It's miss leading: if you need a full 48 ...

John Crehore, Amazon
19 August 2014
  • Summary: It's miss leading: if you need a full 48 port PoE switch, this is not for you as it only has 24 ports PoE and the description does NOT make that evident.

Compatibility problems

Bianca W., Newegg
25 October 2012
  • Summary: I run a small network with about 20 desktops. After the upgrade to the cisco switch, three of the on-board realtek NICs (on gigabyte motherboards) would not operate at 1 gigabit and also had horrible performance over windows networking and ms sql server. I'm talking 2, maybe 3 kilobytes per second.
  • Pros: lots of ports price web interface
  • Cons: Serious compatibility issues

No PoE

Anonymous, Newegg
27 August 2012
  • Summary: $600 for gigabit switch with no PoE seems overpriced to me.
  • Pros: Gigabit switch...
  • Cons: I'm not sure why IEEE 802.3af is listed for this model. It DOES NOT HAVE PoE. The model with PoE is the SG200-50P, not this one. Very upset about this.

Not Great, but not bad either

David Molley, Amazon
20 February 2012
  • Summary: It is slow to load the web config pages and quite often hangs in mid-page requiring a browser refresh. The 24 port version does the same thing. The 2 fans are loud and distracting. I have it installed near my workstation and it is annoying. If you install it in a rack in a CO I guess it would be OK.

CISCO support not for home residence

Steven Keech, Amazon
18 September 2011
  • Summary: Beware that when you update the firmware ... as you must ... the boot code MUST be updated first or firmware will be frozen forever at 1.3.5. After making this mistake I called CISCO support: CISCO told me I could only get engineer support if I was a business or bought it from CISCO.

Feature set missing one important thing

Eric F., Newegg
26 August 2011
  • Summary: Cisco kept Bonjour, of all things, but dropped SNMP. I missed that omission in the list of other very useful features, which means that I cannot monitor this switch with our centralized NMS without writing a wget wrapper.
  • Pros: High port density in an inexpensive switch; solid feature set with LACP, LLDP, port mirroring, QoS, 802.1x and 802.1q.
  • Cons: No SNMP. Cisco has issued an errata that says the mentions of SNMP in the manual were in error and will be removed in the next iteration of the manual.
