Summary: our church had dell managed switch but it had serge issue with data line and I replaced with this model. it is quite and working well so far. this product is for someone who need better switch than home network product. One of my branch offices has this model and I haven't had any problem for 3 years since I installed this switches. I like Cisco switches.
Summary: Bought this so I can link aggregate my Synology NAS and it worked like a charm. I have the NAS on LACP and a Linux box on LACP and using NFS the mounted files act if they were on local disk. Even from a non LACP I was able to transfer files at 100MB+/s, that bytes not bits.
Summary: The SG200 is sweet :-) works like a charm. The thing that took some time and I had to read the manual carefully to figure out, is how to set the DNS so that the switch can auto sync with the NIST time servers. Not sure why Cisco didn't have the DNS entries under the Administration\IPv4 Interface menu, so that you can set it on one place, but once I saw that this had to be set under IP Configuration\Domain Name System, it was just plug and play after that.
Summary: You simply cannot beat the quality, reliability, & speed of this device. No one makes a device with these specs for this $. Definitely should be your switch of choice if you need a switch this size. If you need Layer 2/3 look at the SG300 units.
Summary: If quality is important to you, then Cisco is the obvious brand to choose in regards to switches. We have gone through numerous switches made by other companies like D-Link and Linksys, all were great value for their price. Eventually we got tired of our network going down once a year due to ports closing or the ethernet ports malfunctioning. As long as this unit lasts 3-4 years we will be happy.
Summary: I have now installed two of these switches and have been very pleased with their performance. I use most of the 12 POE ports for VoIP telephones and am extremely happy with the unit's performance.
An outstanding L2 Gigabit Switch (SG200-26 24 10/100/1000)

Summary: Prompt shipping, product packaging was typical of Cisco, outstanding. Let's get down to functionality. Straight out of the box this switch did not flinch when connecting it to network. It has a lot more features than I thought of an L2 switch. Although I must say I don't use them all for my home network. I do utilize trunking between my SG200-26 and my QNAP TS-419+ server. I liked the idea of tagging each port with the device name connected to it.
Full featured switch does port and VLAN mirroring!

Summary: While not clear (at least to me) from the description and documentation, this is a full featured Cisco smart switch. It can do port mirroring and VLAN mirroring. This means that you can set the switch to mirror all the traffic on a specific port to a network monitor, making possible to track down really hard problems that there really is no other way to find.
I would purchase this item again, in fact I will be purchasing another for my Daughter

Summary: First off, Amazon's shipping was excellent being FREE and arriving ahead of schedule. Second, Cisco's packaging of their product was EXCEPTIONAL as expected. Having had roughly 35 years experience with Cisco Products, 4500, 6500,7500 and Cisco Routers of nearly all models for a large corporation it seemed there was no other choice for my home. The SG200-26 switch was a clear choice. This switch was literally Plug & Play.
