NOISY - VERY Noisy

Plain Mike, Amazon
13 August 2012
  • Summary: I placed this switch in an isolated central wiring closet that has other network equipment, some with fans and disk drives. There has never been any sound audible outside the wiring closet. This switch sounds like a vacuum cleaner, and is clearly audible and objectionable in every room that abuts the closet. The switch seems to function OK but the noise is so loud that I regret the purchase.

Don't Buy It

T. Wells, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this switch about 18 months ago. It went out 6 months ago. They have a lifetime warranty, and they replaced it. However, the one they replaced it with had something rattling around inside it when I got it. I sent it back and got another. Then, it failed. They would not cross ship a new one to me. In other words, they wanted me to disconnect the existing switch, send it back to them, and have them ship the new one to me 5-7 days later.

Doesn't work with Firefox -- or ANY mac browser!

Nick Papadakis, Amazon
10 April 2011
  • Summary: I second the comments about the loud fan. However, the deal breaker for me (I'm returning the unit I bought) is that the web management interface does not work with Firefox. In fact, it works ONLY with IE on a PC. Given that many other Linksys products work with Firefox, I was pretty surprised. Linksys needs to have a talk with the clue fairy and cut some new firmware.

Quality build, reliable, but NOISY

Dan, Amazon
17 September 2010
  • Summary: This is an excellent CAT-6 switch. It works perfectly, easy setup, strong and good construction. My only complaint is that the fans are LOUD... and BOY ARE THEY LOUD!!! How much cooling does a switch need? I mean, it's just a switch; it's not a server... sheesh! This is the LOUDEST item in my rack... louder than all my other servers... is that nuts or what!?!?! So, if noise is an issue (even slightly), do NOT get this! If noise isn't an issue at all, then I recommend it.

  • Summary: The fan is surprisingly loud, even for a rack-mounted device intended for a machine room. However, the deal breaker for me (I'm returning the unit I bought) is that the web management interface does not work with Firefox. In fact, it works ONLY with IE on a PC. Given that many other Linksys products work with Firefox, I was pretty surprised. Linksys needs to have a talk with the clue fairy and cut some new firmware.

Great switch, but large

Amazon Customer "ed", Amazon
13 May 2008
  • Summary: The switch has worked flawlessly. Unfortunately the switch is larger than the one it replaced and we had to get a deeper wall rack for it, but I would purchase again regardless.
