Cons: - none so far

Pros: - inexpensive- 8 ports- Gigabit ports
I've bought this appliance with good confidence and expectations as I had already bought another TP-Link switch in the past (24 ports) and I am 100% satisfied with it. That TP-Link is still running strong for me to this day (more than two years) hence why I am confident I should get the same reliability with this one.There is one person who gave a bad review claiming that this switch does not deliver the performance it claims. Well, I don't know which methodology that person used, but I have nothing but good praise on the performance. In my case, I have written an appliance myself that constantly exchanges data between two computers connected to the switch and I was consistently getting 896 Mbps. My guess is that the remaining Mbps missing are related to the overhead of the IP frames. In comparison, I had run my tool against my old 100 Mbps switch and I was getting speed of 90 Mbps... See the pattern here? 10% overhead. This article seems to confirm my observations: http://www.tamos.net/~rhay/wp/overhead/overhead.htmSo bottom line, I think you can buy this switch with confidence and according to me, it's a steal.And thanks to NCIX again for great prices & lightning fast shipping!

Cons: none at the moment

Pros: small footprint, auto MDI/MDIX, supports mixed cables
I used this to replace an 10 yr old Dynex 10/100 5-port switch. I needed a few extra ports and didn't want to go the lazy way out by daisy-chaining multiple switches. The auto MDI/MDIX works great specially with mixed cable runs of questionable wiring arrangements. Yes, patch cables purchased pre-made could be wired in either the 568B or 568A methods. Method B is the more common and both should work together without any issues, however, it is sometimes better to make sure all cables follow a single method for your home network. The auto MDI/MDIX also works even if you use crossover patch cables. Works with Cat5/Cat5e for Gigabit connections. The product comes in a basic box with a small bilingual booklet for some documentation and instructions, a power cord and the switch itself.

Review Date: 10/01/14
Cons: Pas encore de point négatif

Pros: Cette switch est très performante
Cette switch, fournis une bonne connection réseaux pour 7 nouveau poste dans l'entreprise a un cout résonnable

Review Date: 09/21/14
Cons: None

Pros: Very Easy to setup, and Connect.Small footprint (easy to hide)Inexpensive when on sale.
Performs as Advertised.Connects with either Regular, or crossover Cables. (Crossovers are not needed, but If you have a few extra, you can use them as a regular cable).100 & 1000 Bit units connected. Gigabit units not slowed down whatsoever.Beats the 4 cable ports that I had on my Router, now I can connect all the other electronics I have to the network, and I have a few to spare for future expansion.The lights are also greenNot the blue that interrupts sleep cycles.The power block also points out to the side, so it is easy to place on the power-bar.

Cons: poor finish

Pros: cheap, light
we don't need to invest too much for some lan

Cons: None

Pros: PriceSizePricePrice
I needed 2 of these, so bought 3. One for backup.These switches are great. Worked flawlessly right out of the box.Assigned the IP's to all 14 devices on my network and everything works like it should.

Review Date: 06/15/14
Cons: None to date

Pros: Relatively inexpensiveWorks as advertised without issues
Not a great deal to add here to what others have said. I needed to replace an ancient four port hub I had been using to connect my collection of older PCs to the network, and this was an inexpensive solution. I purchased it on sale along with a five-port version for my daughter. My experience so far has been that they are great value for the money.

Review Date: 06/10/14
Cons: Doesn't blend

Pros: Works without issue
It's a switch- it has worked without issue since putting it on my home LAN, which is pretty much what you want from a network switch. Can't compare its performance to other offerings but it was a good price.

Review Date: 04/23/14
Cons: -none!

Pros: -affordable-works as expected
This is a wonderful switch. It works very well. I bought 2 and built a gigabit network for my new file server (FreeNAS) Wow, the speed is nice. If you have more that one computer at home and want to share stuff fast, don't bother to get a gigabit router. Get one or two of those and you are set!

