    Switch is what i need for my entertainment center right? I have it hardwired from my computer room. I am out of space on my 5 port one.

    Ordered. I've been needing an 8-port switch for a while now. Can't pass this up.

    Just got mine. More compact than I thought and it is pretty light (all plastic.) Unexpectedly, though, the power connector is on the left side, close to the front. There's worse things, but it is ugly IMO.

    Hopefully I get mine today. The looks don't bother me as it's just going to go into a cabinet anyway. Functionality is key.

    Agreed, I'm sad I missed this actually, Ive been looking for a gigabit switch for a little while now. I have a Drobo that is gig, and a server that has a gig port, and its all hooked to a 10/100... FAIL.

    There's a Trendnet version for $22 shipped on Newegg right now. I didn't post it because it is $2 too much. :p
