Summary: I purchased this unit for a remote area of our offices to replace an older 100Base-T unit. It slowed the area to a crawl. Testing showed that traffic was flowing at 1/3 the speed of the old unit.
Summary: I bought this SD2008 switch and I had trouble from the beginning. Connected PC with gigabit eithernet, Linkstation with gigabit port, and a couple of other laptops. Could not get all to connect to my router. Very weird. I got it only to work with only 2 devices, at 100MB, so I just let it be.
Summary: This product was noisy and worked for a few days but then failed. I was able to return it no problem. I've replaced it with a D-Link DGS-2208 8-Port 10/100/1000 Desktop Switch and I have to say the difference is amazing. The D-Link doesn't have a fan, so it is completely silent.
Summary: This thing is junk. A real shame that Cisco came along and ruined a good SOHO company. Runs really really hot, I even used a fan blowing on it but it still died. It also constantly dropped and locked after about 2 mo. of service.
Summary: The Linksys SD2008 switch (v2.2) has failed twice. The first time happened within warranty and was replaced with a remanufactured / refurbished unit. The replacement failed, this time out of warranty.
