Customer Reviews

Well constructed, lots of features, and much less expensive... whats not to like? I'm astonished how many features are available on this switch for the price (not that I needed any of them :-) I usually use the N*G* brand, but this seemed fine.It installed quickly, I did not have to change any of the default settings, because initially we are just using this as a dumb switch, the smart-switch features are to future-protect us once we get our wi-fi figured out (this is for a medium-sized new england church.)Physical construction is reasonable robust (metal box). What more can I say? 5Excellent unmanaged switch. No rack ears though.After upgrading our broadband router to a model featuring 4 gigabit LAN ports, we decided to upgrade the rest of the network to get the performance benefits of gigabit wired ethernet.I have an extensive wired network throughout the house, but with the 4 ports on the switch, and 16 ports here, minus 2 for connecting them, that leaves me with 18 available gigabit ports. The switch has 32 GBPS bandwidth across its bus, so no problems squeezing data through the switch itself, the link, and status lights give you a myriad of diagnostic information, and the legend on the front panel clearly explains the meaning of that diagnostic information from the lights... Versatile mounting options include desktop, rack, and with a little creativity to a mount board.Unlike my old Netgear 10/100 ethernet switch, with a terribly noisy fan, this thing is nearly silent in operation (On or off I can't hear it, and my sound meter app can't detect anything...).The Green Net technology is a huge bonus to even if you only hug trees to figure out how many board feet are in them. You see nobody likes spending too much money on energy, and the ability for this to automatically power the ports off seems like it would help. Time will tell how reliable that is though.The only real problem I have with this switch, and several other folks have mentioned it as well, is the lack of the rack mounting tabs / ears / brackets whatever you want to call them. They really ought to be included. But for a top quality switch at the price of this unit. The lack of the brackets can be easily overlooked...One thing that DOES need to be mentioned. This is an unmanaged switch. I have seen reviews here and there complaining about the lack of configuration options in unmanaged switches. That is kind of the def9inition of unmanaged after all isn't it? If you need to hard set your speed negotiation / packet sizes etc... do so with your NIC driver / module, or bump up to a layer2 manged switch (at about 3x the cost of an un managed model...)5Running without a hiccup for years!I am in the process of upgrading to a switch with Port Mirroring for network monitoring, I decided to double-check the capabilities of this model first, just to be sure it would no longer meet my needs. It will not. This is just a basic switch, with no management capability. However, basic does not mean cheap, short-lived, or not useful! I've had this in place for several years, running 24x7. I have rebooted it 2 or 3 times, and each time the switch was not the culprit. This guy dutifully passes traffic day and night, quickly, silently, and without fault. I run a business out of my home. I have 4 Terabytes of data backed up locally and to the cloud. We also have multiple smart TV's in our home, two Media Center PC's, ROKU, and a couple of Internet Radio players. I have brought our Internet connection to its knees on multiple occasions. We have much much more internal network traffic than Internet traffic. I do computer repair and am imaging computers almost constantly. That gives you some idea about how much traffic is pumped through this. It has never missed a beat and is still going strong. TRENDnet makes a quality product! I do recommend you upgrade your ethernet cables to CAT6. I could be just me, with too much data, but I have had issues with CAT5E cables. That's not a fault of the switch. CAT6 cleared everything up immediately. Now that I think about it, I seem to recall finding a damaged cable in the upgrade. It may have been one cable that caused the trouble. But this was all about 5 or 6 years ago. Naturally, my upgraded switch will also be TRENDnet!5Had some problem connectionI am using this switch three different network places since 2016. They are mostly okay however all switches have a same problem. Sometimes one or two of ports had failed connection. when it happens I have to change to the other remains port then it connected again. I have no idea how, and why it happened fail connection and later back to normal with only one or two port out of 16. I checked Ethernet cables, other devices, etc and all have no problems. After I replaced 2 of switch with other brand it doesn't happen again. I will replace one last one soon, too.3Great switch - good speed and easy to useI can be cheap at times and I was using several small switches daisy chained together. They were maybe 7 - 8 years old and a bit slow, and I had rapidly outgrown them. After about a week of research I settled on the TRENDnet 16 port switch. One of the deciding factors was the speed (pretty obvious, I guess), while another was the green energy saver feature. But an additional factor was the ability to mount this in a rack. I had to buy mounting brackets but that was not a big deal to me. I bought a