This is a Gigabit switch. Okay for general purpose.
Plug-n-play, etc.
These cheaper unmanaged switches tend to max out at 1Gb total traffic. That's the max they can handle no matter the direction or the port(s). Higher-end Gigabit models can bump up to 1Gb for each port in each direction simultaneously. Keep this in mind if you will have quite a bit of traffic through multiple ports.

Had to check. I sometimes see New-Old 100Mb/s switches hit Amazon or fleabay. The subtext for those sellers pushing antiquated tech is "It was made in 2004, but it's never been opened, so technically it's new." ... This one is fortunately slightly less old than that.

Could you recommend a 5/8 port switch that allows 1GB per port instead of total?

Sorry about the late replay. I looked into it a bit further, this one does seem to deliver on 1Gb per port, so i was wrong in assuming otherwise. For a little bit more, here's an 8-port version:
