- Verified purchase
Hardware seems good but I got a very out of date firmware version with lots of bugs
- I would definitely recommend this switch for small business or a network savvy individual home user despite the issues mentioned below.
- If you don't know much about networks I would not recommend this. Possibly try an unmanaged switch eg Netgear GS116 (GS116AU) as they are plug and play requiring no config.
The hardware on this seems to be good and has a few useful network management tools. The the web interface is okay (once you can get to it) but the software (more importantly the firmware update process) is not good. Hopefully I just g...ot old stock and newer devices are being shipped with the latest firmware?! If your device has shipped with the latest firmware you should be fine and it is probably a good buy. If you are having issues with old firmware see bottom of this review for my setup notes. Good points: - It is fanless so absolutely silent! - I really like the click in wall mounting as it works well where I have installed it - It was relatively inexpensive for a managed Gigabit Ethernet switch - Web interface works reasonably well ONCE upto latest firmware! (Much better than the Windows Config util)
