Customer Reviews of ZyXEL GS105B 5 Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch with Metal Housing & Green Energy Saving Technology
What a deal4/4/2013
Tiny little switch that performs like the big ones. Well packaged with all components intact. Not some dirty leftover sitting on someones shelf, a new clean working model. Have only had it in use for 1 day but works like it is supposed to. Will revert if it fails anytime soon
A box that works2/19/2013
What can I say, its a switch that works. Small, compact in size. Nothing bad about it as it works like it should. Metallic looking and a great price. Note: a switch is better than a hub, so anytime you get a change to buy a low cost switch for the same cost as a hub, go for it.
Solid and Reliable12/7/2011
I've had one of these for over a year and just installed a second one in another room based on that experience. It's been absolutely reliable, so reliable that it's easy to forget it's even there. I also like the solid feel and small size. Note to the reviewer with a problem with this switch: it's a switch, not a router. Try connecting a router to your cable modem and using a switch to extend the network if necessary.
Very good quality switch12/7/2011
If you research the web, you'll find glowing reviews on this switch.
Incompatible or does it just not work well?9/27/2011
I bought one of these from Buy.com but I'm very displeased with it. Perhaps it just isn't compatible with my Comcast cable internet and the Ubee cable modem. Whatever the reason, I can't use more than one computer at a time, and often I have to reset the modem and unplug all the other Ethernet cables in order to get a connection. I've given up on it and will be sending it back. I love the all metal case but what good is it if it doesn't work?
