    I bought one of those second hand off Ebay in October last year. It did my show with no problems at all. I may buy another as a spare at that price. I used my Ipad to access FPP on the Raspberry PI via wifi from the front yard (and across the street at times). All worked very well.

    They go well for the price as ive used these at work in the conference room as well as ive use them at home and on a few jobs last year. for the money they work well, there are better out there but then they are minimum $120+

    It might support IGMP Snooping, the manual is not clear about it.

    Just did a quick Google search for reviews on this - many are not good reviews. Common complaints are that the unit stops working properly after 1-2 months and needs to be reset (power off - on) every day or so....
    I know it's only $29 delivered but still...
