5 port gigabit switch for $15 is a slickdeal? You routinely can get a 5 or 8 port gigabit switch in 12-20 dollar range when on sale.

It's a pretty good deal. Show me where I can get these features on a $12-20 product with a lifetime warranty.

It is not a bad deal, it is just imo avg and hardly worth mentioning.

And one needs a lifetime warranty on a $15 switch like you need a hole in one's head. I have a dozen+ gigabit switches in my home I have bought over the years, most 8 port, from various vendors from linksys to d-link, to western digital to netgear. I have never paid more than $25 for any one and never had any of them go bad. This is not a router with RF components or a switch with poe capabilities, but a simple gigabit switch it probably costs the manufacturer $5 to make. Anything can go bad\malfunction obviously, but the odds are small in my experience.

And as for price comparison:

You can could say the same thing about most of the deals on SD, not bad, but not really that hot. For someone in the market for a switch, it's worth the mention.

We use a lot of equipment at work, switches do indeed fail, it's rare but it happens.

The Plus (sometimes called "smart" from other companies) has a management interface with VLAN and other settings. Can't compare the price to a basic unmanaged switch.

I hope Slickdeals get a small share on all of my purchases through their website.
Maybe SD should issue their own Credit Card, I for one would use it, just provide Cashback like Chase or others. No points or other BS just Cashback. Please no rotating categories or other scam like promotions just across the board.

I used to buy almost every computer part through New Egg, not any more, with slow shipping, awkward returns and usually not the best price. I know buy most parts through Amazon.

Why I usually buy from someone else.

OOS again, so common for New Egg, a Slick Deal is OOS!

I buy mostly from Amazon, these days, even if a little more money as they have great Customer Service and returns.

This deal is for a managed switch... both your links are for unmanaged switches.
Apples and oranges.....?

Hey well if you are some network engineer needing to fine tune your complicated home network setup because you have a few media and other servers running in your basement\attic or wherever, then feel free. You still can get them on sale on the cheap if you wait for a deal.

Additionally, 99+% of home network users do not need to pay for the managed capabilities of a switch and I would venture to guess the overwhelming majority would not know how to do it even if they wanted to. But if you want to go around knit picking and proclaiming the virtues of a 5 port gigabit managed switch for $15 as some great slickdeal bargain, feel free.

Lol, there is a reason this deal is slick. You might as well admit you don't know why it's slick ( You already did for anyone who comes from an IT background) and move on. You linked meh switches compared to the one listed in the OP.

You're wrong and you're rationalizing. Just stop posting.

This is a gig managed switch that allows you to span ports (for sniffing) among many other things. This is NOT a standard $15 gig switch, don't compare one with the other. This is indeed slick to get a managed switch for this price, period.

Has flood protections and speed throttling capabilities apparently among many other managed features.

Anyway appears to be in stock right now, just bought one. Thanks OP!

Can't speak for everyone, but I need the hole in my head, so I guess that means I need the lifetime warranty on this. Thanks OP
