To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Just plug it all in and away it goes. Each port has an active indicator which is handy so you can see when things are working. Bought this because I was replacing an old BT Hub3 which was being used as a secondary unit that had a failing wifi connection. Bought a TP-Link wifi unit but it didn’t have Ethernet ports for external circuits. I now have the wifi working and the Ethernet circuits, mostly used for streaming to TV’s and for a mobile signal unit. This unit is connected into my main BT Hub at the incoming telephone point which is about 25 metres away. Smart looking piece of kit and metal construction with 16 ports for £28, absolute bargain. Mine is an un-managed one which is fine for domestic use, it doubles the price for a managed one so don’t get one if you don’t need it. Looked at getting a smaller one but the power consumption for this one was actually less! Mine is in the loft but if you are installing in a living space it is silent as it does not have a fan. In a way its a shame to hide it away, though probably not everyone would be of that opinion!
Works fine. Much cheaper than NetGear and seems just as solidly built. I like the fact it comes with mounting brackets that can be used for rack mounting or for wall mounting. Also it just takes a basic kettle lead - the transformer is built into the body rather than being in one of those bulky plugs which is good for me.
Be aware that it is considerbly bigger than some other switches as it has the transformer in the main unit. Check the dimensions before you buy!
