I ended up buying the rack ears for the TRENDnet switch (TEG-S16Dg) and these worked great.

Summary: Well, I've had this for 5 years now and ports are starting to die. So far 3 ports don't work. Supposable the DGS-1024D has a limited lifetime warranty. I contacted D-Link Tech Support over a week ago for an RMA but so far they are ignoring me.
great unmanaged switch for home or small business networking!

Summary: great product, deffinitely holds up the d-link name well. plug and play setup for basic unmanaged networking and cooperates well with other branded hardware. no conflicts and flawless operation.
Summary: Great switch, I wired my entire house (16 ports currently in use). Were I to wire a clients house I would use this switch.
Pros: Lots of ports, handles high amounts of traffic, doesn't seem to get too hot. If you're serious about being able to run intensive items with ease on multiple devices this will not disappoint.
Cons: Perhaps the only con might be the indicator lights that are to the side of the ports. I'm used of a traditional 2 light setup right above the port, so at a quick glace you can see which port is down without any question about which port it is.
Summary: No problems with the switch in use, I would purchase another if needed.
Pros: Getting decent Gbit speeds in my home network, fits well in my StarTech 12 rack. Needed a small rackmountable switch for my home network to wire up my rooms to a central closet. So far so good, been running 24/7 without having to power cycling, except when I needed to power down everything in the...
Cons: The screws for the rack elbows that attach to the switch, seem a little weak. I was using extra caution to avoid stripping the screws, but some of them just did not easily screw in. I'm thinking it may have been the screw holes were not exact.
Pros: After ports died, replacement was shipped promptly
Cons: Not a good product. First one I bought had 3 ports go bad within 1 year. The replacement they sent me was an updated model, and it already has 1 port bad. I've had cheaper 24-port switches for many years with no ports going bad. Avoid this product.
Summary: I keep them in a clean, ventilated cool (not air conditioned) office, mounted in a 2 post rack. They have always been connected to a surge protector running into a UPS, so they have had stable power their entire life. If would recommend and purchase these again.
Pros: I run 4 of these in medical billing office of about 26 people, printers, and all using voip phones. I have two of the older generation (better light layout) and 2 of the newer gen. The older ones I have had for over 3 years, and every port on all 4 still work great.
Summary: Currently running two of these in our small business server room. These run much cooler than the old Dell switches they replaced. Great transfer speeds with no hassles. Hope to have them for the long term.