medium sized server rack and several shelves and I have mounted this switch along the bottom and then put my networks storage drives in the rack as well. So far so good - my network speed has improved and there doesn't seem to be as much buffering and "traffic jams" when there are 6 or 7 users on the network (hard wired, not wireless). Good switch for a very reasonable price.5Power $ savings + Powerful Performance.Update review: network patch bay port causing problems switch OK.Failed purchased 06-27-2018 RA# on 01-07-2019 Treddnet web site indicated this model only has 3 year warranty. sent in copy of Limited Life and requested correction of there site and reflect correct warranty with my account. Replacement was on its way within 3 days. This unit dropped all network LAN and WAN traffic withing two minutes after a power reboot.When original 24 port switch was pulled from service not all used ports were put back into service do to a temp switch 8 port and a 4 port were used to keep only key items connected. When all patch cables were connected to the replacement switch dropping occurred. Isolation of the patch cables that were put back into service pin point one patch causing the problem. Cable was good but the patch bay had been wired wrong. Using B standard. # 8 and #7 the brown and white were reversed.original review:Had to retire my 10 year old NetGear 24port switch that was not auto updating port configs without rebooting it. This was causing haveckIts replacement not only saves on power (Green) but is capable of negotiation with current gigabyte devices. Well built mettle case quiet fan less non-managed switch is great for amateur home or small office uses on a budget. The price range for 24port upper end was + $2000. Managed, Features I would not have utilized. TRENDnet has pulled off an amazing 24 switch.TRENDnet 24-Port Unmanaged Gigabit 10/100/1000 Mbps GREENnet Desktop Metal Housing Switch, 48 Gbps Switching Fabric, Lifetime Protection, TEG-S24DG5worked for a while ... now, not so much Switch was in use for the past two years without much issue. I had intermittent connectivity issues with my son's desktop, but thought it was something with the onboard NIC. The issue must have been with the switch since the once intermittent connections are now permanent ... nothing seems to be passing thru the switch. Hopefully the 3 year warranty will come thru. 1This is the one Pros: The price was great for what I paid for it. This switch fit perfectly in the network box that I built for all my alarm system, phone wiring, cable TV, and the network patch cables. I ran Cat 7 wiring in 4 runs to every room (except the bathrooms.) With 4 bedrooms, a living room, and an office, That's all the ports. I plugged it into my Netgear Gigabit router, and it performs very well. Yes, you can do just about everything you want wirelessly these days, and I do have several wireless devices, but there's nothing like gigabit ethernet for transmitting streaming video, and of course, wired networking is a LOT more secure than wireless.Tip--if your router supports it, divide your network into wired and wireless segments and only do online banking and purchasing and so forth on the wired segment.Cons: It would be nice if I could have gotten a 48-port switch for the same price I paid for this 24-port unit. 5Very happy with this switch This is a sturdy, well-built Ethernet gigabit 24-port switch. It is about as simple as it gets, since it is unmanaged and has no settings or firmware to upgrade. Just plug it in and hook up your device cables (and router) to it. Since all the ports are auto-sensing, there is no need to worry about which ports you are connecting your router to. I like that this device has a physical off/on switch on its back and the power supply is built in. No power transformer or wall wart needed.The switch runs very cool to the touch, even when most ports are active. I don't hear any cooling fan or other sounds from the device. The unit feels sturdy and heavy with a metal case. The LED indicator lights and ports are both on the front, which is convenient. You can easily tell the status and speed of each port by reading the LEDs.The unit can be rack-mounted if needed. I have this one sitting on a shelf. It does come with press-on rubber feet if you don't want to rack-mount the device.I used this device to replace two 8-port gigabit switches from D-Link. No complaints so far. Works perfectly and the price was great! The energy-saving features are an added bonus. 5Terrible product, terrible support!RUN THE OTHER WAY!I purchased this unit for a small office environment based on Amazon reviews. Less than two months in service, it had three ports die, and two others start behaving weirdly. Thinking that a cross-shipped replacement would be a trivial matter, I submitted an RMA request.HOW WRONG I WAS! It's been almost a month, and I STILL do not have a return authorization. The rep assigned to my case, "Albert M.", doesn't answer questions promptly -- if at all -- and appears to be unable to post more than one response per day to the ticket, even if I reply to a posting from him within FIVE MINUTES of his post. Truly the worst RMA service I ever experienced on a networking product.I got sick of waiting for Albert to help me get my network running, and purchased a TP-Link switch to replace this dog. So far, so good on the replacement, but TRENDnet is still on the hook for getting me warranty service for this pile of garbage.1Sturdy, Improved LAN connection.Easy set up, up and running in 5 minutes. Connect wireless router port to router. Or connect modem wire to router, add power to router, things work instantly.