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: 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.
Summary: this little switch is real value for money. I used it to connect blue ray player and tv to my home network. Does the same job that more expensive switches do. Very pleased with the item, delivery and packaging. Will use this seller again.
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: A product like this doesn't need to be sexy, it just needs to work. And the DGS-1005D just works. I have two of these and one 8-port cousin of the same family, and I love them all. The money I save on electricity is a very nice bonus!
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!
