Failed just under 6 years, but worked really well until failure.

Ben B., Amazon

  • Summary: This switch worked well for all of my uses, including all-day an all-day VPN connection for work and streaming video on multiple other links at the same time (e.g. Hulu, Netflix, ESPN, etc.). Most often, only 1-3 links used at a time. Never had any problems or complaints until the day it died.

Flawless, almost

MATTHEW M., Newegg

  • Summary: Worked great for over year until I invited my brother in law to a LAN party. Couldn't find the DC power supply for the device for 2 minutes. I went into the garage and found it. Came back to "Oh it's cool this other power supply fits in there and it works now".
  • Pros: Works great, was faster than my old switch.
  • Cons: None, maybe

Cheap power supply

Alexandru I., Newegg
16 March 2011
  • Summary: I've had mine for about a year until the power adapter stopped working. Bought another power adapter (same part number as the original) it died in a few months too. This time I ordered two so I have a spare when it happens again.
  • Pros: Cheap, low power consumption, runs cold
  • Cons: Cheap power adapter. No jumbo frames.

Excellent Router

Justin D., Newegg
26 December 2010
  • Pros: Excellent router. All my browsing has increased. No security issues, easy user config. If you are on the fence about buying this router get it, I plan on getting another to have for friends.
  • Cons: They should update firmware more often I know they could come on.

Great Down-n-Dirty Gig-Ethernet

Amazon Customer, Amazon
25 December 2010
  • Summary: Works as advertised. For a home, non-managed gigabit switch, it gets the job done. Transfer rates between mutually gigabit devices was about where it should be. Great value for the money.

  • Cons: There aren't enough consumer level 8 port switches.

Excellent product

Michael B., Newegg
6 October 2010
  • Summary: There's no designated uplink port, so it's really for all intents and purposes a 7 port switch. I had another blue colored switch from a different company that the ports were on the front of the switch.
  • Pros: - Lights on the front, ports in the back - it's a Gigabit Switch - it works great, no problems so far
  • Cons: - it's a bit lightweight - it seems to be finicky with certain CAT6 cables that I have used Wish it was a bit heavier so that I didn't have to screw this down. Once you add the weight and pull of the cables if you're moving a cable sometimes it falls off my desk.

MAC Address???

Mathew L., Newegg
1 October 2010
  • Summary: I use network filtering from my D-Link DIR-655. I bought this switch because my old one died(same model but A1 revision). This new revision gets blocked by my router and the MAC address is no where to be found(I've temporarily disabled my filter).
  • Pros: Works fine. Cheap
  • Cons: Ummmmm, you hoooo! MAC Address where areeeee you??

8 port switch

Michael C., Newegg
22 September 2010
  • Summary: I am happy with the product and the performance. I would recommend it.
  • Pros: No issues so far. The switch runs and does it quietly. its small and unobtrusive. 8 ports of gb goodness.
  • Cons: no management of the switch. no jumbo frame support (more of a gripe than anything else as most my network devices dont support jumbo frames). That you have to use one of the 8 ports as an uplink port thereby only having 7 free ports to hang devices off of. This isnt limited to the D-Link just so...

Make sure it's version D!!

Aaron M., Newegg
21 August 2010
  • Summary: Newegg Rocks!
  • Pros: When the switch arrived all I had to do was plug and play. Instant local network speed of 1000 Mbps. Note that I received version D of this switch. That's important because I didn't experience any of what other customers mentioned about having devices connect at 100 Mbps. And then the lightning s...
  • Cons: Maybe - If you are among us that like to manage all of your network devices, this is not the switch for you. It is plug and play, wich means less time for you to do anything, but also means any network configuring is going to be done on some other device such as your router or client.
