Recently we have installed network storage devices, and started to run backups and multi-media services on our home LAN (local area network). As a result the load on our network increased substantially. We decided to upgrade from fast ethernet to gigabit. Due to the arrangement of devices, we have several 8 port switches connected to a larger 24 bit switch which I guess is the backbone of our LAN.When shopping for gigabit switches, the Trendnet 8 port gigabit greennet switch came up as not only a low cost, ..
This switch is solid. In 3 months, I've had no problems with this Trendnet switch.Compare to my netgear crashes, gets into reboot loops, etc even after power brick and switch replacement.The Trendnet switch runs cooler than the netgear counterpart.The Trendnet, like the NetGear, has a metal case for better EMI control. The netgear case is just slightly thicker, which should provide better in-case ventilation.The Trendnet switch has ports/power on the back, and activity/connection LEDs on the front. Becau..
This switch is well built with a metal case, performs well, and is economical. I did lots of benchmarks and found that I got maximum speeds while doing multiple concurrent large inter-computer file transfers. I repeated some of the tests while bypassing the switch to see if there was a change in speed and there was none, so this switch kept up with whatever I could throw at it. If you want more speed, chances are you will gain more with better cables/plugs/jacks/etc. rather than looking for a faster switch...
