Summary: Used this for 4 PoE devices and a couple standard devices. It had way more features than I expected or needed, including port security, port mirroring, PoE prioritization, etc. It's been up and running since I received it and has done a great job thus far.
Summary: You really can't go wrong with the Cisco SG series of switches. They all work great, are pretty much plug/play or can be configured to the nth degree if needed and in my experience run without issue. Additionally they are a good price point for what you get.
Summary: As I work both internal and external IT support for my employer, having access to all of our VLANs at my desk can be a real time-saver. I'm feeding a VLAN trunk to my local port and carving off from there so I can have multiple devices on multiple VLANs right at my desk for troubleshooting or setup...
Pros: Compact, so it works well sitting under the monitors at my desk. It's a smart switch so I can assign VLAN on a per-port basis right at my desk.
Cons: Not a fan of the external power supply but I understand what having an internal power supply would do to the overall size of the unit. Also, the 8-port model is limited to handling 16 VLANs while the other SG200 units are able to handle up to 256 VLANs.
Excerpt: I use this in my home office. Eventually I plan to segment my network into different VLANs and this switch along with my router will be key to doing that. It appears that QOS/COS is fully supported for use with Internet telephony. Performance is good, and the fanless platform is quiet.
Pros: Cost Effective, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Reliable
Summary: This review is for the SG200-50. It would have been plug-and-play except that I wanted to upgrade the firmware to the latest version prior to installing in the office's network. First I had to load the bootloader via tFTP, not the common HTTP method.
