4 out of 5 eggsGoing strong after 2 years

Pros: Keeps speeds high, never have to reset. Still going strong, no reason to replace.

Cons: Had to change the fan out with another 40mm after about 2 + years of use (lost track). Can be slightly noisy compared to the "green" units out there, but for the initial cost, its more than exceeded it's worth.

Other Thoughts: Replacement fan was $7 and about 1 hr of time to replace.

4 out of 5 eggsFast, sometimes has issues

Pros: Very fast, works great most of the time

Cons: Occasionally has a hard time talking to my Netgear router, especially when it loses power. This may be the Netgears problem, or this units. Switching the port on the Netgear fixes the issue.

1 out of 5 eggsddavis66

Pros: Ordering from New Egg

Cons: Plugged in and worked for approx. 3 hours, then the networked devices attached to this switch no longer responded. I unplugged / plugged switch back in again and network devices were able to make connectivity, for about another hour, than nothing. I tried different patch cables, other devices, computer, laptop, printer, IP cameras, all with the same outcome. Didn't see anything on Linksys website for a firmware update.

Other Thoughts: Contacted Newegg, RMA and they are sending out another switch.

1 out of 5 eggsOptimaly slows all networks

Pros: Worked when I put it in

Cons: Brought my network to a stop it is probably the optimizer functions that dropped the Gig router down to 4kps

Other Thoughts: I have had this beast in my home network for almost a year. I have been each month my network traffic has slowed down more and more. I would not have believed that a simple switch could do so much harm which is why it took me so long to diagnose the error. Once I pulled this out of the loop everything worked like a champ.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: This unit works as advertised. Just plug it in and that's all.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: 8 port switch for this price - it would be nice if it would have a cable in the package (like some routers do)

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Switch

Pros: The EG008W Revision 3 is an outstanding consumer grade gigabit switch, great price too! Installation couldn't be simpler, just plug it in and you're good to go. It does generate a bit of heat when there's a lot of network activity but nothing too major. I recommend this router to anyone who's looking to supercharge their home/small business network to gigabit speeds.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: The first one I received was DOA but Newegg's great RMA service got me a replacement super quick.

4 out of 5 eggs3rd time is the Charm??

Pros: Nice unit compact and quite works well.

Cons: Two prior units have only lasted about 3 years. But I happen to like Linksys products. My router is almost 10 years old and still chugging along.

Other Thoughts: You know it is failing when connect times start to take longer and page loading is as slow as a 56K modem. As well as router assignments are not recognized.

Still nothing last forever anymore so a three year run while is disappointing seem to be par for the course. ; /
