Summary: This switch runs of 5v/1A power. If that sounds familiar that is because it is what most phone chargers use. I think D-Link missed a big opportunity here. They should have just had a micro-usb power port instead of the old style round power port. So any USB phone charger would power this switch.
Pros: This switch is very tiny. It takes up as little space as possible for an 8-Port switch. I don't think you could make it any smaller.' Transfer speeds were right at gigabit, even with multiple transfers happening at the same time. Setup was easy, just like any other unmanaged switch it is entirely...
Cons: The power port on the side is a little annoying, but really with as small as this switch is I can't complain about it too much. Adding the port to the back would have probably increase the size of the switch just as much as having the cord sticking out the side.
good switch if you can overlook the power socket on the side

Summary: - lights on front, ports on back i include the light & port layout as "other" because for some people it's personal preference and sometimes it just depends on the use-case (on a desk vs in a rack). i didn't realize how compact the switch was until i unboxed it.
Pros: - inexpensive - metal case - different led colors to show link speed - compact (only as wide as 8 ethernet ports) - right-angle power plug to reduce inconvenience of power socket location
Cons: - power socket on side of case is unconventional and marginally increases footprint - light weight causes the switch to slide around the compact size makes the switch light-weight (though somewhat offset by the metal case). this combined with the pull of the ethernet cables in the back ports caus...
Cons: Failed just short of 2 years. No matter where I plug into my system... at end of line, in between even straight into the cable router... my entire network can not connect to internet. Unfortunately past warranty
Summary: This switch replaced another brand that lasted for 10 years. I have not experience any throttling issues related to the "Green" technology. The switch works great, feels really solid. This is a tiny box, but it sure packs a punch! I received this at a discount for my fair and honest review.
Summary: Please everybody stop complaining about the power connection being on the side. Look at the provided pics. It is not hidden. That's what they made cable ties for. If it bothers you that much, tie the power cable to the network cable closest to it and it will tuck away nicely.
Pros: It's an unmanaged switch...It works...Properly detects speeds...Metal construction...Great price.
Summary: Very small, convenient to use, and can be concealed easily in corners since the size is not bulky at all! It gets the job done, although ofcourse this will depend on how fast your connection is. Transferring datas through this has no hassles at all in my experience.
Summary: Very easy to install, just plug it in and it'll have the program ready. No discs needed, though you will need your own cables. I use various things like my Blu ray, computer, ps3 and an Xbox, yes I have quite a few things. Connected just fine, no lags.
Summary: Sorry D-Link you are a Joke! Warning to anyone buying D-Link products make sure to keep everything mounting brackets, screws, manuals, CDs. KEEP EVERYTHING!
Pros: Solid metal seemed sturdy while it lasted.
Cons: Warranty replacement is a joke they want you to send in everything that came with it including the quick install guide which they charge you $5 for if you don't send it back. Who keeps instructions for a dumb switch... Plug it in and done? LAST D-LINK product I will ever purchase between shipping...
