Hey all, a coworker of mine is looking to upgrade his current 10/100 switch to a gigabit switch. He currently has a bunch of Legrand items (current switch, coax splitter, phone line hub, etc in a ON-Q cabinet. To make a long story short he is looking at replacing his current Legrand switch with a gigabit version. I saw the price and I (novice user here) have no clue why the Legrand gigabit switch is $140 + power adapter vs something like a TP-Link gigabit switch for $18.
He is a very light user, laptop, apple tv, printer, etc, no nas or nvr or anything using a lot of network traffic. Probably no more than 5 hardwired items and 10 items in total on wireless.
So, is there any reason why he should stick with a Legrand switch?
This is what he is looking at vs the TP link that I recommended him.
