There's a coupon you have to click to get $15 off bringing the price down to $90. This was Front page at $85 so clearly not the lowest price ever but if you're looking for a decent sized 24 port switch this is worth looking at.

It's a long read [pfsense.org], but in short, this switch does not offer true isolation of traffic. VLAN 1 is always allowed and an ARP (broadcast) on VLAN 1 is always allowed to propagate out of all ports regardless of configuration settings (PVID, VLAN, ETC). I ended up reverting back to a power hungry, but reliable Cisco switch.

vlan1 is by default untagged for all port so if no configuration all ports will work as if there is no vlan set up. I did test on my netgear switch but I suppose if you remove vlan1 or make all ports tagged, so it only accept traffic with tag, you would control which vlan open to specific port.

If after set each port vid (pvid) to your own vlan number, so the untagged traffic only goes to your designated vlan, the vlan1 is still open to all, that's a problem. I doubt such obvious basic flaw is acceptable to any managed switch.

simple basic English explanation...Big Grin

does 1024DE has web-basigureed configuration access?
I know some tplink has only windows utility, they disable web access and required their windows tool to configure the switch

On the amazon production page it listed the DE model has web configuration marked.

Is twice the price worth it for a ubiquiti switch just since it plays nice with their APs? I want to setup some vlans.

I would say it's worth if it if you are interested in the POE switches ubiquiti offers. Otherwise I find the non-poe ubiquiti switches are overpriced for what they are + if you buy the unifi switches instead of the edgemax you don't have a way to connect directly to your switch. You have to use their controller.

Is this overkill for a guy who just wants to run cat6 to the rooms in his house? I mostly use my network for Plex streaming and media storage/NAS access.

Only you can decide that. If you're running a UniFi system, most definitely. If not, perhaps not. But make sure you're comparing apples to apples. Any large port switch at $100 or less, I'd be looking very carefully at the specs and such. There are a LOT of really crappy "Smart" or "Managed" switches floating around. VLANs already make me nervous (I'm not a fan of virtualizing interfaces - or much of anything else for that matter) and there's no way in hell I'd take a gamble with a low-end one to save a quick buck. But that's entirely up to you.

Aggg.

I tried to cancel my Amazon ​order this morning, but it was already too late. I think I'll have to go thru the return process since I consider this a product defect.

Did find a Trendnet TEG-240WS on CL that looks interesting. Any opinions?

Well, I got the switch, but I won't even open it and will return it to Amazon because of the security flaw. Picked up the TEG-240WS off of CL for $80 and have already started moving thru my configs. Looks to be even more full featured than the TPLink as it has ACLs. I was able to take everything out of VLAN 1, but can't actually delete the VLAN. Locked config access to only port 20 for right now and confirmed no other port has access. I also enabled SSL on the web config and it now refuses standard HTTP connections. Just gotta be careful to not lock myself out since it doesn't have a serial port or CLI

Edit:
Forgot the weirdest thing. The switch arrived from Amazon in its native packaging, complete with shrink wrap on the outside and the label slapped onto that. No protective outer packaging at all which just seemed weird
