We are using this switch in a school lab environment with fairly heavy traffic. It works great and hasn't had any issues. We did do a firmware update immediately upon receipt and recommend that others to the same. We've used several of the "managed" features available thru the web interface for per port traffic limitations, limiting number of MAC addresses that can be registered per port, etc. All have worked reasonably well. This product has far exceeded our expectations in terms of both speed and robustness of the management features. Excellent value for gigabit Ethernet.
