Pros: As an IT Professional I deal with many switches on a daily basis. I've been giving TP-LINK a chance at routers and corporate switches. This was installed for a school with over 120 workstations, multiple Servers, dozens of iPADS, Kindles, and hundreds of phones used by teachers, staff and students. This baby handles all the traffic really well. The switch does it's job and does so at half the price of any Cisco or Dell switch. I highly recommend you purchase it and gi...
Summary: I was disappointed at the quality of the brand and the product that I trusted and put my money on. What really baffled me is what I learned from the TP-LINK Customer Service Executive, Ms. Denise Serna, after I called in for the warranty service: She told me to pay $4.99 up front to get the Advanced Replacement Service. This charge is in addition to holding my credit card as the collateral.
Pros: It is a gigabit switch and it has 24 ports.
Cons: I bought a TP-LINK TL-SG1024D 24-port switch in January 2013. It worked well until about a week ago (August 2013) when I felt a significant slowdown in accessing the Internet. At first, I thought it was a temporary traffic jam in my area. The sluggish net speed continued for over a week. I started to think there might be a problem somewhere and decided to diagnose the problem on my side before I call the cable company (my Internet service provider). I recycled the pow...
Pros: Excellent price, compact, noiseles. Had conectivity within seconds, my media servers stream smoothly now that they are not wireless, and my network printer was recognized within seconds. Only lights that come up are the active connections, all other remain off when not in use.
Pros: Works great with all 24 plugged in; running quad core gaming rigs! This is used at the LAN Joker was talking about - We flood this thing, everyone online, everyone downloading, sending files, updating games, etc. Before this switch, our LANs had more crashes (with this one ZERO crashes) and transfered files slower. This thing hauls - Recommended!
Pros: Unmanaged, so plug anything in and away you go. Price is right. Throughput for our last lan was really highh and this took it in stride. 24 ports is right at our cap, so almost everyone got to connect. Even with everyone playing Diablo3, Black ops, and BF3, we were rocking the whole time.
Pros: I am getting 700mbs speeds on CAT5 (not CAT5E) wired in my house. I am so happy with this as CAT5 isnt officially supported for gigabit speeds. I have short runs, so the lack of extra shielding didn't affect me. This switch created value out of thin air just by plugging it in.
Cons: This unit has a fan, so may not be suitable for everyone on a desk. I have this guy mounted to a wall (using included mount ears) in my boiler room next to the incoming coax/cable modem/router. Its has a hum, but I dont have to deal with it as all my gear is out of sight.
