5 out of 5 eggsUnparalled Quality & Stability

Pros: Switch hardware is simple and straightforward.
Web interface is intuitive and appears as effective as CLI.
5 year hardware warranty (never needed it - 3 years in).

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This switch has operated with 22 connections for 3 years without requiring any configuration modifications, reboots, et cetera. I put this in my home with two wireless PoE access points, several servers with various network configurations and everything that goes with a 5 person family joined to a small business. I've never had a single hiccup from this device. Any time I upgraded the firmware (which was usually out of boredom) everything just continued to work.

This switch has one of the highest throughput in it's class. I've never been able to congest the traffic even while simultaneously sending huge files repetitively for the purpose of stress testing.

Switch never crashed, never entered any kind of a limp mode, and survived power outages without issue.

I would recommend the SG300 series switches, and the 28 Port PoE switch in particular, to anyone. I have not one complaint about owning or operating this appliance.

1 out of 5 eggsNot reliable at all

Pros: Unfortunately, the unit doesn't work so it negates the pros that would otherwise be: number of ports, software, and price.

Cons: Multiple ports fail. The port failure has made it appear that our entire system fails and has been a major embarrassment for out company. It has been installed for one week and we began to notice problems the second day. We gave it time and worked with it. But after a week, it is only getting worse with more ports failing. Since it took time to install, it is more than 30 days from our purchase and it appears we cannot return to New Egg now. After writing this I am following up with NE and Cisco to see what options are. Right now I would not recommend this switch at all if you need it in a reliable, professional installation.

Other Thoughts: Like so many things in life, this switch would be a good idea - if it worked.

2 out of 5 eggsNice, but watch out!

Pros: I would give this switch 5 stars except for a couple of problems -- one very serious. I own three SG300 switches and all have the same problem.

In L3 mode, the GUI gets "out of sync" making creating ACLs very difficult. But the greatest problem is with how flimsy the Ethernet jacks are. I use Cat-6 cable because some of my runs are long. The jacks on these switches have a very thin tin-like outer guide that, with any use at all, becomes deformed and the cables to not stay plugged in properly. A real pain.

If you use Cat-5 cable (thinner, less rigid), or if you use cable management and cable the switch once and never touch it again, this is not a problem. But the one I use on a bench only has four or five out of 28 ports that still work well.

Cons: Construction is too flimsy. Ethernet jacks deform very easily making the ports unusable.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for near-enterprise-class performance and construction, don't buy these switches.

5 out of 5 eggsSG300's are rock solid

Pros: We use the SG300 series switches from Cisco for Video Distribution and for out networking systems. I have about 30 SG300 switches in the field without a single problem. It's as noisy as any other POE switch, which doesn't bother me, since mine are always in a rack away from people. New Egg also offers the best price on this switch. I can order direct from Cisco, but I pay more.

Cons: It can be noisy if it is not placed somewhere remote.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Piece of Hardware!

Pros: PoE works with Cisco 7960 IP phones (pre-standard), 24 Gig Ports w/PoE, Enerygy Efficient, Not too loud, Looks/Feels like high-quality...

Cons: Web Interface is cumbersome/cluttered, with many popup windows...

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my small office. I am using it for data and voice, computers need gig ethernet, phones are Cisco 7960 which need pre-standard PoE output. So far I really like it and it seems perfect for my small office! THANKS for a great product Cisco, and thanks NEWegg for carrying it

3 out of 5 eggsSG300-28P

Pros: Hardware/software seems pretty complete, has lots of options for those needing them if they work, latest releases of software allows configuration from cli that is close to Cisco IOS, makes it easy for anyone familiar with Cisco devices. Priced is very competitive..

Cons: Software, while it contains a lot of features that you one can use if needed, they need to work in order to be useful. The main bug that I am dealing with now is LLDP comnpatability with third party phones. One of the main reasons you get this switch with POE is for a voice deployment, one of the things you would like to work is LLDP so it can tell the phone which vlan to come up in..currently in the latest version and the prior version this is not working with an Avaya 9600 series phone...BIG Disappoitment since I now have to use DHCP Options, I have an open case...:(

Other Thoughts: I'm sure it works fine with Cisco phones but LLDP is the industry standard and should just work...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Switch with a few quirks

Pros: I Bought this to replace a Netgear GS724TP (see my review). This switch is a dream compared to the Netgear. This is my first experience with the new Cisco Small Business Product line and I have to say I am impressed. This switch is FAST and easy to set up. You can get a simple or complex as you want with it. The GUI is great but does pop up windows all the time which if you don't realize you could leave one open which will stop you from proceeding. Plus you get the added bonus of 4 extra ports but keep in mind that Ports 25 through 28 are NOT POE. The POE on this switch works great.

Cons: The only Con that I can really come up with is that the port layout is a little odd. Every other switch I have ever dealt with that has 2 rows of ports the top row is the Odd Numbered Ports and the bottom is the Even ones. Well for some reason the first 24 ports are sequential on the top row (1-12) then the bottom row (13-24) and to make it even more interesting Ports 25-28 are in the old Odd / Even configuration. Not sure why but certainly threw me for a loop at first. The other nitpick thing would be that when you make any changes you have to "Save" the configuration otherwise they will be lost if / when you reboot. I know this is common for enterprise switches but not for home / business but it does remind you with a flashing Save icon at the top of the screen when changes need to be saved. The Interface is unlike any I've seen before so it did have a bit of a learning curve to find things. If you are going to use SNMP you have to Enable it as it is disabled by default.

Other Thoughts: This switch went in to our network with almost no fuss whatsoever. We incorporated it with Dell, Netgear and 3Com / HP Equipment. The VLAN Set up was a breeze and worked perfectly. Setting up the LAG Groups took a little messing around but once you figure out things it was simple.

5 out of 5 eggsPoE

Pros: Great Switch, as good as the ESW 540

Cons: No Pre-Standard PoE Support, so your old 7940 Cisco Phones will not work over PoE.

Other Thoughts: Great Price.
