Filet mignon at a hamburger price, but not for the amateur.

Summary: This inexpensive managed switch is a gem; it does more or less the same things as its more expensive brethren in the illustrious cisco family, but it is fanless. All I had to do was upgrade the firmware (free from cisco) and configure it with VLANS, a few ALCs and a management address.
Great affordable POE enabled router, prefect for IP cameras. - SEE EDIT

Summary: I have purchased 10-15 of these so far and they have worked perfectly every time. I am using these for IP security cameras and they fit what I needed perfectly. The managed interface is nice to see whats going on if I have a camera go offline I can remotely power cycle the camera and such saving me...
Summary: I bought this switch primarily for its PoE capability. It powers the IP phones in place of bulky transformers and makes an IP phone system installation very clean. This is the third Cisco PoE switch I've purchased for my customer's phone systems, and all 3 have been trouble free and easy to install.
Summary: Fast shipping in 2 days! Easy to use and working perfectly! Completed a Condo building with 4 floors! You will not be disappointed! Used with EAP 300 wifi points! great results of 20 download speeds and 10 uploads with a 50/10 comcast plan.
Summary: Using this switch with 4 POE access points and 4 that are not POE. I like it so much, I wish I had purchased model with more ports. Web GUI makes it easy to manage. NOTE: there is no DHCP server on this unit. Speeds are more than enough for the 10 megabit internet connection from the cable company.
Summary: Purchased for use with Cisco SPA 500-series IP phones + UC320. They work together very nicely with minimal effort needed to configure the switch - the auto-discovery set up a separate VLAN for voice, the phones and UC320 just work without drama.
Summary: These switches are good except for one big problem that affected one of our installations. Cisco acknowledged the bug, but won't work on it any further without us doing a bunch more work on their behalf. We decided that we'll just use another brand of switches.
Summary: I use this switch to run a multichannel POE HD camera setup with a PC. The initial setup with this switch took longer than I'd like to admit, but this is something that I see with just about every piece of network equipment from routers to cameras the first time they get hooked up.
Summary: I work for a telephone company that installs SIP telephones and this is my go to line is switches. I use the 24 port more often but they have both proven to be ultra reliable and a cinch to configure.
