I'll expand by saying, for the extra money it isnt really a better deal, The TPLink Gigabit switches are excellent (Ive been using one for about a year now) and as they are just dumb switches the netgear offers nothing over this one.

Very good price. I just bought a 16 port gigabit switch from ebuyer for … Very good price. I just bought a 16 port gigabit switch from ebuyer for £58. Just wished 2 of these could be used and continue with the same speeds throughout.My switch is on the parcelforce van as i type. . . Cant wait to see if gigabit will make a noticable difference on my network.



You can daisy chain switches, but I am not sure what happens to the sharing of bandwidth. ie Say if the network HDD and one PC were on one switch while two other PCs were connected to the second switch and every PC was pulling from the network HDD, then the bandwidth is shared evenly across the two ports even though one of those ports leads to another switch which then feeds two more PCs. Is this what you meant?

You should see an improvement, but it also depends on the HDD speed of the computers. My mediaPC has a 1TB & a 1.5TB, I get 24 MBytes/sec from the 1TB and 42 MBytes/sec from the other across my network.

I think you would need it with the Netgear switch, what with all the reported problems with them...

Would love to go gigabit, but unfortunately I rely on homeplugs at the mo. Still I don't experience any problems streaming HD videos with the current set up.

Those particular Netgear switches?

We have a handful of Netgear switches at work, many moons old and never hand any trouble with them. Don't use them in the main infrastructure though.

These TP-Links are fine for a home or small business setup, and at £20 a pop it wouldn't be the end of the world if it went bang a few years down the line. Buy a couple and leave a spare lying around, just in case, for a quick hot-swap

Dumb in the context of a network switch means there's no management capability to set ports at particular duplex/speed settings, and no way to look at statistics like port utilization.

More than 50% extra cost for (effectively) an extended warranty is not a good deal IMHO.

I ordered one of these last week
it was dispatched today

Brand means nothing these days
they all use the same chipsets

I have seen 2 pcb's to these switches
one with a broadcom chipset and one with a realtek chipset

I have ordered this to replace a Netgear GS608 thats like a mini nuclear reactor

TL-SG1008D uses broadcom chipset, a lot better than the realtek/ralink crap out there.
