just brew it! wrote:One feature that can still differentiate unmanged switches is the total available bandwidth. Some cheaper switches can't handle all ports blasting away simultaneously at full speed, and can potentially become a performance bottleneck in high traffic environments. In general, this isn't going to be an issue unless the switch is installed in a datacenter; but it is something to consider, depending on your use case.
