Plus up to another nearly 10% off if you live where Amazon charges sales tax (as I do).

My concern is buying another TP-LINK product. I have an inexpensive AP that keeps having to be rebooted when it randomly loses connections speed. If they can't get it right on the cheapie stuff, seems to me the higher end stuff might also be problematic.

Nice price for a managed switch. No POE ports, however.

Very fair warning there - resetting routers is so painful, have to get up off the couch. Can't imagine what it was like before remotes

Is anyone able to comment on how the switch would compare with a traditional home router? I tried looking but did not get a clear idea. I have a 4 port router with tomato installed but wanted to move up to gigabit for a new NAS (and not have to piggyback multiple 4 port routers). It sounds like I would just need a router plugged into the switch for wireless right?

It won't replace the router, but you can add it to the network to get some gigabit connectivity to your NAS. Anything connected to the switch would have gigabit speed assuming you used appropriate cables and the items connected support gigabit (if your router is 100Mbit, it would connect at 100Mbit). Your network connection probably doesn't exceed 100Mbit so having a 100Mbit router should be fine, but I could be wrong.

Edit: Assumed you were talking about the switch, if you're talking about the router then it would be a direct replacement.

Wonder if those USB ports would fully power 1 (or 2?) Raspberry Pi's...

If you have a 4-port router, including DHCP server and gateway functions, this will NOT replace that. This is a switch with some advanced switching features, but you will still need a router or DHCP server to hand out IP's and something to act as a gateway (to go one hop out to your modem, and thus the interwebs). But, you can connect this to the router and all devices connected will have good gigabit speeds between them. But if your tomato router/gateway is not gigabit, you will not get internet beyond 100 mbps, should your ISP's speed exceed that.

The devices between the gigabit switch will have gigabit transfer. As long as you don't have another device like a NAS on your router you want to access, then as long as it's on the switch, the router will assign addresses to each device and the devices will communicate over the switch.
