Nice Switch, But.....This is a vefry basic, well desgined swith excepot for one unfortunate feature that prevented me from being able to use it in my home office IT equipment setup.The power jack is on the opposite side from the eight RJ45 ethernet jacks. Had it been on the same side I could have used it. The photo on Amazon shows only the side where the RJ45 jacks are located; it does not show the opposite side of the unit where the power jack is located. And I didn't make the correct inference when I saw it and ordered.Seems like a minor quibble but in the location where this was to have been placed, all of the cords and cables need to be out of site - i.e., on the back. I make a point of cabling (tying together) cable and cord bundles behind my IT shelf so as to hide the wiring in my office. Actually I wanted a switch where the front panel has an led for each port that indicates "traffic", and all wiring connections in the rear. This one is a great buy with usual Linksys quality, but a bit too basic for me. If I could hide the entire switch that would be fine but thats not what I want nor is it practial in my IT furniture arrangement. So this one is being returned. I'll search for a fancier unit.3WOWSERS!This review is for the 8 port switch. High quality materials, professional appearance. I'm using at home/small home business office environment but it would be equally at home in an office office. When first connected, I saw 10% of the speeds I was expecting on my primary device and there is no way for the user to configure QOS or priorities. Not sure why this made a difference, but here's what I did: disconnected and turned off all network devices. Power cycled the switch. Connected my internet connection in the first port. My primary desktop connected to the second port. My bitcoin miner connected to port 8. I will have other computers and miners connected down the road but for now that's all.Powered everything back on and WOW! Ping times and download/upload speeds are actually FASTER than before I installed the switch. I haven't experimented with Skype yet but "regular" VOIP calls using Ekiga and SFLphone are just as clear and reliable as they've always been.If you've read my other reviews on Amazon, you know I'm really stingy with my stars but this switch is absolutely awesome. Well done, Linksys!5Does what it should and does it well - 8-PortVERY IMPORTANT: This review is specifically about the 8-Port switch. Many features and considerations regarding this switch DO NOT APPLY to other options, especially the 16 and 24-Port versions.Updated May 28th 2015 due to specification changes.It's an unmanaged switch. It gets data from place to place with Plug and Forget simplicity. Why buy this over the less-expensive SE2800? There are several reasons you may want to. Read on... The Praise (Good Things) + All metal construction for a sturdy switch+ Runs cool+ Gigabit capability+ No Head-of-Line blocking, contention handling, and flow control+ Uplink Autodetection (MDI/MDIX)+ QoS handling The Raze (Bad Things) - Inconsistent product package content inclusion The Haze (Things to Consider) * Unmanaged switch* Port lights on the front, cabling on the back* External power converter The Details...I said it at the top and I will say it here again: This review applies ONLY to the 8-Port version. The 16-Port and 24-Port versions have substantially different features and specifications and this review cannot accurately inform you on them. With that being said...It was time to move from an integrated wireless router to a separate Wireless Access Point,Router, and Switch. I didn't want to spend a lot of money, so I snagged an SE2800. Then I returned that, did some better research, and I grabbed this. One month later it's been put through the basic paces and I can give some information and things for people to consider.The one and only disappointment I've had with this switch is that I ended up acquiring three of them (for various reasons) and one package did not contain the rubber feet. Sealed package. No feet. Sad me. Otherwise, I am quite very happy with this switch.Automatic MDI/MDIX detection is pretty standard these days and simply means that you can plug in an uplink without having to worry about whether it needs a crossover cable.Quality of Service (QoS) tagging is a very good thing to have if you do anything with in-home video or audio streaming. It helps ensure that time-sensitive data gets to where it's going without waiting for things like that huge file you're copying to the other computer. After all, the wait is only a few fractions of a second, but that's enough to make your video all blocky and icky.The 8-Port version has an external power supply and the ones I received are skinny to the left. This is a great way to keep the transformer away from the plug beneath or above the one used, but iff you have side by side plugs on a