Given this is a switch the price is not bad. I've seen smart managed reaching $18 but that was quite a long time ago.
However at the same I do wonder what is this LiteWave thing? What's special about it? Anybody knows?

I'm wondering too.

I looked at all the features and they are virtually the same as every other similar switch (auto sensing, "plug and play" (isn't every switch?), "green" tech that may mess you up while saving a few pennies etc).

I'm guessing it's just the marketing name for this particular series?

People seem to prefer metal due to better heat dissipation, but nowadays these things produce much less heat than they used to so its a moot point. If you're planning to use this as a impromptu defense tool, that's a different story Smilie

Thanks, going metal with the 8 port, worth the few extra extra $ IMHO

To the Networking guys out here, how much latency is added if I where to plug my Gaming PC into this switch instead of directly into my router? Just curious...I do a lot of FPS gaming so every milisecond counts theoretically

The problem with these sub $20 switches is the port status LED doesn't provide a visual indication of negotiated link speed (10/100/1000). I had a bad cable once before that caused the link interface to only connect at 100Mb/s, but I didn't know this at the time because there was no visual reference. Spent way too much time troubleshooting before I found the culprit.

This is my scenario:
If you put not in open air, such as. Shelf with the closed door. You better get metal version for better heat dissipation.

Try to get smart switch that support L2. Usually it has web interface that help me alot for troubleshooting. Other advantages that usefull for me, are vlan, vlan tagging, and bonding.
