5 out of 5 eggsStill running strong several years later

Pros: Just posting this to let you all know I've been abusing this switch for several years now and its still going strong. I have an ESXi server plugged into it with a dual port nic passed through to a vm and teamed to 2gbps. I get every last ounce of throuhgput possible out of it and couldn't be happier with how easy and simple it is to configure.

Cons: GUI is extremely dated and boring.

Other Thoughts: I've seen a couple d-link switches fail over the years, but never in a way that couldn't be fixed. One was capacitors which I replaced and still use as a trusty spare, and the other was just an external power supply. If you can catch their stuff on sale I highly recommend it.

5 out of 5 eggsWe are dedicated DLink people

Pros: We always have good luck with D-Link. This box was not excpetion. it works out of the box; is fast and does what it says it will do for a long time. we have switches that have run nearly 10 years without a slight hickup.

Cons: none

2 out of 5 eggsSome advanced options, not some basic ones

Pros: Lots of advanced options with VLANs so you can separate traffic.
The ability to setup port mirrors was unexpected.

Cons: I was surprised to find it was missing some very basic smart switch features. The device has no SNMP statistics and you cannot enter a description on a port. I had assumed that these two very basic things would be included on any smart switch. But since I won't be doing any VLANs anytime soon and will rarely need a port mirror, I should have saved money and purchased a dumb switch with more ports.

Other Thoughts: Smart but lacking

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.
