The 24-Port Gigabit Web Smart Switch with 2 Shared Mini-GBIC Slots (model TEG-240WS) delivers a 48Gbps switching capacity with managed layer 2 features at a reduced cost. Support for SNMP v1, 802.1X, STP, 802.1Q VLAN, QoS, IGMP snooping, Broadcast Storm Control and port Trunking provides a cost effective, scalable and secure backbone switch solution for SMB networks. SNMP support enables the switch to provide valuable status and event information, saving system administrators time and resources. Connect a fiber network to the shared Mini-GBIC slots. Access the Web-browser management interface and segment up to 256 Virtual Local Area Networks, manage network priority with 802.1p support and dedicate bandwidth with port-based Trunking.
Pros: Durable!! - I installed 2 of these switches in 2007 and both are still running strong 4 years later. They run flawlessly and have given me no problems. I am upgrading those two and two other switches I have with the TEG-448WS (48-port switches) which I hope run just as strong for just as long. Even though they are 4+ years old, I am moving them to another part of my network to upgrade a couple other unmanaged switches that are only 10/100.
Cons: None that I found
Other Thoughts: I don't really utilize them as "managed" switches, rather I purchased them because I like the GUI that allows me to monitor status and transmission statistics when desired. Helps in troubleshooting issues...which are few and far between. Sure they are a bit more than an unmanaged switch, but the difference is very small when amortized over the lifetime of the units.

Buggy firmware keeps this switch from being great value
Pros: Affordable managed switch.
Cons: Web interface does not set Link Speed/Duplex settings properly.
Other Thoughts: We have been using this switch on our test bench for some time. If left as a dumb switch it works great. However, who buys a managed switch to use it as an unmanaged switch. The web interface does have a serious bug that is more than a little obnoxious for network testing. When trying to manually set the port speed settings for a port, the interface returns an error saying

Appleshare Not Supported!
Pros: Good value for managed 24 port switch.
Cons: WARNING-APPLESHARE NOT SUPPORTED! Yes, the word "Mac" inside an Apple silhouette is on the box. Yes, Macintoshes can still communicate with Windows, Linux, and OS X servers. They can even connect to printers that support Apple's "bonjour" protocol. But I have 2 RIP servers that publish as Appletalk, and doing without them is not an option. So if you don't think you would find yourself in this predicament, this is a decent switch for the price. But if you do need Appleshare, look elsewhere!
Other Thoughts: I'm only giving it 2 eggs because I have purchased many switches in the past, and this is the first that I have purchased that left me in a bind. And it has a Mac "logo" on the package!
