    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.

    Lester, South Africa. 5 December 2014

    Works perfectly, and great value for money

    Pierre, South Africa. 29 December 2014

    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 well!

    Richard, South Africa. 16 February 2015

    Works perfectly without any problems

    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.

    Aubrey, South Africa. 13 August 2015

    Does what its supposed to.

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

    Paul, South Africa. 15 February 2016

    Great little switch...although the one delivered to me looked different from the pictures. Connects seamlessly to my Gigabit modem/router and delivers excellent performance and internet speed to my Xbox, TV and all other cable connected devices.

    Great value for money!

    Ek is baie tevrede met jul produk

    Warren, South Africa. 3 February 2016

    Easy plug and play. Have had no issues so far. Nice small form factor.
    The picture on the site needs to be updated though. The product I received was more round than the image on the site. Possibly smaller as well. Which is a good thing.

    Only thing I wish for would be the ability to switch off the LED lights, but that you won't find on most switches anyway.

    Rajan, South Africa. 3 March 2016

    Simple installation. Works great. Big improvement on my internet speed.

    Philip, South Africa. 23 March 2016

    Even smaller than it seems in the pictures.
    Pic 1 is incorrect - its the new shape.
    No manual and the one I found on the d-link site is for the old version.
