What happened to the price???

Pros: Awesome switch by an awesome company. Works great, like all Cisco products. However...see cons!

Cons: Word on the street is that Cisco sold Linksys off to Belkin, and now this switch has skyrocketed in price! Bought this item a year ago for $60, bought another one for a client a month ago for $90, and now it's a staggering $139.95?? Typical Belkin way of doing things. I'm sure the quality will soon follow the low price point--right down the toilet.

Linksys workhorse, as expected

Pros: I used mine in a college house utilizing all 8 ports for PC's, laptops, and consoles pretty much day and night and never had so much as a hiccup from the unit. Now lives out a quiet life at my workstation managing my PC and Xboxes.

Cons: 1. All these years and they still don't make them with mounting holes. Had to rig up my own with a block of wood and zip ties when I finally freed up the desk space and got sick of moving it to vacuum the floor.
2. Personally I think the price point is a little steep for just 10/100 speed

Overall Review: I purchased this used back in 07, (v3.0) and it still like a champ. Much like the WRT54g router, they've been around for over a decade and still run perfectly. They're like the '60 Chevy of networking gear.

Longevity

Pros: -Long life!
I bought this exact model in 2004 (will it say Verified Owner? I'll find out. It's in my Order History) and it still works!

Cons: -10/100 Mbps only.
There are a multitude of 10/100/1000 switches on the market for about the same price, including another Linksys.
-Smaller than the WRT54G.
It came with a conversion kit to allow it to stack on the other Linksys gear of the same generation, but it just wasn't the same.

Overall Review: When I do PC-to-PC file transfers, it does about 9-10 MBps and makes any other internet use impossibly slow. Then I did the calculation and realized that 9-10 MBps is just about the cap for a 10/100 switch so...that's why, duh.

works and ideal

Pros: does what you want and for the price you would get much better unless you want to spend way more.
best bang for your bucks.

Cons: only 100 Mbps this is even a refined model you receive. so why is that not updated.
tho in most U.S states getting more that 10 Mbps is not likely.

Overall Review: remember you can not stack these on one another it will need its own port from the main router to work.

Awesome Unmanaged Switch

Pros: - Great Switch, Easy Setup
- Works with all devices, (Smart TV, Win7 PCs, Android OS devices, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS)
- Of course half of what I listed above is connected wirelessly through the 54 MBps Linksys Wireless router
- It is simply plug n' play, and it will work well with any router, simply flawless.
- Seems to be built sturdy, so should be reliable for the long run
- Comes with software for any information or driver installation that you may need, but most likely not, it should work as plug n' play and you are ready to go.

Cons: - None, it stays a little warm, but that is expected.

Overall Review: Great switch, for any home network.

It works

Pros: Plugged it in and it works as expected.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I have this attached to my entertainment center to link my tv, receiver(netflix/pandora) and directv receiver to my router for an internet connection to each. I've noticed since I switched from wireless to a wired connection that I experience almost no buffering issues with netflix. With the previous wireless connection we had it seemed common to have multiple buffering issues during each show/movie.

Does exactly what it should

Pros: Works exactly as described.

Cons: None

Overall Review: This did not matter to me, but the unit I received is all black. The picture shows it being part blue and part black.

Just an FYI... Even though this is an 8 port switch, if you use the uplink port, such as connecting this device to a cable modem for internet, you can connect 7 devices. I only needed 5, but if you buy this thinking you can use it on 8 devices and still plug the switch into an internet connection, you will be disappointed.
