I always seem to need one more switch for a project. I snagged one to put on the shelf for now, for such an occasion. This is the lowest price I have seen these specific 8-port switches, and have bought them before at this price. Thanks OP

I'm a layperson, what does this do exactly? Just seems like it makes one ethernet connection into many. Like a strip for outlets except for internet cables. Is that right? Will splitting them cause slowdowns?

There's no way you're getting POE for under $20, but it sure would be nice.

Yes one ethernet connection to many. Slowdowns are very unlikely unless all the computers utilize 100% of the bandwidth at the same time.

Because it's a switch (vs hub), traffic is only passed between the devices to which that traffic is addressed, so it can actually reduce contention. For example, if one device (on, say port 1) is accessing the internet (through router on port 2), and another computer (on port 3) is backing up files to a network drive (on port 4), the two traffic streams don't collide.

OP - thanks for the post. I've out grown our 5 port switch; time for an update. I did a quick review of this and the Netgear switch mentioned earlier is this thread. The TP-Link has a lifetime warranty = winner. Otherwise they are very similar.

If the Amazon price is the same, why Newegg, with their recent customer service issues?

Basically prevents you from having to connect everything to your router. My router is in the middle of the house, so this allowed me to run a single ethernet cable to the entertainment center in the next room, rather than have a mess of wires snaking along the floor.

Negligible differences at best. I have Netgear and tp-link on my network, they both work great.
