Garbage

Daniel S., Newegg
22 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought this switch to be able to do VLAN trunking for my ESXi lab but it just doesn't work. It is a complete piece of garbage.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Doesn't do VLANs properly

Great inexpensive manageable GB switch.

Jerry T, Amazon
25 May 2012
  • Summary: Great choice if you need a larger GB switch for a small to medium size network. Fast throughput means backups run faster. And if you need to create VLANs, that's an option. Only thing to watch for is that the default IP address may conflict with your router, so be sure to set it BEFORE connecting it...

Fast but unreliable

Thomas A. Barnes, Amazon
22 May 2012
  • Summary: While the switch is fast, after about a week of successful use there was a glitch which left me locked out. I attempted a factory reset, but the factory reset button did not work. So now I have a really fast switch which I cannot use.

So far, it is okay and works fine!

  • Summary: Our company upgrade to Gigabit network for new location after we move. While I was searching for Gigabit unmanaged switch, I found this managed switch in great price @ $160.48($137.66+S&H+Tax).

Excellent Switch

Concordus Apps, Amazon
8 May 2012
  • Summary: This was probably the best value for a 16-port managed gigabit switch out there. So far, we are very happy with the performance. Unfortunately, it seemed to not like dealing with more than one VLAN.

Very good managed switch, big bang for the buck!!!

  • Summary: This managed switch is very feature rich, providing about anything a network savvy person would want to tweak around with network packets (port mirroring for seamless network captures), VLAN, jumbo packets, link aggregation and so on.

Works really well for the money

N. Harrington, Amazon
23 April 2012
  • Summary: I use this on a busy network that I monitor with MRTG and it has seemed to work pretty well so far. By far the cheapest SNMP monitor-able device I could find with all the other features I wanted. It stays very cool and seems to not draw much power. The layout is tried and true and easy to use.

Great switch, more options than expected

Brandon C., Newegg
24 March 2012
  • Summary: I bought this for the backbone of a home ESXi lab. It was cheap, rackmountable, and would give me VLAN and aggregation support. Barring any future failures, I couldn't be happier.
  • Pros: Caught it on sale for a bit less than I'd have expected to pay for an unmanaged switch. Web interface is adequate, certainly preferable to me than using some console interface. I'm not sure if I'll miss a CLI or not...but for my needs, it looks like this switch has enough in the web interface to ...
  • Cons: No complaints on Zyxel's side, although I'm disappointed in Newegg shipping this in the original box without at least sealing it first. There was no tape on it, so someone could easily have opened it up and taken things out of it if they wanted to. Luckily, that didn't happen. SNTP wants exact da...

Oh dear

Steve B., Newegg
23 March 2012
  • Summary: Even if I am unable to restore 802.1x functionality, the price/Gbps port is phenomenal.
  • Pros: Fantastic price, high switch fabric capacity, lots of ports for not a lot of money.
  • Cons: I have owned other ZyXEL switches for years and had trouble free service. I bought three of these to work on more advanced setups. In particular wanted to work with 802.1x. The firmware seems to have a few bugs associated with this. The "Shared Key" only accepts numerics, and if you use 17 charac...
