Summary: Plug it in and it works. Simple. Negotiates all individual port speeds separately so happily handles combination of gigabit / 100Mb. Haven't had an issue with it running hot as previously reported (in fact it's stone cold with 7 ports running). Overall speed gigabit - gigabit with jumbo frames is only averaging out at 200Mb in practice. Apparently it's reported that this is typical for this switch? Still neat switch though and would get another.
Summary: After the usual prompt delivery from Dabs, I plugged in the switch:fast no problems, worked out of the box, and has continued to work without problem for some time. I am gradually replacing all my network boxes with these D link products.
Summary: a pretty efficient, easy to use switch, a good choice for connecting at great speed your network and all network devices such as external hard drive or printer. Can be use for business purpose but mostly sold for home use since it's only 8 ports.
Summary: My networks now got three of these on it. They worked straight out of the box, but... after using them for a while I found that they do run a little bit on the warm to hot side. Normally you would have these in a horizontal position but I'd recommend you stand these up vertically to aid heat dissipation.
Summary: Bought one of these when I added a NAS to my network and it is great. Quick and easy to set up. Fast in operation. Quiet (well, no moving parts so it should be). Cool (I have it sat on the carpet and make no allowances for airflow but it runs cool anyway). Plug it in, turn it on, connect your devices and you're up and running.
Summary: Prompt arrival, no damage to packaging, easy installation, easy registration with D-Link, whats not to love. I haven't yet done any through-put tests but superficially it looks as good as expected!
Summary: Plug in and go, it's as easy as that, i've got three of these linked together to send to 24 ethernet sockets around the house on cat6, streaming hd, no loss or freezing. I haven't had any power supply problems, but if it happens then you can get better power supplies from maplin.
