Decent switch but not for mission critical use

Elan, Amazon
19 May 2015
  • 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.

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.

SG200 PoE units only have HALF the ports available for PoE

Special K, Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: Nowhere in the page description for the SG200-08P does it tell you that only HALF the 8 ports are assigned to Power over Ethernet. I needed 6 PoE ports, and a 8 port PoE unit sounded perfect. However, when this unit arrived, only 4 ports are PoE. The rest are regular Etherenet.

-08 only supports some SG200 features

Gregory G., Newegg
19 April 2014
  • Summary: Should have bought an SG300, or something else.
  • Pros: Nice little switch with a web GUI interface. Lots of good features in a compact metal case. Locking tab on the external power supply lead for a secure fit.
  • Cons: The -08 does NOT support SNMP, CDP, or many other features that the larger SG200 series support. It runs a limited 1.0.x software version, and can not be upgraded to the 1.3 that the bigger switches use. I'm a bit peeved by this, as the Cisco documentation does not call this out. Also, the power ...

Caveats

Anonymous, Newegg
18 January 2014
  • Pros: Desktop Style (cable/ports in back, status LEDs on front bezel) Quite (no fans) No pre use setup required (ready to go out of the box)
  • Cons: The following caveats are acknowledged in release 1.0.7.4: Problem: The VLAN tag is not stripped for mirrored packets. Solution: None. This is a hardware limitation. Problem: When there are multiple port mirroring sessions, broadcast and multicast packets are mirrored twice on the first session, ...

Meh

DAVID C., Newegg
30 August 2013
  • Summary: Good if you want to do VLANs, LAG/LACP, need DSCP and use VoIP phones.
  • Pros: Features galore. Dynamic LACP. VLANs. All the other good stuff.
  • Cons: Actually seeing (about 10%) worse performance with these switches compared against a layer 2 unmanaged TrendNet TEG-S80G. I suppose it's all the overhead of all those extra "features".

decent switch not without faults

Fulviu B., Newegg
20 March 2013
  • Summary: This switch is used to connect multiple rooms in our house (most connections are to smart TVs, Blu-ray players, ps3 etc) and after returning from 2 vacations, Netflix streaming and dlna streaming would freeze after a few minutes of play until the switch was rebooted, then everything was fine.
  • Pros: I like the management interface, pretty easy to get going, small footprint. Great transfer speeds.
  • Cons: when powered down, and back on, the settings are lost, I have to re-do my setup. After long periods of inactivity (days) the switch seems to need a power off/on cycle.

Nice, but not that nice. It has quirks.

zenmaster43, B&H Photo
21 May 2012
  • Excerpt: We bought 3 of them and have been kicking ourselves ever since. We didn't realize the don't come with SNMP support, or it's so deeply buried in the user interface it'll never surface. One of these switches went rogue on us until we could isolate how to keep it from doing so.
  • Pros: Fast, Small
  • Cons: Incompatible

Good Product, Bad Description

William Hodges, Amazon
7 April 2012
  • Summary: No where in any descritption was it disclosed that only half the 24 ports were POE. That is right only 12 ports are POE. Everything else is fine but if you are looking for more than 12 POE ports look elsewhere...
