Cheap-small works

Have been looking for a small switch for a while now and this product fit the bill small and lite as the entire enclosure is made of plastic. The only negative thing is the fact is has an external AC Adapter but that's what you get if you want a small form factor product. Plug and Play, has been working fine for 3 month so far with no issues. The other good item is the produce comes with a life time warranty.

Cheap & cheerful

Works as I expected it to, so far. Wish there was a little less plastic, but oh well. Great table-top switch: indicators in front, jacks in back so less spaghetti to look at. No complaints so far.

So I get home from work and my dad calls me upstairs into our home office and tells me he bought this thing. I'm think, "Oh god... why would you buy a D-Link product?" But for the price and for what we needed, he thought (and I hoped) that it would do the trick. We plugged everything in and turned it on and then... it worked!! Who would have thought a D-Link would have worked right out of the box? Anyways, it does what it has to do and works well.

Wow is this great

Added this to my home network. Now I can stream when the whole family is also streaming. Like they say, plug and play. Nice especially for the price. No worries.

D-Link 16-Port Unmanaged Gigabit Switch (DGS-1016A

It's unmanaged so there is not much to say, you just plug it in and it works. Getting great speeds now on my internal LAN. Price seemed reasonable compared to other 16 port gigabit switches out there.

Great network switch!

This switch is so easy to setup, and works great right out of the box. I had several cables leading from one bedroom, and across my wall into my PC, Apple TV and PS3. I plugged one cable into the switch, and ran the 3 cables from the switch into the PC, Apple TV and PS3. Each got an IP address immediately, and were working in seconds. I even find now that streaming video to my PC is improved since I installed the switch. Before I would get network errors if I paused the video when streaming. Now I don't get any such problems. I highly recommend this switch to anybody. If you're looking to clean up your cabling & improve your network performance, I highly recommend get this switch.
