Good Switch, Deceptive Advertising

N/A, Newegg
14 December 2012
  • Pros: Reliable, Easily Configurable, Rugged
  • Cons: Only receives Upstream POE, does not provide Downstream POE. This means that the switch can be powered via POE, but cannot power devices (such as IP Phones) using POE. The advertising did not not clearly state this.

Item not as described

N/A, Newegg
15 November 2012
  • Pros: It is a gig switch and does support vlans and jumbo frames.
  • Cons: It isn't POE, it can obtain power from a standard PoE device on Port 1, making the switch ideal for deployments where a power outlet is not available; such flexibility helps you extend the network to wherever an Ethernet cable can reach.

Excellent Switch

N/A, Newegg
16 July 2012
  • Summary: Wish the 16-port model was PoE...
  • Pros: Blazing fast full gig switch, powered via PoE. Web interface is nice and much faster than the one on my previous Cisco Small Business switch. Port mirroring works well. Completely silent.
  • Cons: Update process is a bit complex with dual images

HP gigabit switch

Tech Junkie, Newegg
24 May 2012
  • Summary: Update to newest firmware P2.2 I think it is.
  • Pros: This is a true gigabit switch. For some reason, other switches claim to be and are not gigabit. hmmmmm. I love rebooting this switch remotely. Saves me lots of time.
  • Cons: none

Not very configurable

Byron G., Newegg
4 April 2011
  • Summary: I'm not sure if there are better options out there for 8 port 1 Gig, "managed" switches. Still, since it doesn't do what I was hoping for probably could've got one a little less expensive and unmanaged.
  • Pros: Warranty, speed, some configurations. Works right out of the box.
  • Cons: I'm not expert on configuring switches. The configuration setup for this ProCurve is different than the demo software on HP's site. Not even close. When you figure cost per port it's right up there with some higher end ProCurve products so I'm not sure why they don't have the same functionality. ...

Great switch

Oeystein B., Newegg
26 March 2011
  • Summary: As some other reviewer stated: The PoE statement from Newegg is inaccurate as this switch does NOT provide PoE. However, it can be powered by using an uplink to port #1 from a PoE capable switch.
  • Pros: We use ~8 of these switches in an office/lab environment where we didn't want fans to make noise, and these little switches are fantastic!! (we also have the 24-port version, and are equially happy with those) The VLAN support is great and overall a lot of functionality for the money.
  • Cons: None

The best GigE network tap on earth

Mel B., Newegg
21 November 2010
  • Summary: I use this primarily for network monitoring and diagnostics. Port mirroring at GigE speeds is fantastic, and the snmp support lets you track historical statistics as well. small, highly portable, and the PoE power optinon let's me just snap it into an existing network without scrounging for an AC...
  • Pros: Can mirror data from multiple ports, even on different vlans, to one sniffer port. Latest software from Mar2010 includes new features, including enhanced snmp.
  • Cons: No spanning tree protocol support, although it has a proprietary loop prevention option. This means you can't use it as part of a redundant switched path.

Good switch - if you only need 8 ports

Anonymous, Newegg
9 July 2010
  • Pros: Pretty easy to setup. Pretty good documentation, although, hard to sift through on HP's site.
  • Cons: THIS IS NOT A POE SWITCH. NEWEGG'S SPEC'S ARE INACCURATE. It has a ONE port on it, that can RECEIVE POWER through an actual POE switch for BACKUP POWER. THIS SWITCH CANNOT POWER A POE CAPABLY DEVICE.
