    EDIT: Both mentioned in another thread: 10gbe copper switch

    Netgear GS110MX (unmanaged)

    Netgear GS110EMX (web managed)
    Note: Prices are converted from SEK to US Dollar, and include Swedish VAT. Prices may be lower elsewhere. Both 10GBit ports also support 2,5Gbit and 5Gbit.

    How do you like the XS708T? Compared to the Ubiquiti?

    Also, tried finding CPU HW specs for the US-16-XG. Any info on that data?

    I just get the TP-LINK T1700G-28TQ on sale @206.99 €.
    I will come back when it will replace my GS724t v3 to give my opinion on it.

    Any idea how loud these are?

    Although I really need one with 4 10Gbase-T ports.

    realized I never posted this here

    brocade ICX6450 - $100 on ebay
    • 24/48 1gbE copper (PoE available)
    • 4x 10gbE SFP+ (also work great with $50 Mikrotik S+RJ10 SFP+ modules for 10gbE over copper as well)
    • full layer 3, IPV4 + IPV6 routing, VRRP, OSPF, everything you'd expect on an enterprise switch
    • 22w power draw with a couple ports active
    • 1 small fan, nearly silent
    brocade ICX6610 ~$250 on ebay (sometimes much less with the best offer feature)
    • 24/48 1gbE copper (PoE available)
    • 16x 10gbE SFP+ (also work great with $50 Mikrotik S+RJ10 SFP+ modules for 10gbE over copper as well)
    • 2x 40gbE
    • full layer 3, IPV4 + IPV6 routing, VRRP, OSPF, BGP, VRFs, tunnels, everything
    • 100w power draw with a couple ports active
    • audible - about the same as an R710, little quieter than LB6M
    The 10gbE ports require a license to unlock, but licenses are free for *existing* STH members (have some left over from work)

    "10G & 40G ports are available with a valid license"
    Any idea where to get a free or cheap license?

    check my post edit. No 40gbE on the 6450 though, that must be for another switch

    I pumped out some emails to Trendnet to follow up on the Aquantia chips which were (apparently) going to offer around $30 US per port.

    Aquantia have reference designs with 4/5/8 ports, I believe it's their new chips (well, 2016)
    Sadly only one product has been released, with 8 ports and it's $600 US (Over 2x the price estimated)

    Really want a 2.5/5/10Gb-BASE-T switch with 4 / 5 ports, under $300 US - be damned if it exists yet.

    Your url is bad.

    Idid find a cheap buffalo on Amazon but I don't need 8 ports :/ rather pay 2/3 the price, for half the ports.

    Can I ask ... why? I am trying to think of a use case for such a switch but am failing.

    Because I only have a handful of devices which could use that kind of speed and I want to keep costs down?

    Sorry, I was not aware that there were any consumer 2.5 or 5 Gbps products on the market. Plenty of 1 and 10. Hence I was curious of your use case.

    There are now network cards which do 1/2.5/5/10 under $80$ US ( at least 4 cards that I'm aware of )

    There are also, apparently, to be switches released which will be much cheaper. So they claim. As cheap as $30 US per port for 10Gb
    I'd gladly pay 'only' double that for a 4 port, but alas, no traction.

    About to pull the trigger on an ebay Brocade 6450. Any other recommendations for a silent switch with 4 SFP+, 16~ 1Gb RJ45?

    The 6450-24 is virtually silent with an aftermarket fan. There's some PWM circuitry whine when the fan spins down but the fan itself is basically silent. I haven't spent any time figuring out how much load the switch wants to avoid PWM noise entirely but if you want absolutely silent you might want to do so.

    I used one of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007WLQAKE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00

    Note: The PoE models are hotter and louder, I didn't replace the fans in the -24p that I use downstairs in the basement as it seemed like it benefits from the extra airflow.

    Do you know how old the chassis is? the caps/inductors in the PSU might be aged quite a bit if it's whining, on my two test units they were dead silent with no PSU whine (and I only know this because I ran them with the fan completely unplugged)

    I honestly can't tell, there's no date code anywhere on the label.

    Mine makes zero power circuitry noise with the fan unplugged and with the original fan running at 100% on boot; I only hear noise from the power circuitry when fans spin down to low speed. I've got it running now (around 10' away) and it's pretty close to silent, you'll only hear it if you're sensitive to very high frequency.

    ooh interesting, that would be the PWM drive circuitry on the main board then. I'll have to try and listen for it next time
