Some advanced options, not some basic ones

Kevin C., Newegg
17 January 2015
  • Summary: Smart but lacking
  • Pros: Lots of advanced options with VLANs so you can separate traffic. The ability to setup port mirrors was unexpected.
  • Cons: I was surprised to find it was missing some very basic smart switch features. The device has no SNMP statistics and you cannot enter a description on a port. I had assumed that these two very basic things would be included on any smart switch. But since I won't be doing any VLANs anytime soon and...

Great deal!

Jeffrey G., Newegg
10 May 2014
  • Pros: I got this when it was on sale for under 2 bills, and it was a great buy. I've got a lot of devices, enterprise grade firewall, multiple computers, home server, etc. and the port-based vlan feature works great to clean up some cables and easily put devices outside my firewall just by switching po...
  • Cons: Haven't found any so far, been up and running for over 30 days with zero stability issues and it's barely warm to the touch.

Great Switch for the Price

Gabriel G., Newegg
31 December 2013
  • Summary: Overall, for the price, this is a great switch. Fan-less quiet operation and low power consumption. Most managed switches are considerably more expensive. For a home or small office, this is great. If you need SNMP look elsewhere.
  • Pros: Great price for such a feature-filled managed switch.
  • Cons: No snmp, so you can't integrate it with MRTG, or other SNMP gathering tools.

great price and feature-set, braindead user interface

Mike M., Newegg
30 November 2013
  • Summary: If it's the only switch in your network, you can't beat the price and the warts will be tolerable. It costs the same as a few 5-port dumb switches and is better than that setup in every way.
  • Pros: Good value for the price. Simple to set up. Runs cool. Front panel is thoughtfully laid out.
  • Cons: Switch came with newer firmware (1.10.011) than is on D-Link's website (1.10.005). Good for me, tough luck for anyone with an older switch, and when a newer version is released I guess I'll be going without. No jumbo frames. Doesn't seem to matter at gigabit speeds anyway. No console port. If you...

great gigabit switch

Glenn H., Newegg
27 August 2013
  • Summary: Our company has many D-Link products from switches to NICs and all their products are always quality made and last a long time.
  • Pros: 16-gigabit ports, manageable network switch. Price, quality, speed, lifetime warranty - extremely great product for replacing older 10/100 Mps switches..
  • Cons: Switch was set to it's own class-A IP address that could only be changed by connecting a device directly to the switch, like a notebook, that used the same class-A addressing scheme. Most network devices are defaulted to public class-C IP addresses like This is a minor point and only...

Could be Happier

Craig S., Newegg
4 August 2013
  • Summary: I have a Synology connected to port 1. This weekend I started having issues with the Synology dropping pings. I ended up switching to port 2 and all is good again. In my case, it took only 7 months for the switch to start failing.
  • Pros: Easy to setup. Nice interface. Fast transfers.
  • Cons: No jumbo frames. Port failure.
