Does anyone have experience with these switches? They seemed to be pretty cheap, but at the same time offer basic L3 management abilities and are stackable. They wont have some more advanced features I am sure, but for the price they seem hard to beat.

Anyone use these before?

they are a good switch for the price.  The only issue I have with them is the web interface is not the most intuitive in the world.  Also I do not like that you have to jump back and forth between the web interface and the command line type interface but once you get one set up you can export the config and push it to all your others.

For the price getting 4 SFP, and a GIG switch it's great.  I just wish it was  POE, but I added a few POE GIG injectors where I needed them and it was good to go.

yes, and like I said it's not one of those easy to use features.

Look at page 43

it also will take some tweaking to make it work, but like you said can't beat the price.

Yeah,  I just have a few servers that arent pushing any performance evenlopes, but wanted stacking and L3 switch. I could get one of these for a few hundred or a Catalyst for a few thousand.

Thanks
