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.
Cons: There are now 3 ports dead on the switch after just 2 years of use. I've had other switches that cost $50 less last much longer with no problems. Very disappointed, given the premium paid. My $100 TrendNet TEG-S24DG was cheaper and so far has no dead ports.
Summary: I purchased this unit for our small office and was very happy with it until it died unexpectedly this morning after what I consider a too-short life of 18 months. Only a few months after we bought it one of the ports went bad, but with 23 others to choose from I didn't care that much.
Summary: I bought this to replace a pair of 8-port switches. The price was great and the fanless design was definitely a plus. However, once received and wired into the network I found that the switch would not allow DHCP packets through.
Summary: Wouldn't have stung so much if it wasn't partially faulty from the start, but as I wasn't using for mission critical stuff, I didn't bother to complain about it.
Pros: 24 ports, all gigabit, and fits great in the Rack yay
Cons: Through half the 2 1/2 years I've had it, it's worked, but would pass packets slowly, and a few errors. After these 2 1/2 years, it died altogether and stopped passing packets all together. When I called for a warranty the company wanted it to be shipped back as though it was fully packaged from ...
Requires semi-frequent reboots in small office environment

Summary: Our office used this switch since it was a cheap, gigabit switch that did not require a fan (read: quiet). We pass around a decent amount of data and this switch turned out to be very unreliable. Sometimes, it would hang and no traffic would get through.
Summary: This switch wont allow computers to get DHCP address any longer and is dropping about 70% of packets. It seemed like a good switch up until it DIED now it sits there and blinks at me. back to my 2 little 8 port switches until i can get my RMA done.
Pros: while the switch worked it was quick, quiet and cool.
Cons: Started Killing ports 28 days after install. DEAD 32 days after install
Summary: Ive had this unit for about 3 months and Im contantly having to reboot it to recognize all my tech. I have 3 Blu-ray players, 3 computers, 2 NAS, an XBOX, and 2 HD-DVD players...all connected to this switch. Only the computers run Gigabit.
Summary: Habe gerade zwei Stück davon auf dem Tisch. Bei beiden ist das interne Netzteil hinüber (zischende Geräusche, liefert nicht mehr genug Strom). Das Netzteil ist von D-Link zugekauft und irgendein Chinafabrikat (NAD-116 YCL) und nicht in der "lifetime warranty" enthalten.
