    Good for the price, but be aware of the LACP limitation.

    • Con:
      No LACP, only static aggregation!

    Good switch, certainly for the price, but Coolblue states that it supports dynamic link aggregation = LACP = 802.3ax = 802.1ax. It does NOT support this, and only supports static link aggregation = 802.3ad (draft). This may have implications if connecting to a NAS, as some require LACP. For instance, setting it up with my synology NAS as a static (XOR aggregation) seems to result in a more fluctuating throughput, even if it seems to handle multiple simultanuous file transfers better. I may endup using dual ethernet link in a simple failover (active/passive) setup and not bother ...

    Setup was a bit fiddly, took some time and restarts to configure itself properly, but going nicely since then. Oddly the switch is not visible in my routers client list, even if the configuration utility says it obtained a DHCP lease from the router. I recommend using the windows configuration utulity for the first setup, after that the web-based UI seems to work fine...

    All in all still good value for the little money this costs ...

    Ok if you want a basic switch, but there's cheaper.

    • Pros:
      Multiple administrative options
    • Pros:
      Enforces password change on first use. (I have encountered ones taht do not)
    • Pros:
      Fast with good flow control options
    • Con:
      Utterly unsuitable for any form of aggregated link
    • Con:
      Network-attached storage constantly drops
    • Con:
      Device visibility on network is spotty at best, sometimes the switch will appear, sometimes it's attached devices, often neither will

    As a basic switch, it's a good little package, but if buying for Link aggregation or high-availability NAS use - Don't It's not fit for purpose!
    On top of this, attempting to debug the issues via to the Netgear help forums provided an experience ranging from unhelpful or providing false hope to downright rude and abrasive.
    I'm very dissapointed in CoolBlue's aggregation of Static LAG under the description of "LACP" and doubly so with the experience of dealing with the netgear help community.

    Effectively, you're you're going to be doing anything outside of aggregation, this should work out for you, for large volume trunk lines, the savings aren't worth the cost in terms of wasted effort and downtime.