power strip, this will end up blocking the leftward plug.It's also nice to note that the 8-Port switch has a very clean face. It is made to be a desktop switch, with wiring and cables in the back and a clean front to give basic connection information. This does create a less-ideal situation if the switch is wall-mounted, as the wall mount holes will only accommodate mounting with the cables up or down. As a person with cats, I have to have the switch well off the ground, and this makes viewing the status lights impossible without standing very close to the switch to see the top surface, or mounting it with the cables up which I personally do not prefer to do. I would have loved to have had sideways mounting options. Ahh well. Why not go cheaper?Now I am a frugal person. I originally got the Linksys SE2800 a a local store but then that was returned in favor of this. But why? Why would I spend nearly an extra 25% (at the time of writing) on this switch? Simple: My network is important to me. My network is also important to my wife. My wife is important to me too. That and the fact that if the network has problems, I get to sleep in the car.This switch does not bump up the price just because of the metal case versus the plastic mushroom-case on the SE2800. There is more to it. FEATURES! But what do they mean?Both switches will deal with Quality of Service (QoS) tagging. That is important if you do anything like streaming video, voice calls, and other time-sensitive things on your network. But this switch has some extra things that make it that head above the other.--- "Non head-of-line blocking architecture"This one is nice. Now, mind you, this will only affect you if you have more than two things connected to the switch, so if you are just using it to pipe data between two computers, you can ignore this feature. But if you are using a lot of ports, or especially if you have a file server or other network device that has a lot of traffic going to it, this feature will give you an improvement in network performance.When two or more pieces of data arrive at the same time that need to go to the same place, the switch can only send one at a time. Head-of-line blocking (HOL Blocking) means that while it makes the second (and third and fourth) arrival locations wait, it also makes the pieces of data BEHIND those initial pieces wait too. By avoiding head-of-line blocking, the switch is able to move other data in front of the pieces that have to wait and send them on their way without impacting network speed. This is like the waiting spot at McDonald's drive through. Somebody ordered $50 worth of stuff, so they can wait there for it to be ready while other people who just wanted to get a drink are able to be handled without having to wait.--- "Full-duplex IEEE 802.3x flow control" (and the rest)Notably, it's the "And the rest" part that is important here. The SE2800 does support 802.3x, however there was no indication that it would deal properly with half-duplex backpressure and especially broadcast rate control. The SE2800 is not an incapable switch. This is just a more-capable switch. In all honesty, in most home-use cases, you'll never encounter a need for this, however if you know you need it, or ever do encounter a case where it is helpful, it will save you a tremendous amount of sadness. It's a fancy way of saying that the switch helps take more intelligent control of the traffic in the event of something unexpected or mixed old and new technology.Overall, in testing, the core of the switch runs cooler and this switch has more switching capacity than the SE2800. Built metal toughI mentioned I have cats. Nightmare creatures from beyond the void whom I love dearly, but their destructive prowess cannot be topped by anything short of a bulldozer driven by a maniac elephant. Even their fur is a bane to computers. Remember that SE2800 I returned? Plastic. Yeah... It was not pretty. Summary - Worthwhile for a stable, reliable network I love my wife and she loves me, but that won't stop her from getting grumpy if our network has problems. I don't like a grumpy wife, so this switch has been an excellent solution. The additional features it carries over the SE2800 also make it a very worthwhile investment despite its higher cost. The best part is that the cats have not yet succeeded at even dinging it.Take a look at the info I give you and you should be able to tell if this is the best purchase for you. If there's not enough information, let me know what questions you have and I'll try to find out and let you know.As always, please let Amazon and I know if my review is helpful to you. If it's not, let me know why in a comment so I can give better information in the future. I monitor my comments and reply to questions, and I do updates on reviews when I am able.5Working exactly as it should!I purchased this to replace a Trendnet 16-port switch