This is I think a good price for a 24 port fanless switch.Rackmountable or desktop

Although it says unmanaged it is manageable to some extent via it's web interface or using a utility which can be obtained from tp-link. However it is 'smart' so it's prefectly capable of managing itself. The reason I'm mentioning this is that a fully managed switch could cost £200 or more.

This model is cheaper?
Unmanaged Switch
You are not able to configure the unmanaged switch because it doesn’t support any configuration interface or options. It is plug-and-play, so you only need to connect your computer or other network devices to the unmanaged switch directly. Therefore, if you do not need any L2 features, but only need to extend the number of Ethernet ports, unmanaged switch is the right switch for you.

Easy Smart Switch
You can use Utility or Web interface (Web only for TL-SG1016DE and TL-SG1024DE) to manage easy smart switch and configure basic settings, such as VLAN, QoS and a few L2 features like LAG, IGMP Snooping and Port Mirroring. If there are no advanced applications needed, easy smart switch should be the best choice for you. Normally, easy smart switch will be found in the home, SOHO or small business.

This is the TL-SG1024D so not "manageable to some extent via it's web interface" .

Yes, well, however if you look at some of the comments on the Amazon page for this device, they talk about V1-V3 of the switches firmare and V2-V3 does apparently allow management 'to some extent' (my quote)
Amazon reviews are often unreliable, sometimes it's obvious they are talking about a completely different model.
I haven't bought this switch I'm afraid, but I did buy a fully managed 24 port switch from a previous post here FWIW
YMMV

As I said anyway it's not a bad price for a 24 port fanless gigbit switch with lifetime warranty

Read the small print - the lifetime warranty is the product life cycle, which is usually 2 years. Warranty for products ends five years after the product is listed as "End of Life".<-- this only applies to certain products, I don't think this applies here.
Managed switches are not generally found at this price point and this is NOT a managed switch:
tp-link.com/uk/…24d/
Yes it's a good price, personally for a home network I would use 4 port or 8 port switches, that way I only loose 4(3) or 8(7) devices when a switch fails rather than 24(23)...
4 x 8 port switches work out cheaper and in a home network with <24 ports you don't need a managed switch or have to worry about cascading switches. I have a lot of Cisco kit and had to turn it off and use fanless switches instead, saved me a lot of configuration as well (I had the Xboxes in a VLAN, but that was because I had more than 300 IP addresses) ...

yep, very typical of most 'life time' warranties - sounds great but in reality not likely to be more than a couple of years, which isn't bad, but far far short of a lifetime in most peoples eyes.... at least TP Link specify what their idea is of a lifetime.

Well, I have never had the network part of a switch fail, And personally, I wouldn't want to cascade four switches, given that the Internet and it's access is the most important reason for the network and that being the weakest link. There may be other reasons why a single switch may be preferable: there may be some media servers on the network. as NASes for backup for instance.If you use a single switch, then you gain another three ports. if there are games machines on the network then they need good access for playing. Xbox one is particularly difficult on a slow netwrk because updates are much larger than Xbox 360 and updates to the games are much larger.
I haven't looked into the lifetime warranty, 3com used to offer that for many years, and who is to say whether TP will still be here in even five years anyway.
Ideally I would like to set up a MS network with roaming profiles but I don't think any normal family would tolerate that! Much better for backup! But much more vulnerable.
Having more ports means less wireless.

Dude, no offence, but you do not appear to know what you are talking about. Just because you haven't had one fail does not mean they don't (why else is the warranty period so short?). Also 3Com got bought by HP back in 2010.
I did point out for a home network I personally use cascaded switches, there is no significant performance impact (I am comparing an 8 port Netgear gigabit switch to a Cisco 24 port S5900).
I currently have 5 Xbox ones (and I just bought 5 LIVE accounts) all connected to the same LAN, they all ran the Fortnite update just fine and we had a 5 player team match up without any ping issues.
Your comments make no sense? Who is to say any business will be here in 5 years? Both Netgear & TP have been around for about 25 years, 3Com was around for 31 years before it got bought by HP and not longer exists as a separate entity...
As for a MS network with roaming profiles you do know you can set it up for free (for 12 months) - it's called Azure . Also if your kids are at school within the UK they can claim free MS licenses which also provide 1Tb of MS cloud storage: ids.c2kschools.net/ - and guess what? You can link those accounts to the machine they log into, helps with homework & the like (most C2K schools have signed up to SeeSaw which allows the sharing of classroom activities as well)

I’m just doing my network now while we have building work ongoing. I’m running 4 Cat6 cables to each room and they are soon eaten up. Each room has console, TV, Sky Box, and Sonos beam so that’s all 4 used in 3 rooms then further ports for Mac etc. I’ll have 20 in use initially and mine is a small network.

Your very lucky. Ive managed to run 1 cable to my Lounge but with a house on 4 floors ive got no chance getting anywhere else. I much prefer cable but will have to make do.
Any recommendations for a 16/24 port managed switch for home use? I mainly want port mirroring, VLAN and SPF ports.

The best I could see was this which is the big brother if the one above.

You can get External Grade Ethernet Cable [on a reel] that is weatherproof, you will need to make up your own cables.
I have multiple cable runs outside that have been in the usual wet weather 'up north' in the UK for at least 7 years and had no problems.
Remember not to bend it too tightly and be careful when you fix it to the walls (Hammers and tight bends break the wires !!! ]

I have more than 4 going into certain rooms, the study for example for computer and printer.

But I'm not sure what else I might need in the future in each room. Sonos Beam for example in 3 rooms doesn't really need a Cat6 cable but it may as well for now.

After TV, Sky box (going to upgrade to Q at some point), console I'm not sure there would be anything else I;d need that couldn't use wi-fi.

I know cable is cheapish, but I'm going to be running 100's of meters of the stuff so need to keep costs down somewhere.

I hear you - however if you buy 2 x 305 reels you may as well use it all up! Also I would recommend you purchase your patch leads from CPC (as they seem to be the cheapest UK source @ £60/reel delivered) - just make sure they are the copper ones (avoid CCA!).
The premium for Cat 6 isn't worth it - there is no future proofing (10GBASE-T is only supported in 55m runs with Cat6) and it can accommodate gigabit just as well as Cat5e. So unless you are going to use 10GBASE-T there really isn't any point other than bragging rights.


Of course you could always just run 4 points and add a switch if you need more in the future...

Its a Dowshu and it was actually used to record a royal visit - I got it at the right price at my local auction. They won't support me though as I am not the original owner, so no resale value (the software license is over £30k apparently), so I thought I may as well wire it up and make the use of it!
