I just bought one of these a few days ago, it’s an awesome bit of kit. Using it in SwOS mode and it’s great.

Wouldn’t go near the fs.com switches with the alternative MikroTiks being well priced.

While I cannot comment on fs.com<http://fs.com>, this could be another option. In stock now and cheap.

Hi Everyone,

I am considering using FS.com for a temporary 10G switch as they seem cheap and I should be able to get my hands on it in a week or two. Does anyone have any experience with FS switches? Or any other recommendations?

This isn’t something I wanted to resort to but timing has meant I need something cheap that can act as a largely dumb switch with 8 or so 1/10G SFP+ ports, till I can sort out the Juniper QFX boxes I am intending to get. All I need it for is the ports, and some basic VLAN tagging and trunking. And I just need it to not fail for a couple of months :-) Thanks!

I am considering:

Also considering a Ubuiquiti ES‑16‑XG however an admittedly brief search suggests this would be hard to find in stock anywhere.

Appreciate any suggestions/feedback. Thanks!
