Solid metal case
Runs cool
Complete status lights
Wire speed
Small power adapter, low power required
Enterprise-level equipment
More expensive than consumer brands
This is a very well-built switch with enterprise-level construction that costs just a bit more than a consumer brand.

First of all...lifetime warranty! No consumer-level switch offers this.

It's solidly built in a thick-gauge metal case. The ports are at the back and the status lights are at the front. This is actually more consumer-friendly as it keeps the messy cables in the back. There's a single status LED for every function rather than just one multi-functional LED per port.

There's a power LED and then each port has a link/act LED that indicates whether the link is on and active when it blinks. Each port also has a separate 100/1000 Mbps LED that's green in gigabit mode or orange in 100 Mbps mode. This LED won't light at all if a 10 Mbps device is attached to it.

Not too high tech but it's solid and should be reliable.

The switch always runs cool, no discernible heat at all no matter what it's doing. I suppose if I had all 8 ports sending gigabit data at once I might feel something, but I haven't yet.

The power adapter is small and doesn't block an adjacent outlet on a UPS or power strip. It runs just barely warm and it's only rated 5V at 1A or 5 Watts so the switch doesn't consume much power.

For some reason the picture makes it look large but it's quite small, that picture is more or less 1/5 size. ;-)

iperf speed tests don't show any slowdown - performance is identical to the 4 LAN ports on my ASUS RT-N66U. Essentially all modern switches perform the same, the difference is in the cables, the NICs and the drivers.

Given that all switches perform the same, you have to separate them by other means. The lifetime warranty and rugged enterprise-level construction are what sets this switch apart.
