Summary: I purchased this used back in 07, (v3.0) and it still like a champ. Much like the WRT54g router, they've been around for over a decade and still run perfectly. They're like the '60 Chevy of networking gear.
Pros: I used mine in a college house utilizing all 8 ports for PC's, laptops, and consoles pretty much day and night and never had so much as a hiccup from the unit. Now lives out a quiet life at my workstation managing my PC and Xboxes.
Cons: 1. All these years and they still don't make them with mounting holes. Had to rig up my own with a block of wood and zip ties when I finally freed up the desk space and got sick of moving it to vacuum the floor. 2. Personally I think the price point is a little steep for just 10/100 speed
Summary: It's a Linksys, and it's been VERY Reliable. Have used it now for about the past 6 months. Glad I got this larger expanded version, as I had been using the 5 port one's for a while. Always great to have the extra ports when you need'em.
Summary: All the ports worked well for about 2 years, then the one I used as the incoming (#1) stopped working. I did all the troubleshooting and ended up switching the incoming cord to port #2, and it seems to be working fine that way. So I only lost 1 port after 2 years, which might be normal.
Summary: Linksys always makes good quality networking equipment. Until recently, Linksys had ties to Cisco. As having my Cisco Certification (along with other Certs) and working in networking all my life, I like having LEDs flashing while indicating network activity.
Summary: I like this switch. It's working fine and I like that each connection point has three little lights to show activity and speed. Sad that these are being replaced by ones with only one light for each connection point.
Summary: I have several other Linksys switches so I decided to pick this one up. I have never had a problem w/ any of my Linksys switches; however, this one was another story. At times my printers would see it and at times they would not.
