Summary: This is a great product so far. I have been working in tech for a long time and Cisco has been a name to trust and used everywhere. I think that their name is more reliable then their product at this time but we shall see as time moves on. THINGS TO THINK ABOUT... 1: all the ports on the LEFT (1-12 and 24-36) are POE.
Summary: Simple and efficient design; set up within our system to handle VOIP phones and it works great. LANstreet got it to us overnight cause we were desperate for it. Great company and fast shipping!!
Summary: we have a newly built office and, of course, expected to be wireless through out. Service kept dropping and after our IT guy tried various things we had to go ahead and hardwire our connection. We are pretty sure it has something to do with the office next door and the room with xray machine against our sharing wall. Since installing the Smart Switch we are happily enjoying our great internet service but a little bonus..
Summary: Only 24 of the ports are POE, which I found out only after unboxing and trying to replace an old POE switch in our rack. Deceptive advertising on the part of Cisco, which is why I just bought a Netgear to replace it. I was initially very pleased to see an updated web interface on this switch, and the fans were quieter than usual, so it's really a shame. [UPDATE] This detail appears to have been added to the description now.
Switch performs well but no Layer 3 (as mentioned in capabilities) and may have other quirks

Summary: The PoE on this switch works great for our VOIP phones, and in general the switch performs well. Note that there is no Layer 3 capability (and no CLI), so if you need that buy at least the Series 300. Fortunately, I had another switch that already had Layer 3 and was able to use it for the Layer 3 Voice VLAN prioritization in conjunction with this switch.
Excerpt: Где-то в недрах реализации http встроенного веб-сервера есть критическая ошибка. Из-за нее в окнах интерфейса настройки свитча то остается пустое поле, то появляются какие-то цифры, то куски html-кода. Если перейти в другой пункт меню, пока не загрузился открытый ранее, наверняка нарвешься на ошибку. В итоге настройка растягивается на часы. Альтернатива - редактировать конфиг на компе и загружать целиком по TFTP (http-то не работает!).
