Fiber only — RJ45 SFP+ modules won’t workOne could argue that my dissatisfaction is largely my own fault — I didn’t do enough research, instead buying this product based solely on the Amazon listing. It wasn’t until I encountered problems that I visited TP-Link’s website and discovered that *there* they prominently label this a FIBER switch (?!). Got any Ethernet in your network? Don’t buy this switch.Perhaps I was ignorant. I had never encountered networking equipment that accepted fiber SFP+ modules but not RJ45 SFP+ modules. (I assume it relates to power & heat management.) All I know is it was useless for my mixed network.But maybe I’m being too self-critical — why isn’t the term “fiber switch” anywhere in the product details on this page, like it is on TP-Link’s website? Wouldn’t that be relevant to many people? Is it perhaps because the switch is non-returnable unless it arrives broken?

Worked well for mePut it in a secondary data center network after a failure required replacement, and needed something affordable in a hurry. Was easy to setup and get access. Works great for the price when you need 10GbE SPF+ ports, but not super demanding needs. Didn’t stress test it but it has been pushing everything I’ve thrown at it (1Gbps WAN link).But a few notes to save someone some time….1) it doesn’t auto detect 1G/10G so you need another switch to use temporarily which supports 10 & 1 GbE, if you PC is not 10GbE, do you can access the GUI. It can be done via the USB console cable and CLI, but just plugging into another switch makes it simple.2) if setting up VLANS and don’t want management on some ports, be sure to remove the main VLAN from those ports. Obvious if you do network management but found out less than obvious to do.3) had a lot of difficulty getting link to a Cisco router to come up. It was set for 1Gbps/Full Duplex, like the Cisco interface. Eventually figured out I had to change to auto negotiate for duplex. Immediately came up – in full duplex. LolOnly complaint I have was that I couldn’t find a way to change the Admin GUI to a different VLAN,to avoid using the base VLAN (1). But certainly not a deal breaker for this application.Don’t think I’d put it on a primary role per se, but in our secondary/DR site it provides great cost/ benefit, I think.
Really nice 10 Gb switch for a home lab or small business environment.For the money its pretty hard to beat this switch if you need something for 10Gb connectivity. The cost per port is dirt cheap. Pair it with some cheap twinax cabling and you got a very cost effective 10 Gb network. This switch is fully managed which can be hard to find at this price point. I was very pleasantly surprised to see that it has a “Cisco-like” CLI and have a decent web interface as well. Warranty seems pretty good and the documentation is actually very good. The CLI manual was over a 1000 pages. Who would think anyone would write that kind of manual for a ~$200 switch. If I have one complaint about this switch it would be that it doesnt include an out-of-band ethernet-based management port on it. I would definitely recommend this switch to any business who wasn’t concerned about buying Cisco or some other expensive big brand networking gear. For a home lab its pretty hard to touch this switch in terms of costs, ports, and speed. I use it to connect up my home lab servers and NAS that have SFP+ ports on them.

Amazing Core SwitchGot this as a core switch upgrade in my home network. As a career-long IT engineer and video producer I needed something that I could set up on MY terms, and as I’m pending disability due to spinal issues, I needed something that wouldn’t break the bank.This switch adopted FLAWLESSLY into my Omada controller and has all the speed to keep my editing rig going!Best Bang for the Buck, if you ask me!
A great switch for a small office or home office.I’m using this switch to connect a couple of NAS devices to my home network. The management features are pretty easy to use. It’s definitely a great value for the money.
CheapLike the price. Don’t know dislikes yer.

Worked perfect 1G (RJ45) and 10GI bought this switch and set it up with one Cisco 30-1421-01 SFP-GE-T EXT 1000BASE-T SFP transceiver and several 10G DAC and Fiber SFP+ transceivers. You can buy the 1G SFP on Ebay for $5-10 each in lots of 5-10. Everything works perfectly. I read in another review that the user was having bad performance transmitting to the 1G port from 10G devices, but this is solved by going into the configuration then L2 features and selecting flow control for all of the ports. I had to do the same thing with my Mikrotik and Unifi 10G switches. Also, I had to set the 1G port speed manually in the L2 settings, it would not auto negotiate. I am using all Mellanox ConnectX-3 NICs. I even installed one in a PCIE x1 slot with a x16 to x1 adapter and I am getting about 1/3 10G speed which is better than trying to mix 2.5Gbe into my network. Logging in was pretty simple with the Web UI, I just looked in my router for the IP address and it was listed as TLSX3008F. I typed the IP into a Web browser and logged in with the defaults then was immediately prompted to change my password. The instructions say to use 192.168.0.1 but this is not how I was able to access it. I have not tested LAG, but I bet it works fine since the protocol has been standardized. The only thing I don’t like is that the switch is a bit large. It is meant for a server rack so if you are just extending your network to another room it isn’t as good as something like the 4 port SFP+ Mikrotik which is cheaper and very small in comparison.

Works as expectedThe equipment works as expected. But, it was offered and sold in Germany, coming with an US power cord.
