This Cisco switch could have easily received a 5 star review from me had it ...

Buskah, Amazon
16 August 2014
  • Summary: This Cisco switch could have easily received a 5 star review from me had it lasted 2-3 years. However port #3 went bad after only 11 months. I have to admit that I'm clueless as to the construction of electronics so I can't even begin to guess exactly which component failed. But I do know that the port that failed is the one that my wife's laptop was plugged into, and she only uses her laptop to visit Facebook 2 or 3 times each week so it couldn't have gotten much use.

Bad product, and worse Cisco customer service

Jason Yang "Jason", Amazon
4 September 2012
  • Summary: Like other reviewers have experienced, this product died on me: download speed went from 10 mbps to 0.4 mbps. Sure, it is covered with limited life time warranty, but speaking from my experience, Cisco's customer service is even worse than its product. It took me about an hour to go through the whole ordeal (online chat with Cisco's CS David W*, who's badge id is c6346154). Cisco's CS asked me questions like "what is your network topology?

Cause of packet loss

Steve, Amazon
12 October 2011
  • Summary: I'm an instrumentation repair technician for a large environmental laboratory. The IT department replaced one of these switches because it had terrible packet loss(the metal shell type) and i snagged it up. The more i can learn about hardware failure modes, even on something as cheap as a network switch, the better i can perform my job. I disassembled the switch to discover that it has what is commonly known as "capacitor plague" so this one did not teach me anything.

Don't buy this

no, Amazon
16 March 2011
  • Summary: I've had the same problems as everyone else. After a few months, my connection dropped constantly. When it did work, my connection to my computers were 10mbps or 100mbps. At first I thought it was a problem with my gigabit cards, then I started swapping in new cables. As soon as pulled my headless computers from where they were to test on a monitor (my TV), they magically had full gigabit speeds. I never expected a 4-month-old switch to go bad.

Great Value!

rgoddu, Amazon
11 February 2011
  • Summary: After reading some of the horror stories on earlier Cisco Home Network switches, I must admit, this one worked exactly as I would have expected a Cisco product to work. My only negative is that it was "Made in China". This tends to raise a red flag with me that higher profits are more important than world class quality. Most of us IT folks rely on solid Cisco "iron" at work and would expect nothing less on our home networks.

Cisco SD2005 5 Port Gb Switch

Henry Bove, Amazon
27 January 2011
  • Summary: This is a great product. It has worked flawlessly right out of the box, and for over 3 months now. It is a dramatic speed up over the Linksys Gb switch that it replaced. I highly recommend it.
