Drops IP fragments and doesn't support jumbos!

JC Denton, Amazon
26 July 2014
  • 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. This switch will often behave like a L3 firewall. It drops IP fragments and it doesn't support jumbos. None of these "features" are readily described in the documentation.

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
19 March 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. Ok, that sounds like technical babble to most of you, but let me tell you why you should care.

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.
