Need suggestions for a new Gigabit Switch

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm currently having some issues with my current D-Link Gigabit switch where it is finicky about how the cables are plugged in and sometimes it would recognize certain ports and other times it won't. I've had this switch since about 2012 and I am looking to buy a new Gigabit ethernet switch.

It also needs to be capable of supporting Jumbo Packets.

I've narrowed it down to the following:

TRENDnet TEG-S50G GREENnet 10/100/1000 5 Port Gigabit Switch RoHS
TP-Link TL-SG1005D 5 Port Unmanaged Gigabit 10/100/1000 Desktop Switch
D-LINK DGS-1005G 5-PORT Unmanaged Gigabit Switch
ASUS GX-D1051 5 Port 10/100/1000 Gigabit Power Saving Ethernet Switch

However I am having a hard time deciding between these selections. The reason I didn't put other slimline or other switches is due to the lack of activity or status leds on the front and only where the cables plug in.

You'd be hard pressed to find any real differences between those switches.

Of the switches you listed, two stand out to me --the TP-Link TL-SG1005D and the ASUS GX-D1051.

The TRENDnet and TP-Link both have stellar reviews; however, the larger buffer/higher "theorized" switching throughput of the TP-Link would sway my decision between them. The TP-Link switch is also cheaper and has a longer warranty.

The ASUS switch has a pre-optimized port (VIP port) that can provide some kind of plug-n-pray QoS if needed. I tend to not put much faith in features like this, but perhaps you'd have a need for it. There aren't many reviews for it, but they're not bad.

All things considered, I would go with the TP-Link switch. thumb.gif

Thanks I have placed the order for the TP-Link switch. It was on special price as well and the sale for it ends tomorrow so I managed to order it just in time. Thanks again for helping me to decide which of these switches to purchase.

No problem. Glad I was able to help. thumb.gif

I have the TP-Link one. It's great. I did have it replaced under warranty due to the no longer negotiating gigabit after an electrical storm. It was connected to a UPS, so the storm may have been unreleated.

Either way, it works great. Between my PCs and my file server I can easily get 85-100MB/S with it.

I didn't update the topic till now but it seems the TP-Link is working great. It's also not as big as the pictures depict and it had no problem recognizing my network cables and infastructure. I'm negotiating at Gigabit speeds over the LAN network.

It also has no problem recognizing the network cables when unplugging and replugging (which the D-Link eventually had).
