It's good, just unmanaged. If you don't plan on vlans or port aggregation its a solid choice.

The netgear is unmanaged. It's like driving an 4 cylinder automatic car that has only (P, R, N, D). Put it In gear and it does the rest reliably, but dont expect to go drifting or do anything fun. The ubiquity is an unmanaged switch. It's the manual transmission V8 corvette. You can drive like normal, until you want to drift, race, do donuts... (Control bandwidth, create Vlan' s, port map, create network security)...

This unit has a fan for those installing this in an area where noise can be an issue. And no POE for those that need it. A fanless alternative with POE can be the US-8-150w

Thank you. So if I have a small business with a server and 7 workstations, what would be a solid choice ? Thanks so much

It depends on what your business requirements are. If you plan to get a firewall, wireless guess access and other stuff, you might want to go to something like a managed ubiquiti switch with PoE (power over Ethernet). You're obviously using a switch to link your workstations and server together now.

Thank you. I do want to look into a firewall.
What's the advantage of having PoE ?
Do you have any tips on what's a good firewall?

Thanks for the deal, OP. Was looking for one of these to replace a pair of eight port unmanaged switches. Lack of PoE is annoying (wish it had SOMETHING so I could power an AP), but that's forgivable for the price.

US-8-150W does indeed have a fan, and a lot of people replace the stock one with an aftermarket model because it's rather noisy. You may be thinking of a US-8-60W switch.

EDIT: I was incorrect here; thinking of 24-port and need aftermarket fan on that model for noise. 8/150 is "fanless" but perhaps I should have noted you may WANT to add a fan to that particular device as they run hot indeed.

Is this a common mod? If so, do you have a link?

Note: As you mentioned, the Switch-24 does have a fan. However, except at the initial startup, the fan has never come on in my use. The fan is set to come on @ 74C IIRC.
