I bought this a few weeks ago for the same price and mostly like it. The killer feature for me is the button to turn off all the lights (including the front blue LED), since it is near my bed. The integrated cable management sucks, however. The slots are too narrow for round ethernet cables and they are too close to the ports so it is difficult to plug in cables with strain relief. I actually couldn't plug in a strain relieved USB cable into the lower charging port.

Nice, cheap switch especially if you need the VLAN 802.1q functionality. I'm not a big fan of their attempt to hide the cables but it's not so much of a turnoff that I wouldn't buy it again if I needed one. Initial setup was a pain in the butt compared to a different model I purchased for a similar purpose, but a unit reset finally did the trick.

This is a good solid switch. Picked one up last time to screw around with it. Great management features/options and clean web admin panel. Have run a Pi3 AND a Pi4 simultaneously off the USB ports since the day I plugged it in (did get power warnings on the 4 under load but had dual case fans running off gpio and didn't notice any actual performance hit). My only complaint is the stupid cable management cover on the back. Save the plastic, Neatgear.

Can this sustain gigabit fiber connection downloads? Yes it has a gigbabit port but some can't actually transfer that speed.
