I ran out of LAN ports on my router, do I need something like this or do I need a 'switch'?

A switch would be cheaper.

you probably just need a switch, these are used as primary routers

I haven't seen the lite go on sale lately. Keep in mind that if you plan on using QOS (which is very good on this router), then this one will actually perform better due to the the faster CPU. With QOS disabled, the Lite performs better.

Pretty helpful for creating network isolation for IoT devices in your house. The interface and location of config items takes some getting used to, but at this price it's a nice deal.

If you're comparing this and the ER-X-US for $40, Newegg's spec page is wrong about the 130 kpps 64-byte performance for the ER-X-US. Both routers have the same performance. The only differences are that the ER-X-SFP has an SFP port, it comes with a 24V 2.5A power supply (vs 24V 0.5A on ER-X-US), and the SFP can do POE on all 5 ports. To me that's worth the extra $20.

Yes, there's a load balancing wizard in the GUI
