

Installation required no drivers - I just plugged in everything and it worked perfectly. The sturdy metal enclosure is good because the router tends to get shoved into the back of the cabinet and gets things piled on top of it, so it is handling a lot of physical abuse.

Update October 2012: Has now worked flawlessly for 15 months.

Absolutely fantastic zero-config switch June 5 2010
By Alan Hogan - Published on Amazon.com
Style Name: Metal HousingSize Name: 5 Port Verified Purchase
I'm in shock with how flawlessly and easily this device works.

I already have a mildly complicated network set up, with cable internet going to a wireless 802.11n-only router which also has four ports connecting to rooms throughout the house; another router is dedicated to broadcasting in 802.11b/g and offering AirTunes functionality (it receives music broadcast over the network). I purchased this device to allow two computers in one room to connect to the network & Internet via ethernet.

Little did I realize how simple it would be.

All I had to do was connect (any!) port on this TrendNet switch to the wall Ethernet connector and (any!) other ports on the device to the two computers in the room. Both computers immediately joined the network and had Internet connectivity. As expected, the device indicated the two local computers had gigabit connectivity, but only 100MBps connectivity to the main router (the in-wall wiring is not Gigabit-capable).

Besides its zero-config juju, I also really like the little rubber feet on the device; its solid-feeling metal build; its very informative LEDs; and its blazing speed.

Loses a couple features from the 8-port version July 19 2012
By Roger Maxwell - Published on Amazon.com
Style Name: Metal HousingSize Name: 5 Port Verified Purchase
Although the switch performs admirably and the metal case has a high-quality feel, I was a bit disappointed about two things: 1) The 5 ports on back are all plastic unlike the 8-port version where they are metal. 2) The speed indicator shows green for 1000 and nothing if the connection is 100 or 10. The 8-port version shows green for 1000, amber for 100, and off for 10, so you can tell whether you have a 100 or 10 connection. At least currently, the pictures show a plastic model which is incorrect - this unit has a metal case. Had I realized this unit couldn't differentiate between a 100 and 10 connection and has plastic ports instead of metal, I would have spent a few more dollars and got the 8-port version, even though I wouldn't use all the ports. I bought both the 8 and 5 port models and installed the 8 port first. I spent a good bit of time trying to figure out why my Apple TV was only connecting at 10 on the 5 port and 100 on the 8 port until I read the instructions and realized the status lights are different. So, there's more difference between the 5 and the 8 besides the number of ports.

Awesome Gigabit Switch - Cheap Price - Can't Go Wrong June 11 2013
By Hyoun Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Style Name: Metal HousingSize Name: 5 Port Verified Purchase
I've been networking computers for over 18 years and I've been a Network Engineer for 9 years. I can hands down say I'm very impressed with this product. Despite working with Cisco products for almost a decade, I however sadly admit that my home network definitely needed some upgrades.

You see, back in 1999, my friends and I decided to upgrade from a hub to a switch. You can't find hubs these days any longer but just know that switches replaced the hub. That switch, an 8-port 10/100 switch costed us $120. I ended up keeping that switch when all of us moved away. Surprisingly it still works but because of my shoddy network performance lately transferring from PCs and my NAS (network attached storage), I realized it was time to upgrade it and the 100Mbit speed was my bottleneck.

What's amazing is that recently, switches are very cheap. This TRENDnet 5-port Gigabit switch is an AMAZING value for $25.80 (purchased in June 2013). I didn't need many ports, just a switch to replace my 10/100 switch.

Here's what I like about this switch.

What's amazing about this switch is that it has a large packet buffer. Larger buffer = better performance when transferring files. And because of the 10Gbps forwarding capacity specs, you can guarantee that this switch will perform very fast EVEN if you had all 5 ports occupied and transferring data. What's icing on the cake is that it also supports 9K jumbo frames. While the majority of you readers may not even know what that is or use it, just know that this switch is letting you future proof yourself by allowing you to support a high performance Gigabit Ethernet LAN. The auto-MDIX (medium dependent interface crossover) is a nice touch, allowing you to use crossover and straight-through Ethernet cables without any issues.

Aesthetically, I like & don't like this switch. The metal housing is the same as what was on my old switch and it just feels like it's well made. There are no mechanical fans inside, so this thing also runs very cool. Although being light & small is sometimes a good thing, in my case I don't like that it's not a bit heavier. I have 4 devices plugged into it and all that weight makes it shift relatively easy. Honestly, four Ethernet cords are heavier than the switch.

So if you're looking for a Gigabit switch and need one that packs a punch on a budget, look no further than this device.
