5 out of 5 eggs Quality. Cheap. Fast. 12/22/2008

This review is from: D-Link DGS-2205 Unmanaged 5-Port Green Technology Desktop Switch

Pros:

Cost was the driving factor in my purchase decision, but don't be fooled, this is a quality product. Excellent speeds. Runs cool. I have no idea about its ability to save energy as the manufacturer touts.

Cons:

Utilitarian LEDs show link/speed based on color (amber or green). Flashing indicates activity. That's it, very basic. Is that a con?

Other Thoughts:

I have noticed other reviewers state that this switch falls back to the lowest speed device on the network. That is simply NOT true, it was the first thing I tested when I pulled it out of the box. I forced my wife's PC to 10Mbps, used my laptop (100Mbps), my PC at 1Gbps, and my iMac at 1Gbps. Transfers between all devices performed at expected speeds.
Thanks Newegg. Product arrived two days AHEAD of schedule. How often does that happen?