(This replaced a linkssys router that virtually fell apart due to cheap plastic enclosure and flimsy connectors. We moved and when I unpacked, it came out in pieces. Trashed.) personal experience suggests higher end, sturdy routers make a difference in LAN efficiency. Some parts are plastic that can't be avoided, but if an enclosure is metal accidental damage is more protective.Best feature is the enclosure is metal not plastic. It has a solid feel, thinner than old one and much more efficient. We have a large house and 12 LAN connections, including TV, printers And scanner. It's a better unit than plastic junk sold as routers. Not all connections are in use at once, though it's nice to connect when I change rooms and not fuss with wireless signal strength or configuration scripts.Finally I do have a wireless router and for mobile devices, however desk top and laptops are wired connections with VPN and IP hide programs, open VPN. Wireless is okay for IPhone, IPad, Android, etc. but heavy lifting on my network is wired. Banking, encrypted email, etc.I didn't test before and after connections wireless or network connections, now it appears faster and more efficient.Recommend this for large networks unless software management requires more attention than unmanaged.5Trendnet tech support is wothless I bought a TEG-S24D from the Trendnet e-store in Oct 2017. Recently ports 17-24 started failing intermitenly. Then they failed completely. No LED on the switch, no connection from a device. Losing the switch was a big pain. I bought the TEG-S24DG from Amazon with the idea that the original switch would be replaced under warranty (3 years) and become my backup. The new switch is warranty is "lifetime". After getting in touch with tech support, I moved to level 2 support. However, the call back came outside of the time range I specified and I didn't get the call. I called back with a case number. After discussion with tech support, I was told, find and windows computer and call back. (e.g. our script can't deal with linux). I am not a hardware person, but I can say for sure, ports 17-24 don't work and power cycling and plugging something in the dead ports is not going to change that. I will be replacing my TEG-S24DG ASAP. Trendnet tech support is a very unfunny joke. It has zero value. 1Box failed in a subtle and difficult to manage way.I bought this a few years ago when I started putting a wired network together. Things dragged on so it remained shrinkwrapped in its box for a long time. Fast forward to about 6 months ago when I finally got round to opening it and completing the network. Initially the switch worked smoothly and troublefree. No set up, nice design, I was happy.A few months later, started getting random dropouts on certain ports. The randomness meant I was questioning various other parts of the network, but after a while I zeroed in on this. It looks like it's functioning, still has LEDs showing ports in use, and sometimes it does, but it's just woefully unreliable, and its sneaky method of failure makes it harder to diagnose.I am having to replace this with another box. Unfortunately due to the delay in getting around to using it I don't know if I got a faulty unit, whether it degraded over time in its box, or whether all TRENDnet products have this poor quality, so please weigh that when considering my review.2Good Switch so far-USPS delivered it dripping wet! USPS delivered it dripping wet! USPS actually placed the wet box in a plastic bag marked "received damaged'!!!! Whatever -anther poor shipping choice by someone!?!!So far this unit is working as expected. Its a un manned switch right?!? The Only thing I wish was different was the location of the ports. The Picture clearly shows them up front -its just for my application I was liked to see them behind. So far the unit is running correctly - speeds have not been measured. Durability is a time tested issue. 3Trash...worked for a month, then stopped working...I ordered one a little under a month ago, it worked fine, I was getting excellent speeds, then randomly I got intermittent connection issues. I wasn't willing to try to figure out if it was one port in question or the whole entire thing, I just swapped out my old 10/100 switch using the same exact cables, and everything worked as expected.I ordered a replacement, that one arrived, and I got the exact same behavior as the broken one. This one didn't even work for a month first.I'll never order from this manufacturer again...it's a switch, it should just work...1This is a great 16 port switchThis is a great 16 port switch. I want to clear up a couple of the questions I have seen people ask about this switch and hope it will answer yours 1 - If you look up TEG-S16DG on TRENDnet's website you will see 'The TEG-S16Dg (Version v1.0R) has been discontinued.' However I can confirm that this switch is the version 2 (at least as of June 4, 2018) is still in production and is what you will receive. See attached photo 2 - The TEG-S16DG is intended to be set on a desktop, so there are NO mounting holes on the bottom. However, there are holes on either side of the unit to attach