    Wonderful unit

    Posted

    I upgraded to this unit after I outgrew the 8-port gigabit switch I had. This unit runs great, and has lots of room for me to grow. I would recommend this to anyone that needs more than 8 ports for their home/office and need them to be GigaBit. One thing to keep in mind though, because it is gigabit and does have 24 ports on it, it does have a pretty powerful CPU. As a result it does have a fan, but this device belongs in a server room or telco closet anyways, not on your desk. Its not really loud, but its got a high pitch fan, where as a PC has a larger lower pitched fan. Just something to consider.

    I recently had our house wired with 2 cat6 drops in each room (one for computer, one for video use) and had all cables run to a central closet. I mounted this switch on the closet wall using angle brackets and connected all of the cat6 cables to it. There were a few unused ports that I used to connect some network drives to. I currently have 4 computer systems, 4 video systems, and 6 network drives connected to the switch and all systems are running with no problems or interference. The switch operates flawlessly and is unmanaged (i.e. doesn't require any confusing setup - just plug it in and it works). I manage all of my computers/network devices from one location and regularly have multiple screen sharing sessions going simultaneously and have never experienced any slowdown or hiccups on any connection. It's a very good switch for my situation.

    I bought this to replace a 16 port switch that had run out of ports. I have these same units in use elsewhere and the work fine.

    I have used my fair share of switches over the year. From enterprise class to basic dumb hub/consumer switches. This is a high end unmanaged switch and is perfect for my needs. I have approximately 30 devices on my network, about half of them are wired with a mix of gigabit and normal fast Ethernet. I see no performance problems with using this switch. My network has a bunch of streaming video services as well as PlayStation 4 console, plus most importantly I have a special datafeed for day trading futures. This switch can handle all of this without bogging down. Quite pleased.

    Ease of installation and speed of file transfer between computers. I have deployed in a small office with 6 computers and file transfer between the PC is at least 110mbs. Easy to pick-up at a local Best Buy when you are in need and time crunch.

    I've used these products before and for the small office that need Gigabit speed it does the trick. They are user friendly and easy to install.

    Works but noisy

    This switch works fine, but really shouldn't be used in a home office unless you can isolate it in a ventilated/cooled closet somewhere. It's really, really noisy. I need a 24 port gigabit switch though but I'm not sure if they all require this type of fan to properly cool. A poor choice on my part.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
