3 out of 5 eggsDoes what it's supposed to, but oh so very very loud...

Pros: Excellent price for a 10GBE switch. Thus far, works as advertised.

Cons: For a SOHO where setting up in a separate room isn't an option, the noise from this switch is abominable. The fans are just ridiculously loud. If I can't find suitable replacement fans that operate at a much lower dBA rating, I'm reluctantly going to have to sell this device.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: Very inexpensive by 10 GBE standards and no setup required. Worked with our generic DAC cable and generic cat 7 and 6a cables. Worked with Intel and HP NICs. Not loud.

Cons: Only 2 SFP+ ports

Other Thoughts: Other 10 GBE switches have elaborate capabilities beyond just passing packets to the right port. They have security features, can route, do BGP, etc. We didn't need any of that and are fine not to have it. This worked as a top of rack switch without any setup at all and cost about 85% less than any alternative.

5 out of 5 eggsLoud but goof

Pros: Considering the price, you really can't complain to get 10 Gb. Used this for a SQL Server cluster and wanted 10 Gb for the shared storage interface.

Cons: Are the fans loud? Yes, insanely so actually. I am looking at popping this thing open and seeing if I can get some fans of the same CFM but lower operating DB... but even then, it's not big deal to me. It's rack mounted in a dedicated server room, so the noise is isolated anyways. I wouldn't recommend this if you want to be working next to it or anything.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far, Good Switch

Pros: 10GbE Managed Switch at an affordable price.

Cons: None as of yet

Other Thoughts: I'm not having the same issue with the fan noise. Though, the 2 switches are in a small server room, at the top of the rack, right next to the A/C unit. I'm using these as ethernet based NAS switches for my 3 server host virtual infrastructure. I just upgraded from 2 x Gigabit TrendNet unmanaged switches that were solid, but I have now reached the point where I needed more speed and thought I'd give these a whirl.

1 out of 5 eggsWow. L O U D

Pros: Didn't keep it long enough to find any.

Cons: This is advertised as Netgear's entry to low priced 10Gb office environment. Yeah unless you get the noise down 2+ orders of magnitude that isn't going to happen. We tried this in a noise canceling enclosure and it was still way too loud if you're within 50 feet.
