Summary: Im on my sencond switch already. The first one died abount 6-8 months after I got it. I RMA'd the device. Got a second one from Dlink. It just died on me 2 weeks ago. About 6 month life span. This PoE Switch is the worst i've seen. Noisy beyond belief and they crash after 6 months.
Pros: I don't know what everyone is complaining about. This will be the 4th switch I've added to my hotel property with a total of 32 DWL-3140AP's. The latest firmware is definitely required to avoid the xmas tree syndrome other posters are talking about.
Cons: Tech support, you guys are the worst. Seriously, I will never call DLink support again. Yes, it is based in the country that rhymes with Lidia, but they wouldn't even talk to me about the last switch I bought because they saw I had purchased the previous three switches over a year ago and flat ou...
Summary: Buy a Netgear or Linksys (Cisco for Small Business) instead. Sure any electronic device can fail, but these are either poorly designed or have cheap components which are prone to failure. Stay away!
Pros: When they work, these are nice switches. All features work as advertised, again, when the switch works.
Cons: HIGH rate of failure! This model seriously should be part of a class-action law suit. 3 of 4 purchased were RMA'd within 6 months. One unit was replaced multiple times. Replaced units worked for varying periods of time.
Summary: This switch is very very bad. Its fans are loud beyond belief. Our company bought our first about a year ago and it failed after 6 months. Now, 6 months after we recieved a replacement for it from D-Link it has failed again. DO NOT BUY!!!!
