Did not meet customer's need, but might please most,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SG1024D 10/100/1000Mbps 24-Port Gigabit 13-inch Rackmountable Switch, 48Gbps Capacity (Personal Computers)
The TP-Link TL-SG1024D unmanaged switch did not connect correctly with some gigabit devices on the network, connecting at 100mb whether device was set for auto or 1000mb, and it seemed to have problems with jumbo frames. Since it is an unmanaged switch there was not much to do to tweak it. I suspect it would be fine in most environments where it is the only switch and the network is confined to one physical location. The price is certainly attractive. The vendor, Datavision Computer Video, issued an RMA almost immediately and was superb throughout the return process.

I ran into a similar issue with this device, where it would not set the devices to Gigabit. I thought it was a NIC hardware issue at first but after the problem repeated, I realized the culprit. While plugged in to all the computers, I reboot the switch and everything detected at Gigabit speed. Also, occasionally I had the issue to where if the DHCP lease expired from the router then the computer will not connect to the network unless the switch was rebooted. This was a rare issue and since I replaced our main Router/Service and changed all computers to static IP addresses the problem no longer occurs.

What brand/model worked the best?

Hi, L. I'm not sure if you were asking this of me, but I'll answer. I do not even remember what I used at this point since it was for a temporary client some time ago. I generally work with what my clients want unless it is completely inappropriate for the situation. If they have no idea what they want, I usually specify Cisco since I, they, or any service provider they use in the future probably has experience with it. Like I said, the vendor was great and the switch was not bad; it just did not work in this situation. Unless there is a reason not to, I recommend managed switches in order to monitor and tweak performance.
