Have had the 8 port for almost a year now. Rock solid. Haven't touched it since setting up.

I was just looking this morning at the 8 port gigabit switches as my 5 port is full (and not gigabit). I was about to spend $27 or $28 for one, when this came across.

So I got all excited and bought two of them. Then, after I ordered I realized my mistake. Of course, it's not really 5, 8, or 10. If you connect this to a router, you lose one of the ports for that. If you then connect this to another 5 port, you lose that port. So, if I daisy chain this to another one (which is what I am going to do), I get 3 usable ports on the first one and 4 on the second one for a total of 7 ports, not counting the ones connecting the router and switches. With an 8 port switch, I'd get 7 also, so I basically just spend $4 too much for the same thing - the difference is I have two devices instead of 1 device - which does mean I can position them differently.
