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: 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.
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.
Pros: Great switch. Has worked great and great price.
Cons: Switch has run great for the last 3 years, but it just started with problems a few days ago. Found that the ports 1-8 have failed and are dead. The remaining ports will connect to devices but it will not connect to the internet which I have connected on another port. I contacted D-Link and have r...
Summary: Bought this in order to hardware our home and office. Current using 14 of the ports (running Cat 6 to 2 offices, 1 bedroom, living room, wireless AP, and security system. ) I have plenty of room to expand our network and our capabilities on the hardware side of things.
Pros: 24 ports (flexibility) , small, Gigabit capable.handles large amounts of traffic. Reliable, runs 24/7 365 without a hiccup.
Cons: Indicator lights are located on the side of the unit, not above or below the ports. This is a con for me due to where the switch is located and that in order to see the lights the ports need to be facing out... which has created a little more of a cluttered feel in the server closet.But it's mino...
