If you're installing networking into a new home, you'd probably need multiples of these.

Edit: This is in response to post #12.

Does anyone know if you can daisy chain switches? Perhaps I will plug the 8-port one into the 16-port if it'll work to give me 23 total
You'll have 21 ports available...
1 allocated to the main router, 1 for the downlink to the other switch, 1 for the uplink to the previous switch.

I'm in the exact situation, but I can't figure out why do I want to do this besides saving electricity.

It's also a lot more organized than having two. I have a big switch in the basement, that feeds smaller switches on the other floors. It's nice not daisy-chaining in the same physical room.

This is an awesome deal! I have an 8 port in my home already but if I didn't I would be all over this.

Thanks OP!

why would one need this?
If I didn't already have a bunch of 24s, 16, and 8s I'd buy more.
Wire all the things.

Skys the limit.
Except you get 22 ports because it takes one on each of the 8 and 16. Probably 21 as someone mentioned for the connection to your router too.

Actually for a new home I'd go with either a 24 or a 48.
Shove it in a wiring closet and wire ethernet everywhere.

I use these and 8s at my prewired ethernet ports to add more ports.
I wish I could direct wire everything, but I'd damn near have a patch panel in some walls due to the number of devices.

The local traffic between clients connected to the same switch (Say between PC and NAS) doesn’t congest the rest of the network right? Only congests the clients on this switch?

I had this same issue with GCR and they pointed to this provision:
