Summary: This switch was an upgrade for my home/lab standard consumer linksys. The major benefits include the fast switching fiber included in the unit at over 13Gbps as well as the ability to use Dot1q encapsulation is great.
Summary: Love the switch, nice feature set, a bit pricey but its been rock solid stable replacing both of these with a -50p and moving these over the SAN. In testing they excelled over the old switches on the SAN after being properly setup.
Summary: Smaller than expected, but that is better. I like that all network connections are in the back of the unit. Less wires all over my desk. I have not been able to check out each smart feature of the unit yet, but it performs very well, my network speeds went up compared to my old workgroup switch.
Summary: The SG200 line of switches from Cisco have been excellent performers for me. I have bought at least a dozen and not one has ever had an issue. What I don't like is that only 24 of the 50 ports are POE. In fact, I think it should be stated a little clearer on here that ONLY 24 ports are POE.
Summary: Perfect for my home network. I needed something with VLAN capabilities, and after my Netgear GS108-T gave up and stopped forwarding packets, I figured it was time for something a bit more serious. This has done the trick perfectly. I expect at some point I'll buy another with some POE capabilities.
Cheapest LCAP, link aggregation IEEE 802.1AX switch you can buy

Summary: Worked perfect for the main purpose I got it for and that was IEEE 802.1AX/802.3ad with my Seagate NAS and PC and Mac computers. Kinda tricky to set-up, called LCAP by switch, but not rocket science since everything is done via a nice GUI, which is kinda slow though, compared to the normal Cisco...
