This review is from: HP JE006A#ABA Managed V1910-24G Gigabit Ethernet Switch
Pros: Standard "web-managed" switch. Standard options. Works as described. Regular "Web" or "Smart" management features - VLANs, etc.
Cons: -NOT- a true L2 "Managed" switch as described in the heading.
Other Thoughts: HP, but -not- a ProCurve which is a different class of switch. (aka Cisco (by Linksys) as opposed to a true Cisco)READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: Received two and both were DOA. Both locked up during Windows install then started throwing SMART errors in two different systems.
Other Thoughts: Must be a bad batch out there. I'm going back to the Black series in the future.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: Received two of these for two different system builds. In both cases, Windows either locked up during the install or immediately started reported errors after the install completed. Drives then started throwing SMART errors refererencing bad sectors and fail WD diags.
Seems to be a bad batch floating around.
Other Thoughts: I exclusively use WD drives in my builds. After 25 years in the business, I've found them to be more reliable than Seagate but each has their own occasional wicked stepchild appear occasionally. This appears to be WD's latest problem child.
I find it telling that WD's RMA process shows the availability of a replacement drive to be 'limited' which seems strange for a current product unless they are seeing an abnormal number of returns. I'm hoping to be lucky enough that they run out of replacement drives and send me a Black model instead.
