        I added the switch to add several A/V pieces into my wired network and it works just as I thought, great. I like the color coding on the lights to show the speed of the connection to the items.

              Comments about Netgear 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch:

              I use this switch as a part of my home theater, so its looks really do matter. Fortunately, its glossy white finish with chrome accent and its modest size make it look right at home next to the rest of my home theater gear. I use the switch mostly to stream live HD video, so throughput really does matter. I found out just how much it mattered the hard way. I previously purchased another maker's gigabit switch to replace a 10/100 switch I had owned for some time, hoping to speed up transfers of large video files. Sure enough, the files transferred much faster, but when I tried to stream video through the switch, the video stream experienced constant hiccups. I ended up having to put back the old 10/100 switch until I could purchase a replacement. With this switch, my file transfer is still fast, and my video streams flawlessly. What else could I ask for?
