Reviews and Problems with Western Digital My Net Switch
Showing 1-10 of 66
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. So if you are still on a dial up or only get 5 meg GREAT product.
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. Now swapping the router with my spare involves only 3 cables (vs 6) Switch has worked flawlessly for half a year, though it tends to run a little warm.
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. When plugged in the adapter wiggled so much that the power cut in and out.
A welcome addition to a home network for media devices

Summary: Wonderful idea for a home network switch. The high traffic ports, medium and lower traffic ports are a nice way to control network traffic and not need a higher end switch. I have connected this switch to my router in one of the high traffic ports directly, used the other high port for an extender on my wireless network (Airport Express) and the medium other ports for an Apple TV, PlayStation, satellite receiver, and audio receiver.
Summary: The switch itself is fine, however I spent an hour on amazon chat asking why when I buy something from a US company, shipped from the US to the US, do I need to adapt to the domestic Power outlet? This thing ships with the UK power adapter, with a US adapter that makes it stick out like 4 inches from the wall. Amazon assured me that it must have been the reseller "Dreamcoil"'s fault. However I contacted them and they said it was Western Digitals doing.
Summary: This switch came packaged with a European (220v) power adaptor. The adaptor is huge. And it includes an additional plug adaptor that must be used in combination with the European power adaptor to plug it in in the US. This makes is very difficult to use with a standard powerstrip. The seller's description makes no mention that this product is intended for the European market and is being sold in the US market.
Works good for the price! Check the power adapter you receive compatible!!

Summary: Working great for the price! The first one came with a Hong Kong Style Power Adapter and not alternative to work on USA power connections. (Reason for 4 Stars) -- Amazon took care of it and sent me a new one with no problem! (Love Amazon - 5 Stars for them!
Summary: This is the first time that I'm using a switch, I bought it to use in my home, I saw a lot of models and finally I selected two of them, honestly I had my doubts because I never heard that Western Digital make switch and finally I decided for the comments, the price and how looks. Item was received in a nice and sealed box, no scratches, no service manual, and with an white horrible and uncomfortable A/C power adapter.
