I'm talking more about computers. The latest processors, the latest screamingly fast video cards and wireless network speeds going through the roof. However, as great as wireless is (and will be), wired Ethernet is still the way to go if high performance and security are crucial. Currently, most wireless access points top out at around 54-108Mbps. However, there is still some way to go before it reaches Gigabit (1000Mbps) speeds which Gigabit Ethernet can facilitate. In fact, Gigabit Ethernet is fast enough that one can use multiple computers as processing nodes in audio production applications, such as Apple Logic Pro.
However, most of us have mission-critical networks within a workgroup or business. The Linksys SD2008 8-Port 10/100/1000 Gigabit Switch is what we use at Mr.Gadget because of its outstanding performance, value for money and Linksys's reputation for building bulletproof hardware. We've been using it for a little while now and the network is noticeably faster, more reliable and because it's an intelligent non-blocking switch, there are no bandwidth issues as there are when sharing a wireless network between multiple computers.
