2 out of 5 eggsSimple Managed Switch

Pros: Configuration changes, booting, all happen very fast. The menu system is quick to navigate for a managed switch.

Cons: Loses configuration settings.

Other Thoughts: I own (3) of these switches. The oldest one (about 1 years) just started to lose its configuration every day. The switch is connected to a battery backup so power isn't a problem. I'm currently waiting RMA on it now.

I run with 8 VLAN's at home, and cant agree with the Trunk port problem another user has. That user probably doesn't understand network terminology differences between Cisco products and everything else. I have 4 trunk ports on each switch for Hyper-V and VM servers and inter-connectivity between switches. It works flawlessly when the switch is working.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent managed switch

Pros: -very easy to setup
-steel case
-Good to mix gigabit with 100.

Cons: - none

Other Thoughts: For those saying that the switch is losing the settings, do not return it. You have to use the save option on the top of the screen to save settings in eprom.

1 out of 5 eggsfactory resets on its own frequently

Pros: Speed. I like how the UI terminology matches the other D-Link smart switch I have, so no need to re-learn their implementation of VLANs. Seems like Cisco calls it something different. I think DLinks is easier to understand (24 port edition of this same thing). D-Link's business tech support is pretty good also.

Cons: I bought one of these 3 months ago and one last week. I work from home run different VLANs to segregate work traffic from my home traffic. It was headaches for a long time until I finally pinpointed this as the source of my problem. Basically, it completely forgets the configuration and does a factory reset on its own at least every day. I've recreated the problem at least 7 times in the last week. I ordered a second unit to replace the first while I waited for D-link to RMA my current unit. Have been running the new unit for 24 hours and what do you know - dropped all programming again and went to factory default. For the record, all I changed was 1-set static IP. 2-set admin password. 3-Created 4 vlans. And yes, I did click the save and commit it to NV_RAM per the GUI. Still having the problem.

Other Thoughts: I really want this to work. this switch has a good price point and good feature set. I generally prefer D-Link over others because of price and quality. However two different units both with the exact same problem. I don't like having to pay for shipping and get an RMA for the same thing. Would've been better off spending double and getting a higher end unit. And yes, I did upgrade the firmware. Running 1.10.033. I would return it but I already sent of for the mail-in-rebate, so I guess i'm stuck with it. Got a Cisco on the way now to replace this unit with. Lots of expense, frustration, and headache just to get my network running with VLANs...

5 out of 5 eggsD-Link 8-Port Managed Switch

Pros: Small, cheap, fast, quiet (no fan)

Cons: It would always be nice to have other features like a telnet interface or SNMP but at this price point, that is probably unrealistic. It works as advertised and does it well.

Other Thoughts: I had a horrible time trying to configure it until I switched from Chrome to Firefox and then suddenly everything worked as it was supposed to. I know this is a problem for all manufacturers because the browsers change often but I wish there had been a note in the docs to avoid Chrome with this unit. It is entirely possible that Chrome worked at one time.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Can handle high throughput data, even when all 8 ports are in use

Cons: Doesnt make toast

Other Thoughts: I have had this switch for a few months now and it has been solid. I have used it to network 8 computers together to perform quantum calculations and the performance is onpar with most 8 port switches. I have no need for the extra features offered by this switch but I have found it reliable and relatively cost effective.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great, setup requires Windows

Pros: Very affordable

Cons: The setup software requires a Windows machine as it uses the Adobe AIR runtime.

Other Thoughts: No complaints, but I have a fairly simple home setup with a single vlan. The switch lives behind a PIX firewall and feeds a few unmanaged gigabit switches and powerline devices. Altogether I have 12 virtual machines, and 4 workstations using it without even coming close to saturation. Don't forget to enable jumbo frames if your devices support it!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks very well

Pros: The D-Link DGS-1100-08 is a 8 port managed or unmanaged switch. The fit and finish looks nice, solid metal but fairly lightweight and it is cool to the touch.
The ports are on the front with the power plug in the back which has a right angle. It's designed for a rack but can be put on a desk just as well thanks to some stick on rubber pads.
Speeds are just as good if not better then the TP-link switch that I have as well.
Since I already use my wireless router for DCHP the management software is fairly useless for me but I did install their console which allows you some management even if somewhat limited.
This switch can be upgraded with firmware, as of now since it's fairly new it has the default firmware, the only one available.
D-Link is a known company for network equipment which helps when it comes to firmware or downloads being available.
It is IEEE 802.3az compliant and the ports not in use are turned off saving power so it's considered green.
Another nice enterprise feature is loopback detection and cable diagnostics.

Cons: None, the price for a managed 8 port switch it is reasonable.

Other Thoughts: If not using the DGS-1100-08 as a managed switch with DCHP you cannot access the switch with
If you have a table full of computers and only one inline RJ45 this switch would be ideal but for only one or two computers complete overkill.
Extra ports can be handy if one was to burn out but from what I read in general the entire unit will fail not just one specific port.
Pure plug and plug, works as it should so no complaints.

5 out of 5 eggsSuprisingly Spry Switch

Pros: Upon opeining the box, I was treated to a nice high quality piece of equipment. Just setting it up impressed me. From the bright indicator lights, tough metal shell and surprisingly sticky feet it's a quality feeling product through and through.

If you intend to use this as a normal switch, you absolutely can, but you'll be doing yourself and it a great disservice. The management software is simple and easy to use. I love being able to use this as a managed switch.

Being a Gigabit Switch, this worked wonderfully in my environment. From Streaming HD videos from media server, to transferring said videos across my network this worked fantastically.

Cons: While I love this switch, I did find the power adapter to be a tad short. I wish it were longer, but this doesn't knock it enough to loose an egg.

Other Thoughts: I replaced an old 10/100 switch that I had form my PS3, Media PC, and Xbox 360 and it performed spectacularly. While I didn't see a big difference when gaming on my consoles, when LAN gaming with other PC's on my network I could actually perceive a bit of a difference on that machine. With them all on a Gigabit connections (my router is also Gigabit capable), at least I have peace of mind of a more fair environment when LAN gaming.

This really is a great switch if you, like me, prefer a wired connection for your devices. While I get wireless fine in my living room running a cable from my router to this switch alleviates any issue with wireless congestion in an area. I absolutely recommend this switch.
