Not one for everybody but this currently has a hefty discount making it a bit of a bargain if you're looking for something more than a basic switch/hub can offer. Seem to remember it being a bit cheaper sometime last summer but it's the lowest price I've seen on it for some time so I've used it as an opportunity to step up to a Gigabit network.
The PowerConnect 2716 offers tremendous value by providing an unmanaged switch that turns into a web-managed switch with the push of a button. These switches are ideal for businesses, branch offices, schools and retail establishments with smaller network environments.
