Think Green
The GO-SW-8GE 8-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Metal Desktop Switch is part of D-Link’s new series of Rear ViewSOHO devices that make use of D-Link’s Green Technology, providing energy savings, reduced heat, and a longer product life without sacrificing performance or functionality. An energy-efficient power adapter (EnergyStar Level V qualified), minimized use of harmful substances (RoHS compliant), and recyclable packaging make this switch truly environmentally friendly.

Conserves Energy
The GO-SW-8GE eight port Gigabit Unmanaged Metal Desktop Switch helps you conserve energy automatically. The switch saves substantial amounts of power by cutting power usage for unused ports or ports connected to computers that have been shut down.

Environmentally Friendly
The GO-SW-8GE five and eight port Gigabit Unmanaged Metal Desktop Switch was designed with the environment in mind, and is compliant with Energy Star Level V, as well as with the stringent CEC and MEPS regulations that require the use of energy efficient power adapters. The switch is also built to follow RoHS standards to minimize use of hazardous materials, and uses recyclable packaging that helps reduce waste, complying with the WEEE directive.

Gigabit Connection for Home and SOHO
The GO-SW-8GE offers an economical way for SOHO and small to medium businesses (SMB) to benefit from the increased bandwidth of Gigabit Ethernet. It provides five/eight Gigabit ports for easy expansion of your network and a quick way to upgrade your network to Gigabit connectivity.
