I bought a layer 2 HPE Office Connect 1820 switch so I could have greater trunked bandwidth 802.3ad LACP to my QNAP 231P NAS for an upcoming LAN party. I've failed to make it work. See here if interested: https://hardforum.com/threads/recom...with-lacp-for-nas-use-at-lan-parties.1961076/ I'm back to making another purchase and I desire input from the networking enthusiast crowd - as this isn't my technical wheelhouse. Here's what's important to my buying decision: 802.3ad (LACP) - I want to get the full 200+ MB/s shared trunk networking speed from the QNAP. 24 Port minimum (for use at occasional LAN parties) Web GUI/ease of administration Fanless preferred Low Power draw easy VLANs options - so I can separate out my crypto mining machines from my home network in typical use. Here are the units I'm now considering: $200 - Ubiquiti EdgeSwitch Lite 24 Ports Wall-Mountable Fanless Switch with Optional DC Input - ES-24-LITE-US https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=0XP-000A-000B1 $200 - Ubiquiti Networks US-24-US Managed Gigabit Switches with SFP1 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=0XP-000A-000S4 $150 - Mikrotik Routerboard CSS326-24G-2S+RM https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=0XP-002R-000A7 $150 - Refurb Cisco 2960S eBay I've been told to ill consider Trendnet, Linksys, D-link etc - - - because they are just lower tier consumer gear that isn't reliable, and newegg reviews more or less seem to confirm that vs the brands like Ubiquiti, Mikrotik, and Cisco. Which do you recommend, or is there something else I should consider?
