Ease of Use

My only complaint is that this very small switch (I was amazed at how small 8 ports have become) has an equally small fan inside. Since it's so small, it runs at what sounds like higher than normal RPM's. IE: it's pretty noisy. More noise than my tower computer with the case open and 4 internal (normal size) fans running! I don't recommend this model for desktop use where you will be sitting anywhere near it. It's really loud!

Other reviewers have stated an issue with Fan noise. I can state that my version purchased August 2006 has zero noise. Either Linksys was able to remove the fan due to electronic design changes or the fan is silent. I placed my ear up to it and it didn't make a sound and I unplugged it and plugged it back in just to make sure. The switch is small and works perfectly. The auto port detection works nicely and allows you to daisy chain other switches or hubs off this devices ports without having to buy special roll-over cables. It does it for you with no manual switches either. Nice feature. This is the perfect little 8-port switch.

I have little knowledge of networking. All I can say is that it works. I upgraded from a Linksys 100Mb switch. As soon as I plugged this baby in, my PC and NAS drives recognized the faster speed. I was planning on being up all night trying to figure out how to get this thing to work. It worked so I went to bed. Read More

Linksys standard quality -- it just works

by netwizzard on 10/25/2008

I had bought the Linksys 5 port gig switch and needed more ports. It meets all of my normal expectations for Linksys. With the price drop on the 8 port switch, the price/performance is outstanding. Just plug and go, like it should be. Read More

Product Overview

Harness the full power of your network over multiple devices, all from the comfort of your desk. Formerly Linksys Business Series, now Cisco Small Business Unmanaged Switches, the SD2008 Desktop Switch allows the connection of up to eight separate devices into your network. Unlike a network hub, this switch doesn't split your connection. Each device you connect to the SD2008 can tap into transfer speeds of up to a gigabit per second.

Integrated features like advanced store-and-forward packet switching and auto partitioning help ensure that the quality of the data passing through the switch is consistent and optimized. The SD2008 supports 10/100/1000 Mbps connections in either half- or full-duplex mode.
