Summary: I use Hp switch all the time. Never had a problem with any of them.. I have tried both the 1810-24g and this. Depending on the use I will get the 1810 series but most the time I end up with the 1410. Great price and warranty. The only time I would use the 1810 series is if its a really big network that will be using the network for really large files. The 1410 doesn't have any firmware updates or anyway to adjust or need to be changed around.
Summary: I've used HP products for years without issue or complaint, and this switch is no exception. I bought it for the gigabit network I'm installing in my home ... connect it and you're in business. It's very quiet; a cooling fan is not needed. The unit is very energy-efficient, too. The ProCurve warranty is second-to-none. Bottom line - it just flat-out works. You will not regret buying this switch.
Summary: I bought this switch in part on the strength of other reviews and so far I have not been sorry. After I installed it, my before and after LAN speed testing revealed an increase way beyond my expectations, orders of magnitude improvement! It installed easily and quickly in my rack and I love the silent operation as compared to my old switch. All told, this is an excellent value for the money and delivers performance you just can't argue with.
