Was going to hold out for one which supports POE
2nd hand enterprise kit is the way to go for high port numbers. Dirt cheap on the bay.
I've noticed that brand new switches are quite expensive. So had a look at 2nd hand ones. I picked a Cisco 24 port smart managed switch from eBay for £30. Worth a look.
I have been using one of these since January 2016 and it has been rock solid I paid the same price as this deal
True, but then you also lose two ports and need an extra power socket. This was a better solution for me. :)
Probably, according to the TP-LINK FAQ Q: Are TP-LINK AV200,AV500,AV600,AV1200 powerline adapters compatible with each other? Are TP-LINK PLC adapters compatible with adapters of other Brands？ A: TP-LINK AV200,AV500,AV600 powerline adapters adopte HomePlug AV Standard, so they are compatible with each other,AV1200 adopt HomePlug AV2,that is also backward compatible with HomePlug AV standard,which means TP-LINK AV200,AV500,AV600,AV1200 are all compatible with each other.However, the powerline rate will drop to lowest one’s rate when use different AV adapters together. For adapters of other brands,if they adopt the same standard,they should also be compatible with TP-LINK adapters.However,different brands’ products will have different ways to pair and configure,it might be much easier to use adapters from the same brand.
I have Tplink powerline adapter as well. Does it work together?
Brought these from Box website last week at £56.99. Still available at £59.99 on their website.
Just bought Av2000 tplink from Maplin and got £10 voucher. Already had one pair before so bought again for compatibility. Voted hot.
I have a couple of these - great switches. Yes they are only 10/100 but they have gigabit uplinks so you can link them plus have a spare gigabit port to add to other gigabit switches. I got mine so I can segment my network with Vlan tagging - my stepson is on his own segment and has no access to the main network, my CCTV cameras are isolated to another vlan and the house links to the workshop between the two switches. All the fast gigabit devices are on separate switches. These are a nice cheap way to get into managed switches and play with vlans.
The SFP uplinks had me interested, but 100Mbps kills it for me. Could be a good fit if you have lots of sensors or IoT devices perhaps? At home I have two Zyxel GS1900-24E fanless Gbit switches, bought for £68 last year. They have LACP [spec here] They run a little warm, but no problems at all. My core servers are linked with Mellanox 10Gb point to point as 10Gb switches are still too expensive.
Second that ... i have a good many to give away, if anyone is interested in paying postage.
A good price for a basic 10/100 switch My advice would be to pay extra and get a GB switch. 10/100 is really not worth installing these day.
Sure it's cheap, but have to ask yourself if it isn't worth spending £10 on gigabit vs £6 for 100mbit.
Broadband connection of over 100MB makes a 10/100 switch redundant. You can get gig switches for about £12.
Not sure either. £10 cheaper than Box is selling them on Amazon. Heat from me.
not sure why this is cold as it seems a great deal. I bought them from the same place, same price the other day. just waiting on them to turn up. they seem to perform as fast as the over 2000mbs plugs but are a lot cheaper. I had that same brand for my 500mbs plugs and they worked fine
Avoid Zyxel... have had three out of four Zyxel adapters fail on me just out of warranty and didn't replace. Tech support told me to use surge protectors, even though instructions clearly state you shouldn't to get proper performance. Since moved over to Tp-link and never looked back.
Agree the ZyXels support is good they replaced one of mine that failed without any problems. That said found the 500mbps range ones to be poor. Slow sync speeds even when plugged into the same double socket and even worse across the house. Was expecting much better considering the house/wiring is brand new
From what I've heard of ZyXel their connection tends to be more stable than tp link. Will have to do more research.
Heat added. Waiting for dual ethernet ports and pass through to drop a bit more personally but might be waiting a while
I use some older TP-Link ones myself between 200 & 500mpbs and they work great - had them a few years now. Only once in a blue moon do I need to unplug them for a few seconds due to an issue.
New model can be found here: https://www.box.co.uk/Zyxel_GS1920-24_24-port_GbE_Smart_Manage_1647528.html?gclid=Cj0KEQjwhpnGBRDKpY-My9rdutABEiQAWNcslFcpN-hb4_2QBVVzXCONkGWUAVrPVuM7QM8S6-RQKK0aAo6L8P8HAQ
When I bought mine a couple of weeks ago, they only had about 15 of them. I imagine this post may have cleared the rest out quickly. £49.99 certainly seemed like a clearance price.
Dammit, excellent price for the spec.
Nice price...if only it was available! Best bit is people continue to vote hot even though it's not available to buy. This was at 94 degrees when I initially posted!.
Saw this a couple of weeks ago after someone mentioned it. Not a bad little switch that will take a fibre module as well. I've the GS1900, also a GS1920 model out there.
"Discontinued product. Sorry but we are unable to obtain stock of this item. Please cancel and choose an alternative." Probably time to cancel?!
still cheaper than anywhere else if and when delivered, so still a good deal
delivery 3.49 too
I thought for a second we were using the same avatar. Close.
Expired. No more stock. Regards Flea
Totally agree, I have no problems with the Netgear 200mbps adapters or Trendnet 500 Mbps adapters I have. For somebody looking for high throughput on their Lan, 200mbps may not be enough, but is more than adequate for my needs. Also pass through is just a gimmick as far as I'm concerned and an unnecessary extra expense. Non pass through are much smaller and double plug adapters are cheap. I have also never had an issue with trailing sockets either.
