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: This Cisco switch was DEAD ON ARRIVAL. I spent over 90 minutes on the phone with FOUR levels of support only to be told I MUST PAY to return the switch to Cisco for replacement. Yesterday I waited 27 minutes on hold after calling the number they gave me only to be told to call elsewhere.
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.
