Style Name: Easy SmartSize: 8-Port Gigabit Verified Purchase
Since no one has written a review on this switch yet, I figured I'd give it a go.

It's a really great 8-port managed switch in my opinion. Does everything I want it to do, VLANS, QoS, Port Aggregation, and a lot more. Plus, it's gigabit, and managed, or "Web Smart" as they like to call it. No console, but there is a neat little utility it comes with to configure everything. Also, a neat feature that it has is a "Cable Test." it can diagnose Ethernet cables for you, tell you if they are crossed over, split pair, length to fault, etc... I found out that one of my cables was bad using this feature, which I thought was good and still somehow worked.

It runs great. Haven't noticed any issues what so ever, nor any reduction in speed. I've run some network speed tests, and get the same results through the switch as if I connected directly to the server.

On mine, all 8 ports are already connected, it's it is pretty much fully loaded most of the time. I also own this switch's older brother, the TP-Link TL-SG1016DE 16 Port Switch. They are both from the same product family, and work great together. Have them both set up together with LAGG.

This only con, at least for me, is that this switch DOES NOT have a web based management interface. You need to use the software utility that is included on the disk, or which you can download from TP-Link's website. You just get a blank page when you try to access the switch through a regular browser. It's a bit of a pain if you need to make a quick change from a different computer, but realistically, once you set up your configuration, you probably won't be making a lot of changes for the most part.

Style Name: Desktop UnmanagedSize: 8-Port Gigabit Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When it comes to unmanaged home gigabit ethernet switches, there isn't really much these days that would set one brand apart from another. Gigabit switches pretty much just sit there and do what they are supposed to do without notice, if they are built right. The specs for gigabit switching haven't changed at all over the years, so manufacturers have had to find other ways to set themselves apart. The battlefront these days seems to be who can build switches the smallest, the cheapest or use the least amount of power. TP-Link seems to have settled on the latter, with the release of it's 8 port TL-SG108 gigabit ethernet switch.

So, the question is... Did TP-LINK actually build a switch that uses less power than other models? Yes, they did. Although the tests I conducted were not under sterile, laboratory conditions, they are certainly accurate enough to show that the TP-Link switch uses significantly less power than switches sold just 2-3 years ago. Running idle (no connections or traffic) the TL-SG108 barely draws any current at all. Perhaps 1 Watt, at most, which is most likely consumed by the LEDs it displays to indicate that it is operational. This is a tad better than switches made a generation ago, but consistent with most other desktop switches made these days.

Under a full network load, the most power that I saw the switch consume was about 4 Watts. I used a consumer Kill-A-Watt brand power meter for testing purposes and set out to test some other 8 port desktop gigabit ethernet switches that I had at my office. Using the same ethernet connections on the same network (representing a similar network load) a handful of the newest switches I tested consumed roughly equal amounts of power.

JUNK. Power supply makes a varying high pitch noise. It. Is. Awful. If you have bad hearing, this switch is acceptable. Otherwise, avoid. I contacted the 24x7 support, and it goes to the call center in China. They said return to Amazon and get another. Amazon is awesome and shipped a replacement immediately. This new one also makes the same noise. The power supplies used are just too cheap. I did speed test the switch and it seems to achieve reasonable rates. Maybe you could use it in a closet or basement? I was using this at a kitchen desk (Desktop Switch) and it is too painful to be near. I included two spectrum captures to show how annoying the supply is... The one with green and red has no supply plugged in. Green is real time, Red is peak noise. My kitchen is pretty quiet. I then showed the green only with the high frequency noise. That capture clearly shows the noisy switching regulator harmonics. It would make a dog whine. TP-Link should do better. The capture was taken at a distance of 3 feet and measure at 45dB. Normal conversation is 65dB at 3 feet. A whisper is 30dB. Soooo....you have something between a whisper and normal conversation near lifeguard whistle frequencies. ENJOY!

Style Name: Easy SmartSize: 8-Port Gigabit Verified Purchase
I was setting up a pfSense firewall on an old Thinkpad with only one wired NIC. This setup pretty much required 802.1q VLANs to work, so I got this switch.

The switch is fast, quiet, and it just works. It has some really nice features that I'd only expect to see in much more expensive equipment like: Port Mirroring, IGMP snooping (for multicast), loop prevention, ect. It even has a simple cable test utility that checks if the cable is "Open" or "Normal" and gives you an estimated length in meters.

Now, as I've said, the real reason I got it was for 802.1q tagged VLANs- and this works great. I just want to point out an oddity compared to other more expensive switches that I've used... the PVID setting. Tagged/untagged ports should be familiar to anyone who uses enterprise switches. But the gotchya is that an untagged port setting only controls what VLAN can leave the port in an untagged state. Untagged traffic entering the port is assigned the port's PVID (port VLAN ID). So, if I have a port untagged in VLAN10, it's important that you also set the PVID for that port to 10 as well so that incoming traffic gets into VLAN 10.
I'm not sure why you'd ever want a PVID that's different from your untagged VLAN, but maybe someone smarter than me can come up with a reason....

Regardless, is this the best switch money can buy? Nah. But for the price range it's going for- it's amazing!

Update: Nearly 6 months later, and it's still going strong.
