Summary: The admin interface decided it would stop letting me log in, and performing a factory reset resets the IP address back to default, but apparently not the password. Support, while polite, was unable to address the issue.
Summary: I am not using this in the enterprise. This is for my home network. While I consider myself technically sophisticated, I am not a network engineer. So far, using this device has been a pleasure. It worked well out of the box. It was very straight forward to configure from the browser.
Summary: I will assume that the review from January 2013 was for an earlier product. The end-of-life announcement for the SLM2024 referenced in that review shows that the CISCO SG 200-26 26-port Gigabit Smart Switch (SLM2024T-NA) is the replacement for the SLM2024. This is a current and supported product. We are very happy with the performance and features offered by this switch.
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. They manage nicely from the web interface and it's pretty quick. Lot's quicker than setting things up with CLI. You can lock things down pretty quick without spending two months in class.
Summary: I have a small 10 person office and chose this business router to handle network traffic. Has been flawlessly running non-stop for over a year. Browser-based interface was a bit tricky for me to figure out, but has priority set for VOIP phone ports and a number of other settings in place to optimize office network performance. Highly recommended.
Summary: This is a good value for the price, if you are in need of an inexpensive gigabit switch. The programming interface is clunky, and I would not recommend it if you are in need of a reliable managed environment. I purchased three of these. All of them have randomly reset to factory defaults at various times.
