Great Switch

  • Summary: Comments about HP ProCurve 1800-24G Managed Ethernet Switch: I use these in setups that I configure for customers and then ship to very remote locations. You won't find a more reliable or faster gig switch at this price.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Reliable, Small

excellent switch

J. L., Newegg
30 March 2009
  • Summary: For small business its fantastic. Reliable and tech support is good. Everything basic you could ask for for the price.
  • Pros: Easy to use interface, VLANs work well, no fans, and a lifetime warranty!
  • Cons: when setting VLANs ports can be in 2 groups at once. It doesnt take the port out of group 1 when assigned to another VLAN #. Small detail but it caused some issues for me until I found it.

Satisfied

Ronald R., Newegg
16 March 2009
  • Summary: As stated in other reviews the package was missing a couple screws. I called right before 5PM and HP had them to me by 10AM the next morning. The native English speaking tech support was knowledgeable and friendly. It was a stark contrast to the other vendors, you know who they are.
  • Pros: Rack mountable, intuitive web management interface that worked in Firefox, VLANs, quiet.
  • Cons: Missing mounting screws

User Review

Bryan D., Newegg
10 March 2009
  • Summary: This is the fourth one I've bought at work. Easy to setup, and just work - I've never had to reboot any of them. At the price I'm not necessarily disappointed with the management options, but there are times I wish we could afford something more robust.
  • Pros: Very fast, good price for 24-port gigabit with some management options.
  • Cons: Management interface leaves a lot to be desired. The simple ability to name a port (ie, which user is connected to it) would be fantastic.

fine switch

Scott B., Newegg
12 January 2009
  • Summary: Recommended.
  • Pros: I have now purchased 15 of these for our company to replace the DLink DGS1224T (rev c) which I do not recommend under any circumstances. These work very well. No fans, silent. Web management. Lifetime warranty. Direct 800 number to Procurve support.
  • Cons: Supplied parts kit included 4 bracket screws instead of the required 8 (4 per bracket). This was true for all 15 units purchased in three separate orders. HP Procurve support sent replacement kits overnight. The correct part number for the kit is 5069-6535. User manual is incorrect. These switche...

Great Switch

Kelvin S., Newegg
25 September 2008
  • Summary: Overall a great switch for anyone who doesn't need layer 3 switching.
  • Pros: Fanless, quiet design. This switch creates very little heat and is an awesome buy for the money. The management interface is simple, easy to use and provides plenty of options on each port.
  • Cons: Some people may find the price somewhat high.

Nothing but good

Paul S., Newegg
9 September 2008
  • Pros: Very good switch for the price, have not found any compatibility issues with 10bt, 100bt, and 1000bt devices on the same switch like you will find with the cheaper products. Worth every penny if you want a reliable no-fuss switch.
  • Cons: No PoE, no fast uplink for stacking - but hey, what do you want for this great price?

Well made switch

Kevin H., Newegg
28 June 2008
  • Summary: If you're putting this in a small area that doesn't get any airflow think about changing that or looking for a different unit.
  • Pros: This is the second 1800-24g switch we have purchased for this office. Easy to get running in a few minutes. It works great and cranks out large file transfers, VoIP calls & more just fine. This thing is silent and has no fans, it feels slightly warm to the touch but should be of no concern if the...
  • Cons: Management interface feels dated.

Fast, cheap & reliable; who says you can't have it all?

Mathew S., Newegg
13 June 2007
  • Summary: I'm also running the 8-port model at home, amazing performace, no fan and zero issues in 2 months running. For less than twice the cost of a Netgear/Linksys you get a "real" managed Gigabyte switch with terrific throughput.
  • Pros: Been running this in a server lab for 5+ months now, -zero- issues. Noticably faster than 3 year old Cisco 2900 series. Believe this is due to backplane throughput. Cisco's have more config options, but unless you really need something Cisco specifc, the cost and effort of configuring/maintaining...

Highly recommend for small office

Kirk V., Newegg
23 February 2007
  • Summary: I would highly recommend this unit if you need a dependable, quiet switch without stat-reporting. It also has the ability to limit port speeds for ubiquitous bandwidth hogs and to trunk ports together for added bandwidth if you have multiple nics (e.g. on your server).
  • Pros: This unit replaced our seven year old HP switch and it works excellent out of the box. Very quiet, minimal but useful management options, gigabit ports, and lifetime-next day replacement warranty.
  • Cons: Be careful of the comparable unit by another *popular brand* if you plan to use this in a non-tech closet setting. The "other" unit is continually rated as being loud.
