  1. Size: 26 port Rackmount
    Extremely reliable, easy to deploy and simple to manage. Please note this review is for the netgear fs526t-200eus prosafe 24. With 26 ports (split 24 at up to 100 mbps and 2 at up to 1000 mbps) this switch is aimed at the business end of the market; i have deployed this in an office serving circa 15 desktops and a single server. To start with a summary, this is an excellent value switch that would be perfectly suited to offices with basic networking requirements and between 10 – 20 users. Any more than this you would want for more options and any fewer, there are more basic switches that will likely service your needs. All in all great value with lots of configuration options for the price. In the box you get:================-1 x switch unit-1 x rack mount kit-rubber foot pads-power cord-cd with management software (only needed if wanting to manage on a local pc – personally i would recommend the web interface instead for convenience)-instructionsset up is very easy and for a basic user you could just ‘plug and play’ with this switch and use the switch’s default setting; but more advanced users may want to install the software included or via the web interface, to get more from the switch and be able to configure it more to your own networking needs. Personally i always prefer the convenience of the web interface since it means you can manage your switch from any location (even remotely if ever required). By configuring your switch you can make it even smarter and i would really recommend investing time in this once your switch is up and running, in the interface you can configure ports, activate power saving modes, set port priorities, and set up vlan’s if required. Note of the 26 ports on the switch, the 2 that support 1000 mbps data transfer also have an ‘auto uplink’ feature, which means they automatically sense if the connection should be a ‘normal’ connection – e.

    At least 1 port faulty – not worth the hassle of returning – luckily not all 24 were needed.
