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 10.90.90.90.
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.

5 out of 5 eggsSmall but powerful.

Pros: Nice management software which is very straightforward to use. The switch can be operated as a managed switch or just simply as a dumb switch. The amount of power delivered to a port is determine by usage and length of cable attached to that port, very neat. Wall mount simple and functional. The provided wall wart is small and occupies a single outlet on my power strip, i.e. it doesn't obstruct adjacent ones. Build quality is high, and the unit appears to be very sturdy. I can look across my office and see quite easily what’s going on with the 8 ports as the indicators are bright and very visible. Cool runnings of both the switch and the wall wart!

Cons: None so far, tried hard but it pretty much does what it says.

Other Thoughts: I used this dlink switch as a replacement for a TP-Link 8 port switch, the difference between the two is the TP-Link is huge, about 10 times the size, and it is not smart, dumber than a pounded thumb as they say in these parts. The dlink switch is connected to my wireless router which is in turn connected to my cable modem. The router is a dual band Edimax and it only has the switch hardwired on the downside. Hardwired to the switch are 5 PCs, one networked printer and a networked media device. Only 2 of the PCs get heavy use, one being a 24/7 HTPC and the other a file server and video editing machine. The TP-Link served me well and I’ll keep it stashed should I need it again, but the dlink gives so many more options, not all of which I will be taking advantage of.

The throughput on the internal network is not noticeably different from the TP-Link but this switch is noticeably cooler and a quick check with a Kill A Watt device told me that it consumes less power than the TP-Link, although to be honest it was pretty minimal as the TP-Link also has "green features".

For those of you looking for the simple life then connecting all the cables and switching on will work, but then perhaps you should be looking at a simpler switch. If you want to get the full benefits of the switch and you have a variety of network devices with a variety of bandwidth requirements then you will have to delve into the management software. Pretty much I’ve allocated bandwidth and priorities to my different devices and static addresses (max of 32) and that’s as far as I have taken this switch. While usually not an issue on small networks this switch has loopback detection and this could be of benefit in situations where you have complex or hidden cabling. If you’re into trunking, or VLANs then this switch will aim to please.

For ease of setup, the sturdy and cool (temperaturewise) design, feature set and the fact it just works 5 eggs!

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good Thing

Pros: This switch has all of the features you would expect from a full rack switch. It has great QoS support, with options allowing you to fine tune way more than you ever should need to on an 8 port switch. The switch runs incredibly cool, serving up high performance reliably. It even has holes for rack fans. There are features to keep things running smoothly in the event of user error (loopback detection, etc), malicious users (DOS/flood protection, etc), and other infrastructure failure (storm protection, etc).

The web management interface is very nice and full featured.

The unit is very well built. One of the better small switch builds out there.

Bottom line is that it is very hard to make this switch not work.

Cons: The software that comes on the CD is not very helpful or well written (it's an adobe air app from what looks like 2007). You can use it to switch the devices into the same subnet as your PC and turn on DHCP client to make it easier to get to the awesome web client, so it does serve an important purpose.

Other Thoughts: There's a ground clip to hook to your rack or panel.

You can log in to these switches with telnet to automate setup from scripts. It's not Cisco compatible as far as I can tell.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent SOHO Switch

Pros: This is a very, very nice "smart" switch, and perfect for a small office, or even a home network with specific needs.

Some of the notable features

* 802.1Q VLAN support
* Fanless design
* supports Gigabit ethernet
* Cable tester - makes finding a bad/flakey cable simple!
*QoS on a per port basis

While it's no Enterprise quality Cisco switch, it does go above and beyond in it's feature set for a SOHO switch, and the price is very attractive to boot!

Cons: No cons, it's a nice SOHO switch for the price.

Other Thoughts: Going into detail on the above features is beyond the scope of this review, however a quick google search will give you more info than you likely want!

Most small home/office networks can get by with just a simple router, however for those wanting finer control over their network, this switch is the ticket. From control/limiting bandwidth on a per-port basis, to simply expanding your network, this switch offers a huge amount of bang for the buck.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and Simple

Pros: There is no fuss to configuring and setting this switch up. Pull it out of the box and plug it in. It switches traffic fast and never had an issue during the torture tests I put it through. Multiple RIS installations, streaming backups. iSCSI traffic and the like. It just soaked it up.
The chassis is solid quality metal. I've dropped it into a tool box after a long day at a customer site and it isn't even dented.

Cons: The only issue I could find was that this won't fit in a standard rack... but then it's a desktop switch. This is for a SOHO or test lab. Not for a rack-mounted environment.

Other Thoughts: Not much else to say. This works the first time all the time. I've taken it to multiple customer locations and put it through the ringer.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little Switch

Pros: This switch can either be managed or unmanaged, depending on how your network will be set up. It supports VLAN, auto surveillance, and bandwidth control among many other options. Basic home users will be able to connect and use this switch out of the box without having to configure anything. Businesses or more advance users can configure the switch using either the included SmartConsole utility or via the web based interface.

Hardware is included for those users who will be mounting the switch in a rack or enclosure. It also has a Kensington security slot for theft protection.

This switch was connected to multiple desktop clients, a NAS and printer and all functioned without issue. Data transfer speeds between the NAS and client PC’s were approximately 50 MBPS. Using network monitoring software I did not see any data or packet loss and the switch preformed flawlessly.

Cons: As others have mentioned, trunking is limited on this switch and may be an issue with some users who need this function. No options for SNMP or CLI. Though, considering the price, the functions this router provides are more than adequate. Power users or larger businesses might want to consider a more advanced switch with the features this device lacks.

Other Thoughts: This router uses a non-standard default IP. To initially manage the switch you will have to manually set the IP on your computer for web based administration or use the included SmartConsole software. The traffic and connection status LEDs are very bright and for users who will place this on their desk, it may be an issue in low light environments. There should be an option to lower the LED intensity. It get's 5 Stars because of the reasonable price.
