The Ethernet Switch Broke. Bad RMA Experience. The Device worked decently when i first got it. Plug & play for the most part. The Switch eventually became defective. Some of the ports were no longer connecting. Some of the devices i had connected to certain ports would tell me it was receiving no internet until i tried a different port. The lights on each port that were supposed to be either green or yellow depending on the type of device connected started randomly changing where they didn’t used to before. And on the ports that weren’t flat out not working the devices connected would still get intermittent loss of internet.So i had to RMA it. Talked to TP-Link support and they sent out a replacement. I got a TL-SG108 Version 1 switch. The original one i bought had a higher version number. I got a downgraded replacement from what i originally bought. I talked to support about this and spoke with someone who didn’t even know that there were feature differences between the product versions. Kept getting the same repeated…

plug and play, as simple as that This is the average joe review for people who doesn’t have much background in networking. Are you one of those people who purchased a Velop mesh wifi unit and found out it only has 1 lan port? Well get this switch and problem solved. There is no software or complicated set up. Just plug this unit in and let it do its thing. Do you need to set up POE security cameras and you need more ports? This switch will solve that problem too, provided you have a power injector for your camera. Does your wifi router have problem streaming 4k content and you want to switch to a wired option? This switch offer peak rate at 2000Mbps. If you are like me and have your movies on a hard drive connected to your router, this lan switch will let you access and play 4k movie super smooth on a wired connection. The best part of this switch is the plug and play feature with minimal or no tweaking necessary. Thank you to you smart people out there who made this switch idiot-proof for people like me.
