    8 Port 10/100/1000 Mbps Desktop Gigabit Ethernet Switch with Support for Jumbo Frames

    The Monoprice 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Switch is a professional networking switch that is capable of working within the fastest network systems. The switch conforms to the IEEE802.3, IEEE802.3u, and IEEE820.3ab standards, allowing it to work with 10, 100, and 1000 Mbps networking products. The 8-port design is perfect for use as a terminal switch for a small workgroup or as an intermediate switch to support a small workgroup with a throughput connection to additional switches or hubs.

    This small footprint device includes eight RJ-45 LAN jacks and is powered by an included AC adapter. Installation is as simple as plugging the unit into the power adapter and inserting cables into the ports on the back. When using 10BASE-T connections, Cat3 UTP cable is sufficient and when using 100BASE-TX connections Cat5 UTP or STP cable is acceptable. However, when using 1000BASE-T connections, Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6, or Cat7 UTP or STP cable is preferred, with Cat7 STP providing the highest level of reliability and signal integrity.

    The switch automatically detects the use of straight (MDI) or crossover (MDIX) cables and switches the connection to whichever is needed for the connected device. Therefore any of the eight ports can be connected to the upstream hub or router and the others connected to downstream PCs, hubs, or other switches.

    This switch incorporates several "green" functions, which help save power and save you money! The switch monitors the connectivity of each port and does not send power or signals down the ones that are unconnected (or which have powered off devices attached). It also monitors the length of each cable and reduces the power to shorter cables, while keeping the higher power applied to the longer cable runs. Finally, the switch will go into sleep/standby mode when it detects no connected or powered-on devices. All these measures add up to reduced energy consumption and costs, which means more "green" in your pocket!

    With all speeds, connections, and functions automatically configured and supported, there is no manual configuration or setup required. Simply plug it in and start using it right away!

    Features:

    • Complies with IEEE802.3, IEEE802.3u and IEEE802.3ab Ethernet standards
    • Supports Auto MDI/MDIX on each port
    • Supports Jumbo Frames
    • Provides eight 10/100/1000 Mbps Auto-Negotiation RJ45 ports
    • Supports IEEE802.3x flow control for full-duplex and Backpressure flow control for half-duplex
    • Green Ethernet technology, saves power and cost

    Great value, and was surprised by jumbo frame support
    I bought 3 of the 10927 gigabit switches to replace ethernet switches in my home network. Performance wise, I have seen a significant improvement. Granted, my testing wasn't very sophisticated, but with my old ethernet switches, it took about 3 minutes to transfer 2Gb of files between my macbook pro and my macmini. When connected with the gigabit switches, the same set of files transferred in less than 30 seconds. That's roughly 66 Mb/s, which is plenty fast for my needs.



    And as a bonus, I was able to get jumbo frames configured. Prior to delivery, I chatted with a monoprice tech support rep who told me that this switch would not support jumbo frames. I was curious to know if that was really the case. So, after configuring jumbo frames on my macbook pro and Mac mini, and connecting them through the switch, I was able to transfer data using jumbo frames. As you can see from the ping test data below, prior to configuration, the first ping of a 4550 frame was not successful. After configuring, the second ping of a 4550 frame was successful. My actual network setting is 4500. I found higher settings actually took more time to transfer, not sure why that's the case, but 4500 seemed to be the sweet spot for my set-up. In my limited testing, I found the jumbo frames to be a marginal improvement over default settings for gigabit. Nonetheless, if jumbo frames is a requirement of yours, this switch can handle it. It would be nice if monoprice would confirm this, and add it to the list of features for this switch.



    Overall, I am very pleased with this product's performance, and at this price, it is quite a value.

    If you got this far, thanks for reading my review.

    PROS: Price

    Jumbo frame support (although not documented by monoprice)

    CONS: Not a big deal to me, but the LEDs don't change color based on connection speed.

    No Indication difference when a 1 Gigabyte or a 100 Mbps device is connected.
    No problems so far. I only gave this a 6 to get attention what it should have different indications between 1 Gigabyte and 100 Mbps devices connected to a port. I NOW see other reviewers also dislike this but many will not notice this because they gave it a high rating.



    I am disappointed this 8 port switch does not indicate when a 1 Gigabyte device is connected to a port. The I Gigabyte and 100 Mbps indicator are the same color. The 8 port switch I got from MonoPrice a while ago indicated a 1 Gigabyte device by a different color on the LED.

    PROS: Price

    CONS: No Indication difference when a 1 Gigabyte or a 100 Mbps device is connected.

