  • Summary: I added this switch to my network since I have a few devices that are Gb capable, and I don't regret it in the least. The unit was so simple to set up, as it should be (just plug it in and go) and I was moving huge batches of digital photos between systems with ease and speed.
  • Pros: Simple to use, fast performance.
  • Cons: I'd just be making it up.

  • Cons: Unstable jumbo frame support

  • Summary: Before connection this one between the router and all 3 work stations, all my work stations have pre-set IP address. After insert this switch, PC shows connection to switch, but not intranet or internet. I had to set all PC back to auto for TCP/IP to get it work.
  • Pros: everything automatically, no setup needed.
  • Cons: hard to specify each workstation

25 June 2007
  • Summary: This little hub has a few advantages: it does auto sensing from 10 to 1000 MHz, it automatically corrects for wires (thru vs. crossed). Unfortunately, the "new" version, v.3, is the only one you can find new and has a few drawbacks: 1- It is not the form factor pictured on this site or on many of...
  • Pros: Auto sensing 10/100/1000
  • Cons: Not the form factor pictured, not stackable with other Linksys equipment, no feedback on the actual connection speed.

26 January 2005
  • Summary: The network is no longer a bottleneck, now its my hard drives. Went from taking 3 minutes to transfer 2GB from one computer to another down to 40 seconds. This was a breeze to setup. Just plug everyhting in and it works. Someone said it was noisy in another review. Not True.
  • Pros: Gigabit is fast. Easy to septup. Stacks with other Linksys products.
  • Cons: Doesn't seem to have all the features of some of the competitor products, however I'm not sure why I would need them.
