Decent price for a 16 port, so with management available (although I don't know how much you can actually do) seems like a good deal

Well, whenever I've used a switch it's caused a rip in the space-interwebs continuum..
I love the marketing toss they add to their descriptions.

Internet Splitter - WTF?
Network monitoring - no
Traffic prioritization - not really
VLAN - yes

Decent for a 16 port, so I've purchased it.
I have a Netgear 8 port metal one and it is rock solid.
Need upgrade as using 4 ports to bond my new NAS so bit short on ports.
Like the idea of managing the ports and not significantly more expensive than non managed.

Are they really big because they have to fit into racks??

1U form factor, so bigger, but not hugely so.

It's the physicality of the ports that somewhat determine the size.

Yeah, but they can use up to 3 times the amount of power. This is a max of 11w, the ones on ebay range from 31-35w. This could cost between £27-£33 extra per year @ 15p per kwh.

Up to* being the operative word (s).

Power use is obviously a function of switching load.
Comparing the *maximum* draw of an enterprise-grade 24p switch (that likely has a switching capacity several times greater) to a consumer unit such as this isn't going to be particularly meaningful.

Thus the reason why I used the "operative" word "could". As we don't have any other figures to go by other than the provided power usage supplied by Netgear then this is as good of a measure as we're going to get thus why i used it. The point is, old enterprise gear is going to use more power than this switch. Thus what's the point in buying old enterprise gear when in a couple of years you would have made any savings back in power and thus it's false economy. No to mention, many of these old switches might not be getting any security updates anymore.

Yet it won't save money as it'll use more power over it's life, and it's a potential attack vector from a security point of view. Clutching at straws with that one.

You're massively exaggerating the differences in energy consumption; the cost of manufacturing new Vs reusing existing equipment will dwarf the lifetime energy consumption of either unit.

As for security concerns on a switch that'll in all likelihood sit behind a firewalled NAT switch, I feel it's you who's grasping at straws.

There is a simple test. Do you have an "enterprise" Netgear switch? Measure it's power and let us know. For reference I have a Netgear JGS524E 24 port managed switch in a box that has never been used (from HotUKDeals when it was £50 from Spain). I will measure the same setup and put this to bed as guaranteed the power usage will be at the very minimum double.

NAT firewall isn't an iron wall, all equipment can have vulnerabilities and the longer time has passed without updates the more issues you are opening yourself up to. As this is a managed network switch it is a risk using old equipment that hasn't been updated for a long time and one of the reasons business will have dumped them in the first place!

As for the eco stuff, that's just adding something in to divert attention away from the point. I value security much higher (for this equipment) than I do the impact of it's manufacturer, and so would anyone with items in their network that are worth protecting.

QoS doesn't prioritize traffic?

QoS doesn't prioritize traffic?


It does but how you apply it is of extreme importance. These switches only prioritize everything in a particular VLAN (they don't do advanced QoS), making it completely pointless if you don't have a router that supports 802.1Q.
