Pros: This is an inexpensive feature rich switch. I found the features work well once I figured out what they do. I wanted to learn about VLANs and other things so I bought this. It allowed me to experiment.
Cons: Switch will lockup once every 6 months or so. It has some auto-negotiation issues. They may be patched by now. It killed my throughput from 30Mbps down to 20Mbps on a 100Mb to 1Gb endpoints. Don't know why, but I'm replacing it for this issue.
Summary: The smart switch was not so smart... the firmware resident on the device as shipped would run for most of the day but would kick me offline for a minute or so every day. It was not a good situation when trying to download large files or when using Skype. Tech support was zero help. I found a newer release of firmware online and now it seems fine.
