    I use this switch to connect my PS3, PS4, and WD Media Player to the switch in my router on my home network. It has performed flawlessly for me, so my brother went and bought one just like it to do the same thing. Much faster than WiFi so if you game online this is the best way to keep from lagging.

    I purchased the Linksys SE2500 switch at my local Staples store to hardwire my home entertainment components together and then run one CAT6 cable to my router. The activity lights are on the back, which I like and can be turned on or off. This way I go not get a "light show" from the shelving in my entertainment center.

    The matte black plastic casing is nice as well. It does not show dust and wear (scratches) like the glossy casing many other consumer-grade switches have.

    Opening up the switch does void your warranty, but I did it anyway since I wanted to see what was inside being the techie I am. The SE2500 is powered by a Broadcom BCM53125 chipset (see www.broadcom.com/products/Switching/Home-and-Small-Business/BCM53125 ), which has a thin thermal pad adhered to it to keep it cool. Not a full-fledge heat sink like in D-Link's DGS-1005G (ver.B2), but a thermal pad is better than nothing.

    Compared to other consumer-grade gigabit switches, a one year warranty is kind of short; especially at an MSRP of $54.99. I would expect at least a three year manufacture warranty at the price point Linksys has the SE2500 listed at. This is the prime reason I am taking away two stars from my rating. Otherwise, it is a good buy, even though it is overpriced.

    Comments about Linksys SE2500 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch:

    I bought this switch for my IT services business but got to use it at scout day camp. Most folks laptops didn't have a good enough wifi to capture the signal from the distant router at the fairgrounds. However my Dell 7000 latched right onto the signal. So I connected to the distant wifi, plugged the switch into my laptops Ethernet jack and turned on internet connection sharing on the Ethernet port. The other office folks plugged into the switch and voila we had a connected network!,

    much needed solution

    Comments about Linksys SE2500 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch:

    I find myself needing more Ethernet ports than the standard 4 on my router. Between Satellite TV, all in one printer, Blu-ray player, and network attached storage I was maxed out. I needed a place to plug in my computers that were not on WiFi and my smart TV. Thankfully there is a simple plug and play way to expand the number of Ethernet ports on my home network. It worked like a charm and the setup was simple...just plugged in the power and the Ethernet cables and that was it! The only thing I would do is put additional description on the product name to say this expands the number of Ethernet ports as I did not know what a "switch" was until I contacted Linksys support to find this solution.

    Linksys Help in a Bind

    Comments about Linksys SE2500 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch:

    We recently had a disaster at work. We needed to relocate the engineering offices in a moments notice. I ended up renting a construction office trailer and installing three Linksys SE2500 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switches to support all the users. Lucky staples had these switches in stock.

    The Linksys SE2500 switches ran our Cisco phones with POE adapters just fine. The network speed was decent for the computers and the end users were happy. So when we were in a bind, Staples and Linksys came to our rescue.

    Simple Plug and Play Setup

    Comments about Linksys SE2500 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch:

    Sets up in 2 minutes and works right out of the box. This is as simple as it gets. Plug in the power adapter, plug in an Ethernet cable from the router and plug in up to four more Ethernet devices to expand one router port to 4. Makes a noticeable difference in speed vs. wireless connections for computers, NAS devices, etc.

    this was very easy to use, and setup. however you will need your own ethernet cable, so buy one unless you have them laying around.
