Summary: There's no manual included because Cisco figures if you're buying their products you know that to program their products you have to go into the Command Line Interface (CLI), and if you're going into the CLI, then they figure you have some experience as a CCNA--or some kind of CCNA training.
Pros: Awesome features. #1: Gigabit ports! And who doesn't like Gigabit?!