Review Date: 04/17/14
Cons: Cheap feeling (plastic)

Pros: Easy to use
The packaging is nice and the switch work as expected. The plastic are a bit cheap but for the price its well worth the money.

Review Date: 04/13/14
Cons: None

Pros: It just works
It's nothing special, but it works. All you have to do is plug it in.

Review Date: 02/28/14
Cons: Son poids faible et ceci fait en sorte que le boitier ne tient pas bien droit avec la tensions des câbles réseau s'y raccordant.

Pros: Manufacturier fiable.8 ports Gigabit.Probablement la switch à 8 ports la moins cher du marché.
J'utilise cette switch en cascade avec m on router TP-Link WDR-4300 pour étendre mon réseau câblé. La vitesse est telle que spécifiée et peut atteindre 100MB/S en continu sans problème. J'ai n'ai jamais eut aucun problème avec cette switch et je l'utilise intensivement pour streamer du vidéo HD à mes media player. Un très bon achat pour utilisation résidentielle.

Review Date: 02/09/14
Cons: - None so far.

Pros: - Good value ($24.99 on sale when I bought them).- Runs cool to the touch even with transfers going, very surprised at this as my Netgear and D-Link got hot quite hot.- Black shell doesn't stand out, but looks nice. LEDs are green.- Small for an 8 port.
- Picked up two of these to replace an old dying Netgear 5 port gigabit and a old D-link 8 port gigabit. Very satisfied so far, will be buying/recommending these in the future when needed for family/friends.

Review Date: 04/04/13
Cons: None

Pros: Excellent Throughput and reliability for a reasonable price.
Before you spend a lot of money on a managed switch for your home or SOHO network, check out the TL-SG1008D.I have been using this unmanaged switch for about two months now with great results. I routinely monitor network quality and there is no packet loss and excellent throughput.One of the things I like about this particular switch is its boring rectangular shape. With all of the funky shapes common with consumer network appliances, it's nice to have something plain that you can stack stuff on. My switch makes a nice stand for my Magic 8-Ball.Finding a great quality unmanaged switch - $29.Finding a base for your magic 8-ball - Priceless

Review Date: 04/01/13
Cons: none

Pros: smoking fast! 120MB/s - 200MB/s desktop to laptop, average 150MB/s+
Wow this thing is amazing.. didn't have enough ports on my NETGEAR router, this fixed that! my WNDR4500 only gets around 100MB/s average over the gigabit, this thing is half again more! costed $50 with 2x25ft cat5e cables including taxes and shipping! thank you NCIX!

Review Date: 03/26/13
Cons: Plastic case.

Pros: Cheap. Reliable. Plug & Play. Fast. Small.
Totally happy with this purchase. Arrived in 2 days with free shipping. Can't beat it. Hooked up the cables and plugged it in. Voila! Worked like a charm right off the bat. Sped up my PS3 connection from 17mb with WD Powerline to 33 mb with this switch. The WD unit was OK but started giving me erratic connection after a few days of heavy rain somehow affected my house wiring.No point spending more for this type of unit. Works perfectly and the price is right!

Review Date: 02/01/13
Cons: There is nothing bad about it

Pros: This is a good product, well worth your money , i recommend it.
This is a good product, well worth your money , i recommend it.

Review Date: 01/26/13
Cons: Plastic housing, LEDs only shows connected computer but does not tell rather computer is connected in 100 or 1000Mbps speed.Does not include vertical stands. These are not really cons considering the price was less than $20, cheapest gigabit switch at this time.

Pros: Cheap and runs cool
Got one instead of a Trendnet because this was cheaper, other than the plastic housing I don't think there is a difference in hardware inside and this runs pretty cool.

Review Date: 12/09/12
Cons: Plastic housing instead of metal

Pros: Price on sale ($17), plugs at the back with indicators in the front, worked right away with no issues
I got two of these to replace a failed netgeear unit which was being RMA'd. The price was unbelievably low in my opinion and they worked great immediately.

