Summary: Plug it in and It works... GREAT PRODUCT a++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
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.
Summary: Have been using the 2208 switch in a mixed 100 Mb and 1000 Mb environment at home. Truly PlugNPlay - no setup, detects Gig clients when connected, latency measurements have been in the 1mSec range. Only thing I would improve in the product is to provide a little more spacing between the Ethernet jacks. Using molded cables and once all 8 are populated, the fit is extremely tight -- no impact on functionality through.
Summary: This is the third 2208 in my network. They are great little inexpensive gigabit switches that have helped make my home network hum along nicely. While I wish these were manageable, I would have to spend at least triple the money to get features I would rarely use. You don't need expensive Cat6 cabling to get the advantage of gigabit speeds, either.
