Summary: I have only had the product in use for my home network for about 40 days.... but transferring large files has been only limited by several older HD's in my server :) Guess I know what I'm buying next!
Summary: Purchase one in February that came with rack mount ears and it was awesome right out of the box. Needed more capacity so purchased a second one a couple of weeks ago that also works fine but did not include the rack mount ears. Bummer. Needed the switch and didn't want to waste my time calling Newegg or Zyxel about the ears but it hurt my opinion of this product... so if you need to rack mount this beware.
Summary: I only have the switch about half loaded, but I tested every single port, and they are all good. I have quite a mix of devices-My primary PC is an hp elitebook on a docking station, I have a couple blue ray players, a wii with a usb-ethernet adapter, a couple old PCs, and my router is a Linksys WRT54GL. All devices work with the switch no problem.
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: Very reliable. Comes with rack mounting hardware and rubber feet. I have 14 conenctions to it and all is working well. Connected one Cat-5 from my Veriozn router to this switch and made huge difference in my LAN speed.
Summary: Item shipped to manufacturer last Friday, they should receive it this Friday. I will let you know what they determine.
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.
