I have 4 of these, and they DO show the speed of the connection. Green = gigabit, orange = 100/10.
You do NOT have 4 of these. You might have 4 TL-SG108's, but you have a previous version (even though you might have bought it from Amazon, from the same product page/ASIN).

See attached excerpt from current TP-Link Installation Guide.

I picked this up not too long ago and I'm kinda annoyed that the Power Cable is on the opposite side that the network ports go.
This one should work for you:

At least it doesn't stick directly out of the side like on the SLM2008. what a pain in the ass.

Netgear GS308 is inferior, it used electrolytic capacitor in the PCB board. TP-Link is all solid state.
This review says you are wrong and backs it up with picts of the caps.

What's your source?

However after tearing the part he does prefer and recommend the TP-Link as he does not like the way the netgear jams the caps up against the heatsink....

Because most people can barely manage their life, let alone take on managing a switch in addition. Smilie

Just bought a Netgear GS308T [amazon.com] managed switch from AWD for $34. I need something that can do link aggregation for my NAS box. I saw that there is a TP-Link one for $23 but decided to give a miss due to a few reports of packet dumping.

:
Would this switch be sufficient for a wired/networked home as the first switch in the setup, so cable>modem>mesh router>switch> then hardwired access points throughout the home or is there a more preferred type to handle the bulk of the initial throuput?
For most home uses, this is fine if the primary traffic is devices inside the house connected to the internet. The cable modem will be the bottleneck.

But if you have significant internal traffic such as media streaming inside the house between devices and multiple streams of these, then one would have to look at the traffic patterns to see if you can reduce hops or isolate participating devices into separate networks. And I mean really significant use of bytes being transferred within the house not from the Internet.

Most of these consumer switches have bandwidth/throughput limitations that won't allow simultaneous max rate on all ports. The switches on the wifi routers are typically more limited than these ethernet switches. So, you want to avoid any of the busy internal traffic necessarily going through a wifi router to reach one another if you can avoid it.

Typically, you connect a switch wired or wireless that has an uplink port and connect that to the modem, and you connect the rest to it. In your configuration, I would not connect anything other than this switch to any ethernet ports on the wifi router but connect them if needed to the switch instead. This allows the wifi router to devote its maximum throughput to Internet usage and communications between wireless devices (where wireless bandwidth is the bottleneck) and not do wired switching within it.

This is in general, there are always exceptions.
