IMPORTANT: This product has a version 1 and a version 2. The major difference (and possibly the only difference) is that V1 in only configurable via a software utility you have to install from disc, whereas, V2 is configurable via a web GUI which for me was a MAJOR plus.
I received the V2 product thankfully. I didn't do anything special when ordering, I'm guessing the supplier flushed out all the V1s. From un-boxing to walking away, it took me all of 15 min. And that's only because I geeked out on looking through all the cool settings. You could be up in running in less than 10 if you're used to this kind of equipment. My initial experience with this unit has been fantastic. I would recommend this to anyone no problem.
I bought two of these to replace several 5-port Netgear switches I had scattered around the house, often daisy-chained. I've been having issues with my network, some of which have been cleared up by these switches; mainly not obtaining proper IP addresses, or machines connected to them not obtaining proper IP addresses. This TP-Link switch is incredibly fast and I've never had IP issues with them to date. After you turn them on, they only take a second or two to initialize and obtain an IP address; in other words, almost instantly. I've never seen a switch come online that quickly before. The Netgears often would take 30 seconds or more, and sometimes even then, as I mentioned, would fail to connect properly to the router if I turned them on too soon. This TP-Link switch doesn't seem to have any of those issues. You can power it on or off any time you like relative to your router; as soon as a link is available, it will connect. It works like a switch should, meaning hassle-free; you turn it on and it switches packets.
Something else I noticed, which I've also noticed when upgrading other network equipment like my wifi router, is that it makes everything on the network snappier. I'm talking about LAN, of course. For WAN, obviously it isn't going to speed up your Internet connection; but you will notice less latency, resulting in faster loading web pages, and shorter times for connecting to a VPN server, or any other WAN activity that requires establishing a connection. Just as your CPU will affect web-speeds, so will the equipment you use on your internal LAN. Everything from switches to the NIC, CPU, RAM and drive on your computer, to your router to your modem will affect your 'Internet' speed. None of this, again, will improve the speed of your Internet service; but the better your equipment in each of these categories, the snappier things will connect, cache, load, route, switch, et cetera. It all adds up - or subtracts if you have poor equipment.
I purchased two; one is in my garage server cabinet and feeds the house from the main router; the other is in my home office and disseminates connections to the various computers and devices in the office. My old Netgear switches were always full; now I have more ports than I will probably ever need for expansion.
These offer a big improvement over the small 5-port switches given the 2 Gbps dedicated to each port. I can do Steam in-home streaming from my home office PC to the livingroom while my wife streams videos from the wifi router and neither will affect the other; as they shouldn't, since one is a WAN activity and the other is a LAN-only activity. However, in the past, the smaller switches acted as a bottle-neck in the LAN, with the result that heavy LAN use could affect WAN use and visa versa. If you have these issues, this switch will probably clear them up for you.
I also opened these switches up to look inside. I'm no electrical engineer, but they appear to be quite well built: clean traces, good quality capacitors, solid components overall and well laid-out. They also didn't over-engineer the case: just a handful of screws to open it up. The case is well-ventilated and solid. The powder-coating is well done and the color is quite attractive. I know this is a minor detail, but I really like the LEDs on the front as well: they are small, rectangular and quite bright, and organized into both 10/100 and Gigabit categories so you can differentiate traffic quite easily at a glance.
