Good basic switch.
Beware of the rebate card in Canada
The $10 rebate card doesn't actually produce $10 - its something less than $10 in Canada. I had to get it authorized for $9.75 to get to work. 25 cents itself is not a big deal, but it is terrible when rebate cards are used to try and prevent consumers from getting the full rebate value they are entitled to. Really not worthy of a company that makes good equipment but then resorts to things like this.

They get the "Completely unsatisfactory" not because the product isn't good, but because of using these rebate tactics.

Work perfectly
Very plasticcy looking
Works great, using it to get both IPs from the ISP.
Running two routers off it. No disconnects in the last
2 months of use. The LEDs behind the numbers are
too bright so they leak over to the ones next to it on the
connection display.

Experience: 6 Months

Its a switch!
crappy stand system
This is a switch nothing mpre fancy. Great way to add 3 more wired lan connections, or a great way to divide one cat5 connection into 4. I have one cat5 pulled to my tv, and now I can have my xbox, playstation, wii (with an adapter), and media center all networked at once.

The stand is very crappy, it makes the switch take up twice as much room, and it falls over easily, I just took the stand off and it now lives in a box.

Experience: 10 Days

good price got it for 15 $ after MIR
None it's a simple switch!
I did the work well for my network and it did the work quite nicely. No RJ 45 cable included at all . I expected 1 to be included but no.
