I have a small home office as self employed. PC, Printer, Scanner, HD TV and the like - all needed and as well all need internet connection The number of Ethernet wires all round the floor were becoming a problem.
So after some checking decided to try out this, desk top switch.
Firstly the package is good, item well protected plus not too much waste. Pleased with this. The box has in the actual TP-Link (which can be wall mounted or left on desk or floor - mine is on floor behind desk), power adapter and instrution manual.
The information said that this item was plug and play. I have often found this not to be the case but with this desk top switch was proved wrong. It really is plug and play.
I run a 20m Ethernet cable from the internet router. Once out of box I plugged in the main Ethernet feed and then the other link cables from each port to each device and to my pleasure everything worked - first time..great connectivity all round. This switch works well - so much so that I have almost forgotten it was there. At less than £29 this is a well within my price range it could be said to be a sheap solution to avoid the trip hazards that multiple cable runs around floor cause.
Another plus point is that the information says that this switch is "green" enery saving. With "Innovative energy-efficient technology saves power up to 70%".
Not sure how to measure this - but if true and I have no reason to think otherwise then it is another plus point. The switch also looks right, strong box, not too big. Which always helps.
I am very pleased with this item.
