Summary: If you have this thing in a closet somewhere, and don't care about the lights on the front, then this is ok, but I have it on my desk, and like to see what machines are heavily using traffic, and what machines are not. It works very well for traffic, but the L.E.D.
Summary: My router went out and I needed a multi-port router replacement. This one fills the bill nicely. It adapted itself to my network and it is happy as a clam as is my network. My only complaint might be size.
Summary: Had the product for only a day so durability is not part of my rating. Setup is pretty easy, just plug in your cables, and plug it in. It appears to be fanless (at least I can't hear a fan), and the power supply is internal (no brick). Speeds are Gigabit range from my informal file transfer tests.
Summary: If there had been the wall space, I would have been able to mount this by turning the rack mount ears 90 degrees and using them to screw it down to the ply. Unfortunately, there wasn't... but that's no fault of the switch. It serves a basic function, and what more can you ask of a 10/100 switch?
Pros: Gets full 1000 Mbps throughput Doesn't draw much power at all if you are only using a few ports Rack mount ears are convenient, but can sit on a shelf etc. Integrated power supply, no wall wart to deal with
Cons: The lights on the front are laid out a bit odd
Summary: I bought a pair of these switches for my younger brother so he could host a LAN party. They were hooked up to a D-Link DGL-4500 gigabit router; 2 dedicated servers we had were hooked up to a D-Link DGS-2208 gigabit switch off the router (with a few Xboxes), and all of the guests computers were...
Summary: When my home network got too big, I decided to wall mount a Cat6 patch panel and 1gb router (see my other reviews). This has been working without problems since I installed it in my home network September 2008.
Summary: It has a standard PC power cord and the Power Supply is internal... This means a fan. If you want this as a SOHO switch, think about the constant fan noise in that room. Think about a small bathroom vent fan, almost as loud. The smaller D-Link 8 port Green one is silent.
