* Reduce power consumption & generates less heat * Extend product life * Reduce operating costs
Get the blazing speed of Gigabit Ethernet with the D-Link GigaExpress DGS-1008D, an 8-port 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Switch that delivers power, performance, and reliability in one cost-effective, space-saving design. Increase the speed of your network server and backbone connections, or make Gigabit to the desktop a reality.
Power users in the home, office, workgroup, or creative production environment can now move large, bandwidth-intensive files faster. Transfer graphics, CGI, CAD, or multimedia files across the network instantly.
Power-Packed The D-Link DGS-1008D 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Switch features a non-blocking switching architecture that filters and forwards packets at full wire-speed for maximum throughput. 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.
Designed using industry standards, it is compatible with virtually all 10, 100, and 1000Mbps Ethernet devices and other vendor equipment. The D-Link DGS-1008D protects your existing network investment while providing you with a straightforward migration path to faster Gigabit network speeds.
Easy to Use The auto features of this gigabit switch makes installation truly “plug and play” and hassle-free. No configuring is required. Auto MDI/MDI-X crossover on all ports eliminates the need for crossover cables or uplink ports. Auto-negotiation on each port senses the link speed of a network device (either 10, 100, or 1000 Mbps) and intelligently adjusts for compatibility and optimal performance.
It also features diagnostic LEDs which display status and activity, allowing you to quickly detect and correct problems on the network.

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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
