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

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.
Summary: So I had finally upgraded my Windows XP desktop and my Linux file server so that they both had gigabit network interfaces, but everything was still plugged into a Linksys EZXS88W EtherFast 10/100 8-Port Workgroup Switch , so I wasn't getting any benefit from the faster NICs.
Summary: This switch does exactly what's it'd designed to do. And does it very well. One of the features is power management - automatically shuts down inactive ports to reduce energy consumption. This is supposed to be a good feature but when combined with the same feature on other devices, it becomes bad.
Summary: The only bad thing about this is the power adaptor that doesn't allow for anything else than 110V. Living in Norway I have to convert the voltage myself at an added cost. Almost all appliances bought today have adaptors covering the wide range of 100-240V.
Summary: I purchased this switch to replace a which fried about two weeks out of warranty (the switch died such that the power light would come on but it would no longer recognize ports or pass traffic.
Summary: Have been using this for the past week with 10/100 NICS. (No 1000 NICS around.) For the price, I can't complain and they provide wall mounting instructions/screws. Since it's plastic, it's really light. I notice no heat at all and it's been on 24/7 for a week now.
Summary: The product works fine with my printers (100Mb) and PCs (Gigabit) without the speed dropping to the lowest connection's on all ports. D-link first rejected the rebate request saying the purchase was made outside the offer period (took almost six weeks get this reply).

Summary: I've had two of these in service for over a year and they have performed flawlessly. Data transfer speeds are very good (1Gb transfers in about 30 seconds) and for my application (home networking and LAN parties) the switch is a no-fuss solution.
