    Gigabit switch that can be powered by usb. . This is a fantastic 8 port gigabit switch that can be powered by usb i spent ages looking for one of these and i am so glad i found this one. I needed extra ports next to my router and really did not want yet another power adapter plugged in. As my router has a usb port on the back this switch just plugs straight in and gives me plenty of extra ports.

    Clever idea to reduce no of power blocks/consumption. I only had 1 network cable getting to my tv area, but i needed another connection point for the bluray player. I certainly didn’t want yet another power block constantly plugged in for a “standard” 5 port switch, so this is ideal. I plug this on the usb labelled 1a on my samsung tv, theoretically for usb hard disks. I only ever need network when the telly is on, and when we use bluray, the telly is on of course, so this network switch is only switched on and draws power when needed.

    All the functionality for a fraction of the price of other 5-port gigabit switches, never mind 8-port units. All plastic case, charger separate with a proper 13a plug received (with 5v power coming out from top of plug – not always ideal for multi-way strip with opposing sockets, but i am getting really picky here). Also included is a power lead to support feed from a usb socket (say on a pc) to the device, saving you a 13a socket, but then reliant on pc being on. Back to function: this product does all that other switches do at 3 or 4 times the price. Leds indicate sockets active, including traffic activity. Mounting slots in the rear allow for wall mounting – the unit is so light, small screws or even velcro could do the job. Metal case, if that matters to you. Indication of 100mbs connections vs 1000mbs connections (some switches offer colour indication of this).

    Makes a significant improvement when streaming from my. Created a gig speed home network with 3 of these, tv room, home office, and games room. All powered from spare usb ports on other devices, which is nice. Makes a significant improvement when streaming from my nas box, or backing up devices over the network. They work fine with 100mb devices also.
