5 out of 5 eggsGreat deal!

Pros: I got this when it was on sale for under 2 bills, and it was a great buy. I've got a lot of devices, enterprise grade firewall, multiple computers, home server, etc. and the port-based vlan feature works great to clean up some cables and easily put devices outside my firewall just by switching ports on the switch.

Cons: Haven't found any so far, been up and running for over 30 days with zero stability issues and it's barely warm to the touch.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Switch for the Price

Pros: Great price for such a feature-filled managed switch.

Cons: No snmp, so you can't integrate it with MRTG, or other SNMP gathering tools.

Other Thoughts: Overall, for the price, this is a great switch. Fan-less quiet operation and low power consumption. Most managed switches are considerably more expensive. For a home or small office, this is great. If you need SNMP look elsewhere.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat price and feature-set, braindead user interface

Pros: Good value for the price. Simple to set up. Runs cool. Front panel is thoughtfully laid out.

Cons: Switch came with newer firmware (1.10.011) than is on D-Link's website (1.10.005). Good for me, tough luck for anyone with an older switch, and when a newer version is released I guess I'll be going without.

No jumbo frames. Doesn't seem to matter at gigabit speeds anyway.

No console port. If you forget what subnet you put it in, you're resetting to factory.

Mounting on a board can be difficult. It has threaded holes on the side for rackmount brackets but no keyhole cutouts on the bottom. I used 1" right-angle brackets with single hole in the middle of each arm. These turned out to be the perfect side to fit the side holes and sit flush with the mounting surface.

Minus 1 egg for brain damaged web interface! There is no (ssh) alternative. It's all amateur javascript -- no bookmarking of particular menus, no character-cell web browsers, no automation, no refresh button (takes you to the home menu), no back button (leaves the switch config altogether), no keyboard navigation.

Enabling a feature does not cause the related hidden menus to appear and you can't refresh (see above), must click to different menu and then back to where you were.

No indication of when active config differs from NVRAM contents.

Menu tree borders on random. The four status pages (port speed, MAC table, port counters, VLAN membership) are in four different branches of the menu (System, Security, L2 Features and VLAN respectively). Typical "system" functions (firmware update, reboot, reset to default, save config) aren't in the System menu or any other, they're outside the menu tree altogether in a "Tools" dropdown.

No syslog. It can send SNMP traps but only for a limited set of events. And you won't be able to script additional monitoring thanks to the impenetrable web interface.

There is config download/upload but it's in binary format and of course undocumented. Forget using this feature to provision several switches quickly.

Other Thoughts: If it's the only switch in your network, you can't beat the price and the warts will be tolerable. It costs the same as a few 5-port dumb switches and is better than that setup in every way.

If you want to use a bunch of these, or you have any other networking gear to deal with, buy from a manufacturer who understands the value of manageability. I'm so unimpressed by the user hostility that I would pass on ANY d-link product in a medium+ sized installation.

It's frustrating when a manufacturer chooses to spend money to make their product WORSE. A web UI based on web standards would be cheaper to develop and would make this switch much more versatile. The only apparent "benefit" of the pure-javascript approach is expandable menus... in a UI that doesn't have enough screens to require hierarchical menus! Insane.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat gigabit switch

Pros: 16-gigabit ports, manageable network switch. Price, quality, speed, lifetime warranty - extremely great product for replacing older 10/100 Mps switches..

Cons: Switch was set to it's own class-A IP address that could only be changed by connecting a device directly to the switch, like a notebook, that used the same class-A addressing scheme. Most network devices are defaulted to public class-C IP addresses like This is a minor point and only applies to those who want to manage the switch.

Other Thoughts: Our company has many D-Link products from switches to NICs and all their products are always quality made and last a long time.

3 out of 5 eggsCould be Happier

Pros: Easy to setup. Nice interface. Fast transfers.

Cons: No jumbo frames. Port failure.

Other Thoughts: I have a Synology connected to port 1. This weekend I started having issues with the Synology dropping pings. I ended up switching to port 2 and all is good again. In my case, it took only 7 months for the switch to start failing.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Fast shipment

Pros: So far excellent switch. It runs cool and silent! I am still learning how to use many of the features.

Cons: None, so far

Other Thoughts: Worked as soon as it was connected. I was surprised by the speed increase of my NAS backup drive.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat switch for large home networks

Pros: Great switch for large home networks. If you want a managed switch this price point and functionality is perfect for me.

Cons: It lost it's IP address once, I am not sure why as I had saved the configuration.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Switch

Pros: VLAN tagging, port mirroring, rack mountable, quiet, reliable. This switch does what its supposed to do. I have yet to blame this switch for any problem I have found on my network. Well organized interface. Haven't had to power cycle it yet.

Cons: Directions don't explain VLAN as well as some others do. I am annoyed at the "Voice VLAN" and "surveillance VLAN" that OEMs keep adding to these switches. I think this is just a gimmick and I don't like it. Well actually I think it does give you the ability to add a priority on one of your VLANs. Still seems gimmicky.

Other Thoughts: It has helped me experiment, and find better solutions to my topology. The one thing that bothers me is if this switch powers up and no DHCP is available, it will use its factory default IP. Then after the DHCP server is up, you will be stuck scratching your head as to why you cannot access your switch. This was bought to replace a Netgear. I think this switch performs far superior.

5 out of 5 eggsI like it

Pros: Low cost, easy setup, port mirroring, Time Domain Reflectometry, all ports are gigabit.

Cons: More expensive than an unmanaged switch. But well worth it.

Other Thoughts: This is my first managed switch. It replaces two 8-port unmanaged gigabit switches from D-Link, which combined were over $100, plus it replaces a crummy old hub which I needed to tap the ports I wanted to monitor with Wireshark. The additional features make it great value in comparison.

The mirroring feature lets me watch any port I like with Wireshark without fiddling around with cables. Plus the very first time I looked at the management console I noticed a faulty cable that was only running at 100mbps when the ports were gigabit capable. I guess I could have noticed this by studying the LEDs on the old switch, but it jumped out at me in the management console.

I ran the cable diagnostics on the bad cable and it showed it as only having one pair connected. If the cable had been longer it would have shown how far down the cable the break was, since it has Time Domain Reflectometry.

The dynamic MAC forwarding table is a fascinating window into the network topology.
