Overheating Problem! Lasted less than a week.

Jacob medley, Amazon
29 July 2015
  • Summary: I purchased this from the Linksys store. It arrived quickly, setup was quick and easy. That is where the good ended. Almost immediately I began to notice the switch was getting hot. I thought nothing of it initially, but less than a week into using this device, it stopped working.

  • Summary: We've purchased 4 of these switches for our Cat 5e gigabit Ethernet house... and they have ALL failed after only 2 years! First indication is one or more ports suddenly not working.

Do not buy this.

SMR, Amazon
4 January 2011
  • 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.

SD2008 worst ever?

Helen Varsos "DV", Amazon
9 January 2010
  • 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.

Get a D-Link instead

Smartest Shopper Ever "Smartest Shopper Ever", Amazon
20 March 2009
  • 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.

Garbage-Died after 6 months

Jeffrey F. Stuckey "stucarius", Amazon
18 March 2009
  • 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.