which had failed two times in a few years span. I own a Linksys Router and it works great so I figured I would spend a little more and get the Linksys switch. Smart move so far. It is working great and was very simple to install. There is really nothing to configure since it is unmanaged so it s just plug in and go.The only negative I found was that it doesn t come with a bracket to mount it vertical as shown in my photo. The bracket included is meant for a rack style system to mount it horizontal. I used the included bracket and secured them to my mounting board vertically. I then used VHB Double Sided Tape to secure the switch on the back and bottom of both sides. It holds very well and I don t foresee any issues. I will update this review in case of any failures but so far so good!5A good basic 16 port Gig switch for 16 monthsI have a SE3016 switch which is now about 26 months old. it is a good basic 16 port Gigabit switch, but at about 16 months of age it started having some "hung port" issues.The problem seems to randomly affect one of the 16 ports and that port becomes inoperative, yet the port's indicator lights indicate there is still a link. Another week or two goes by and then a second port becomes inoperative, and so on. Unplugging the switch for 10 seconds clears the problem for about a month, then the problem repeats.The problem is easy to detect. When suddenly you can't get anywhere on the Internet, I put in the local IP address of my router (a Linksys LRT 224) - 192.168.0.1. If it responds, then most likely both of my WAN connections are down (sometimes happens). If I can't reach the switch and yet I still have link lights on the computer and the switch, the switch port has hung and it is time to reboot the switch.Cable length is not a factor. There is a 3' cable between the switch and this computer, and this port has hung. Ports connected to runs of about 100' have hung, the port my WAP is connect to has hung, the port to another switch has hung. The port hangs don't seem to have anything in common.ALL of my network gear is plugged into a UPS (I have eight UPS units in my home, with "on battery" times ranging from 25 minutes backup for computers to 10 hours backup for network gear). Thus, no power surges. All power is conditioned.I've asked friends (who also work in IT) and one other with an SE3016 has the same problem. I don't know how widespread the problem is, just that two of us have encountered it. He is going to flash the firmware over his winter holiday vacation and I'll probably try doing the same. Maybe it will fix the problem, maybe it will brick the switch.Despite the problem, I still like the switch, and when all ports are working, it gives great throughput. ... and I've bought a second SE3016.4The "New age" of internet signal routingJust the perfect thing to update my Cisco Linksys router. I just plugged it up in place of my old E2500 unit, and it worked perfectly w/o a bunch of code-entering. This should have been possible years ago. It allows signal strengths over 100 Mbps to pass through to your connected units. No one tells us that the old routers were limited to 100 Mbps, so unless someone verbally tips you off or you're on some special program to keep you abreast of new products and how they solve old problems, you're out in the cold. This type of unit is call an "unmanaged system, whereas the older Linksys I have is a "magaged" one (meaning, I suppose that you have enter all the code choices in the setup so that it will work properly). Until the unmanaged ones came out, we've been in the "dark ages" of internet connections. Your kids won't ever have this miserable history of experiences and costly visits from your IT guy(s) at home.5It works. what more can you ask for?Over the years of our home network building, we never got around to purchasing a router with more than four ports. That became problematic when we evolved into two primary desktop computers, two printers and a few notebook computers, not to mention a television that prefers CAT6 cable to wireless if we want to watch uninterrupted streaming TV. Enough was enough. I went looking for an 8-port somewhat managed switch for a good price. The Linksys came up on the radar and i pushed the "buy" button. It arrived, I plugged it in, it worked flawlessly. Port shortage problem solved for about $50. We've always had good luck with Linksys products. I'm glad I purchased this one. It couldn't have been simpler to connect. Take it out of the box, attach the power supply plug - connect one regular port from your router to a port on the switch using a network cable, turn on the power to the switch - ready to go. Just connect additional devices to one of the 7 extra ports now available. No issues at all.5Decided to run my own ethernet wiring through the walls ...Decided to run my own ethernet wiring through the walls and needed some extra ports