  • Summary: Works as advertised for a really cheap cost! Has a high pitched ring that comes and goes but being in a server room don't really care. Thanks again!

Great switch, if you prefer 24x7x350 operation

  • Pros: It's cheap, it's easy to configure, it's purple, and it has 48 ports that pass traffic most of the time
  • Cons: It fails, it locks up, it losses it's config, it doesn't always work if you unplug it and plug it back in, it hates losing power, it's bad at being reliable

  • Excerpt: Purchased to replace two 10 year old switches. Put them in the rack, plugged them in, switched over from old switches and they work. Much faster.
  • Pros: Easily Expanded, Easy To Set Up, Fast

If you need Gigabit speed on the cheap, get it. Unless you need ssh/telnet.

  • Summary: Never been a fan of NetGear (too many other NetGear products have failed on me) but typically their products are *very* cheap when compared to Cisco. Upside on this switch, supports 802.3ab (LACP), downside = can't ssh/telnet into it, have to manage it from the built-in website (which makes automation a pain).

Version 4

  • Summary: Resilience? - I've had one of these switches in the past and a port died on it, but the warranty took care of that. Haven't had the new ones long enough to judge long-term reliability.
  • Pros: Cost - Got this thing on sale for >$400 from Newegg after coupon. Impossible to beat. Even Trendnet doesn't come close.
  • Cons: Robustitude - Not a lot of features. In my case this was not a con.

not for enterprise

  • Summary: Only Web UI. No telnet access. No way to back up configs via rancid. Must have gui administration. Firmware management requires windows, on the local subnet, even.
  • Pros: cheap.
  • Cons: Missing many critical enterprise features:

You get what you pay for

Mark W., Newegg

  • Summary: I purchased 3 of these, hardware version 3 and 2 of them have already failed! The first one, the whole left side of the switch went dead - but the right side still worked. The 2nd one, which is only 3 months in use, just hold solid green lights on it. When I rebooted it, no lights.....dead. It's hard to want to do an RMA for something that you KNOW is going to fail anyway at some point.
  • Pros: Easy to setup, inexpensive, pretty purple color
  • Cons: I have 8 of these switches, 4 of which were hardware version 1 so I didn't think to much of it when 2 of those units crashed in 3 years.
