5 out of 5 eggsIt Works

Pros: Small size, relatively easy setup, best value for a multi-port PoE switch.

Cons: Not real intuitive setup

Other Thoughts: Been using 10 of these for over a year without any problems. The initial configuration was not as intuitive as I thought it could be but once you figure out where everything is, it's a snap. I would buy again.

3 out of 5 eggsCheap - PoE - Hard to Manage

Pros: Great price for an 8 port GigE switch with 4 of the ports supporting PoE. And managed too.

For regular use, it appears to work fine. However, that's the only highlights.

Cons: Where to begin? I bought this switch to extend my network from a core Dell PowerEdge to my upstairs. Plan was to power an AP and PoE enabled camera, and also provide hardwired access to the other devices.

1) Management - Since I trunked the switch to my core and dont use VLAN 1, the only way to manage the switch was to be directly connected to it, *and* to install software. No web interface, Windows software only. As a Mac user, that entails installing in Parallels and temporarily bridging the network.

2) No Detailed Stats or SNMP - PoE device active? Check. Actual power draw against the 45W? Not so much. I didn't mind too much, but for troubleshooting, I prefer to remotely log into devices from my office and not hunkered over in a linen closet.

3) Issues with trunked APs - I have a Ubiquiti AP Pro that supports VLANs. Once configured on a port for trunking one VLAN and PVID/untrunked for the other, I'd see PHY go down on the AP for 3-5 seconds, then restore. This would happen intermittently and cause horrible performance. The ifconfig on the AP didn't show anything, and no errors clocked on the switch.

Even after using an external PoE injector on an non-PoE port, still the same issue. When connected to a similarly configured port on my Dell switch, rock solid and stable.

So in my mind, without statistics and causing issues with devices, I consider the switch to be non-operational.

Other Thoughts: The price is good -- for a managed switch. But with the issues on the management software and up/down on the interface, this is very expensive unmanaged switch in my opinion. I'll spend the additional $40-60 for a more robust 8-port switch with PoE.

Pros: Price

Cons: PoE will not support Cisco access points though they claim standard IEEE 802.3af support and 45W max total.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I like this product because I could connect my IP cameras directly to this switch plus I connected my Synology DS111 to it so everything would sink nice.

Cons: I just observed that my LAN is really slow just in last few days, and my connection to the internet is just terrible. I disconnected this switch and everything works fine now. Planing to return.

Other Thoughts: I got this switch 05/04/2011 so you make a judgment

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Niche Product

Pros: The unit itself is aesthetically pleasing, the 'unduly-controversial' management app / interface (see below) is simple & pretty straightforward/navigable, and throughput shows unwavering full-wire speed on large file transfers. Love the compact form factor for a power-origination PoE switch, and for it's smaller size, definitely has the added weight-to-volume (relative to a pure 'dumb switch' w/ metal casing, like my TEG-S80g) to feel particularly substantive. To the same effect, I am really impressed with the PoE functionality given the small power adapter, chord, and small barrel-type DC connector, as they're much easier to work with in smaller and/or cable-cluttered spaces. I haven't bought all the hardware I need just yet for implementing my intended VLANs, QoS levels, etc. - so my apologies for writing a 5-egg review before fully testing - but if a problem comes up once I do, then I'll be sure to come back here w/ edits.

Cons: None that I've noticed as of yet as far as the device goes. Wouldn't have minded a rackmount conversion option/kit, given the slightly-wider desktop form factor, but that's about it. Price-wise, it was a bummer that Newegg was slightly higher on the single unit (meaning without buying the the discounted 3-switch package) than some other vendors, as the lower end of the spectrum makes it a competitive option with the closest alternatives from other manufacturers - namely a dumb PoE switch from D-Link circa 140 and then a much higher-priced smart PoE version with web interface by Cisco circa 220. If Newegg comes down on the single unit price, I will definitely pick up one more.

Other Thoughts: While I agree that a web interface would be more flexible & convenient for non-Windows users (I also split my time - between Win7Pro and dabbling as a Linux newb) - and that Netgear's odd strategy of creating a middle-ground between dumb & smart switch seems to be inconveniencing a greater % of customers than it ever should - it's still worth pointing out the obvious here, and that's that this is clearly NOT marketed as a smart switch or one that specifically has a web interface. Even if initial manufacturer warnings were lacking, everyone giving low ratings to this product line because they're disappointed by the extent of management options - for an unmanaged switch - need to exhibit a bit more honesty/candor in their account and admit they simply bought the wrong product. If you're on a Linux network, can't imagine it'd be too hard to either (1) find one single legacy disk with a Windows environment to install & use the app or (2) try installing it with Wine or onto a Windows VM...

3 out of 5 eggsGood product, bizarre management

Pros: One of very few small gigabit switches on the market with POE capability. Supports VLAN and is fanless. Lifetime warranty on the switch, power supply is a two year.

Cons: No web interface for management. You must install their Windows application (which requires WinPcap and Adobe Air to be installed) to manage the device. You almost be on the same subnet as the switch for the management software to find it. This switch would have been perfect had they used a normal web based management console or at least provided a telnet or ssh option.
