Started to fail after 3 years, strange errors

Summary: Avoid this switch
Pros: Worked "reliably" for 3 years
Cons: - Started to fail and drop the network after 3 years - After restarting, new network processes went through which intermittently gave me issues. This leads me to assume that the switch was quietly causing me issues throughout its life. - A switch should never fail in this day in age.
Summary: I bought this switch in 2009 to help give 1 line a few extra connections. today (May 5, 2015) this thing finally stopped providing connections out of any of its ports. I plugged the cable directly into a nic, and instant connection.
Pros: 8 ports, 100 megs a second out of all of them. No extras, but its reliable, and fairly durable. I always say its better to shop around then settle of the first piece of tech you see. And this one is getting up there in years, but if you need a basic switch, with no bells and whistles, then give t...
Cons: When it dies, there is no limited functionality anywhere. It simply stops sending out a signal. Only con I have.
Summary: I don't need a gigabit switch because I don't stream over my network and I don't have really fast internet. Also, my router is only 10/100, so a gigabit switch is kind of pointless in my case.
Pros: Instantly works on my home network (plug and play) No problems with connecting my devices Great price
Summary: Dirt-cheap PnP solution to a major IT overhaul problem. Needed to hardline four workstations, two printers and a wireless AP where only the AP had been before. No budget for wire-runs, and there wasn't a way to run the wires anyway due to electrical and structural issues.
Summary: I bought a few of these for my home network in the 8 and 5 port variety, and they have been issue free for months. I hadn't purchased a Trendnet product before, but I'm glad I took a chance on these.
Summary: I use this switch inside my patch panel to connect one output from my router (located in my office) to a data hub also located inside my patch panel, as part of my Ethernet system. This arrangement works great for my application.
