    "as simple as it is to set up and while it works ok for the most part, it has power problems. at maximum 250m range, there's some power loss resulting in lower output.i dont fully recommend this since that little detail was not mentioned"

    "my family loves to use the net a lot, and they all love to stream on their computers or laptops. this switch holds up so well to meet everyone's needs and the only time anyone complains is because our service provider has server issues. other than that, definitely a recommended ethernet switch for home use"

    "here's the good of it: easy set up, and the lights can be turned off so it doesn't hurt the eyes of anyone passing by it in the living room. my only gripe is that there's no actual inlet for it to be hung on the wall. nothing a little zip tie and ingenuity cant fix"
