Not recommended due to buggy firmware

Philip R. Karn Jr., Amazon
1 June 2014
  • Summary: I cannot recommend this product. Although it looks great on paper -- every port supports PoE *and* 10/100/1000 Mb Ethernet -- it is seriously crippled by extraordinarily buggy firmware. The web management interface is so broken as to be useless; you should essentially treat this device as though it were an unmanaged switch (ie., no VLANs, no ACLs, etc) and consider the price you will pay accordingly.

Not Ready For Prime Time... Yet

P. LeBlanc, Amazon
19 May 2014
  • Summary: I recently bought this and set it up and was very impressed with it until I got in to the nuts and bolts of trying to incorporate it in to my existing network. I believe that most of the Web Interface Issues have been resolved although it is very slow but not much slower than my GS724T (none POE Switch). The reason I am returning this is that the VLAN functionality of the switch is crippled.

not sure what to complain about

Jason P. Loveless, Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: looked at all the reviews on here and was kinda worried about using it. but after a very quick and easy setup i found it to work fine. I installed it into a rack in a home automation system and found the "loud" fan to not be that loud. now your installing it into a bedroom yes it would be very but in a rack or closet i would say no. it's as loud as anything else that has to do the work load that it does.

Works great

Dave, Amazon
19 April 2014
  • Summary: Currently using this switch for its POE capabilities to power 10 POE Cisco 504G VOIP phones, so far has been working flawlessly without any issues for about a month now. As other review has states it is a bit loud, but for the price, features and functionality, its well worth the value. Plus if you put it in a server closet, you're all set.

Shipped me the wrong model number and the model they sent was defective

Michael Kimmey, Amazon
12 March 2014
  • Summary: When my previous network switch went bad and my business computer network went down. After waiting for 3 days with my computers down I am very unhappy with being shipped the wrong model network switch and then having to pay my IT vendor over $500 in labor charges to try to make the wrong model work.

Nice Switch But LOUD Fans

Jarrett Gorin, Amazon
19 January 2011
  • Summary: >>>>UPDATE (2014.10.20): I occasionally still get people E-mailing me about what fans I switched out to to make this thing bearable. Please see the note below regarding the fan switchout and the constsnt error messages you will receive if you do that. I gave up on this switch and replaced it with a Cisco PoE switch that has only one fan, and is MUCH more quiet.<<<<< Very nice switch. This is the heart of the CAT6 network in my new home.
