Cant go wrong with WD

Summary: As with all my other WD products, this works just like it should. We bought this to upgrade our church network to a Bigabit system. Quick and easy to install, no software needed. You cant go wrong with WD.
Summary: Out of the box it was very easy to set up. It tested speed and everything seems to work completely plug and play. I didn't realize that this was an old product. When I registered with Western Digital it said warranty already expired - what is that? That is why I knocked off one star.
Summary: My TV wasn't getting fast enough speeds over WiFi to stream HD content, so I decided to hard-wire it, along with my other equipment. All I had to do was run one cable from the router to the switch, and my TV, Bluray player, Stereo receiver, NAS (with music, photos, and a few videos on it), and a DVR...
Beautiful Design with Ugly Asian Plug Configuration

Summary: These seem to work great. I bought two. After installing these with a new gigabit router/modem our speeds doubled on our network. In order to get those speeds I did have to replace a few patch cords which were CAT5. It is interesting that the new gigabit modem came with a CAT5 ethernet cable.
Summary: I ordered this switch not realizing that it utilized port-based QoS. After I received and installed it, I was slightly disappointed. The instructions were lacking in regards with how to properly integrate it into my network. The instructions I found online said to plug my router into the "low" port.
Can't complain, it was cheap, but nowhere near gigabit.

Summary: I noticed local file transfers taking a bit to initiate, and the overall throughput with iperf maxed out at like 300 mbps w/ 64kb tcp-window. I switched this out with a HP 1410 and my iperf test moved the needle to 500 mbps with 64kb tcp-window.
Great for slow or moderate speed, limiting if you have great bandwidth and can't utilize it.

Summary: Watch out, it appears that only two ports provide Gigabyte throughput. I get slow devices, medium and data hogs but i get between 150 to 200 megs a second from my cable provider. I wish i could undo what appears to be nothing more than throttling more than half of the ports.
Summary: I had an Acer router that I suspected of being on the fritz, and I needed more than the 4 GigE ports it had on its LAN side anyway, so I bought this switch and moved all the hardwired device connections to it. Also got my network printer off the wi-fi.
The only switch(es) you need for any home or small business use. Price is amazing!

Summary: Guys... I cannot stress enough how awesome these little switches are. They have built in QoS with ZERO CONFIGURATION. The price is amazing, and I have 2 of these running. I will buy more when I run out of ports. I've noticed no lag, and have had no problems at all. Very happy.
AC adapter was an overseas model with a US adapter that fit poorly.

Summary: Bought this switch for my network. Unpacking it I was confused since the ac adapter was clearly for overseas. There was an adapter included that fit over the prongs so that it could be used in the US. Unfortunately this made the prong end of the ac adapter about three inches long.
