Pros: This switch is being used in a video conferencing school and has been very reliable. We have every port filled and are using several 802.1Q vlans (Trunks and Native) and switch interconnects. It has been running this way for about 2 years. With minimal changes. We also have it connected to a UPS that gives it about 2 hours of battery backup time.
Cons: The Java based web interface is some what lacking in ease of use except if your using Internet Explorer. There is overlap in the text etc. That said it is navigate able even if you sometimes have to click the buttons more than once. A good backup solution is to use the ssh text console.
Other Thoughts: The web interface is very helpful and even works on Linux. So I was initially impressed. That said the issues need to be either cleaned up or fixed by eliminating the Java portion and using AJAX.
