Any comment about this product? I saw some negetive reply at several forums for this product. I am in puzzle wether to buy this switch or to go for 2960 series which is quite expensive but reliable. I never heard of Catalyst 500 switch.
Bur GUI interface of this switch is too slow as what i read in forums. Is that true? And it malfunctions sometimes if not configured full/half duplex .. Any detailed info about this ? You tried this Switch before?
I wonder if this switch is suitable in a environment where I have approx 90 user's. And I will buy 24 port 3 nos of Catalyst 500 switch. So considering uplinking and traffic, those switches will work smooth?
I am worried about conjugation and other issues like heating. 3COM base line switches over heats. 1 of my 3COM switch started making noise. Probably heat sink fan which is located at back panel is not working probably. I guess bearing is about to get damaged. Anyway.
I still can't decide. I haven't seen any good
scenario's at Cisco's web site. I guess due to the cheap price, they wont make any advertise of this Switch..Ha !!
I have two of the 500 express switches at one of my sites (not by choice). I don't like them! No CLI, all GUI based and it's SLOW! Not good for extended commands. I would stay away from them. I would go with the 2960's. Configuring one of the 500 express switches generaly takes much longer to configure than the CLI switches.
^^ I agree, from my experience I would never buy a 500 express. Used one for digital video network, ports would shut off for no apparent reason, if I recall the error was something about too much traffic was being sent or something.
Not one Ciscos better products. Someone in our company got caught up with the price and failed to look at the over all picture. The first thing that they did wrong was go with an all GUI admin of the box and droped the CLI. When configuring the unit remotely once a local person put an IP on the unit it took over two minutes to just login, then a minute to move between screens.

Hi, I am seeing quite a few issues with patch install and wanted to
share my experience and workaround to this. Login to admin via CLI, then
