Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Bring your home theater into the modern age with the AVS108

Internet-based services like Netflix, Hulu, and Xbox Live have revolutionized the world of entertainment, bringing high quality audio, video, and online gaming directly to your home theater – but without complicated network setup, streaming entertainment can all too often fall victim to low quality video, stuttering audio, and delayed response time.

AVS108 DiagramThe AVS108 is the simple, plug-and-play way to optimize any home theater system for streaming music, lag-free gaming, and high definition video – all without worrying about complicated setup or network management.

Features at a glance:

  • No complicated setup required.
  • 8 gigabit ports (3 high priority and 5 video optimized) provide high-speed access to all networked media devices.
  • Optimized for services like Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, iTunes, Windows Media Player, Xbox, and many more!
  • Automatic adjustment of power consumption based on cable length and network usage.
AVS108
AVS108 Configuration

Optimized for Streaming

The AVS108 uses a revolutionary onboard Quality of Service engine to automatically detect and optimize streaming media traffic, ensuring the highest quality entertainment experience.

3 high priority gigabit ports provide unimpeded network access to latency sensitive devices like VoIP adapters or game consoles, while 5 video optimized gigabit ports connect directly to media playback devices for automatic optimization of audio and video streams from services like Netflix, Youtube, and Hulu at rates significantly improved over a normal gigabit switch.

Plug and Play Simplicity

The AVS108 is designed to provide users with a hassle-free home theater experience. There’s no management or configuration required, and setup is as simple plugging in an Ethernet cable. The AVS108 ensures high quality, lag free video, audio, and gaming mere minutes out of the box.

Energy Efficient

IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet compliance allows the AVS108 to save power without compromising performance. For true energy efficiency, the AVS108 is able to both cut power when networked devices aren’t in use, and adjust power consumption based on the length of connected Ethernet cables – all completely automatically.

You would think that one consumer Gigabit Ethernet switch vs. another one would be a moot point...right? After all it's "old" (non bleeding edge) technology, probably mundane parts, etc. Well, I'm here to tell you this switch runs * way * faster than my SMC 5 port switch that it replaced. Videos at YouTube or msnbc.com or cnn.com etc start immediately where before they used to need to delay and buffer a long time. The Zyxel package information advertises claims that it has video optimization (acceleration) on 5 ports and lower gaming (gameplay) latency (response time) on the remaining 3 ports.

I was skeptical...really I bought this because it was inexpensive (I paid $22.00 including shipping). Well, whatever it does or has in it - it works. Delays are gone. Admittedly my old SMC swith was bottom of barrel price-wise. I should mention I have switches in various places throughout the house and am aware of the 5-4-3 rule and use good cable. This switch is placed immediately after the router. Again, it works great, delays are gone. If I'd know it would have made that much difference I would have bought it long ago. This model is quirky - I almost sense it's being closed out. I thought enough of it to order two (2) extras as backups for future expansion or for when my other SMC and Linksys switches die. I can recommend this.

Superfast gigabit ethernet hub with dedicated video streaming and VOIP hub enhanced for quality internet service. Quick and easy to install. All you need is use your two hands and eyes to install them.

1sale.com has a sale on this one for $9.99 (2-6-14) and IT IS A GEM. THEY WON'T LAST LONG, so you may want to just buy it here on Amazon.

I have a SmartTV (Samsung), cable internet, Blu-ray and a Roku box. Anytime previously I would try to get something on my Roku box, it would take forever to load. With the Aerobeam, there is no wait time. I used to see the load bar slowly load. Now I see the load bar for about 1 second, if that.

I would suggest that when you install it, put the Roku box on the 1ST optimized connection (1st one on the FAR right), then your SmartTV, then your Blu-ray, IF it is internet-capable (if it is not, place it further to the left).

I loved this switch so much, I bought another one - IT IS THAT GOOD. It regulates your streaming, so if you are using the Roku, it applies all the bandwidth to that device first or whatever device you are using. The SmartTV has enough power on its own to access the Internet without drawing more bandwidth, so that is why I said to place your ROKU or other similar box FIRST (far right) in the connection list (RJ-45).
