    Old machine, old NIC, modern alternatives?

    Hi Guys, What is the verdict on these two? What I'm I going to miss if I take the Unifi 16-XG, anything? Is Ubiquiti manageable from web or does it require the Ubiquiti controller application? Seems like 16-XG is considerably cheaper so want to know any gotchas. Thanks
