1 out of 5 eggsMine also stopped working

Pros: Device worked fine while it was working.

RMA process was pretty painless

Cons: after about 9 months 2/3 of the ports died and I needed to get a replacement.

The new device has not had any problems yet but it has only been about 6 months so far.

Other Thoughts: The RMA process was sraight forward. they overnighted me a new switch for free (had to put a deposit on the one to be returned for $70) but was never charged to my CC.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: None really

Cons: We connected a few machines to this switch and connected the switch into our network. Immediately, performance on the entire network slowed to a crawl. We disconnected the switch and the other equipment returned to normal speed. Devices connected through this switch experienced packet loss and very slow speeds, regardless of which ports we used. This thing is obviously defective.

Other Thoughts: I should have read online reviews before buying this. I just sort of assumed that unmanaged switches were such a commodity item by now that you couldn't screw them up, but I guess I was wrong where Linksys is concerned.

1 out of 5 eggsLasted a year and a half

Pros: Worked fine while it worked.

Cons: The ethernet ports are in 3 groups. Entire middle group no longer functioning after 18 months. The other 2 sections are still working however so at least I've still got a 16 port switch. From the other reviews, I should consider myself lucky to have 2/3 of it still working after 18 months.

2 out of 5 eggs50/50

Pros: Its cheap, works right out of the box without the need of any complex setup!!

Cons: After about 6 months problems start hapening for me where the network speed just goes down to crawl speed, whole switch just freezes, anything that's connected to it doesnt recognize it and only way to resolve that is to unplug everything including powet plug for a few seconds and reconnecting everything !!

Other Thoughts: I have had similiar problems with the Linksys SD2005 v2.1 series where they just freeze or go bad after a few months. Also checked the Linksys series and many other clients experienced the same problem !! I'm going with a different brand now and I'm going to try to RMA all my units for newer versions from Linksys if not then sell then on the side .

Pros: See below

Cons: See below

Other Thoughts: Sent the switch back on 12/30/08. Linksys received it 1/6/09. Have been check their site and it says my replacement it back ordered. I called to find out when it will be back in stock and they said not until 2/20/09. I must say I am very disappointed with their service. I just visited their site and it looks like they are getting out of SMB business and just going for home use. Very sad, they used to be a great company.

1 out of 5 eggsAVOID, DO NOT BUY EVER!!!

Pros: Gigabit speed, 5 year factory warranty, compact

Cons: 100% FAILURE RATE!!! I have 4 of these in my network and all 4 had 90% of their ports die. Linksys/Cisco replaced all 4 and again all 4 had the same issue. They last about 6 months, then all of a sudden 1 craps out, then a week to a month later the next 1 goes kaput and so on. This particular model is absolute garbage. Don't waste your time.

Other Thoughts: Linksys/Cisco replaced 1 of these with a SR2024, the regular sized version. It seems to be holding up a lot better than the SR2024C.

I did not buy mine from Newegg, but had to put in my 2 cents so that others don't make the mistake I made in buying these switches.

Newegg, dropping this product from your lineup will save your customers some intense headaches. This product does not even merit 1 egg, I would give it a 5 on the Rotten Egg scale.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: This switch was easy to mount in the rack, fairly quite, and fast.

Cons: I have had it for about 9 months now and I have lost 20 of 24 ports. They have gone completely dead. I had to ordered another switch to keep my home network running while I send this one back to Cisco/Linksys for repair. I have used other Linksys products in the past and they have always been very reliable and I was very surprised to see the troubles I have had with this one.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully Cisco/Linksys will stand by their warranty.

3 out of 5 eggsBetter options out there

Pros: This switch seemed great considering we had 6 netgear jgs524 switches dropping like flies. We have a few of these and they have stayed strong for just over a year. They are quiet and they feel more solid than other products.

Cons: We had one of these switches take a dive just over the year mark. Half the ports went dead dropping a good portion of the network. This product was on a network with about 230 employees.

Other Thoughts: This switch is good if you're putting it in a room with people. If not, I would use the 3com 3CBLSG24. As of 10/13/2008 the 3com was much cheaper and available on Newegg.com then the Linksys. The 3com is managed where this is not. It supports VLans, RSTP, Link Aggregation, ACLs... The 3com supports 4 SFP modules vs only 2 GBICs on the Linksys. If you purchase more than 1 you can use link aggregation increasing the backbone speed from switch to switch. The features on the 3com have been very useful. In one situation we had an employee install a router thinking it was a switch. This started to drop the network due to the ipaddress it assumed. With the 3com we located the problem quickly and used the ACL to stop access to that device. The more expensive Linksys just sat there looking good while the 3com saved our butts. Other thought, Don't use the 3com if it's around people, it's very loud. But it is also more business grade.
