2 out of 5 eggsAlso died after 3 years

This review is from: ZyXEL GS1100-16 Unmanaged 16 Port Unmanaged Gigabit Rackmount Switch

Pros: Works great while it lasted

Cons: Failed after 3 years. Power light blinks, all ports failed. Seems like a failed capacitor.

2 out of 5 eggsFailure after 4 years

This review is from: ZyXEL GS1100-16 Unmanaged 16 Port Unmanaged Gigabit Rackmount Switch

Pros: Worked fine while it worked. At the time, it was one of the most inexpensive 16 port Gig routers around.
No fan. silent. And I've had others that I've had to tear into to replace bad fans.
No wall wart (which also might be a con in terms of heat inside the fanless unit).

Cons: Failure after 4 years.
Activity Lights only show "activity". No indication of link speed.
No Fan. I wonder if that translates into hotter and early component failure.

1 out of 5 eggsDied after 3 years

This review is from: ZyXEL GS1100-16 Unmanaged 16 Port Unmanaged Gigabit Rackmount Switch

Pros: small, quiet, rack mount, affordable

Cons: The unit completely died after 3 years. The warranty is only 2 years so out and too expensive to fix. I have other switches that lasted over 10 years.
So I believe the reliability is no good.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat switch

This review is from: ZyXEL GS1100-16 Unmanaged 16 Port Unmanaged Gigabit Rackmount Switch

Pros: Does everything they say it does. Haven't had a single performance problem in the 8 months of constant up-time.

Cons: Didn't come with mounting screws for a rack.

Other Thoughts: I got this switch because my router only had 3 LAN ports on it and I picked up 2 new computers and a dual LAN server. I've had everything running on it without issue since I got it. It fit perfectly in my server rack.

The only thing I was dissappointed with is that it didn't come with rack mounting hardware. I guess in a business environment you would probably buy a large package of cage nuts and screws, but I didn't want to drop the money on that for this one item. Not removing an egg because I think my situation is not the norm.

4 out of 5 eggsInteresting comments...

This review is from: ZyXEL GS1100-16 Unmanaged 16 Port Unmanaged Gigabit Rackmount Switch

Pros: Not moving parts so silent. Negotiates fastest speeds reliably. Compact yet still still rack mountable.

Cons: Not really a con as much as a user problem, but it has a button on the front for 802.3az functionality. I have found buttons to disqualify any product from being idiot-proof. Eliminate any buttons to keep this working as intended. Otherwise its the first thing that gets punched when a problem arises.

Other Thoughts: Some areas of my company tend to use left over hardware, some that is even from the late 90's. These guys if they drop a port won't replace a switch, they will daisy chain another switch to it. A troubleshooters nightmare. Being the guy they call when they can't figure it out what's happening, I won't even try to support their old Bay Network stuff still in production. I bought a small supply of these to hand out when they complain of problems. Once they replace their old stuff, then I will help them.

These are NOT routers despite some of the reviews. Also, since there are no fans, you can't put these is as harsh of an environment before they overheat. You need A/C! Not saying that's the problem of the other reviewers, but just something to be aware of.
