Summary: If you need a great switch for the $, these are it. These are not fully managed solutions, but are great for small to medium size businesses.

Summary: Overall, very happy with this unit. Will use for other projects..
Pros: Fast, flexible, and many options for optimization. We setup a small office with this, wanted a guest network.

This unit let me know I had a a problem with one of my CATs, and it was easy to trace where using the Web Management line diagnostic tools.
