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: 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: It's a really good switch. It's low power and has no fan. The status lights are good, indicating which ports are 1G vs 10/100 with a quick glance. I did see a review where the author said the layout of the status lights was a little strange, and that's true. The layout/sequence of the ports compared to the layout/sequence of the status lights is a bit difficut to correlate - D-Link could have done a better job arranging the ports.
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.
Great FANLESS switch - updated from what Amazon shows

Summary: I just ordered one of these as part of a project to rack up and centralize my home network. Prior to this I had several switches in my basement daisy chained together. With this new D-Link switch I was able to rack this up with some nifty vertical rack arms and in conjunction with a 24 port patch panel and rack cable organizer get everything very nicely organized. The Amazon description for this switch is out of date.
