Consumer-grade hardware is explicitly off-topic here, but since this is a more general question: all low and practically all medium-grade switches use store-and-forward switching.
High-performance, low-latency switches often use fragment-free with fallback to store-and-forward on a port where the error rate exceeds a certain threshold. Note that current fragment-free switches support 802.1Q/ad VLAN tagging and can only start forwarding after having received the VLAN tag(s).
Pure cut-through is more or less obsolete.
