great unmanaged switch for home or small business networking!
19 April 2014
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: 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.
Summary: Excellect switch. Couldn't find it in the product description but this unit does come with side brackets to adapt to mounting into a rack environment. Originally thought it might needs a rack shelf to adapt, but not that wasnt the case.
Summary: I ordered one of the 24-port D-link Rack-mount Gigabit switch as part of a project to rack up and centralize my home network and have been very happy with it. One of the questions before ordering this product for me was does it come with the hardware for mounting this inside a standard open frame server/network rack?? I searched high and low and couldn't find the answer to that question. So to save some headache I have the answer for you BELOW.
Summary: Replacing a 12 year old switch with this. Mounted to my rack perfectly (note rack mounts are provided but not rack mounting screws) Totally plug and play. I literally unplugged patch cords from the old switch and plugged them into the new switch. And what a speed difference from my old 100Mb to new 1000Mb switch that all my computer NICs supported.
Summary: Hard to believe, but I am using 22 ports in my house. Four computers, three NAS units, two printers, and a bunch of TVs and Video equipment. After going through several cheap 8-port switches, I bought this unit. Two years and no problems.
