Bought this in October of 2015 for use in my home office. It lasted until December 2016 before dying. I had it connected to my router, doling out IPs to two computers, and a host of smart home hubs. For a home setting, I'd say it was under a fair amount of use. We have a high speed fiber connection, a NAS, Hue bulbs, Sonos, etc. but lasting a little more than a year is pretty bad.
I've bought several of these over the past few years. I use them in both my home and my office as I prefer a wired internet connection whenever possible. These are totally easy to use and I have never had a problem with them. Like a refrigerator,you just plug them in and they work. Shouldn't all technology be that easy?
I had terrible luck with this. I bought it to replace a smaller switch on stable network. When I swapped it in all of my devices reported they couldn't communicate with it. Not only that but the existing equipment got so scrambled everything on the network had to be rebooted multiple times and the wifi and the old switch both had to be reset to factory before the network stabilized once I swapped it back in.
