    Has anyone had any experience with this switch?

    Looks like a decent pricepoint for 8 10g ports with two of them being sfp+ ports..

    Yeah, I have one. I have CAT5e in the walls already, running back to my closet, and it was difficult to get fibre anywhere useful. So I have this in my server rack (which is somewhere cooler than my closet) and I have 10Gbps between my closet and my rack.

    Basic L2 functionality; the other storm protection, etc. triggers unexpectedly during large file transfers, etc., so I've turned it all off.

    Cool cool.

    Any exp with LAG issues or not using that at all?

    Its basically going to be sitting as a backup/VM mgmt switch.

    Not using LAG. I guess I could try with the second drop this weekend; haven't had a need to, really...

    For the usage im planning - two VM hosts and one backup server. That shouldnt be a Big issue. Will only be doing backup traffic on it really from the looks of it
