Overall Satisfaction with D-Link Ethernet Switches

D-Link, no doubt is the best brand and the best switches that we ever used. We have it across all our organizations. Network conjunction and other related problems have been solved by it and have configured VLANs over it. But the product is so awesome, that I recommend most of them use it.
  • Cheapest of all.
  • Durable in all aspects.
  • More functionalities in less price.
  • Reliability of network.
  • Updates frequently
  • End of life cycle and end of support cycle.
  • As D-Link frequently changes its products and customer have to switch very often.
  • Cheap as compared to other brands, so great ROI
  • More functionalities in less budget, so great ROI.
  • Products frequently change and end support, so poor ROI.
STP enabled by default. Loop detection by default is enabled in CISCO. As we have faced a problem in load management, CISCO bears a large amount of load but D-Link doesn't.
Overall, the product is great and we have configured it at our plant and head offices. It is a great product to use and can be configured with minimal efforts and minimal qualifications required. The network engineer doesn't;t need to be a specialized person but needs to be a well aware person so that he may configure it.
I have given it 9 out of 10 just because of its low cost and additional features that have been an integral part of any product, otherwise, the load management part was far more inferior as compared to the Cisco switches, as those switches have a spanning tree protocol built-in.

In our head office where there is a low dust environment, it best suits this use. But in a plant where there is a dusty environment, you may face in and outs and the Network team may be in a bit of a hurdle.