the "TRENDNet Rack Mount Kit, Compatible with TEG-S16Dg/TEG-S24Dg, Mount an 11" wide to a 19" Equipment rack, ETH-11MK" wide to a 19" Equipment rack, ETH-11MK". So not exactly the best 'wall mount' option, I'm sure with a little ingenuity one could figure out a way to mount this to a wall (to make it look nice)Pictures attached are from the TEG-S16DG which I purchased on May 26, 2018, which shows the mounting holes/location and the backing plate that shows the full version number of the unit. I hope you find this information useful.5No hiccups in 5 years! Great switch I've had this switch running in my home since August 2011 and I have not had a single hiccup. In fact, I used up all 24 ports (yes I am a tech geek) and just ordered a second switch today. I've been very pleased with the reliability and performance of this switch and I love the fact that I'm saving a few cents here and there on electricity for the ports that aren't being used (device powered off). I paired this with the rack-mount kit http://amzn.to/20JQ8XI so I could easily place it in my rack (yep, still a geek).The plugs are easy to manage, network cables don't get stuck or anything when swapping them out. Great design of putting the clips facing up on the top and facing down on the bottom row. The switch is a great value and performs great. Highly recommended. 5

Things dragged on so it remained shrinkwrapped in its box for a long time. Fast forward to about 6 months ago when I finally got round to opening it and completing the network. Initially the switch worked smoothly and troublefree. No set up, nice design, I was happy.A few months later, started getting random dropouts on certain ports. The randomness meant I was questioning various other parts of the network, but after a while I zeroed in on this. It looks like it's functioning, still has LEDs showing ports in use, and sometimes it does, but it's just woefully unreliable, and its sneaky method of failure makes it harder to diagnose.I am having to replace this with another box. Unfortunately due to the delay in getting around to using it I don't know if I got a faulty unit, whether it degraded over time in its box, or whether all TRENDnet products have this poor quality, so please weigh that when considering my review.2Good Switch so far-USPS delivered it dripping wet! USPS delivered it dripping wet! USPS actually placed the wet box in a plastic bag marked "received damaged'!!!! Whatever -anther poor shipping choice by someone!?!!So far this unit is working as expected. Its a un manned switch right?!? The Only thing I wish was different was the location of the ports. The Picture clearly shows them up front -its just for my application I was liked to see them behind. So far the unit is running correctly - speeds have not been measured. Durability is a time tested issue. 3Trash...worked for a month, then stopped working...I ordered one a little under a month ago, it worked fine, I was getting excellent speeds, then randomly I got intermittent connection issues. I wasn't willing to try to figure out if it was one port in question or the whole entire thing, I just swapped out my old 10/100 switch using the same exact cables, and everything worked as expected.I ordered a replacement, that one arrived, and I got the exact same behavior as the broken one. This one didn't even work for a month first.I'll never order from this manufacturer again...it's a switch, it should just work...1This is a great 16 port switchThis is a great 16 port switch. I want to clear up a couple of the questions I have seen people ask about this switch and hope it will answer yours 1 - If you look up TEG-S16DG on TRENDnet's website you will see 'The TEG-S16Dg (Version v1.0R) has been discontinued.' However I can confirm that this switch is the version 2 (at least as of June 4, 2018) is still in production and is what you will receive. See attached photo 2 - The TEG-S16DG is intended to be set on a desktop, so there are NO mounting holes on the bottom. However, there are holes on either side of the unit to attach the "TRENDNet Rack Mount Kit, Compatible with TEG-S16Dg/TEG-S24Dg, Mount an 11" wide to a 19" Equipment rack, ETH-11MK" wide to a 19" Equipment rack, ETH-11MK". So not exactly the best 'wall mount' option, I'm sure with a little ingenuity one could figure out a way to mount this to a wall (to make it look nice)Pictures attached are from the TEG-S16DG which I purchased on May 26, 2018, which shows the mounting holes/location and the backing plate that shows the full version number of the unit. I hope you find this information useful.5No hiccups in 5 years! Great switch I've had this switch running in my home since August 2011 and I have not had a single hiccup. In fact, I used up all 24 ports (yes I am a tech geek) and just ordered a second switch today. I've been very pleased with the reliability and performance of this switch and I love the fact that I'm saving a few cents here and there on electricity for the ports that aren't being used (device powered off). I paired this with the rack-mount kit http://amzn.to/20JQ8XI so I could easily place it in my rack (yep, still a geek).The plugs are easy to manage, network cables don't get stuck or anything when swapping them out. Great design of putting the clips facing up on the top and facing down on the bottom row. The switch is a great value and performs great. Highly recommended. 5
