Are these switches any good and which model do you recommend over others?
Are being 'unmanaged' a good thing or bad?

Maybe the $100 24-port one. Unmanaged switches are a dime a dozen these days.

I got a $244 Mikrotik which is $76 more than that GS1100-24E but management, extra network features and dual 10g.

Most of the unmanaged switches I buy are little 5-8 port ones that I use just to provide extra physical ports. Those are really cheap.

Thanks OBasel for your feedback. Much appreciated.

I got the GS1100-24 for ~$75-85 a few years ago on newegg or amazon. Can't remember. It still works! :p

I haven't used any of their switches, yet.

However, I can say on the router/security gateway side, I have had great experiences (USG 50).

Also, their support has been excellent. They even connected to one router to help with configs, when some more advanced things needed to be fixed/configured (automagic failover with dual WAN, VoIP, NAT, smokeping, etc, etc).
