Comments about EnGenius® EGS1005 Home Entertainment Unmanaged Gigabit Ethernet Switch, 5 Ports:

I do like EnGenius's approach to uniformity in their current consumer lineup when it comes to case design (the white UFO). However, this 5-port gigabit switch falls into the low end when it comes to build quality. First off, there is no passive cooling on the hardware. At the very least I would expect a thin thermal pad on the main chipset. There is nothing at all. This will end up shortening the overall real world life of the switch. Secondly, the chipset is a Realtek chip, which are second grade in networking in my opinion. One wants a Qualcomm Atheros or Broadcom chipset.

The Realtek chip is a RTL8367N to be exact. You can more about the chip here: www.realtek.com.tw/products/productsView.aspx?Langid=1&PFid=15&Level=5&Conn=4&ProdID=333

The nice thing that stood out to me was that it actually came with it's own wall mounting screws. Most consumer networking switches do not come with them in the box, so that was nice.

Overall, the unit works well. As to the life length of the product, I am going to guess with no passive cooling and the chipset that powers this switch that it will last no more than three years.

To sum it up… Good price point & specs, cheap internal hardware.
