Summary: Plug it in and It works... GREAT PRODUCT a++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Summary: Our first product review for Its Geek Time is this nifty gigabit network switch brought to you by D-Link. For years D-link has taken a back seat to bigger companies like Linksys and Netgear for home network equipment. In recent years D-Link has increased their product quality and can contend with the big guys on an equal footing. This switch is a product that proves that. The first thing to note about this switch is it is a gigabit switch with 8 ports for less than $50.
Summary: This switch is, simply put, great. It took longer to unwrap, open, and get the parts out the box than it did to get all my network cables plugged in and movies streaming. I have 5 rooms with ports, so this 8-port switch is just enough to have 5 rooms/wireless router/media center/1 left to spare for another room connection in the basement. I've had this switch running for roughly 2 months now and have had zero problems.
Summary: D-Link makes a Excellent 8-port Gigabit Switch for home use ,light industrial ,or small office. The switch has excellent throughput and work's very well to run 10 / 100 /1000 (gigabit) device's networked together and used after your router,(or connected to your router for device expansion). You can have more than one speed active, (example one device at 100mps and another at 1000mbs,both at the same time with no problems.
Summary: How often do you get a piece of computer gear that requires NO screwing around? This is it. I got two of these to feed more devices on my home network. Within 2 minutes of opening the box, these are up and running. There's no setup. Just plug an ethernet source cord into one of the jacks, and plug devices to be fed into the others. It figures out which is the source, which are the others, and even compensates for long cable runs. Perfect product.
QoS switch wonderful for VOIP, new HW revision even better!

Summary: I brought this switch for one star office six month ago. The QoS feature made the VOIP call so good (work with D-Link VPN router that can set the QoS). So I decided to buy another one from Amazon. This one is even better with improved hardware! I noticed some customers reported the life span only about a year or so from some past reviews.
