    Great, reliable and value for money. Great, reliable and value for money. If you are here you will be hitting the switching throughput, noise levels, port speeds or port density of your existing switches. This is a good product for small business, students and homes. Gigabit has become quite standard and with 150mbps fibre broadband, powerline technology and 802. 11ac wifi you will find 100 mbps ports become the bottleneck in your network. You can be certain of having lots of ports to play with on this switch with the added benefits of what a managed switch can offer and without the complexity of needing to know how to programme the switch in code. This is a fanless switch and so is excellent for home and office use. It is also great on keeping the bills down by being clever on which ports it keeps active and generally being not energy inefficient. Security and management features are supported as well as performance features such as jumbo frames and link aggregation (which will be handy for anyone looking at improving performance and connectivity to their personal cloud storage and nas systems).

      ‘little bit more pricey than i’d like. ‘little bit more pricey than i’d like. I’m relieved that it has a web interface. There is also a windows based app available for managing multiple devices. I am still unsure which changes require the save button at the top left to be used, so i tap it all the time.

    Works well but the web interface isn’t that nice. One of the few 8 port fanless poe switches.

      Excellent for the price, my unit runs a bunch of poe wireless routers spread over an 18th century london house – now offices. Gave up on vlan’s -not because of this device but the £1000+ hp switch that needs £2k+ worth of training just to understand. 10 ports is a great idea when 8 are just not quite enough.

    Lots of features at a budget price. Due to a project i was working on i needed to be able to have machines with multiple network cards connected to different vlans and also trunk multiple vlans down a single port. It was all possible and relatively simple with this switch. I haven’t tried the other features such as qos so couldn’t comment on those.

    I’ve had one of these installed in our home office for about 9 months now, replacing a ‘consumer’ 8-way switch which had run out of ports. Installation is uncomplicated, it has a web-form based control interface which you can drive from any browser, so there’s no software to install. The only real setup to do is giving it an ip address (assuming the default isn’t what you want), then it’s ready to go as a simple 10/100/1g switch. You can then turn on additional settings (packet filtering, vlan, etc) as required. I’m pleased to report that in my setting it’s performed flawlessly since it was first turned on; i’m not doing anything particularly esoteric with it, but it’s never crashed or needed fiddling with. Importantly (for me) it’s silent in operation and doesn’t use a lot of electricity (under 10 watts), so doesn’t get hot. One thing to note – this isn’t the version which does power-over-ethernet; that’s the -28p model. Update 27/7/14: if you’re curious as to what a managed switch will let you do, i’m using these features:(a) traffic segmentation, which lets you control which destinations traffic arriving at a particular port can be sent to. So, i have a ‘guest’ wi-fi access point; its port can talk to the internet gateway, but not any other machines (e.

      First class layer 2 gb switch. Does what it states on the tin, i work in an it environment and this switch proved reliable and easy to use for the job it was required to do. Plug in and connect your devices to it, simple as that.

    Works a treat straight from the box. It’s improved the speed of the network too even though our old cables are cat5.
