Netgear Gigabit 8 port managed switch,all metal case.
Small, silent and low power consumption - no fans.

Unlike other cheap switches, this one is managed !

This means you can setup VLANs, monitor port traffic,
throttle/limit specific ports, has QoS and supports port-mirroring.

or you could get some used enterprise class 48 port switches off the bay.

Noise? Power Consumption?

Used always cheaper than new ...

That's a good deal for a BIG rack switch - but they are HUGE, power hungry and NOISY:
(meant for a rack).

I wouldn't want a noisy rack switch in my house unless I could hide the noise in a cupboard or room of its own !

Funnily enough HP don't mention noise:
h18000.www1.hp.com/pro…TML
However, they do mention 190W which might include PoE (they only list one but that quickspec is for various switches). The also mention 228 BTU/hr for the version without PoE. Hate to see those crazy imperial units, but I guess they are thinking of air-conditioning. A convertor makes that around 67W. So not that bad if you're setting up a home lab I guess. But even with 'only' 67W it will have a fan and U1 means it is probably a 40mm howler.

EDIT: Opps, looked at the wrong part of that specs. That switch is the ProCurve Switch 2650 which is 100W and more importantly, it seems to be only BASE100 not BASE1000 although it has a gigabit trunk link. Specs are dated 2006.
So yes, could be useful for a home lab as it's a managed Layer 3 switch (in effect a router), but who needs 48 slow ports?

100 is fine for watching movies and sharing internet bandwidth

An HP 2650 is not a full layer 3 switch, it has basic layer 3 functionality. But it is a solid bit of kit - not quiet but I have 100s of them running 24/7 since 2006/7 and rarely have to do anything to maintain them.

Well that would do for the tv area, would need a few more for the rest of the house.

Nice little device, which camelcamelcamel shows to be near its lowest for price. Thank you for sharing this

Not voting hot as the price has remained £25 for at least 6 months as I bought 2 in that time.

Also no point in the average user buying a managed switch, may as well get the tplink for less if you need earthed sockets or the normal unmanaged netgear for under £15 when it is on offer (not checked the current price)

The only plus side for the average user is the lifetime warranty.

Bought a used netgear... GS724T or something like that. Passive cooling so it's quiet, claims to have Green credentials which I believe given the ports report a draw of 5.2W combined (not all in use)

This is admittedly after picking up a used managed switch where the fans had failed without me noticing, that one blew up one day after giving me weird errors, outside the eBay return period of course.

cold - Looks like 16 port to me oO
