I cannot find any.



Packing contents come with Console cable, Power cable, a retainer clip with adjustment nut, and couple of EULA, and Quick start manuals.

Left to right: Console cable, retainer clip with adjustment nut, rack ears and screws, and a power cable.


Picture of the console cable. Looks like a cat5 cable with a RJ45 to DB9 connector.


This is the retainer clip w/ adjustment nut.


All of the racking hardware. It also has 4 rubber feet if you wish to mount it on your desk.


This is sort of how the retainer clip works. Allows you to secure the power cable into the switch. so you cannot pull it out. So there are no accidental cable pulls.


Rack ears installed. They seem to be VERY sturdy. They have extra tabs that go into the switch to secure it just a little bit more. The chassis also seems very well made. I have to give them then.

    What I’d like to see is a comparison of this unit, and others, against a home built router/switch using pfsense.

    We can definitely do that. However, I want to mention that this isn’t a home built switch. This is a enterprise level switch. There are things that this will just do better. Most home built stuff will have a very small backplane 2Gbit-8Gbit max, while this will do over 56Gbit/sec on the back plane. My follow up review will show what this thing will do 24/7 365. We’ve just put this switch into production 🙂

    You can certainly compare x86 home-built router with enterprise-level performance and features (e.g. Vyatta) to big-name routers that does the same thing. But this is a switch; there are no home-built possibilities here.

      Yeah. While this will do some static routing for you, it shouldn’t be used as a router. This should be used in conjunction with a router.
