solid build and quiet switch = happy chappy

Advantages: small compact size, metallic body, passive cooling=no noise
Disadvantages: gets a bit hot during summer

Well there isn't much to say about this switch. I've bought 4 of these and they are all working fine. This is basically the big brother of the FS108 switch. The FS108 is 100mb Full duplex switch (full duplex meaning it can send and receive data at the ...

No time to queue.

Advantages: Well-Made, Fast as Hell.
Disadvantages: None.

Disadvantages: Can be a bit of a pain when it comes to the power supply.

The centre of everything

Advantages: Plug and play as it should be, cool design
Disadvantages: None

At last a computer product that does what it says it does and works the way it is supposed to! I was sceptical to say the least about USB (universal serial bus) ports when they first started to appear on computer systems. Windows promised the era of ‘p ...
