I’ve recently come across a managed 10G SFP+ switch that seems quite reasonably priced. Before I proceed with the purchase, I was hoping to gather some feedback from those who have used this particular model. It’s a Horaco 10G SFP+.

Model:
ZX-SWTGW2C8F


The price seems to be very hot.

I just got one a few days ago. I'm planning on writing up a good review soon, but here's my quick thoughts.

Switching speed is excellent, you'll get 10gb no problem. Transceiver compatibility is also excellent, I've tried 3 different modules and all worked. Once I had my switch up and running, I had my linux server ping the switch all night. Couple thousand pings later, no dropped pings.

Heating is fine. When I had 5 ports lit and active, the top of the case gets barely warm.

The interface is similar (or the same) to the other generic realtek switches. Its functional, but can be a tad buggy.

They default to IP 192.168.0.1 out of the box, which is really annoying when that's your router's IP :rolleyes: Easily fixed, but annoying none the less.

The LED arrangement is kinda blah. Instead of having a LED over the port, its all bunched together and kinda washes out.

Side note, default login and password is "admin". When I got my switch, there wasn't any documentation on that. Fortunately I'd seen that information posted here on STH so ended up not being a big deal.

Side note #2, I found a better price for you, $98. https://www.aliexpress.us/item/3256806579063341.html

No, that's the 2.5G... $160 for the 8x SFP+ version
sorry, my bad (I am seeing $150 for the Xike 8 port SFP+ at Amazon, but your point is still correct, I originally gave the price for the 2.5G one)

That's 1Gb so not what you're looking for in the first place... no idea on the rest of your Q tho.
It's actually a 10/100/1000Mbit SFP. Just asking myself if I need to purchase the managed version of the switch to have an option to manually set the link speed

Unmanaged will not let you set anything... Whether the management will let you set link speed would even be a question since this isn't a common need outside enterprise.
