After our first unmanaged switch review (the Linksys LGS124), I wanted to see if there was any difference between switches, and if so, where those differences would come out. With so many manufacturers out there marketing switches, I wanted to find something that hasn't been reviewed a multitude of times.
Buffalo Technology is well known for their storage solutions and wireless routers, with many of those devices coming through the lab here at TweakTown. Little did I know, Buffalo dabbled in network switches too, so today we will be looking over their 24 port unmanaged switch: the GS-BS2124U.
The Buffalo G2124U carries 24 gigabit ports, with 802.3, 802.3u, and 802.3ab compliance. Additionally, the switch is capable of saving power by disabling ports not in use.
As of this writing, the Buffalo BS-G2124U carries a MSRP of $109.99, and a three-year warranty.
