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
Summary: This review is for the SG200-50. It would have been plug-and-play except that I wanted to upgrade the firmware to the latest version prior to installing in the office's network. First I had to load the bootloader via tFTP, not the common HTTP method.
Summary: For most home networks this would be over kill. However I don't think my situation is far from the norm today. My network had become unmanageable; 3 - 8 port split POE switches, 1-5 port, 1 high end router with 4 high end wireless AP's installed.. At times over 50 wireless devices on the network.
