IEEE 802.3x Flow Control 8 10/100Mbps ports Switch capacity: 1 Gbps Address table: 1024 entries MTBF: 116,186 hours

I understand the Gigabit snobbery but a lot of devices are getting less data hungry with high compression rates. CCTV cams are a great example. Great for dirty little offices that don't care about trunking ports so they can cheap out on structured cabling.


Other day was walking home from the station on phone to a friend. Got to a cross road and noticed on the grass poorly hidden under an old door was around 10+ boxes off this d-link. All sealed, just wet boxes. I ended up picking up 2 boxes, just for the sake off it. Got home opened one. Brand new. I didn't bother going back for the rest. Was a bit of a walk. Funny how these then came to be a deal on here. (y)


I agree with the Gigabit sentiment for future-proofing. However...the vast majority of home internet users will not have a single device that could utilise close to 100Mb/s. This is a good device for networking up, say, a Hue hub, Hive hub, CCTV box, NAS, Samsung TV, A/V Amp.


Not so fast ethernet. Spend a bit more on a gigabit one.


Yes, please do yourself a favour and look for gigabit instead!

Bought the 8 port for £5.99 with free delivery!


Bargain for what it is. Heat added. Most residential broadband connections are <100mb/s. Unless you're FTTP, or Virgin Media or HyperOptic or something, you're probably less than 80mb/s. So for consoles, set-top boxes etc you won't notice the difference between this and gigabit. If you are on a 300mb/s Virgin Media connection etc, then absolutely pay extra for gigabit if it's to hook up your computer or games console. If you're a bit geeky, pay even more again and make sure you have at least one managed "smart" gigabit switch in your house or in your kit. If you ever have to troubleshoot something weird with your network, it can be worth its weight in gold.

Nonsense. Max Virgin speed is 350 Mbit (Megabit). This cable provide max speed 1000 Mbit (Megabit).

Good morning Folks! Not going to lie, I was a bit confused by the warranty too; when I purchased I only selected the 1 year. Just got off the call to them - the guy explained that the first year will be under LG themselves, and then the next 4 years which RGB Direct will help you file in, will be under D&G; RGB Direct will send you another warranty form within 4 weeks.

Fair enough. You make valid points there. I've no personal experience with any of that to be fair.


It's good...but it's not right ;) I only have a finite amount of gaming time as it is. If I have that much time to wait for stuff to load I may as well buy myself a Commodore 64 + tape loader - it might actually load games quicker :p


Why bother with a switch? In my case I've got a workstation and a server I use as a NAS. I could hook the two together with one add-in card each. The NAS/server has gigabit ethernet and my ancillary services ARM boards do too. I can use the NAS as a gateway between IB and ethernet networks, then the only switch I need is a regular gigabit ethernet one. As for cables it does look like you get a worse deal with IB. I just think that when you're paying a hundred or more for a basic point to point 10gig link you might as well spend not much more for 40gig :D


It's as if people can't understand why posts are quoted! (y)


tempted. my nas can do 400MB/sec or about 4Gbit. .. which is more than my current 2 x 1Gbit NICs in LACP bond that gives me about 200MB/sec so I could double my speed to the NAS with this.

I'm going to sell Gaming Water It's just regular bottled water but for gamers (flirt)


Is it optimised for Fortnite ?! lol




Also, you're missing my point. Obviously direct connection is going to be better, but you're talking about people connecting 8 devices directly to their router? It looks messy, and is a health and safety nightmare. I took the liberty of Googling some of the popular ISPs and it seems qos doesn't exist at all on most of them. I would never buy this personally, but you can't just throw something out the window for everyone else just because it doesn't apply to you lol. If you bought a couple of home plugs, paired with this you would have 8 devices in a room on the other side of the house. Any 24/7 devices/servers you could set Qos to low and leave them running in the other side of the house. No mess, and people with any landlords/parents don't need to upgrade the router. I don't think it hurts the product at all.


The reason I posted my first post was because I thought the QOS implemented in this switch is exceedingly basic and it is going to have to go through your existing router/modem in which case that would influence the priority of the new switch making it less effective than going straight to the router/modem itself! But, my current ISP (the Post Office) supplied router is amazing versatile. QOS can be prioritised by ip, packet length,precedence, etc, there is also queue assignment on the various ports, complete routes can be classified between the various interfaces and a games list of fifteen modern games! For gaming, nothing is going to be better than going straight to the router/modem itself (by ethernet connection) because any new switch is going to have to connect to it anyway. So don't waste your money on this fancy looking but plastic (^ ^) version of this switch.

Can't see that price


Even with powerline many of us still need a switch. For example in a standard family home you could have your TV, DVD player (for updates) and PS4 connected.


