The only issue with the DLink ones are the external power supply (4-8 port desktop switches), they are pretty flakey, usually need a replacement within a few months of operations, but after buying a replacement from the radio shack/dick smith/jay car..., they're usually fine.
Linksys switches have a limited lifetime warranty (whatever that means) on the gigabit 24 port switches. DLink have about 3 to 5 years depending. TP Link and Repotec I'm unsure of, the website doesn't list anything and neither does my supplier. My guess would be 1 year. The TP Link ones are pretty much no frills, I have a 8 port 10/100 and can max it out without and problems.
