Summary: The customer is support also below average. After communicated with the situation, ZyXEL still refuses to respect the warranty just 2 months after expiration. This seldom occurs with other vendors. Again, this is 2 years warranty, not life time as other enterprise level products.
Pros: 24 port gigabit switch
Cons: Purchased this 2 years back without serious use at all because I had also a 16-port-gigabit switch. After 1 month use recently, it stops working: the LED light shows next port to the cable really connected. No L2 packet switching. The quality is inferior to any $10-20 consumer switches that last ...
Summary: I have $30.00 switches that have lasted years longer than this. I paid a little more for this thinking I wouldn't have to replace it for a long time. I should have paid more attention to their warranty statement. It's vague and misleading.
Pros: Worked without issues for a little over 2 years.
Cons: Died a few months after the warranty expires. This seems to be a common issue as others have indicated. Short warranty compared to competitors.
Summary: It works and is cheap enough when it's on sale that if you figure out what it costs and divide it by its likely lifespan, it may still be worth it. This is not, however, a business class switch. This is for someone who wants a rackmount switch in their home.
Pros: Was reliable while it lasted. Install looked clean with internal PS.
Cons: Appears to have a lifespan of about 30 months base on reviews here. Mine lasted 31 months.
Pros: Worked decently when it was alive, although not real fast through put.
Cons: Died after 2 years and 2 months. Looking at the other reviews, it seems to be a trend. Probably has an inferior MB in it as it powers up, but I assume the board has to process and translate the power down to what the circuit needs.
