    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.

    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.

      Only one CON, it's bright. There is no way to turn off the indicator light. So if you plan to use this in your room then I suggest you use electrical tape to cover up the green light.
