Yes, s80g is metal. I have both metal one and plastic one.

thehiggins 09-19-2012 10:25 AM

Any advantage to the metal other than case durability? Like, improved heat dissipation or something?

tekjunkie 09-19-2012 10:28 AM

Bought one of these in July. Worked well until now. Just died. Ordered the Linksys. My Linksys switches/routers last for years.

Zephon13 09-19-2012 10:29 AM

I'd just wait for the metal casing to go back on sale. That's a better deal.

I did have one of the power supplies for on of these die after about 6 months the switch itself was fine though. I spent another 1.06 for a power supply on ebay for it and its back to working again.

Thanks for the informative post! Repped!

menace33 09-19-2012 12:21 PM

Got one of these. Plenty of brownouts in my area and this thing is still kicking strong without any fluctuations, bad ports, or any signs of wear.

PawPawDog 09-19-2012 12:45 PM

How can this be frontpage deal? I brought the metal case version S80G two weeks ago from Amazon for $21.25.

It is a decent deal for an 8 port gig switch. Don't get me wrong though, even if were $5 more, I'd still choose the S80G over this one.

Sucios 09-19-2012 01:35 PM

I don't care if it's metal or plastic as long as it works. These switches get connected in the closets and are never seen again

Steeldeals 09-19-2012 01:37 PM

Never mind...

hollywdbri 09-19-2012 01:56 PM

I wish that mine was a quick fix like a power supply but it was powered (green light was on) but no data was passing through.

that is te100 not teg... i dont think its gigabit

bdb 09-19-2012 02:10 PM

The S80G is 100mbps, not gig. I got that one anyway; it's a lot more forgiving of bad cabling.

Except that's the TE100-S80G, not the TEG-S80G.

maybe because this is the best price right now for a plastic case. Yes some of us want plastic.

In 4 1.

heftylefty58 09-19-2012 03:52 PM

Dumb question:

For those who prefer plastic, why do you prefer plastic?

Another dumb question:

For those who prefer metal, why do you prefer metal?

I'm literally dumb--I'm not insinuating one is better than the other. I'm simply asking questions to get your opinions.

plastic is cheaper, metal is stronger and dissipates heat better, so it will most likely have a longer life-time (look at the netgear/dlink business class switches that have a lifetime warranty, all of those are metal)

we really need to put metal or plastic in the title on these threads..

seavers01 09-19-2012 04:53 PM

I bought two of these on a previous sale just like this one. Yes they are plastic, but I really don't care. IBoth work well, just plug it in and they work. I love that they call these switches, they are really just hubs. No management ability. They do the just when you need multiport access to your network and you run out of ports on your router. Good deal would buy again

They aren't a hub in that they can logically route traffic, managed or not. So if you have something going to IP 192.168.1.2 - that is the only PC that gets the data. With a hub, all devices on it will get all the data, not just data assigned to it. They will just ignore it.

A switch also has the repeater capability that a hub does, IE strengthen the signal at that location.

Generally I find that the metal ones don't wear down as easily, I find that they also don't overheat especially in confined places so in the long run are more sturdy.

Djh8 09-19-2012 06:49 PM

I bought one of these last time, great switch IMHO.

I have a netgear metal cased switch that has been running 10+ years at this point...was just waiting for it to die, but it won't :lol:

gabeevans 09-19-2012 07:54 PM

I have both a metal and plastic switch - neither wants to die, haven't really noticed a difference on either one.

AzSyndicate 09-20-2012 06:01 AM

Had to chime in on a couple things I have read

Quote:

they are really just hubs.
Big difference between a HUB and a Switch. These are not just likes hubs. Hubs are very inefficient broadcast based devices. Switches are much better as they will let machines talk directly with where they need to go. These particular devices are un-managed, which means you just plug it in and let it do its job. For 90% of audience here on SD they are what is needed for Home or Small Office environment. The technical definition of a switch has nothing to do with it being managed or not. Has everything to do with how it lets devices talk on the network.

Also, I prefer plastic for my home network. In most cases plastic has the flat mount screw holes on the back that allow me to attach the device to my fireboard. If you need an example of what I am talking about PM me and I will send you a picture.
