Great switch. But loud for desktop use. (Is NOT "fanless")

  • Pros: Inexpensive, basic switch. Have 3 of these in my office network running 24/7. Never a problem with them.
  • Cons: None. It's a basic switch. No management issues to deal with.

Great switch for home use, not good for business use...

krone6water, Ebay
9 September 2011
  • Summary: Pro: Affordable Fan built in which is quiet around the 20 foot or longer mark Normal c13/c14 cable connection Lights on the front numbered ports Cons: Port layout is bad if you're using a 24 port patch panel. I had to use the inner 12 instead. Overall if you want an affordable, high quality gigabit and don't mind the port layout then this is a good one.

Does the job

Devon C., Newegg
1 August 2011
  • Pros: Does what it's supposed to do - I've been using it constantly for just about 2 years now with few problems. Tested successfully with active-backup and adaptive load balancing link aggregation (neither require special switch support.)
  • Cons: It has locked up on me a few times, but always when doing something "weird" (changing aggregation mode, removing/adding slaves, etc.) A quick power cycle has always fixed it - probably to flush the MAC table or something.

  • Summary: This is a great switch if you share hard disk sized data. It was plug and play for my eleven devices. Walmart site to store was the least expensive of half a dozen on-line vendors. Much quicker delivery than promised.

Easy to install, does the job!

The Barber of Civility, J&R
15 December 2010
  • Summary: I have a client with a three-story house and six PCs. He works from home often and needs the bandwidth. He has 16Mb/sec coming in, and will go up as soon as more is available. This switch will last him for a long time, no matter how high the incoming bandwidth gets.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Reliable
  • Cons: None
