A very reasonably priced network switch that delivers top data speeds with economical operation
11 January 2012
Excerpt: So, switches and hubs: what's that all about then? Well, quite simply, they both do the same thing: connect together devices on a computer network. So, what's a router then? Well, it connects different networks together, securely.
Summary: Small, describe, and most importantly requires very low power. So low in fact that it is running off the USB socket on the back of my Sky box. No need for an additional plug in the Tv cabinet!
Summary: As TVs and even BluRay players now connect to the Internet, I needed a switch behind the AV system. It also meant I could use wired connection for the HTPC which has to be better than streaming HD over wi-fi.
Summary: The product shipped is not as shown in photo. Although fully functional and worked 100% OK the product shipped is the previous model to the one shown in the photo. It is a completely different shape and style. Beware if you are purchasing this item to position where it ca be seen.
Three different generations, which one do I get sent?

Summary: This is a great little switch. Only problem is the same model number has had three different generations. The two-colour one (shown in the search page) the boxy white one (one show in description above) and the round new version (that I actually received).
Summary: Having just installed this device, I've been testing my network performance with the iperf tool. The results might be useful for anyone considering which networking strategy would work best in their home: - DGS-1005D (this device): 930-950Mb/s unidirectional, combined 1.3Gb/s bidirectional - BT...
Summary: The whole device is very compact. The top is slightly curved from side to side and contains the LEDs that indicate the status of each port. The rear of the device has the 5 Ethernet ports and also the socket for the supplied power plug.
Summary: Please note the model from Findmemory is NOT the GREEN version despite description. Findmemory quickly delivered and quickly responded to email offering full refund if wanted, but do not stock the green version.
