ZyXEL GS1900-24 10/100/1000Mbps 24-Port Gigabit Smart Managed Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Switching just fine so far 09/06/2015

This review is from: ZyXEL GS1900-24 10/100/1000Mbps 24-Port Gigabit Smart Managed Switch

Pros: Solid build, 10 GBE uplink ports, managed switch, runs cool. Web based interface. Initial setup is from PC directly to witch unless your network IP's are the same class.

Cons: None so far, has run 24x7 for 3 weeks now in 75 - 85 degree temps without any issues of disconnections.

Other Thoughts: Complete manual is contained within the firmware of the switch. Firmware can be upgraded. I added an 8 port POE injector to run IP cams and the switch has no issues.
I think this switch with features along with an POE injector can save a lot of money over the other built-in Switch/POE in options out there.

ZyXEL GS1900-24 10/100/1000Mbps 24-Port Gigabit Smart Managed Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is an update to my prior review. I purchased an 8 port POE injector to run some IP cameras through this switch. So, then connection comes out of the switch into the LAN side of the injection which has a 48V DC power supply and then the POE port ethernet cable goes into the IP camera. The camera was powered and the switch did not even hiccup. All functions of the switch remained intact. A nice addition to my 24 port managed switch with build it POE.

Cons: None, runs cool to the touch.

ZyXEL 600 Mbps Powerline AV2 AV600 Gigabit Pass-Thru Adapter, Starter Kit - 2 Units (PLA5215KIT), up to 600Mbps
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Simple setup, works very well and frees up your wireless bandwidth for cell phones and tablets.
I have been using the 500 mbs Zyxel units for the past four years. None have ever failed. Throughput definitely depends on the home's age and wiring.
I am in a 15 year old home now. I unplugged my 500 mbs unit connected to my router and plugged in this new unit. It was plug and play giving me three greens meaning an over 80 mb/sec connection to my older units. Compatibility was flawless. Next I replaced an older unit with one of these connected to an 8 port GB unmanaged switch. This switch is carrying an IP camera at 30 FPS HD resolution and streaming MLB.TV in HD flawlessly. Again, it was plug and play, a good connection and more stable than wireless 2.4 or 5 ghz bands.

Cons: None that I know of, but I do not think you will get 600 MBS. But you can be happy with over 80 plus freeing up your router's wireless throughput, get them.

Other Thoughts: My internet connection at my router with speedtest is 115 mbs down, 15 mbs up. Connected to my PC on the switch as described above with 2 IP cameras also going, I was able to measure 31 MB/sec down and 11 MB/sec up with this adapter. That is more than enough for handling streaming video, netflix, gaming etc. And the throughput is always more stable than wifi.
So, for the price, these are great in my opinion.
