    Nice review. One note. I have been looking at this exact switch and also the 16 port version. I have found some comments on Newegg that suggest that some of the newer versions do not include the fan. Users that did get the one with the fan also said it was noisy. In fact, one use even disabled the fan after reading those reivews.

    How as it been since you purchased it back in March? Any Problems? I have seen on some other switches a propensity for ports to fail. Thanks,

    • No problems so far. It is still noisy, and I don’t dare disable the fan in case it is needed. However, I don’t hear it because the switch is in a media box, in my storage room.

        Thanks for the comeback. As I was doing some more research, I came across the Dell PowerConnect 2816, which is a managed switch for around $209. Any thoughts on Dell switches. I have used their computers at work, but none of their networking products. For that we have Froundry switches.

        • Unfortunately, I don’t have any experience with Dell switches. I am jealous that you are getting a managed switch. I have always wanted one, but they have been more than my budget would allow.
