These switches might be just the thing to tie your network together, if you have been thinking of upgrading to 2.5GbE-T for the workstations, and 10GbE-T for your LAN backbone and NAS, like I have.
I *just* saw these, they appear to be fairly new.
List price for a D-Link managed switch (I have two of them) with 8-port 2.5GbE-T and 2-port 10GbE SFP+ was ~$500, so @ $299, the QNAP switch hits a new decent price-point.
Both are managed, BTW, with a web GUI.
Don't forget QNAP's 5-port unmanaged 2.5GbE-T switch with loop detection as well. Currently ~$130.
Edit: Also don't forget QNAPs "QHORA" router, with dual 10GbE ports on it, and Wifi AX 3600.
I wonder if we will see a product refresh of that router, with 2x 10GbE as well as 4x 2.5GbE soon? If so, I would wait.
