Good board but ipmi module has problems2/13/2013 12:03:30 PM

Pros: Lots of memory slots, solid running so far, remote power cycle and managment when it's running

Cons: management modules web interface hangs up periodically and need manual (on-site) intervention to reboot it Asus tech support unknowledgeable about the product

Overall Review: Can SSH into the ipmi module but the web access is hung. Very limited abilities when SSHed in and can't restart webserver or reboot module. This has happened a few times already.

Good for about 2 years2/9/2012 3:31:16 PM

Pros: 16 ports, nice cables (1 usb and display to each PC and one plug in end on the switch side). OSD is easy to configure and use. All in all good units in all categories except longevity.

Cons: They last about 2 - 3 years then die. Power supply went bad in 2 units after about 2 years. Not sure if it's designed to fail but that's 2 of 3 units that did it in the same time frame. The third is coming up on 18 months now, I hope it goes longer than the other 2 did. Either way they will not be replaced by more linkskey units. Replacing these in the racks every 2 years is just not worth it.

Overall Review: Too bad because they work well when they do work.

1 of 2 was bad5/17/2011 1:22:02 AM

Pros: Good capacity for price. Working well in Raid 1 (after the RMA of the 1 drive).

Cons: 1 of 2 originals was bad

Overall Review: Lots of quality problems with large capacity drives. They have such a high failure rate I might go back to a brick and mortar store for them. Shipping and the inconvenience make it almost not worth getting unless you are buying in large quantities.

Very Satisfied4/15/2008 7:35:12 AM

Pros: VLAN, 24 ports, good price. I have 3 of these and all work very well.

Cons: Not silent, web software not the best

Overall Review: After reading the other reviews I tested the VLAN and it works fine on all 3 of my GS24CSMART switches. I have one of these units in my office (in the closet) and don't notice it, next to the switch you can hear the fan thought. The web software is simple and a bit buggy (I've had to apply settings a couple times to get them to take) but the switches have been stable (no resetting or loss of connectivity).

Decent case but incomplete4/16/2007 9:58:33 AM

Pros: Solid chassis Decent backplane

Cons: Incomplete cables Top is held on poorly (cheap plastic clip) Poor tech support (indifferent but will sell you the needed cables at a nice markup).

Overall Review: I will not buy supermicro anymore since their cases do not seem to come with necessary cables (plan an extra 3-4days and $50 to get the necessary cables). Too bad since the general chassis build seems solid.

Sturdy built case but with problems4/16/2007 9:53:48 AM

Pros: Nice solid case Decent backplane

Cons: Horrible documentation Missing cables (it seems designed to make you purchase additional cables to use with most motherboards). Poor tech support (tech support is indifferent but will sell you the extension cables you need at a nice markup).

Overall Review: For $xxx delivered I expected a case that works out of the box. This is the second supermicro case I have purchased in 2 weeks both come with insufficient cables, both required an additional 3 days and $xx - $xx to get working. I will not be buying more supermicro cases. Too bad as the general build is decent.

No web-based management2/16/2006 10:13:34 AM

Pros: Cannot say as I cannot config the switch.

Cons: No Web-based management. Must load a windows-only (XP only?) app to manage the switch.

Overall Review: Newegg was of course great. They RMAed without hassle.
