Comments from buyers

“easy to install reasonably priced priority unmanaged switch, Works fine. good service, Works well and fits nicely into my Ethernet”

Simple to set up reasonably priced precedence unmanaged switch. My only gripe is it would be good to have some advice on what to plug into the priority ports.

    V2 of this switch probably works much better. Amazon is selling v2 of this switch and i can confirm that the problem with upnp traffic is not there anymore, confirmed through actual use of my upnp devices on the network. The switch looks really well designed, and of very good build quality. I like the way the leds look, being exposed on modern furniture, and i must say it works perfectly fine. Speed is as advertised, and power consumption is very efficient, myself being very conscious about how much energy my 24/7 devices use. All in all i must say i’m very satisfied with this switch. I have had no time to actually test the qos features of this switch, but i did connect the devices according to priority, but having no major bandwidth bottlenecks on my home lan it’s difficult to really attest as to how effective the built-in qos features are. On the other hand, it’s good to have them in place if the traffic needs it.

    For the price this was perfect for the job in hand. No setting up required and fast enough to allow full download speeds for smart tv and nas drive.

      There are many better than this. Zyxel is a name you can trust in networking and it will not let you down. I have several devices by this manufacturer.

    Case is obviously two timing for a version with more ports. So it is 20% wider than my existing zyxel 5 port switch. However it does have more features and performs faultlessly.

      I bought one of these a year ago. I had no hesitation paying a bit more than the cheapest amazon had for my second one. Literally i just plugged it in and the gigabit network was up and running. Checked each device to check speed. Only issue was in had used a cheap network cable for one connection so it was not a gigabit cable. Swapped it out and hey presto it was full speed. The unit looks solidly built.
