Fast, simple, and fast
You can hook up a lot of gear to this 8-port switch. Rough benchmarking proves it has a very clean signal path 'cause it'll push maximum bandwidth, giving about 112 MBps (1 Gbps). It also detects and manages cross-over cables, so you just plug in your cable and go.

Great little box
Strengths: Inexpensive yet solid switch with VLAN support (and other features that I don't (yet) care about)
Weakness: If it were rackmountable I'd have an excuse to get a wall-mounted mini rack...
This is just great - I was consolidating servers using Xen and trying to figure out how to get enough ports into the box. Now there's no need, and it works a treat.