Can't say those reviews look particularly helpful. I'm using a pair of BT AV200 powerline adapters and they are perfectly adequate for my needs and would no doubt be for at least 90% of the country.
One review: http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/review/powerline-adapters/d-link-av2-1000-hd-powerline-adapters-review-3623398/ "Both sets of D-Link Powerlines are basic. There’s no wireless function to add a new Wi-Fi hotspot in the second room (as some Powerlines boast) and there’s no pass-through power socket on the adapters either, so they will use up your wall sockets – don’t plug them into a power extender as this will slow them down. If you don’t have a ton of power sockets then you should consider Powerline adapters with these integrated pass-through sockets. D-Link is planning pass-through versions of both products." (How much are your power sockets worth? It looks like pass-through versions are around £50). This 2016 Wirecutter review says: "The...[list of adapters], D-Link Powerline AV2 1000 Gigabit Starter Kit (DHP-601AV) were fine but unexceptional last year; now they’re too slow." The 2000 Mbps items that they are slower than look to cost nearly £100: https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dcomputers&field-keywords=powerline+2000&rh=n%3A340831031%2Ck%3Apowerline+2000 For me, these are the previous generation's products, selling at a 50% discount. Probably still good enough though.
Good spot. And the D-Link DHP-509AV/B AV 500 HD PowerLine Starter Kit is just £14.48 new from Amazon (~£1 cheaper for Used - Very Good from the warehouse).
thanks I got a set from eBay, tp link 1200 with pass through for 46 quid delivered.
Back in stock @ £40.50 delivered, not as good a deal but still cheapest around.
thanks for the reply. will keep an eye open for any new deals.
Mine worked fine for about an hour - then lights went off completely on one unit! Dead - so returned for a refund! They wanted me to pay again for a replacement. Then wait till they received the faulty one for a refund - not like Amazon.
These were 44.99 as an Amazon lightning deal earlier today but it's expired now. It may come back around again
Sold out and price increased. :-(
These arrived this morning. Using extension sockets at both ends (although no surge protection) and very happy with the results! I had an old 2.4 Ghz wifi dongle on my desktop which maxed out at about 40mb/s (normally around 25-30). Tried two new 5ghz dongles with both being slower in 5ghz mode and in 2.4ghz were still slower than my old dongle. In the tests I've done this morning, getting a pretty solid 70mb/s download.
Out of stock now sadly. Heat added though, great deal!
it will have problems if the extension cable has surge protection built in.
Great, thank you !
Same. Email from customer service saying they don't have it in stock. Angry email being typed as we speak.
they cancelled mine !!
anyone got theirs?
Don't cancel it - my account showed that for a while but has been despatched today! If you cancel you will definitely lose out on the deal, if you stick with it you have a chance of it working out.
I have now expired the deal as it seems BT have run out of stock.
Plug to plug not plug to device.
link price shows £97.18
Anyone had a despatch email yet?
Gone now anyway.
Funny, it's like to work out your wages as what you earn + what you spend :D !
Was going to ask the same thing myself. Ordered on the 4th, heard nothing yet.
Anyone had theirs despatched yet?
Expired, £25 now.
good price . Though new models seem to support higher bandwidths now - claiming up to 1800 Mbps now? ZyXEL PLA5206 1000 Mbps Powerline Gigabit Ethernet Adapter - Twin Pack currenlty £29.95 on amazon. ZyXEL PLA5256 1000 Mbps Powerline is the "with AC Pass Through Adapter (Pack of 2)" £48.95 on amazon some historical 'best' prices: 2 x 5205 £58.98 on amazon Jan '14 2 x 5205 £30.00 ebuyer Jun '14 2 x 5205 £25.00 ebuyer Apr'16 Not sure of precise differences but benchmarks on 5206 suggest significant improvements: https://uk.hardware.info/reviews/5675/3/zyxel-pla5206-review-1000-mbps-power-line-performance
Why is this expired they are still available and in stock?
If your house wiring is good and the distance between points isn't too high in theory yes
Im getting a guarenteed 250mps fibre line put in soon. Would these give me full capacity ?
I have ordered these, so I will do a test and post the results
anyone got any real speed tests with these, i've had various powerline kit from 100/200/500/1000mbps and never got more than 85mbps real world in a new build
All i know is 1.0 GBPS is not the same as 1000Mbps
I may not have explained it correctly but getting 1.0GBPS
They are at the bottom
Does anyone know if the ports on the top or bottom?
Not perfect for a small home environment (still great and will handle any fileserver/streaming fine) as a smaller gbit switch will do. But for a small office, or if you dont need more than 100mbit, this is a fantastic price for a very soild peice of kit
That's considerably cheaper thank you. Had vandalism to my car so probably good to have for evidence should the opportunity arrive.
If you're going to buy a Cisco switch from Ebay and cost is a factor, I'd look at the 3750G rather than the 2960S. It's arguably a far superior switch and it'll cost you less. I wouldn't recommend learning on a live switch though if it's got cameras attached to it, unless they're not actually recording any important images :)
Thanks for the info and taking the time out to reply Stim! Appreciated!
Yeah unfortunately the gig + PoE combo tends to boost the price a little. Yes absolutely - plenty of labs out there - VIRL, GNS3 to name a couple of the more legit ones. There are others and it doesn't take too much trawling of the Internet to find them :)
