The D-Link DES-1008E is an 8-port, 10/100 Ethernet switch released as a precursor to the Gigabit DIR-665 switch. Designed for a small to medium-sized office, the DES-1008E hosts 8 10/100 ports, four of which feature the Power-over-Internet protocol for supplying power to compatible PoE devices (IP cams, IP phones, etc.). Additionally, each port is outfitted with Auto MDI/MDI-X configuration, thereby eliminating the need for crossover cables when connecting to say another switch or hub. Additional features include zero fans, ultra-quiet operation, diagnoastic LEDs, and optimized network performance with automatic minimization of bad network packets. Unfortunately, the D-Link DES-1008E lacks its Gigabit peer’s energy efficiency, which means increased heat output and a shorter product life.
