In my field, I honestly can't think of a scenario I wouldn't want to use an SG switch. Even if someone needed a simple desktop switch, I would advise they purchase a $150 8 port SG350 over spending $50 on a SOHO Netgear or similar switch. The flexibility of functionality offered by these switches in unmatched.

  • Cisco Switches are extremely expensive (however the service that you get it outstanding)

I used Cisco and Cisco is a great product but more on the expensive side. This is a great product for smaller companies.

Both vendors can produce good switches and I don't find big differences from reliability or technical level between them
