Cheap easy and it just works
I needed a basic network switch in my Theatre to connect some A/V equipment to my home network and settled on the D-Link DGS-1008A. That was back in 2017, and this cheap and easy little switch has worked without fail since.
Sometimes with networking, you need a big and powerful managed 128 port switch, but sometimes, all you need is something basic. That's not to say this switch is dumb, it has 8 gigabit ports, and has smarts built in to reduce power usage, and therefore runs cool even without a fan. It is tiny too - 130 x 79 x 22 mm.
If I ha...d to find a problem, I would say that if the power supply cable came in from the back of the unit rather than the side, then that would improve the aesthetic (obviously it would make the unit slightly wider). Also, given the tiny power requirement, instead of an external power supply 'brick' which is hard wired to the barrel plug, a 240v to USB transformer, then a USB cable to barrel plug would allow users to get a power board with included USB outputs rather than another damn power supply 'brick'. It only requires 5Volt / 1 Amp anyway. Aside from these very minor complaints, this switch is perfect.
