I highly recommend it if you need a switch with no more than 8 ports!

I have been using this for little more than a year now and haven't experience any issue thus far.
I bought this as part of the home networking project to replace all the switches (with at least 8 ports) in the house with metal housing. The installation was nothing more than powering it on and connecting all cables (as should ALL other home/consumer switches nowadays).
The metal casing seems sturdy and well-constructed with no obvious defects (sharp edges or misaligned openings etc). I also tested jumbo frames at 9000 bytes and it didn't have any issues with that either. All in all, this is s a nice 8-port consumer switch with metal casing.

One star less on durability as it's TP-Link so will break in 3 years. I will come back and correct this if it's still going in 2021.
The Pro version of this has a WebUI TP-Link TL-SG108E
(Firstly I've not done this yet but it looks easy enough)
They call this an 'unmanaged' switch but actually it has a WebUI and you can do some smart things with this like VLANs and Link Aggregation. If you don't want these fancy features then save your money and buy a cheaper 1gig switch, it will work just as well.
The switch actually has an internal bandwidth of 16gig even though the ports are only 1gig. The reason for this is that each port can handle 1gbs in and 1gbs out at the same time and there are 8 of them. This means your PC can drag a file from the server and dump it on your PC at 1gbs speed but effectively using 2gbs of bandwith since two ports are running at 1gbs.
So what would happen if you could use two Ethernet ports at once connected to your PC and two connected to your server? Well you would have 2gbs LAN speed!!!
It's called LAG Link Aggregation 802.3ad and is under the Switch section of the WebUI of the TP-Link. You can have two groups. Add two ports to one group and two ports to the other. Then on the Linux server and PC you've got to BOND two ports together but the drivers are already built into the Kernel. Plenty of stuff online how to do that.
You might just use an aggregated connection to your server so that it can handle two people using 1gbs.
For £27 this is a seriously smart switch.
Note that you'd be advised to get Cat6 cable to use with Gigabit ethernet as although Cat5 and Cat5E can support the speeds they're not certified to do so and may provide unreliable connections. That said I've used both without any apparent issues so Cat5 will still work if you already have that, but worth knowing in case you get reliability issues that it's more likely to be the cable than the switch.
I love the feature where you can measure and find out if any of your network cables has a fault. Replace the ones it shows has issues to get a much better home network.
