Summary: This my 2rd stacked unit along side the previous ones I've gotten. They all work together as intended. They stack very easily. they have tons of features for this price range for a 1Gig Stackable unit compared to others. I like the life time warranty on them. highly recommend for small businesses.
Summary: Ive installed these switches for a couple of clients, and havent had to touch them since the initial configuration. The web interface can be really slow, but if the switch is reliable, then youll never have to use it again anyways.
Pros: Reliable, lots of features.
Cons: Web interface is slow like every netgear smart switch Ive used. A little bit on the loud side, if I recall correctly.
Summary: This is a great unit that provides most of the features of a managed switch at a low price. The stackable function however is top notch. Stacking units with a HDMI cable is a pretty smart way to do it, making it quite cheap for additional capacity requirements. I've had one of these running for quite some time, using LACP and other advanced functions.
Summary: Bought 3 had a network admin friend help setup. Kept dropping workstations, tech support said to upgrade firmware, did that no help. One of the bunch is bad, too much trouble. Bought 3 dumb gigabit switches work perfect out of the box.
