Something is changed about the product for the better

Bill Ing, Amazon
21 June 2012
  • Summary: I've got 4 of them, 2010-2011. Running 1-2 years without issue and not running hot. One of them sits in an octal colo cabinet that is in a warm environment as well. Perhaps there was a change somewhere even though nothing on the switch to indicate a different version number.

Best Switch with stable connection

Victor Lee, Amazon
15 November 2011
  • Summary: My house with all gigbit network cable around and use this to split for all my devices (TV, DVD Player, Hi-Fi, 3 desktops and 2 laptop). The connections never drop and I am able to experience high speed of file transfer between computers. Very reliable product.

Ok, until it comes to muticasts...

anstein, Amazon
30 July 2011
  • Summary: In general, for IPv4 and IPv6 unicast the switch is ok. But be aware that when it comes to multicast the switch is broken in in a variety of ways: IPv6 Multicast 1 port in, all other ports out, no snooping, no nothing. IPv4 IGMPv2: The "Leave" report is "successfully" suppressed by the switch.

Good value switch, but has its limits

Xipper, Amazon
16 May 2011
  • Summary: I needed a switch that was capable of supporting vLANs and dot1Q tagging, this switch works great in that regard. It is limited to 16 VLANs, it is also limited to only 2 etherchannel groups. Beyond that it is perfect for my VMware lab environment.

Thsi is real garbage. I rarely make an assessment like this

  • Summary: I admit, as a professional network Architect, I use Cisco and Juniper equipment all the time. The desire to have a Inexpensive "Managable 5 port (SLM2005) or 8 port (SLM2008) switch with QOS support is strong for those doing VOIP or looking to aggregate NAS drives on to a Gige switch.

Reliable, simple enough for the average user, but with more information.

RST_, Amazon
23 April 2010
  • Summary: This unit was easy to install and would be just fine for the average user, but for the power user it comes with some extra features that allow you a little more insight into what's going on and how your data is treated.

SUPER POS

IT Guy, Amazon
4 February 2009
  • Summary: Switch 8-PORT Gig Smart with pd I used this switch for almost 1 year. It carried very light traffic. I noticed it always ran hot. One day I decided to fry an egg on it. Worked great (I thought this was a switch for data!?) I powered on my computers one morning and nothing worked.

Linksys slm2008 dead after one year

Chuck B, Amazon
1 January 2009
  • Summary: The Linksys SLM2008 has great features for it's price. I like the VLAN feature which I used to put my gamer son on a different subnet.. Alas, the unit died after a little over one year. The power light comes on, but that's it. None of the ports work.

These fail repeatedly. Linksys not helpful after several replacements.

G. Cook "Network Guy", Amazon
1 December 2008
  • Summary: We purchased over a dozen of these for use as desktop switches at our company. Both the SLM2005 and SLM2008 models. They all begin to fail at approximately the same time and within a week all are dead. At first Linksys was happy to replace them.
