For the same amount of money you get 2 SFP+ ports with 10Gb in Mikrotik switch with everyday prices. I own a mix of Mikrotik and Ubiquiti (10Gb switch, 8 ports POE switch and 3 WiFi access points) network equipment so no aversion to company products.

You got a link or exact model

It looks like there are currently 2 Mikrotik models with 24 1Gb and 2 SFP+ ports with the first one being much cheaper:

https://www.amazon.com/Mikrotik-C...ref=sr_1_1

and

https://www.amazon.com/Mikrotik-C...ref=sr_1_1

I own the second one. Technically it supports routing functionality but CPU is so slow that you do not want to use it. Mikrotik UI is not as slick as Ubiquiti but both require some networking knowledge and provide support for CLI.

Mikrotik switch has been rock solid for me. Amazon prices for Mikrotik equipment are hit or miss so might consider balticnetworks. I believe that they are one of the few "official" Mikrotik distributors in the US.

Thanks for that link. Would it make a difference to consolidate to single switch like this instead of multiple gigabit routers used as switches? Have three or four routers that are connected to main router but wondering if there is any benefit except having single device.

Nice. I've been looking for a decent switch to do link agg for my Plex server. What is your primary use for the switch?

Mikrotik is aggregating switch on a different floor with 10Gb fiber link trunk connected to Ubiquiti 10Gb main switch that is next to my server, router and other networking equipment. Home theater and video streaming devices are connected via gigabit ports to Mikrotik and fiber 10Gb is upstream.

Mikrotik switch does NOT support links aggregation, to the best of my knowledge.
