Pros: Build Quality is good. Thing is much heavier than the old switch it replaced. Unit is shallow (I needed a shallow switch to fit in my rack). Comes with rack ears. Compatible with all my devices. Quality product.
Cons: None for now. Warranty only two years maybe a con? Jury still out on long term reliability.
Pros: Cheap, Fast, Metal case, Quiet, no powerbrick (internal PSU), rack mountable (if you care), fast uplinks (if you need it).
Cons: It froze up on me. After a few weeks one day I found I could not reach anything from anywhere. Eventually I found the switch was hanging, had to power cycle. This NEVER happened to me before with any switch. I run a simple home network, nothing major. No serious load, some video streaming from home server. Bummer.
Pros: Item is well constructed and works right out of the box. Installed two into an 8 server rack, connected equipment, and powered up. Everything worked fine. Servers supported /protected by APC SmartUPS 2200.
Cons: One unit failed November 28 during midnight routine backup, which represents a medium load for this time of year. Item failed 46 minutes into job.
