Some good TP-Link deals posted here using 20% clip coupon.

However I found the unmentioned 8-port Managed Smart Switch [amazon.com] as a daily deal for $23.99.
That's basically the same price as the above mentioned 5 port!
Looks to be the best price I've seen at at (Camel also seems to indicate that).

THIS IS A PRIME EXCLUSIVE!

Had a Trendnet died a while back - paid the same for unmanaged at the time.
This one also looks like it has some type of lifetime warranty.

Be careful and look at your packaging. This may be a classic bait switch. I ordered two of the web managed switches and unmanaged one's came. Same thing happened to a buddy of mine. I filed a customer service complaint with Amazon and waiting to hear from them.

Well it is technically unmanaged--look at the Amazon title.

A "smart switch" is sort of like a baby-managed switch. It offers some functions that true "managed" switches do--like port aggregation and VLANs, but is missing many of the more advanced features.

I know it's confusing but with switches, "Managed" means a very-specific set of capabilities, which these partially lack even though they have a web interface, VLANs, etc.

They're good switches though, especially for home use. I bought one almost exactly a year ago for about the same price.
