Very good, with some drawbacks- but get them!

  • Summary: I have 11 of these in my old network in offices that have been expanded. They have been excellent 5 port (and a few of the 8 port variety (GS108Gev2). because they are semi-managed, they make it much easier to find and correct problems on the network. They automatically fix loop and several other problems of networks build by, yes, students. Two problems- they come with a class C subnet and must be reconfigured before installing, something most small switches don't need.

Works fine

  • Summary: This switch works fine for what I needed. I don't know that it is worth the extra money over the GS105. For what I needed I could have saved some money if I purchased the non "E" version. I own both now and they both work very well.

Network monitoring, port mirroring review

kokomo483, Amazon
16 December 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this switch so that I can use port mirroring and monitor my home network. The initial setup required a Windows computer, which seems like a horrible design. Although, once I set it up, I was able to move it around with no problem. This is an awesome switch for someone wanting to manage it, considering that it is advertised as 'unmanaged.
