Use this desktop switch to connect up to five computers, printers, or wireless access points to the network, as well as to share network resources such as servers and network-attached storage. The switch works right out of the box and does not require any management or configuration. Quality of service (QoS) enhances network performance and improves voice and video quality. The switch optimizes power efficiency and features Energy Efficient Ethernet, which reduces energy consumption without compromising performance. The Cisco SF100D-05 delivers the reliability and performance needed to keep the network running smoothly and is protected by a limited lifetime warranty.
Ease of use:
The switches are easy to use and install for businesses that have no IT staff. They work right out of the box, with no configuration or software needed.
Powerful network performance:
The Cisco 100 Series provides the boost of speed and capacity that small businesses need to support bandwidth-intensive applications and avoid slow or sluggish networks.
Support for advanced technologies:
Built-in QoS intelligence on all models helps maintain consistent network performance.
An eco-friendly solution:
The Cisco 100 Series optimizes power usage without compromising performance, protecting the environment and reducing energy costs. They support the Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) standard, which reduces energy consumption by monitoring the amount of traffic on an active link and putting the link into a sleep state during quiet periods.
Peace of mind:
These switches deliver the quality, reliability, and innovation customers expect from a Cisco switch. They have been rigorously tested and are backed by a Cisco limited lifetime warranty.
A fanless design on most models allows the switches to run silently and unobtrusively.
These switches are supported by the Cisco Small Business Support Center, which is staffed by personnel who have earned the Cisco CCNA certification and can provide immediate, quality technical help.
Cisco 100 Series Switches deliver powerful network performance and flexibility for small business networks, without the complexity. With no installation software and nothing to configure, you get an affordable, reliable network that just works, right out of the box.
Not so great
Pros: Works well with everything but Intel NICs.
Cons: We have several network drops per hour with these plugged into any Intel NIC, whether it be the new NUC, an Intel Desktop Board, etc. Not really acceptable.
Other Thoughts: I can't decide whether to contact Intel or Cisco with this issue. We've proven it time and time again, but who do you call? I think for now we'll stay away from these switches and get some cheaper ones that work.

Pros: Mounts easily to the wall. We did mount it pointing downward so the lights wouldn't bother us. I have my computers and my entire entertainment system connetected thru this switch, including my xbox. Easy to use and works great.
