It's decent; a toss-up between this and a used HP ProCurve...

C. Ross "Undercover Redneck", Amazon
2 July 2015
  • Summary: I purchased this switch for my wife's small business, as I was expanding her IT infrastructure to include two workstations, several wireless access points, and a file server. I wanted a small, energy-efficient switch that also had PoE to help keep the rat's nest of power cables to a minimum.

  • Summary: a little different to configure than traditional cisco swithes, had some problems to allow traffic across trunks, this switch is connected to 2 additional SG200 being powered from the main switch, i'm planning to replace it with an SG300 to have L3 functionality...

Decent switch but not for mission critical use

  • Summary: Good switch - but had hardware failure within one year. Half the port suddenly went dead. Luckily this happened one week before the warranty expired, so Cisco is sending a replacement.

Lots of features for the price

Nacho, Amazon

  • 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.

Solid Switch - Solid Price

Edward A. Luczycki, Amazon

  • 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.

Desktop smart switch!

Todd L., Newegg
24 April 2015
  • 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.

Look closely before buying if need PoE

CCSG, Amazon
24 March 2015
  • Summary: Wish the description was a little clearer on the PoE. Sure, could have looked closely at the pictures but also should have it in the description. Luckily only needed 12 PoE ports for an install. Bought 2 will return 1.

Solid Gig Switch

Andrew, B&H Photo
25 February 2015
  • 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
