1 out of 5 eggsGreat While It Lasted

Pros: Easy to install; plug it in, attach your network and you're done.

Cons: My SD2008 died after 13 months while I was upgrading another network device. Cost 4 hours of diagnosis, because *of course* the problem had to be in the new device. Not this time.

Other Thoughts: When my customer's networks get flaky the first thing I'll look for is a SD2008.

3 out of 5 eggsDeath was Painful

Pros: Small footprint, hefty construction, solid performance, at the time of purchase (4 years ago) best price available.

Cons: Death was by intermittent channel drops (randomly) and cost me almost 2 hours to diagnose. I easily could have paid for 3 units in the time I spent pinning this failure down. Idiot lights weren't helpful if you see the lights giving you a headache there's a good reason, it's just not discreet.

Other Thoughts: Glad I had a spare on hand. Might try D-Link DGS-2208 as alternate to see if their status lights are any better. Price is now somewhat high compared to competition.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Switch

Pros: Reliable, fast, small

Cons: Runs hot

Other Thoughts: This has been a great switch for me for years. I like that it takes up very little space. It is hot to the touch (think Apple TV hot), but that doesn't seem to affect performance.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking fine for me

Pros: Have had this for just over a year and it gets full time use (at least during weekdays). I run a PC VPN'd in to my employer through one port all day while running a file server and 2 other PC's and it works well. As far as Gig transfers, I'm getting expected transfers both between pcs on the switch and through multiple switches. Transfers peak at about 400mbps, which is reasonable considering laptop hard drives and other network traffic on the switches.

Cons: Is warm to the touch but not hot. It gets good airflow where I have it so not sure if that makes a difference. Wish the indicator lights indicated speed...they're just on or off.

Other Thoughts: I have version 3...from reading reviews, sounds like that could be the difference due to the circuit board redesign. Have had no issues, and can't remember the last time I reset it. I'm using 7 of the 8 ports with a total of about 20 devices connected to the network through 3 switches, 2 WAP's and a router (with WAP). Have kept all network hardware as Linksys/Cisco...started out with that because of past experience with the brand and just decided to keep it all the same. Could likely get same performance from something else like D-Link...and save a lot of money too. But I'll soon be purchasing another of these to replace a 5 port gig switch.

2 out of 5 eggsNice unit for 3 years 6 months now dead

Pros: Ran great for 3 years and 6 months

Cons: Has just started dropping computer connections either one at a time or all 5 systems.

Other Thoughts: Just a bit over three years for this unit is a great disappointment. My last Hub lasted 6 years before up grading to a 1 gig switch.
The person I gave it to is still using it successfully

1 out of 5 eggsBig disappointment

Pros: Reasonable price. Metal casing. Connections in back of unit.

Cons: Like others have said unit works fine for a while (typically around a year) then anything connected to it starts experiencing connection issues (slow connections, dropped connections).

Other Thoughts: Bought several of these units to help expand network connections in offices and conference rooms. All of these units have failed in less than a year. As soon as someone starts complaining about their network connections and they have one of these switches we don't even troubleshoot the problem we just swap it out with a netgear switch and the problem is solved.

1 out of 5 eggsGives Cisco a Bad Name

Pros: Cheap, Cisco Branding

Cons: Got what I paid for, but not what the Cisco brand was known for.

This worked great at first. Then just like many other reviews it eventually works only poorly if at all. I have eliminated the possibility that the problem is anything else, but the switch.

Then reading on line it appears that I am not alone.

My next switch will not have the Cisco or Lynksys branding on it.

Other Thoughts: I will not longer associate Cisco with High Quality all the time. I bought this because of the Cisco brand on it, and it's reasonable prices. Big mistake.

5 out of 5 eggsGood little Switch

Pros: Plugged it up threw it in a dark hole in the wall, never seen it again or needed to touch it.

Cons: would be nice if it had IOS to do VLAN of course what can you expect for this price

Other Thoughts: It's doing everything I need it to do thumbs up

2 out of 5 eggsFaulty switch

Pros: When working - working well

Cons: 2 ports from 8 just stopped working after about 6 months. No replacement at Cisco. Need all 8 ports for home network. For media and movie streaming need more than 100Mbps - So need to replace the whole thing in case of 2 ports fault.
