    EnGenius released three new managed Gigabit switches for SMBs. The new Neutron series switches include 48-port, 24-port, and 8-port models.

    Designed for businesses like hotels, restaurants and retail, the new manageable Neutron switches include features such as a web-based management interface, a built-in wireless controller that supports up to 50 Neutron EWS APs, Layer 2 options including VLAN/Voice and QoS, and expanded management using the ezMaster management software that adds reporting and analytics without additional point licenses or subscriptions.

    The three new smart switches include:
    • The EWS1200-52T is a 48-port Gigabit managed switch that also includes four dedicated GbE SFP fiber ports and an RJ-45 console port.
    • The EWS1200-28T is a 24-port Gigabit managed switch that also includes four dedicated GbE SFP fiber ports and an RJ-45 console port.
    • The EWS1200D-10T is an 8-port Gigabit managed switch that also inclues two dedicated GbE SFP fiber ports.
    EnGenius announced the Neutron Gigabit managed switches will be available in August. MSRPs for the new switches are $529 for the EWS1200-52T, $269 for the EWS1200-28T, and $129 for the EWS1200D-10T.

    You forgot to mention that this is a layer 2 switch not layer 3. Does everyone agree on the pricing of theses layer 2 managed switches? Any interfaces/configuration interface pictures or is it CLI only?

    The switch does not support static routes so . . . Layer 2 only.
    Who is this "everyone" that needs to agree on the pricing? This is a switch and wireless controller.
    "Neutron switches include features such as a web-based management interface" So I would say it supports both GUI and CLI. No demo or detailed images though.

    Just asking the opinion if they think the switch is a good deal or fit. So it supports wireless controller for engenius AP only?
