ServeTheHome have embarked on a significant project, reviewing 16 inexpensive 2.5GbE switches.  You will be glad to hear that they led with a round up, so you can quickly browse through the list of models they will be posting detailed reviews of.   If any model catches your attention or that you have questions about, the detailed reviews will be going up over the next few weeeks.

This round up gives  you a quick overview of all the switches, as well as revealing STH’s favourites in each category.  You can go with a plain old 2.5GbE model, or look through the SPF+, 10Gbase-T and PoE models.  All shall be revealed if you send your packets this way.
