Self-Regulating Features

With the Cisco SD2005, you can upgrade your existing 10/100 Ethernet network to Gigabit speed without any additional equipment. Automatic medium dependent interface (MDI) and MDI crossover (MDI-X) detection on all ports ensures that the correct cable type is selected. Auto speed negotiation allows each port to independently and automatically negotiate for the best speed and half- or full-duplex mode. Address Learning and Aging is supported, as well as 802.3x flow control with head-of-line blocking prevention to optimize your network performance. Fast store-and-forward switching prevents damaged packets from being passed onto the network.

Compact and Reliable

The SD2005's no-fan design helps ensure silent switch operation, with a compact size provides multiple placement options. Cisco reliability and a limited lifetime warranty help provide peace of mind.

If I could give this switch zero stars, I would.

The unit cannot connect at Gigabit speeds and only negotiates to 10 and 100 megabit, also has lots of packet loss.

I have had the Linksys SD2005 switch replaced by Cisco 3 times and each time it never lasts more than 4 months.

Real quickly, I'm a network administrator for one of the largest websites in the US, so I'm not clueless when it comes to these devices. Like all the positive reviewers here, I was very happy with this unit when I first bought it. Worked like a charm, fast, cheap - what more could I ask for? Well how about a unit that didn't go belly up due to Linksys cutting corners on parts?

Apparently some versions of the SD2008 and SD2005 had fans, but they have been cut out. Now these little buggers overheat, and when they do, it can cause capacitors to go bad which basically kill it's ability to operate in gigabit mode. In fact, several of my computers (and I've tried all sorts of NICs/computer combos) just repeatedly drop connection in a neverending loop. Nice work Linksys.

I've read on forums that many others have the exact same problem - usually takes months for it to show up. One guy actually tore his apart, and saw the blistered/bulging components that had overheated and replaced them (hope you're handy w/a soldering iron.)

Hi Steven, Sorry for the trouble you experienced with our product! We have very high quality standards for our products, and design and engineer our switches according to industry standards. In response to complaints about noise, we developed a fanless design for these switches. To ensure it maintains an optimal operating temperature, correct placement of the switch is important. You can find this information in the Quick Start Guide at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/csbus/sd2005/quick_start/guide/SD2005_QuickStart.pdf.
Also, we're committed to proactively addressing any problems with our products and encourage you to contact Small Business support at https://supportforums.cisco.com/community/netpro/small-business/sbcountrysupport for further investigation into your problem. If the issue can't be resolved, we'll replace the switch if it's within the warranty period.

I work in systems/network support. Our department has bought 6 of these switches over the past year (not all in one purchase, but 1 at a time as needed). 3 out of the 6 have now failed as others have mentioned in their reviews. The switches worked great for the first few months, but suddenly failed. Post-failure, they provide a 'gigabit' link, but throughput is < 100 Kbps. If I could give this switch zero stars, I would. Don't waste your money on this switch.

You'll get the switch, you'll love it and write a great review. Then in a few weeks or months it will start going flakey. Eventually it will die completely. You'll hate it. Do us all a favor and wait a few months before you a write a breathless review about how great this is, and you'll save a lot of people trouble. Cisco should be sued over the uniformly poor quality of these switches.

Here's a hint: if a company like Cisco won't put their name front and center on a product, it's probably because they're cutting corners. LinkSys is the brand Cisco uses when they want to sell crap but don't want to tarnish their own image. Real IT people know the LinkSys is Cisco's code for "we really phoned in this one."

I have two SD2005 V1.2 5 port gigabit switches and one SD2008. One of the SD2005 V1.2 switches went bad, and I can easily verify by replacing it with the other used in another room.

The unit cannot connect at Gigabit speeds and only negotiates to 10 and 100 megabit, also has lots of packet loss.

I called for an RMA and was told that the product was outside of telephone support warranty period, but was entitled to replacement- however; in order to get a replacement, the $74 fee for troubleshooting over the phone was necessary! They will not allow you to open an RMA without troubleshooting over the telephone!

Being a Network and Systems admin this is insulting-- then the price of $74 when I can just go out and buy a brand new unit for around $50?! Linksys has lost a customer forever- and I hope that those of you reading this review investigate this for yourselves and DO NOT purchase items from a company like this. Deplorable, disgusting and absolutely shady behavior... I will be contacting the Better Business Bureau immediately.

Here's the deal. Look carefully at the picture on the Amazon product page. It's the new Version 3 COMPLETELY REDESIGNED - in the plastic case. I have two of these now that Cisco sent me as warranty replacements for the hopelessly horrible metal-case versions of this product. THESE HAVE NONE OF THE PROBLEMS OF THE PREVIOUS MODEL. They run very cool without the ridiculous fan. They support jumbo packets. They (so far 7000+ operating hours) are working just fine. Despite the perplexing decision on Cisco's part to use the same model number, Amazon should have created an entirely new product page that doesn't include the (correct) negative reviews from the previous ill-conceived incarnation of this thing.

As such, I can now recommend these.

An FYI for owners of the problematic versions: They have a "limited lifetime warranty". While you can mod them yourself and get them working by substituting a polymer cap for the aluminum electrolytic one that keeps blowing up, there's no reason to do that. You can get an RMA from Cisco (lotsa luck with the phone call, but be persistent, you'll get through to the right place eventually) and they will send you a brand new replacement of this new plastic-cased version. Problem solved. We hope.

Previous (one-star) review of the metal-case version:
Two of these things, just over a year old, have both failed the same way: packet loss, inability to sync at 1Gbit, just like the other reviewers have warned. There's no reason to waste your time and money on this garbage when there are so many alternatives that won't cause you so much grief. Too bad, too. They're nicely made with sturdy metal housings that *look* like they should last forever. Unfortunately Cisco/Linksys seems to think that "forever" is measured in months.

Hi Steven!

We are glad you are overall satisfied with the SD2005. The new version definitely solves some of the problems mentioned in your previous review. Thank you for taking the time to re-rate us again. We appreciate the positive feedback.

This worked for a short period of time, after which network speeds were awful. For no obvious reason -- as others have reported -- it will only work at 10mbits now. Even with a 3 foot cat6 cable. Replacing this with other gigabit switches (and no other changes) results in instant gigabit speeds.

It took a while to diagnose the network issues I was seeing where the SD2005 was involved. Reading these reviews, or having connection speed LEDs like my other switches, would have saved a lot of time and frustration. Now I know why Linksys doesn't want you to be able to see the connection speeds!
