Mixed Reviews, but it's been good for me. 06/20/2009
This review is from: Cisco Small Business SD2008 Gigabit Switch
Cheap and good looking gigabit switch with small foot print. I've used a couple of these without problems for several months. I am using the relatively new v3 edition. It's fanless and silent. It now also supposedly supports jumbo frames, but finding that info is hard online.
Model SD2008 has a history of failures although the new version (v3) appears to be quiet and more reliable. I think they should have changed the name instead of keeping the stigma associated with the SD2008 name.
I found this comment on a board "Signifiant changes have occurred over the life of this switch. Version 1 had an internal fan and was quite noisy, albeit cool running. Version 2 & 2.1 eliminated the fan. However capacitor C251, sitting next to an internal heatsink is prone to failure after 6 - 8 months, resulting in dropped packets and link connections. Version 3.0 has solved this problem with a complete re-layout of the printed circuit board (PCB), with a redesign of the power/voltage regulation."
