FYI these are "semi" managed so you get stuff like VLANs.
The management interface is pants on head stupid and horribly insecure but for home use it's just fine.
For $25 I can't really complain.
I have a bunch of the 8 ports and they're quite handy.

I might pick up a few 5 ports too for the ISP side of my network.
These are great to pipe multiple modems into my pfSense VM as long as you have 4 or less modems.

Recently needed a switch and just bought a router instead, cheap dir 655 for $20 with gigabit ports, and using it in switch mode. much more useful, since it has wifi and you can use it as a router if you want to.

These have "lite" management capability. You can VLAN and QoS ports along with other things like port mirroring (to monitor traffic).

If it is insecure (and it is), why are you willing to put it on the ISP side?

(I have a few in my cupboard that I don't think are worth the risk of deploying.)

There's not much you can do with the switch even logged in so I don't really care.
Worst case is someone changes my VLANs around.
