Home media maven and gamer.

Strengths: Easy, silent, runs cool, just plug it in and it works.

Weaknesses: Absolutely no weaknesses that I can discern whatsoever.

Summary: This is what you want to speed up your home wired network. Great for my uses with multiple HD media feeds that I want to be able to use flexibly from different sources (e.g. NAS, PCs) to different screens (e.g. plasma) and for moving large files quickly etc. Relatively inexpensive for what you get.

Great 1.0 gbps switch for the price

Strengths: Easy installation. Metal enclosure, not plastic.

Weaknesses: None noticed.

Summary: Works great with my 1.0 Gbps & 100 Mbps computers and Network attached storage. Lots of ports available for my networked printers. I like the metal enclosure as it adds weight so it isn't flopping around on the bench, but it does have mounting tabs.

Netgear gigabit switch

Strengths: Easy to deploy and conserves space

Summary: This is a easy plug and play device which doesn't take up much space given the fact that my client does not have the dedicated space for their server room.
