Have an old and a new version!

  • Summary: I now have a pair of these rack mounted in my wiring closet to provide connectivity throughout my house and connected to PCs, NAS boxes, game consoles, etc.
  • Pros: Best switches ever! Both the original and redesigned versions seem rock solid and zero maintenance. I've routinely copied terabytes of data per month up and down from my PCs without any glitches or issues. Since they are fanless, so far it seems like they will last forever. Get yourself one, you'll always need more ports it seems.
  • Cons: Would have preferred a more symmetrical layout of the ports and status lights on the front panel with each of the two status LED right next to and above the actual RJ-45 port like some other switches. But since it just works ALL THE TIME, the status readouts are completely gratuitous.

Nice for the price

  • Summary: These switches made a massive difference in our network throughput - replacing 10-15 year-old 10BaseT switches. I've seen as much as 350Mbps over our CAT5 infrastructure. Plug and play - which is good, because I'm no networking pro; I'm just the most tech-savvy person we have (which isn't saying much).
  • Pros: Small, no-fuss setup, runs reasonably cool.
  • Cons: Apparently, I have to put something in this field, so...well, it didn't make breakfast for me this morning.

zero fan noise

Bob S., Newegg
15 July 2010
  • Summary: I've had one of these in service for several years. I just received another yesterday 7/14/2010. Both are the same model but look slightly different. This new one has NO fan so it has no fan noise. The vent holes in the case are much larger and you can see straight through it. You can see several large heat sinks internally. Presumably this is to allow it to operate without a fan at all... less energy and less noise.
  • Pros: works reliably - low cost
  • Cons: older version used an internal fan that was noisy... latest version (same model number) has better venting and no fan.

Works great !!

  • Summary: I have been using this in a business environment for the last 10 months and have not had to reboot or lost connections even once. I run 3 networked printers and 20 computers and a linux based server. In addition I have 6 shared printers attached directly to 6 of the computers and all computers work great. Good speed even though about half of the computers only have 10/100 cards. I would strongly recommend this switch.
  • Pros: Very easy to hook up, seemless intergration into existing hardware
  • Cons: None after 10 months

Simple Gigabit Switch

Anonymous, Newegg
22 December 2009
  • Summary: Bought this switch to replace an old TrendNet 16 port 10/100 switch that went to the great network rack in the sky earlier this week. Was originally looking at getting another 10/100 switch, possibly with gigabit uplink, but for this price, I couldn't really rationalize getting another 10/100 switch.
  • Pros: -24 ports for less than two C notes
  • Cons: -Not manageable, but for the cost, you can't complain; managed gigabit switches usually cost three to five times as much

  • Summary: This is a great unmanaged head-end switch for serious SOHO users without VLAN needs.
  • Pros: Switch is cheap for the features and does exactly what it says. 9k jumbo frames worked without a hitch. Has never locked up or required a reboot in 3-4 months.
  • Cons: None.

Good product and price

Dean B., Newegg

  • Summary: I have used D-link products for many years now. They continue to provide quality solutions that are reliable at an affordable price. This switch is the largest I've owned (at 24 ports), but surprisingly, is quite small (smaller than an 8.5x11 sheet of paper and it's about 1.5" thick/tall). It comes with rack mount hardware and rubber feet should you decide to go one way or the other.
  • Pros: (1) Gigabit Ethernet; (2) 'green' power technology that D-link states it can save on electricity by only supplying power to ports in use and only supplying the necessary power to send the data signals over the length of the attached cable; (3) small foot print compared to other manufacturer's 24 port switches; (4) PRICE - cheapes I've seen around the Internet and local retail locations; (5) model shipped by newegg was the hardware revision C - one of, if not the most,...
  • Cons: I hesitate to list this here because it's not a bad thing, but should be mentioned none the less. In my home, I had been using a D-Link GB router, 8-Port and 5-Port GB switches. None of them use any type of fan. The DGS-1024D uses an internal fan that's as loud as my power supply on my computer (Antec TP3-550). Be warned, if this is going in your bedroom, warn your wife before hand! Mine wasn't, but the noise is noticable. Why hesitate to mention this as a con? Well, ...