to handle the wiring in two parts of the house. I purchased two of these. I have speed tests between tow computers on my LAN. Both tests were through ethernet CAT 6 cables. There are 30 connected devices on my small network (ethernet or WiFi connected phones, speakers, iPads, laptops, desktop computers, set-top boxes, TVs, weather sensors, and a robot vacuum). The first test was between two desktop computers running off the same NAT router (before adding this switch) showed 980 Mbps throughput for upload and download; the test after installing the switch returned the same values.5BEWARE! The 8 port model SE3008 design has changed dramatically as of July 2018BEWARE! The 8 port model SE3008 design has changed dramatically from what is described.There is now a SE3008V2 which is completely different.I ordered 2 of these units on 7/17/2018 specifically for the orientation of front panel lights and rear panel ethernet and power jacks.Unfortunately I was shipped model SE3008V2, which has all lights and ethernet jacksin the front, and only the power jack in the rear.I have to blame Linksys for not giving this a completely different model name.For more info, see this Linksys article.I will have to return these and find a suitable alternative.2Format changed Sep 2018. Now Ethernet connectors on the front along with the LEDsSomewhere between Jul 2018 and Sep 2018 the design of the SE3005 has changed, and now the Ethernet connectors come out the front. This is bad if you have this on your desk because now you have messy cables facing you, and usually there is tension on the cables that pull the switch to one side.I have one purchased in July 2018, and that has the connectors coming out of the back.Sending this back and try and find the "older" version where the connectors come out the back.1

Your kids won't ever have this miserable history of experiences and costly visits from your IT guy(s) at home.5It works. what more can you ask for?Over the years of our home network building, we never got around to purchasing a router with more than four ports. That became problematic when we evolved into two primary desktop computers, two printers and a few notebook computers, not to mention a television that prefers CAT6 cable to wireless if we want to watch uninterrupted streaming TV. Enough was enough. I went looking for an 8-port somewhat managed switch for a good price. The Linksys came up on the radar and i pushed the "buy" button. It arrived, I plugged it in, it worked flawlessly. Port shortage problem solved for about $50. We've always had good luck with Linksys products. I'm glad I purchased this one. It couldn't have been simpler to connect. Take it out of the box, attach the power supply plug - connect one regular port from your router to a port on the switch using a network cable, turn on the power to the switch - ready to go. Just connect additional devices to one of the 7 extra ports now available. No issues at all.5Decided to run my own ethernet wiring through the walls ...Decided to run my own ethernet wiring through the walls and needed some extra ports to handle the wiring in two parts of the house. I purchased two of these. I have speed tests between tow computers on my LAN. Both tests were through ethernet CAT 6 cables. There are 30 connected devices on my small network (ethernet or WiFi connected phones, speakers, iPads, laptops, desktop computers, set-top boxes, TVs, weather sensors, and a robot vacuum). The first test was between two desktop computers running off the same NAT router (before adding this switch) showed 980 Mbps throughput for upload and download; the test after installing the switch returned the same values.5BEWARE! The 8 port model SE3008 design has changed dramatically as of July 2018BEWARE! The 8 port model SE3008 design has changed dramatically from what is described.There is now a SE3008V2 which is completely different.I ordered 2 of these units on 7/17/2018 specifically for the orientation of front panel lights and rear panel ethernet and power jacks.Unfortunately I was shipped model SE3008V2, which has all lights and ethernet jacksin the front, and only the power jack in the rear.I have to blame Linksys for not giving this a completely different model name.For more info, see this Linksys article.I will have to return these and find a suitable alternative.2Format changed Sep 2018. Now Ethernet connectors on the front along with the LEDsSomewhere between Jul 2018 and Sep 2018 the design of the SE3005 has changed, and now the Ethernet connectors come out the front. This is bad if you have this on your desk because now you have messy cables facing you, and usually there is tension on the cables that pull the switch to one side.I have one purchased in July 2018, and that has the connectors coming out of the back.Sending this back and try and find the "older" version where the connectors come out the back.1
