Cons: Web interface is painfully slow. I have a couple ports that continually have transmit and receive errors no matter what device I have plugged into them, so I know this is an issue with the switch. As others have said, their tech support is a total joke.
Pros: I got 3 of these in December of 2011. Been running them ever since as our backbone for an office of 60 people. No issues with them. We have had no downtime and compared to our old 3com 24port gig switches they perform better. Speeds are very fast for all of our range of printers, laptops, desktops. Very pleased with this purchase so far.
Cons: Fan noise is loud. Could use better white pages to cover the web inteface.
Cons: This product did not work out of the box. The web interface locks up and the thruoghput per port is less that 1000kbps. The only way I have been able to access the Web interface is with a computer running IE 6. (7,8 and 9 lock up). I have contacted their Tech Support department. Tier 1 Tech Support is a JOKE. They do not even understand simple IP address settings. Teir 2 was more helpful. At least they understood IP settings. They do not however have the authority to ...
Pros: The switch is working fine, as expected, except for the noise.
Cons: The fan is noisy. Our hub is right next to my desk and the noise from the switch is loud and even makes phone calls difficult to hear. TrendNet's solution is to buy a new fan. Which I might do, because we can't function without a switch.
Pros: Pro's, easy to setup, config and upgrade the firmware. Rock solid, mine was up for about 400 days without one xfer error until we lost power for a few hours and our UPS couldn't last that long :p. 48 port gigabit switch at a great price. I was a bit nervous, I think someone on here (although the post isn't here) said that the switch did poorly with large data transfers that has not been my experience. It does a great job and we haven't had one problem in several years...
Cons: Firmware upgrades default back to a default IP address that's not my network range, no biggie and only a small con. No mac address filtering / hardware filtering although I don't know if new firmware adds that functionality.
