Summary: With the "modern" firmware, these seem to do everything you would want to do. SMTP data, port mirroring, VLAN's, LAG's.... (and a whole lot more). Way better done than the SG200-8. With the recent drops in price, they are a tough switch to beat.
Summary: Its a little green-er: more energy efficient and probably uses less material in the build, so overall it's a little more eco-friendly.
Pros: No 1: it's quiet. Bought this to replace its 24 port predecessor that had 3 small fans on the left side (one fan was failing, getting noisy - although the switch itself was just fine). I use this in a home network and the noise in the rack is now all but gone. No 2: nice feature set; good value; ...
Cons: Not quite as "commercial / industrial" as its predecessor --
Cons: Only half the switch is POE, pretty much defeating the primary reason I bought it. I guess from now on I shouldn't trust Newegg's specifications section, and instead spend the time downloading the actual manufacturer manual, as well as read ALL the reviews closely. Considering sending it back.
Summary: On the GUI Slowness I notice that if you use IE 10+ you need to do compatibility mode and that slows down the GUI along with HTTPS. I use Firefox just for the GUI and it seems to run a lot better but on HTTPS its still a little slow but not so slow its imposable to do any thing.
Pros: Very nice and very fast switch. perfect for Small business. I use this switch at work and for my home network and it runs perfectly.
Cons: Vlans are a bit confusing but then I and not a CCNA so it could be me not understanding
Excerpt: Excellent switch with lots of features. Easy to configure and get up an running. We have many of these installed at client offices and have never had an issue. The only downside is only half the ports are POE, but that was expected.
Summary: Paired this with a Cisco SG300-10MP and works great. I was planning on deploying Cisco small business equipment as a secondary/backup choice but have changed my mind since working with this product. For the price and the features Cisco SB is tough to beat.
Pros: Inexpensive for the features. Easy to deploy. Friendly for the network admin. Cisco's name and reliability.
