I have my TV mounted above my fireplace, and didn't want wires from my cable box and other components sticking out all over the place (and didn't feel like investing in a mantle to hold them!). These work perfectly. Granted, the components are only about 6 feet away, but the picture is crystal clear in HD. The only thing I'm struggling with is the IR so that the remote signal carries to the components when my media cabinet is closed, but it's not the end of the world. It seems a bit finicky, but I'll either figure it out, or keep the door open when I'm lounging.
TP-LINK TL-SG1024D 10/100/1000Mbps 24-Port Gigabit 13-inch Rackmounta Cons: This did not fit into a normal 6" deep rack (punch down rack) so I had to wall mount it. Does not affect air flow, just looks a bit different. Looking at a 12" deep 6u rack to update my network area. Other Thoughts: Great switch, replaced my 16port TP-Link switch, was plug and play. Is 1.5" deeper than the 10/100 it replaced but still runs quietly, cool and without a fan. I also like that it does not use a "brick" type power adapter. Simplifies the wiring closet and makes use of a standard PC power cord, I used a 90 degree to adapt it to my wiring layout, but a straight plug works as well. Just know that it is 7.1" deep without power cord, so make sure to add that into your rack mount equations.
