    All pretty much the same, just get a switch not a hub. I'd go for a 8 port hub. Use a netgear myself.

    Need you need gigabit? They're pretty expensive, if you don't need higher speed 100mbs 8 port switches are under £20quid. Or perhaps buy second hand, as others are upgrading to gigabit models.

    wow! those TP Link ones are cracking prices. I am looking at a 16 port and was considering a Netgear model at £120. The TP ones on amazon are about half the price.

    I've installed few of them at customers and they seem OK.
