An 8,000 MAC address table provides scalability for even the largest networks. Address learning and aging, 802.3x Flow Control for full duplex mode, and back pressure flow control for half-duplex mode alleviates traffic congestion and ensures reliable data transmission.

Great looking small switch. Note that the product is representative of the second picture and not the primary one shown. Uses a USB connector to power the switch. One downside is a very basic pamphlet and no manual - thus there is no indication of what the meaning of the different light colour combinations are. Easy to get online though, but would have been good to mention it as people could think there is something wrong when the lights aren't a steady green.

Works perfectly, and great value for money

Does what its supposed to.

The USB input requires 1 AMP so don't try plug it into a PC usb port (only 500mA).

Works well!

Nice budget desktop switch. I like the idea that it can be powered by your USB port, negating the need for an external power supply.

Richard, South Africa. 16 February 2015

Works perfectly without any problems

Simple, smart and real easy to setup. just plug in and connect ethernet cables. The power socket is a mini usb. Never can go wrong with any Dlink product purchase.
