Build quality is as expected for a high end domestic/smb switch and the built in PSU and console port are nice touches.

Summary: Solid performance, a reasonable GUI and a CLI for the dedicated. Running several VLANS in the house for separation of traffic and security domains and therefore doing exactly what I wanted it to do. Build quality is as expected for a high end domestic/smb switch and the built in PSU and console port are nice touches.
Summary: This switch has an amazing feature set, especially at this price. The CLI is Cisco-ish, but has some annoying quirks that you'll need to get used to. Also, when I upgraded the firmware, it totally blew away my existing config. Be sure to take a backup before any firmware upgrade.
This switch is not suitable for a network if you want to manage it

Summary: I bought this switch to replace the 10/100 that we have on the network. I wanted a managed switch which is why I bough this one. But believe it or not the switch management software is not compatible with Windows server software. I could not get the software to run on the server. I contacted their support team and I was told that the software is only "supports Win2000/XP/2003/Vista/7 Operating System". This is a 16 port switch.

Summary: The short summary here is if you are looking to build more than just a fast network at home or in a small business, this is a layer 2 switch to consider. If you have a large enterprise, it probably isn't going to be in your standard list of installs. But maybe. First, I'll address some concerns raised in earlier reviews. 1. The switch comes with pan-head and not flat-head screws for mounting rack ears. Mine shipped with flat-head, making installation into a rack simple.
Summary: Great price in a 16 port managed switch. Gigabyte speeds and plug and play simplicity. Managing the switch is easy and can be done with included software or through a browser. Don't know its durability yet as it was recently installed.
Finally the perfect home switch for the network geek

Summary: This switch has all the enterprise features you want but in a sub-$200 price, and all gigabit copper plus a couple of fibre interfaces. There are way more supported features in this switch than I will be using. This device finally allowed me to build the home network I want without needing to scour craigslist and ebay for the deal I was looking for, and without the risk of picking up some cisqo knock off gear.
Summary: - Managed. - Fanless. - Radius Ready. - VLANs - Port security and management. - Console access with included cable (not listed in contents). - CLI - Countless other functions that will make home network enthusiast or Small Office admin very happy. - Not too expensive. What is missing? - Wish for a few POE ports.
