4 out of 5 eggsDescent Switch

Pros: Easy to navigate web interface. It was easy to set up LACP to a NAS. It was a very simple operation to set up vlans. Honestly a very good gigabit managed switch for its price.

Cons: Not layer 3. Sometimes it will loose all configuration after loosing power and if there was an ip conflict then you have to restart it to work.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty good!!

Pros: Managed, cheap, all metal, no fans, silent, good interface, users regular PC power cable (has built-in power supply), has all the SNMP version levels, 1, 2c and v3. The v3 implementation is more robust than similarly priced 8 ports, such as the Netgear. Fairly reliable. I use this between my main server and the rest of the switches I have and I've never had to reset the switch because it wasn't transferring data.

Cons: Made in China, and every once in great while, the web GUI seems to not work and I have to reset it. That's happened maybe twice in the 6 months I've had it, but the switch operation itself doesn't seem to be affected. They just released a new firmware last month (Sep. 2013), so it might help this issue even though the release notes don't mention it. After applying the new firmware a little bit ago, it did reset ALL settings, even the IP. This may just be this particular upgrade and future upgrades may let you re-load your old firmware. The other thing I didn't like is that the default IP on this is (clearly marked on the bottom), which may conflict with a device at that IP if you use that subnet. I would rather it be DHCP'd initially, then I can change it to the static IP I want. And then SNMP is disabled by default. Once you get settings the way you want, it should be fine. The last thing is that you must go to the "Save Config" menu in the bottom left in order to have it actually save settings you already "Apply". Even though I wrote a lot here, all these are minor issues!

Other Thoughts: This is probably the cheapest 16 port managed switch you can find. I think I got it for around $130 when it was on a good sale. $130 for a managed 16 port switch. If I had to recommend a 16 port managed switch to anyone, this would be it.

2 out of 5 eggsPort not working

Pros: Could potentially be a good unit if it worked properly.

Cons: Just installed last week and port-1 without anything plugged in shows Pair A Open, Pair B Unknown, Pair C Open and Pair D shorted. This is without any cable plugged into it at all. Other, working ports display all pairs as Open. Even though there is an error it seems to work at 100MB but not 1000MB even though same device plugged into another port works perfectly well at 1000MB. I gave an unknown a chance and I guess it didn't work out. Guess I'll try an RMA (only if I can get a new unit otherwise, who knows if I'll get something better or worse).

Manufacturer Response:
