Useless as managed/smart switch

Marijan A., Newegg
29 August 2015
  • Summary: It's is a switch and it does switching... Lack of SNMP support makes it no better than $30 TP-Link smart switch, so save your money
  • Pros: Compact size
  • Cons: No SNMP polling support.

Segmented PoE

Pedro M. Dinas "Midiji", Amazon
15 September 2013
  • Summary: Nice unit but too bad it only supports PoE on half of the ports. Bad thing for flexibility. Will sell it to some one.

Beware of 1.06.2 firmware

A. Lyons, Amazon
25 August 2013
  • Summary: Overall, this is a nice switch for a fair price, but BEWARE the latest firmware, 1.06.2 at the time I publish this review. I took 1 networking class in college, but I do remember that switches should operate at Layer 2 of the OSI model, meaning the datalink level.

Drops IP fragments and doesn't support jumbos!

JC Denton, Amazon
7 December 2012
  • Summary: I bought this switch to replace an aging 5-port gigabit switch. I needed the additional ports, wanted the ability to do separate VLANs, and admired the Cisco name. Unfortunately, the SG200 series has been crippled in comparison to its SG300 series cousins.

Be sure to test each port before installing

bruce a. cheatham, Amazon
17 November 2012
  • Summary: On my third order I ultimately received a switch where all the ports worked.. I suspect this degree of QC may not be limited to Cisco: I ultimately ordered 4 of the D-Link 5 port Gigabit switches for the 2 that I needed.. Same problem: one or more of the channels was quiet.. bc

-08 model Cannot be Monitored

Allan Clark, Amazon
10 November 2012
  • Summary: The SG200 is a fairly functional switch, except for the SG200-08 model: the 8-port SG200-08 is a stripped-down variant of its larger family-members, especially in the software side. For example, it lacks SNMP service/agent, to which Cisco responds "but it has RMON".

1 of 2 bricked during firmware

Matt H., Newegg
5 June 2012
  • Summary: Cisco equipment with no console port?? Would have saved me from having to return the switch.
  • Pros: 1 of the two that I ordered is working well.
  • Cons: The other bricked during a firmware update and failed to enter recovery mode.

Failure within 8 months

Anonymous, Newegg
2 September 2009
  • Summary: Although most of my tech purchases come from newegg I purchased this elsewhere, the eggs are for Linksys not Newegg
  • Pros: Fairly inexpensive. can receive power over ethernet to power the device which saves running power if none available. Second device hasn't failed yet.
  • Cons: Does not power POE devices, which I originally thought was the case. Failed within 8 months and was replaced under waranty, runs incredibly hot which may have contributed to it's early demise. I now keep the replacement on a wire rack with airflow all around it instead of on top of other warm equ...

As expected, but one unit failed

Anonymous, Newegg
24 November 2008
  • Summary: Except for unit failure, what I would expect for the price. Manual is OK, but could use improvement. Hard to get deeper technical detail about the device. Specifically, what chip is used and a data sheet for that chip.
  • Pros: VLANs: Good for partitioning network traffic. Small form factor and low power making it ideal for embedded applications. Low cost.
  • Cons: One of our two units died after 1-2 months. No SNMP. Supports only 16 Multicast Groups with respect to IGMP snooping.

Stopped working - other model works

Anthony G., Newegg
4 October 2008
  • Summary: Great price point for this kind of device - wish it just worked. I could have used two more at work, and I know ten guys who would have liked something similar.
  • Pros: Good features for the price - nice form factor. Good manual.
  • Cons: This 8 port model died on me after a few months. (I bought a 5 port model at the same time which still works.) I bought mine elsewhere though. So disappointed that it powers up but won't work, I didn't go through the RMA process with Linksys - who wants the hassle? When products don't do what the...
