The TP-Link 8-Port Gigabit desktop switch TL-SG1008D provides you an easy way to make the transition to Gigabit Ethernet. Increase the speed of your network server and backbone connections, or make Gigabit to the desktop a reality. Moreover, TL-SG1008D adopts lower power consumption design. With the innovative energy-efficient technology, the TL-SG1008D can save up to 80%* of the power consumption, making it an eco-friendly solution for your home or office network.

Featured with 8 10/100/1000Mbps ports, TL-SG1008D greatly expands your network capacity, enabling instant large files transferring. So,power users in the home, office, workgroup, or creative production environment can now move large, bandwidth-intensive files faster. Transfer graphics, CGI, CAD, or multimedia files across the network instantly.

Go Green With Your Ethernet
You now have the choice to go green when upgrading to a gigabit network! This new generation TL-SG1008D 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch features the latest innovative energy-efficient technologies that can greatly expand your network capacity with much less power. It automatically adjusts power consumption according to the link status and cable length to limit the carbon footprint of your network.

Power down Idle Ports
When a computer or network equipment is off, the corresponding port of a traditional switch will continue to consume considerable amounts of power. The TL-SG1008D can automatically detect the link status of each port and reduce the power consumption of ports that are idle, resulting in up to an 80% reduction in power use.

Power Budget According to Cable Length
Shorter cables use less power because of less power degradation over their length.

Easy to Use
The auto features of this gigabit switch make installation plug and play and hassle-free. No configuring is required. Auto MDI/MDIX eliminate the need for crossover cables. Auto-negotiation on each port senses the link speed of a network device (either 10, 100, or 1000 Mbps) and intelligently adjusts for compatibility and optimal performance.

  • Maximum power savings when compared to a TP-LINK conventional switch, the real saving rate may vary based on the usage condition.

5* Excellent value and it works

After struggling so much with wifi for my home / office. I took the plunge and asked a friend to install a wired network for my house. He put the switch in the garage and cabled the other rooms from there. Perfect, no problems whatsoever now, really happy and it works great. You really can't go wrong at this price too. Highly recommended, thank you BT!
5* This is better than I expected

Its a simple switch so easy to install, just plug in and use. Auto senses how to configure the port and goes. Nice surprise was how well made this is. Although the case is plastic it is good quality and it doesn't look or feel cheap. As black boxes go its quite simple and elegant.
