So far so good

on 8/15/2013

I've had this only a short time but it was easy to set up and use. Just plugged it in and started running a gigabit speeds. Time will tell how long it lasts but it's great so far.

I have been using this switch for approximately one month now. I bought it to expand the wired network capabilities in my home. Having the ports on the rear of the unit was extremely important to me. Almost all other 16 port gigabit switches I found had the ports on the front of the unit. It was also important that the switch I bought had 10, 100, 1000 Mips capability as my home network has a mixture of devices of varying connectivity speeds. This unit has functioned superbly with no issues whatsoever. I had read in reviews on other sites that users were having problems with the unit dying shortly after purchase. Not for me so far. Throughput across the ports is great. My network is not bogging down regardless of the amount of traffic. The "green" function is icing on the cake as my system is up and running 24/7! I would recommend this switch to anyone wanting to expand their network or to just add a switch to it. It has not disappointed me in the least.

Product Overview

Gigabit on Every Port
The 16-Port Unmanaged Gigabit Switch series brings the speed of Gigabit Ethernet to each and every port for a truly high-speed network. If your network has a mix of legacy and modern computing capabilities, each port allows for standard Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, or Gigabit Ethernet connections. You have the latest technology available to every computer and device connected to your network.

Innovative Design
The sleek plastic case of the DGS-1016A series is an industry first for a Gigabit SOHO/SMB switch. Using a compact desktop style helps reduce heat levels and allow for a fanless design, making the switches silent, as well as economical. The 16-Port Unmanaged Gigabit Switch series is small, lightweight, wall-mountable, and ideal for any business with big needs and a small budget.

Conserves Energy
The 16-Port Unmanaged Gigabit Switch series helps you conserve energy automatically through several methods. It automatically powers down ports that have no link, allowing the switch to save substantial amounts of power by cutting power usage for unused ports or any ports connected to computers that have been shut down. It can also detect connected cable lengths, and adjusts power usage accordingly, helping you save energy without affecting networking performance.

Think Green
The DGS-1016A 16-Port Unmanaged Gigabit Switch series makes use of D-Link Green Ethernet technology, providing more energy savings and a longer product life, without sacrificing operational performance or functionality. These environmentally friendly switches are also RoHS compliant, use recyclable packaging, and minimize the use of harmful substances.
