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.

Seems okay so far.

Eddie B., Newegg
13 July 2014
  • Pros: Having never set up VLAN trunk and ports before, this switch made the job quite easy, even without much instruction . The Web-based GUI was somewhat easy to follow, mostly check boxes and radio buttons with the ocasional form to fill in. After getting through it twice, seemed second nature to set...
  • Cons: Surely wasn't the price.... Found it to be an entry-level for hands-on VLAN setup.

Very Capable Device

Zeprider, B&H Photo
16 January 2014
  • Excerpt: First and foremost I needed a manageable switch to build a sophisticated network at home. One of the key ingredients was LA (Link Aggregation) so that I could make use of this feature on my NAS. This works very well and accomplishes all of the tasks that I need.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Small
  • Cons: None

Almost as advertised

Anonymous, Newegg
4 January 2014
  • Pros: So far the switch has been working very smoothly for me - almost as advertised. This switch is definitely a very solid piece of networking hardware, which has been serving my needs quite well.
  • Cons: I discovered a couple of things that were not clear to me at the time of purchase. First, this switch does not support Energy Efficient Ethernet. Apparently, every other switch in SG200 series supports Energy Efficient Ethernet, with the two exceptions: SG200-08 and SG200-08P. Second, it is impos...

Mounting hardware information

unagicat, Amazon
29 May 2013
  • Summary: Is the mounting hardware for the 8-port model 19-inch rack mount, wall mount, or ? I'm looking to mount the switch on a wall or under a desk. Found my answer in the QuickStart guide - wall mount hardware is included.

Mirroring Disappointment

Anonymous, Newegg
11 May 2013
  • Summary: Very disappointed with the port "mirroring" behavior of vlan untagged members. It’s more like a one way window than a mirror (see cons).
  • Pros: 1) Works out of the box (without needing any custom configuration) 2) Quiet (no fans) 3) Over 1 year of service
  • Cons: 1) Substandard Port Mirroring. Transmitted packets of vlan untagged members are copied to mirror destination as vlan tagged. This can result in misleading network capture traces. Making issue diagnoses more difficult, complex and prone to misdiagnosis.

Good switch for basic or simple business use; understand its limitations. PS- PoW powered!

Bob, Amazon
10 January 2013
  • Summary: I'm a professional network engineer so my home network is a little on the advanced side. I purchased this switch for some port expansion upstairs where I didn't have enough cabling runs. I did not realize it could actually run off of Power over Ethernet, so that was a nice surprise.