You can get a proper non blocking switch for about 10 quid. So unless you don't have any network storage and/or all your equipment only runs in the 10/100 range this is a bad idea. Actually it's a bad idea anyway because for another 5 quid you will be covered for most future outcomes.


Perfect bought it after finding out sky's "superhub" only has two ports! Don't need over 100mbs unless you have a PC with a network drive.


If your internet speed is less than 100mbit you'll be fine with it because that would bottleneck all devices connected to your router. The only time when this would not be great when you're transferring huge files within the home network. Then again how often would that happen unless you're running servers?

comparing with these 2 TP-LINK TL-SG1008D 8-Ports Gigabit Desktop Ethernet Switch vs NETGEAR GS308-100UKS 8 Port Gigabit Ethernet Desktop/Wallmount Switch ,, wich one should i get it ? thank you


Yes it is ok to use with Powerline.


Fine with a power adaptor. It is how I use mine...The powerline will basically "bridge" one route to the other and what you have either end is of no relevance to the powerline. I may get one of these. I have a TP Link currently behind my TV but my Kodi just will not stream so I don't know if it is the network switch, my new TV or my new Amp that is causing the issue at the moment!


I would have thought this was fine to use with a powerline adapter ... if you buy from zon , they pay no tax, but customer returns are good (Your morals may vary) :)

This review on Amazon kills the product dead: "Product quality is great, but let me explain why it deserves only 2-star. Imagine you have remotely located router which serves as internet access point, now you connect it to network and all work great... until you switch off your PC, TV or local network would be inactive (at night, for instance). Then you will end up with HomePlug on the side of your router going to power saving mode and the only way to deactivate this mode is to reset this plug (unplugging it). There is no official way you can deactivate this mode. Some people tried deactivating it via Zyxel utility, but it doesn't save this state (it saves it in utility, but plugs would go to power saving mode anyway). Netgear Manufacturer states on their official page that it can't be deactivated and they do not plan to add this possibility in the future. It is beyond my understanding as other manufacturers have the option to deactivate this mode. 4x plugs have been returned and will go with the alternatives. Just be aware."


Nice. Quick question who here actually gets more then 200mbs ? I get 150 at uni in east london and 20 max at home.


You missed one


There are different chipset vendors - products marketed as 2000Mbps primarily use Qualcomm chipsets whereas products marketed as 1200Mbps tend to use Broadcom. They achieve their speeds in different ways (bandwidth etc) and the way the marketed speed is determined also seems to vary slightly (neither has any basis in reality). Without getting too technical, most tests find 2000Mbps products to be not significantly better than 1200Mbps products - and in many cases worse.


any good? is it better than AV500 TP-link??

From where?


Hence why I started off my comment with the words "not saying these aren't any good but a warning in general."


Yes but these are sold by Amazon themselves plus they are made of 100% copper not alu and to be fair they are not eBay or China and come on it's an Ethernet Cable for 80p


Not saying these aren't any good but a warning in general to watch out for dodgy Ethernet cables. Ebay in particular is full of them. If you don't mind paying the extra, Excel Networking make excellent quality cables and networking equipment in general.

It's £2. Does what you need. You also give a home to an orphan.


If your tv had an internet connection, any wired device connected to it (console, sky box, blu-ray) could receive it too without a need for its own connection to your router. THATS THE THEORY However none of the hardware manufacturers adopted it’s potential (I think the terminology is Orphaned Tech). So it’s likely the only thing you havethat’s HDMI Ethernet capable, is the cable itself.


but one end goes into a display... i honestly cant see this being useful


Any device needing an HDMI cable can use HDMI with Ethernet cable as it is fully backwards compatible. This cable feature allows your internet-ready entertainment devices, from gaming consoles to Blu-ray Disc players and more, to share an internet connection without any need for a separate Ethernet cable.

Seems most home entertainment manufacturers abandoned the idea pretty early on. So your hdmi cable can do it, but it’s unlikely any of us have devices to make use of it. Which is a shame


Do all TVs with Ethernet allow it


the idea is that you have one device that's connected to your router (ie the TV). then everything connected to the TV (sky box, DVD/blue-ray player, playstation/xbox) gets it's internet via the TV. i think the idea was to declutter multiple wire cables and/or reduce wireless device connections. but the idea never caught on. reading up on it, it appears some folk who require v v v long HDMI cables (eg feeding to a Sky signal into a summer house in the back garden) plug the hdmi cable into an ethernet adapter for the necessary length, have another adapter at the other end to convert it back to HDMI, then plug is into the device.


Not even sure how it’s supposed to work
