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.
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.
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.Read more ›
