Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Although my profession is technology, I'm still surprised how my simple home network has morphed. Only a few years back, a simple cable modem/router was all I needed to hook up all there was. Now it seems every device in the house has a web interface. Every little cluster of technology needs its own switch to get all the toys online. Over that time, network switches have gone from chunky forbidding boxes to simple plug-and-play devices. In general, this WD switch meets that profile: plug in the power supply, connect one port to the home network and connect the other ports to a stack of local devices.

But WD adds a nice little twist--prioritization. While most routers targeted toward the home offer some prioritization, it's often too coarse to set up ideally. Western Digital has helped out by prioritizing the ports on this switch. Two are high-priority (your media devices should go there), a few are medium-priority (computers), and the rest are low-priority (printers, security cams, refrigerators). In most instances there will be no effect at all on your network performance. But at busy times, proper priority will keep the video from stuttering while Aunt Edna is busily updating her Facebook page.

It seems that Western Digital has strongly committed to the sophisticated home network. They have media players, flexible NAS devices, routers, and now this little switch. I own a lot of their stuff and have found it to give a real bang for the buck. While there are certainly technology companies with more familiar names, WD is doing a great job at putting it all together.

The switch itself is fine, however I spent an hour on amazon chat asking why when I buy something from a US company, shipped from the US to the US, do I need to adapt to the domestic Power outlet? This thing ships with the UK power adapter, with a US adapter that makes it stick out like 4 inches from the wall.

Amazon assured me that it must have been the reseller "Dreamcoil"'s fault. However I contacted them and they said it was Western Digitals doing. Amazon told me to order it again and they promised it would ship with the US power plug. It didn't. Now I have two of these both with incorrect power adapters. I called Western Digital and expressed my discontent with needing to adapt to a domestic standard of power. They're shipping me an adapter. The description of this product should WARN PEOPLE THAT THIS SHIPS WITH AN UNWIELDY HUGE POWER ADAPTER THAT THEN REQUIRES ANOTHER ADAPTER TO CONNECT TO THEIR OUTLET.

I orderd this little switch by mistake because one of my media devices brought down my netgear switch. Then I found out most of the positive reviews here are from Vine reviewers. I requested to cancel but too late and here comes the mini review.
WD is not known for making network equipment and the low price really made me wonder about spending my time to test it. I did plug in and started a quick transfer of ripped DVD files from my NAS to test out the QoS feature and i got the same speed around 67MB/s ( ubuntu 12) so it's not bad. I put it back to the box thinking of giving it away. I can't stand the fact that there are many viewers are from Vine progam but not from actual users so I decided to test myself and publicized the truth.
I don't have fancy test equipment so I copied ripped DVD files from Nas to windows8 and windows 7 PC and between two PC using shared folder. I was shocked that I got 90-112MB/s when transferring files from my NAS to my PCs. Transferring 2.9GB ISO file from Win7pc to Win8 pc reached about 90MB/s. I also enabled the jumbo frames on both PCs and the switch has no problem forwarding the data. The only thing I can't tell whether the switch throughput 2000mb/s full duplex is per port or total.
My old switch, netgear GS608v2, could not handle CAT6 cable and the speed falls back to 100mb/s. For that reason I have to connect cat6 cables to the router which is ok but not ideal for some scenarios. Let's say my NAS has Cat5e connected to the switch and my PC has Cat6 connected to the router so when streaming video from the Nas to PC, the router may not handle the streaming from Netflix to an IPad at the same time
So I feel comfortable to put the WD on duty.

Bought this switch for my network. Unpacking it I was confused since the ac adapter was clearly for overseas. There was an adapter included that fit over the prongs so that it could be used in the US. Unfortunately this made the prong end of the ac adapter about three inches long. When plugged in the adapter wiggled so much that the power cut in and out. I called Western Digital about a replacement power adapter but was told that since this is a discontinued item that an adapter was not available. I found it interesting that WD said that the warranty on the product ran out two years ago but since I had just purchased it that that was not a problem. Anyway Amazon was going to reimburse me for the cost of another power adapter. Well, finding a power adapter to the specs of this one 5v 1.5a 7.5w was impossible. WD said that the specs needed to be exact. I returned the item to Amazon. I am so grateful to Amazon for their great return policy.
