The SRW2008P-K9-NA is fundamentally fundamentally very different to the older SRW2008P.
It's not just a change in name/packaging, but the 300 series is a refresh of look and feel using a Cisco GUI and the 65um internal Silicon. Hence we have built in energy saving GREEN features into the product.
The new SRW2008P-K9-NA, and in fact all the 300 series are now Layer 3 switches NOT just layer 2 switches, so you can route between VLANs.
You may note on my screen capture below that I am accessing the management interface via IPv6 and not IPv4, so it's set up for NG networks.
You will also note some of the newer featues in the really neat GUI that comes with the box. Eleven of the new 300 series are fanless. My SG300-10P or SKU number SRW2008P-K9-NA has 10 active ports and not eight as with the older SRW2008P and is fanless. HAVE I SOLD YOU YET !
Warranty on the new switches are really sweet, the new product comes with forward replacement Next Business Day if my Small Business Support Center determines that the product needs a RMA .
With the old product yes, 5 year warranty, but return to manufacturer before a replacement was sent out. This new product is a a real pleasure to work with.
I have relegated my old SRW2008P to be my father-in-Laws Christmas present.
I have attached the jpeg image if you want a closer look. I think you will be very pleasantly surprised by the features functions and get some peace of mind with the Warranty.
