Summary: Cisco Linksys SD208 8-port 10/100 Switch. Connected my PS3, Xbox360, directtv, TV to computer,TV, granddaughter PC, and my extender for my bedroom TV. NO MORE WIRELESS slow connections. Connected everything itself. Next will be my refrigerator. Highly recommended.
Summary: I have deployed several of these switches in a large environment. This series of switch has proven reliable everywhere we have deployed them. For a small, unmanaged switch it seems to be the best choice available. Crossover detect is becoming a more common feature, and is a real time saver. I have also seen this switch overcome cabling deficiencies where other "mini-switchs" have failed.
Summary: After years of using a 10/100 hub I decided to "upgrade" to a switch. Expecting a good product from Linksys, especially since they were acquired by Cisco, I purchased the SD208 8-port 10/100 switch. I put it on my network and the problems began. Any time I would attempt to transfer large volumes (1GB+) of data between two of my PC's the switch would freeze up on me and I'd have to unplug it and plug it back in to regain network connectivity.
Summary: I had two of these fail in the last week. Both are about a year old. The first one has a couple of ports that stopped working, and the second completely died overnight. They're plugged into UPS's, so power surges didn't cause the problem. I'm really dissapointed!
