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: 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".
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.
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.
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??
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...
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.
