Summary: I have three of them. One in a classroom of 13 computers, one in the lab and the other one connecting 8 more computers. They all worked right out of the box with both CAT5 and CAT6 cables. I like the feature of not having to created crossover cable as they do communicate with each other with both crossover and straight trough cable. I also like having the cables and the light indicators in the front. They are very very quit and do not overheat.
Summary: Great Switch for Small office, works perfectly. It is NOT a GIGABIT switch, is 10/100. I just needed a 16 port Switch so I can plug in test machines, it works great never needs resetting. I have had it running non-stop for 6 months so far. I picked this one because the power is in the back and Plugs are in front. IT is a pain to have power in front, people usually accidentally unplug the power. It is also small. It is about 8 inches wide 2inches tall.
Does this job. But the fan noise is insanely loud!

Summary: I have 2 of these. One was their first model that had only a minor level of fan noise. Enough that it wouldn't bother you if it was in your office with out.. But thinking I'd get the same thing, I ordered a second unit to power my PoE Dahua (also known as Q-See) shown here http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H2VSTG2/ref=oh_details_o06_s01_i01?
Summary: I purchased this switch for one of my customers and to reside in a very small network closet. The switch works very well, and the ports power down to conserve power when not in use. When I registered the product, I expected to see a warranty much greater than 2 years. Under the EIA/TIA specifications, I have to provide my customer with a 25 year warranty on the structured wiring.
Summary: This switch doesn't give me any trouble. It has a good price point, plenty of ports and is perfectly quiet. However, I somewhat regret not getting an unmanaged 1GB switch, since so much of my data is large graphics files.
Summary: This is a nice switch. It is a good value for the money. However, I wouldn't put this switch anywhere you want low noise levels. The twin fans are loud and sound like when a fan is going out in your computer.
