Works exactly as advertised. It automatically does its job with no issues.
I needed some Ethernet ports away from the router for a desktop PC, a solar panel monitor, and an Xbox One S and the SE3005 5-port switch was perfect. I wall-mounted right behind my devices. It is not the sort of device that requires any attention but it has been doing its job for the past two months without any issues. The only suggestion I have is to put an LED on the top as well as the side so that it is easier to see it when it is wall-mounted. Great device.
An excellent 5 port switch with strong feature set. First off I like the retro Blue on Black look that matches up with our main WRT 1900acs router and Linksys SE4008 WRT 8-Port. Like that the switch uses IEEE 802.3az technology that allows for less power consumption during periods of low data activity.
The switch has a good hefty feel to it due to metal construction, this I am sure will help manage heat. And what I find Great about the Solid Feel is it does not move around on the desktop like lighter switches.
Easy to setup? Yes it is a switch, plug in your Network connection and wired deices and you are good to go.
Nice touches are the included mounting hardware if you want to mount to a wall or mount behind a desk. Also comes with peel and stick rubber feet pads for use on the desk. The foot pads could use some attention as two of ours lost their adhesive when we peeled them off. Easy fix with a touch of superglue.
We replaced an older E4200 router on my son's desk with the switch, much easier to use, no setup far more efficient networking, uses far less space and looks cooler. Have an older small 5 port Linksys switch which we use with the home entertainment system, have been using it for years with no issues, but I far prefer the new edition.
Highly Recommended. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I got this product wanting to use enthernet ports at full speed. This product lets me use multiple cables at full speed. The only downside is that the AC wall adapter is a little bulky and I would of liked the adapter to be inside the switch.

This purchase (SE3005 5-port) is now serving a desktop computer, an Xbox One S, and a solar panel array monitor. It is a compact unit which I easily mounted on the wall behind the hardware. It comes with rubber feet (unattached) and wall mounting anchors and screws that mate with mounting slots on the bottom of the switch. All connections are firm and I used it to relocate some Ethernet cables away from my router (by about ten feet) to improve the esthetics of my computer area and to free up a couple of ports on the router (EA8300) because that model only has four out gigabit ports.
The SE3005 has five ports and one is used for gigabit in from the router. Any of the five ports can serve this purpose, leaving the remaining four for outputs.
A very well-built device with a metal case. I prefer metal construction to the more fragile plastic used in many devices these days. I am very happy with my new switch and recommend it highly to anyone needing a few more gigabit ports.
