This thing has 5-year warranty. I just replaced a bad one (from thunderstorm) for a brand new one. No question asked. I just bought another one!

Is it better to get 2x 8 ports or 1x 16 port? I'm expecting to need 12 ports to wire the entire house.

I have the one in the original post, and I consider it a better choice as it is metal and has a limited lifetime warranty.

Depending if you need 14 ports at 1 specification location or 7 (or 6) usable ports at two distinct (say bedroom + office) locations.

When you use a switch, you automatically lose 1 port to connect it to the router, so any 8 port switch becomes 7 usable ports, if you have to daisy chain to another switch, you lose another usable port from switch #1 and lose 1 port on switch #2 to connect it to your router.

If you have 16 port swiitch, you only lose 1 port connecting it to the router.

Router >>> (Switch #1) (1) ( 6 usable ports ) (1 out) >>>> (Switch #2) (7 usable ports)
Router >>> Location 1 >> Location 2

or Router >> (16 port switch )(1) [15 usable port]

Until it malfunctions and resets itself and starts working as a router again and then you have to wonder why its not working.

I use the one from BestBuy! All the cat6 cables is on the back(invisible).
The metal one will show you all the cables(connection is on the front)...Don't think about lifetime...BS
They all work good 5-10 years...

Either will work fine. I prefer metal, but I also like the one you linked since it has the power and ethernet ports all on the same side.

Not much of an expert but was always told the steel-clad ones are better, all else equal.

I was in the same situation and went with the 8 port. I now wish I would have bought the 16 port as I also purchased a powerline kit for my main level of the house. Think too many or not enought.....which would you rather have?