    Switch underperforms
    I purchased this switch to replace a 5-port Netgear Gigabit switch I had been using so I would have some additional ports to use. It's difficult to diagnose connectivity issues when the indicator lights don't show the speed (100Mbps/1Gbps) a device is connected at. Also, in benchmark tests, it performed significantly worse than the existing Netgear Gigabit switch, and the Netgear uses different color indicators for the port activity lights to show connection speed. This makes it easy to guarantee pieces of hardware are connecting at the proper rate. Transferring 1 TB of data to a network drive through this switch averaged 14.7 MB per second transfer rate. I compared it to the Netgear switch, using the same cabling, same file, same network drive, everything, and the transfer averaged 78.9 MB per second. While 14.7 MB per second is just over what you'd expect from a 100 Mbps connection, I checked my computer's network adapter, and it showed it was connected at 1.0 Gbps for both tests. This level of underperforming is not acceptable in my network infrastructure. In any instance, the fastest speed I ever recorded it transferring was just under 15 MB per second.



    If you just need ports to connect stuff and aren't concerned with getting full gigabit speed, you'll probably be fine. If you need that bandwidth... I'd look elsewhere.

    PROS: Easy to configure, just plug and play

    CONS: LED indicators do not show at what speed a device is connected. Doesn't transfer at full gigabit speeds.

    Response from Monoprice
    Hello Zak,

    Thank you for your review on PID 10927. My apologies for the speed issues experienced with this ethernet switch. It unfortunately appears as though you have received a defective switch as it should not transfer that slow. I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a replacement to see if a new unit would work out any better. We cover this switch with a one year warranty and it would be of no additional cost to you to obtain the replacement. Or, if truly unsatisfied with the switch, I can set it up for a return instead. Please let me know if you would like to proceed with either option and I will get that going right away. I'm sorry again for the trouble and I hope this helps!

    Regards,
    Gabby V.

    stopped working within 8 months
    i tried this generic switch hoping to save some money.. hoping that this will work well.. but i guess not.. not sure if it even comes with any warranty.. so probably end up spending more on a brand name switch now

    PROS: Plug & Play. Great while it lasted

    CONS: You get what you pay for... just didn't last...

    Great switch at a affortable price
    I have an older model, looks exactly like the fast Ethernet one. The only con I have is that it's glossy all around, but other than that it's great!

    Nice little box that does the job
    I would have been fired when I worked in shipping for shipping it in a tight fitting box which would have provided no protection from other heavy items.



    However, once I managed to get it out of the shipping box and set up, there was more difficulty in getting the router to play nice and figure out the new network configuration, but once it was set up, the switch worked fine and as far as I know I've not had any problems. Well, other than getting files to move from my W7Pro workstation to my Mac mini HTPC, which I suspect is more related to W7Pro and OS X bickering over something, and not related to the switch.



    Quite happy with the end of the Linksys nightmare that I've been dealing with for the last few months!

    PROS: So far, so good. After getting the network reconfigured, everything is working out quite smooth.

    CONS: I would like a more industrial design (better stackability), and a bit of weight in the front end to have it sit level with the cables connected. However, neither of these items have any bearing on the performance of the switch.

    Great value, particularly if you don't have to look at it.
    Does everything it claims. Great throughput, no noticeable problems thus far.

    PROS: Thin. Exceptionally priced.

    CONS: Device seems wider than necessary. The mounting holes on the bottom are too far apart in my opinion. No lights in port. Big logo.

    Works as advertised.
    It's an Ethernet switch. It's cheap, it works, and it's fast. Not really anything more to be said.

    PROS: Price. Small size. (Not rack-mountable, but if you're looking for rack-mountable hardware you want something a little higher-budget than this.)

    CONS: No Ethernet cable included in the box (most switches throw in one).

    Couldn't be easier. Wish it still had 2 color activity lights
    I had purchased the previous version of this box for my home, and it has worked flawlessly. So when my brother's switch went out, I knew what to get. It's been install about a week, but it works just as perfectly as mine. The only thing I miss is that this version only has single-color status lights. The previous version showed two colors - one for 100MB, the other for gigabit.

    PROS: Simple set up and operation. Small profile

    CONS: Wal wart. Activity lights only one color

    Small, inexpensive and it just works
    Simple, cheap, works...nuff said.

    PROS: This is the second of these that I have purchased from Monoprice. No frills, nothing fancy, just plug it in, plug in the network cables and it works. No fuss and does not require any monitoring.

    CONS: Would prefer to have the port lights on the very front of the unit rather than on top. But its only an issue because of where I have it located.

    Sure wish the power plug was smaller, it does intrude so that depending on how your electrical plug is situated it might cover one outlet and make it unavailable.