Review Date: 12/02/12
Cons: None so far

Pros: -Great switch!-Fast-Energy efficient
This is a great little switch. It's very small and is perfect for networking anything from your home network to that LAN party you've been planning all month. This is the first TP-Link product I have purchased and I will definitely be purchasing their products again.

Review Date: 03/31/11
Cons: None - maybe too lite, which causes the cables to pull the switch off the table?

Pros: Inexpensive, small, lite, not too bright, nothing to configure
This is a great switch. I'm using it on my home gigabit lan and it's connected to my wireless router 50 ft away. I'm using all Cat 5E cabling. I have been able to transfer at speeds of about 80 mb/s, which is probably bound by other equipment at that point. I have no complaints about it and would buy another one in an instant.

Review Date: 01/04/11
Cons: none, it's a switch...

Pros: 8 gbits portsPrice
I feel that for the money, TP-Link makes great equipment. I have used many brands and TP-Link works just as well as brands that cost twice as much.I had trouble streaming HD Video across my network but this solved it. I am now only limited by the speed of my computers and other devices.What else can I say, it just moves data.

TP-Link Gigabit Desktop Unmanaged Switch
The TP-Link Gigabit Desktop Unmanaged Switch should be your choice when it comes to network switches. You have 8 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet ports in this switch for quick transferring of files. The switching method used in this switch is store and forward. It has an 8K MAC address table. The switch supports IEEE 802.3x standards flow control in the case of full duplex mode. It also provides support for half duplex mode. You get a switching capacity of 16Gbps. The switch lowers the power consumption of your network using its innovative energy-efficient technology. You don?t need crossover cables due to its auto-MDI/MDIX function. The switch has both auto-learning and auto-aging of the MAC address. You have smart integration between the Mbps hardware due to its auto-negotiation ports. There is less noise due to the absence of fans. Installation is simplified by the plug and play design. Get your TP-Link Gigabit Desktop Unmanaged Switch and bring gigabit speed to desktop.

What It Is And Why You Need It:

  • Innovative energy-efficient technology; save you power
  • Switching capacity of 16Gbps; higher switching capacity
  • 8 10/100/1000Mbps ports; enables you to transfer large files
  • Lowers power needs when upgrading; reduces the carbon footprint left by your network


  • Gigabit Switch: Featured with 8 10/100/1000Mbps ports, TL-SG1008D greatly expands your network capacity, enabling instant large files transferring. So,power users in the home, office, workgroup, or creative production environment can now move large, bandwidth-intensive files faster. Transfer graphics, CGI, CAD, or multimedia files across the network instantly.
  • Go Green With Your Ethernet: You now have the choice to go green when upgrading to a gigabit network! This new generation TL-SG1008D 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch features the latest innovative energy-efficient technologies that can greatly expand your network capacity with much less power. It automatically adjusts power consumption according to the link status and cable length to limit the carbon footprint of your network.
    • Power down Idle Ports: When a computer or network equipment is off, the corresponding port of a traditional switch will continue to consume considerable amounts of power. The TL-SG1008D can automatically detect the link status of each port and reduce the power consumption of ports that are idle, resulting in up to an 80% reduction in power use.
    • Power Budget According to Cable Length: Ideally, shorter cables would use less power because of less power degradation over their length, this is not the case with most devices as they will use the same amount of power across the cable regardless of whether it is 10 or 50 meters in length. The TL-SG1008D analyzes the length of the Ethernet cable connected and adjusts the power usage accordingly, rather than keeping the power consumption in a conventional solution, saving up to 40% of power that would otherwise be wasted.
  • Easy to Use: The auto features of this gigabit switch make installation plug and play and hassle-free. No configuring is required. Auto MDI/MDIX eliminate the need for crossover cables. Auto-negotiation on each port senses the link speed of a network device (either 10, 100, or 1000 Mbps) and intelligently adjusts for compatibility and optimal performance.
