Simple to set up, no software or configuration required, just plug in, attach cables and you are up. So far works as advertised, been installed for 3 weeks, long term reliability will have to prove out.
Rebate is a bit of extra overhead.
This is a great little switch. Needed to hook up 2 computers to only one Ethernet cable and this split it up flawlessly. I would recommend this over running new wires as it is a lot cheaper to do. The switch has 5 ports and you can hook up a lot of computers to it.
