Summary: I bought 2 of these and while they worked as I expected a switch should work for the first couple of months I started noticing that my machines were displaying network connection / reconnection messages all the time.
Summary: Had this switch since early March. Resets about once or twice a day. Not good with VPN connections. The case is very hot and I feel that is contributing to the problem. Called support, got India of course. When it does work, it is quite fast. Using with a mix of broadcom and dlink gigE NICs.

The switch reboots (dropping existing connections) when there is an A/C line voltage dip -- for example, a sag due to turning on a high load device like a laser printer warming up or a 'fridge turning on elsewhere on the s...
Summary: I bought this switch because I did not see many comments about over heating like there are for some of the other 1GB switches so I was disappointed when it started overheating on a regular basis. Worked without issue in my basement where it was cooler.
Pros: Small, quiet, decent throughput.
Cons: I used this in a conference room for three days. During each day it would eventually get too hot and start dropping ports for an instant (just long enough to drop VPN sessions and cause network disconnect messages to pop up) then come right back. I ended up replacing it on the third day to elimin...
Summary: der Switch an sich ist ja ganz nett anzusehen, klein und kompakt. Aber was gar nicht geht, das Ding ist ja aus Kunststoff, und wenn er in Betrieb ist, leuchtet das ganze Gehäuse wie ein Christbaum.
Summary: keine Ahnung ob es eine nicht abschaltbare Stromsparfunktion ist oder nicht, ich habe jedenfalls laufend Probleme damit gehabt. Seit Umstellung uf einen TP-Link läuft wieder alles wie geschmiert, außerdem sehr billiges Plastikgehäuse
