Managed and Unmanaged Ethernet Switches

I need to connect two devices where I have only one available ethernet socket, so am thinking of getting an ethernet switch. However some are described as managed and some unmanaged. What is the difference and when might I need a managed switch?

Network admin staff rely on managed switches to control large-scale networks - such as those used in big businesses. You don't need a managed switch so save your money and buy an unmanaged one.
