Excerpt: The Cisco SG300-20 units form the core switch for 9 of 11 remote sites for our organization (with SG300-28 units at the other two), and we run 12 different VLANs at each facility (voice, virtualization, staff, client, partner, lab, others), with static routing at the switch between VLANs and ACLs...
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Inexpensive, Reliable, Small
Pros: The small business line of Cisco Switches are amazing for the price. You get a fully featured managed, layer-3 switch for a couple hundred dollars. I have a 20 port and a 10 port, and both run without any hiccups. These are for both a production and lab environment, and being able to VLAN these o...
Cons: The way they number the ports is a bit of a pain. They are ordered 1-10 across the top row, and 11-20 on the bottom. Most other switches go vertically rather than horizontally. This is a cosmetic item, though.
Summary: has made me look at the Cisco SMB routers/security devices again strongly believe i will procure an ISA5xx product over a main line cisco 800/1900 series
Pros: switch is easy to use, highly configurable, great throughput, fantastic manageability. firmware updates have brought a faster GUI, and better multi browser support.
Cons: could use greater browser compatibility but such is the way with all products in this range, i have to remember in safari i cannot save changes if safari has not been reset recently, opera seems to have a few issues, though on all platforms firefox works.
Summary: This is an excellent mid level cisco product. the features make for very easy implementation of network devices. I bought these for use on a shared data VOIP network and i do not regret the purchase.
Summary: Buy Cisco rebate promotion ended before I received my switches so I was stuck with it at the listed price
Pros: Quiet, fast, low power draw, gigabit ports, runs cool, QOS, Traffic shaping, layer 2 or 3 mode, CLI & web interface. This switch puts the SRW2016 to shame. I junked 6 SRW2016 once I received and tested the first SG300. I have not had a single hiccup since installation last year. You get the picture.
Cons: Worth every penny but wished I could have spent a little less.
Summary: I purchased this to replace my old Netgear 8-port desktop 100Base unmanaged switch that use to be at the core of my small network. I was a little apprehensive about upgrading to a fully managed Cisco switch, simply because I had no experience using Cisco products or their CLI.
Pros: Easy to configure out-of-the-box, has VLAN support, and allows for configuration via CLI with a console cable.
Cons: None so far. Thumbs up to the Cisco Small Business team.
Pros: Device arrived 1 day after order, that's props to newegg. As far as the actual hardware, the build quality is good. It reminds me of the old small business Linksys switches, which is exactly what this switch is - only improved in all areas. The GUI works in chrome and firefox, which is not the ca...
Cons: Price! Kinda of costly for my budget, but it really does it all for the price so can't really complain.
Summary: easy to configure Trunking options. Awesome value for a cisco unit NiB. It even has Layer 3 switching which I have working except the default gateway, just need to figure out the syntex for programming static routes. I didn't give it all 5's acause I haven't had it long enough.
Summary: Excellent switch de la part de Cisco. Très facile à configurer, même en layer 3 (router inter-VLAN) et en link-agrégation ! Très efficace, il s'intègre parfaitement dans mon environnement de test, composé de plusieurs serveurs de virtualisation, NAS, etc...
