4 out of 5 eggsGood Home Use Sqitch

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SG108 Unmanaged 10/100/1000Mbps 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch, Metal Case, Power-Saving

Pros: It does what it says. Very well built and fast.

Cons: The only con is that the power plug is on the back of the unit, I would have liked to use a POE injector to power this switch since I have it in a remote location. It does also tend to stay pretty warm on the case.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it says on the tin

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SG108 Unmanaged 10/100/1000Mbps 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch, Metal Case, Power-Saving

Pros: it's an unmanaged gigabit switch. Turn it on, plug it in, and it works. I've had no problems with it.

Cons: None observed.

Other Thoughts: I haven't tried to speed test this thing. I'd actually prefer the power cable and network ports be on the same side of the device, but that's personal preference.

5 out of 5 eggsTP-LINK TL-SG108 I'm Impressed

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SG108 Unmanaged 10/100/1000Mbps 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch, Metal Case, Power-Saving

Pros: Its FAST and Small.

Cons: None as far as I can tell.

Other Thoughts: I ordered this yesterday about 3:00. I got it today about 11:00 plunged it in and instantly several of my net issues disappeared. I read about the dislike of the configuration but if it keeps performing this good I don't care. I hate hunting down bottlenecks and defective devices.
I know 4 hours isn't a real test but it improved things so dramatically over the lynksys 5 port it replaced I needed to review it. To be fair the linksys is 10/100 and 10 years old with about 6 machines all with vpn connections running through it.

5 out of 5 eggsGood deal

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SG108 Unmanaged 10/100/1000Mbps 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch, Metal Case, Power-Saving

Pros: Works fine, full speed, no problems.

Got it on sale for $22.99.

Cons: 5-year warranty, which isn't bad, but I got the equivalent Netgear for $24.99 after rebate with a lifetime warranty. The Netgear wasn't on sale yet when I bought this one.

Other Thoughts: I have this and the equivalent Netgear GS108. The Netgear is a little heavier, but functionally and speedwise for typical use there is no difference. I have them chained to each other, both work fine.

I actually prefer this one for a minor cosmetic reason to the Netgear, the TP-Link shows gigabit in green and 10/100 in yellow. Whereas the Netgear is always green, but different lights. From a distance you can tell better with the TP-Link.

I prefer the Netgear overall because of the lifetime warranty, and if you can get it on sale like I did then obviously get that one.

5 out of 5 eggsStandard and Cheap

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SG108 Unmanaged 10/100/1000Mbps 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch, Metal Case, Power-Saving

Pros: Does what it's supposed to do. Plug and play, no problems. I stream 720P video through this, Xbox 360, Netflix, no problems with throughput.

Cons: It's hilarious to me what a so-called a Eggspert (Hrm..o0JOe00..Hrm) complains about for this product. Please allow me to offer a different opinion:
*RJ45 ports on the front?: Yup, this is pretty standard if not ubiquitous on most networking equipment and is clearly shown in the pictures. No surprise here.
*CAT cables cover lights?: Not really, they are LEDs for showing port activity, all you need to see if they are lit/flashing, which you can do easily.
*90° oriented power adapter?: Fits nicely on standard Wall sockets or powerstrips which are oriented accordingly. This was designed as to not block other outlets.
*Sticky Rubber Feet?: Again, pretty standard. Don't like them? Don't use them or go buy some from target that do fit your standards for a buck.
*Miniscule Size?: Why is this listed as a Pro and as a Con? Again, pretty standard for an 8 port switch. If it was the size of a toaster, someone needs to get fired.

Is it pretty? No. Is it supposed to be pretty? No. Does it perform as an 8 port unmanaged gigabyte switch? Perfectly.

Other Thoughts: Please think before you review.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Switches - Highly Recommended

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SG108 Unmanaged 10/100/1000Mbps 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch, Metal Case, Power-Saving

Pros: Nice Metal Case
Small Size Device
Stays pretty cool
No Noise/ No Fan
Low power consumption
Great LED indicators for different speed connections
Good Throughput.
Reasonable Price for the product

Cons: My only complaint with these types of switches is that all of the connections are on the front of the device and of course the power plug is on the back of the device.

It would be nice to have the power and all ports on the back of the device with LED's attached to each port as well as putting a second set of LED's on the front of the device for easy "at a glance" views of each port.

If you mount these on the wall or place them on a desk top, it is difficult to make them look good and still remain functional due to having to route cables and power connections to opposite sides of the device.

If you are just putting it on the floor, no big deal. But, if you are trying to mount it on the wall or place it on a Desktop, it looks very busy and disorganized due to required cable routing. Of course, the ideal the orientation of the unit gives you full access and view of the activity/signal LED's.

Other Thoughts: I purchased 2 of these to use with my home network to stream video and data between the TV area and my Office / Modem-Router devices. They are 70 feet walking distance from each other.

At the TV location, I have connected a HAVA PCTV To-Go Device (Video Streamer like a Sling Box), a DirecTV HD DVR Receiver, a TP-Link WR-1043ND Wireless Router that I'm using strictly as a Remote Access Point, a Seagate FreeAgent Theatre+ HD Media Player , and a Buffalo NAS device holding all of my movies, and a Wireless Wii Game Machine.

In my office, I have connected my Motorola SurfBoard SB-6141 Cable Modem to a TP-Link WDR-4300 Wireless Dual Band Router , and then connected the Router to supply signal to each of the 2 New Switches Plus an old 8 port switch and an Obihai 100 VoIP device.

To the New Office Switch, I have connected 2 Desktop hard wired PC's, a Buffalo NAS Backup device, a Laptop PC as well as a VoIP NetTalk Device. I still have a couple of open ports. So far, everything seems to work just fine for streaming HD videos from Netflix as well as movies from my NAS/Seagate Theatre+ Device, as well as streaming video to remote devices and internal devices using the HAVA PCTV To-Go Device. I have done all of this while running Backups concurrently to both Buffalo NAS devices without any issues.

Throughput seems to be very good and I highly recommend these devices.

5 out of 5 eggsTP-LINKI GIGABIT SWITCH

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SG108 Unmanaged 10/100/1000Mbps 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch, Metal Case, Power-Saving

Pros: Works Perfect. Just plug stuff in and it works great. I like all TP-LINK stuff.

Cons: I have this metal housing version and also the plastic housing version. I like the plastic housing better as the ports are all on the back side out of sight and a display is on the front side. This one with the metal case has all the ports and display lights on the front side so its harder to hide Cat-6 Cable.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend TP-LINK stuff to anyone. I never have I had a bad TP-LINK item to date, nor anything TP-LINK has failed on me yet.
