"The most valuable feature is the security that these switches provide."
"We have found that the command line interface is very useful and very similar to Cisco devices."
"The most valuable features are the stability and compatibility with other products."
"The most valuable aspect for our organization is the CX. It's wonderful."
"This is a very stable product with good performance."
"We have not had any issues with the product and its functions. It has been stable."
"The Aruba care support and the lifetime warranty are very valuable aspects."
"It's a reliable product that you can depend on."
"The ability to deploy quickly and then having one central location for all the settings are its most valuable aspects."
"The most valuable feature for us is the VPN."
"The user interface makes it simple to configure and manage."
"Good price point and very simple to use."
"It is great size-wise and the user interface is easy to use. You don't need to be a pro to use this solution."
"Ubiquiti UniFi Switches are stable and support Layer 3. They come with a user-friendly interface. If you're not familiar with the command-line interface or you wouldn't like to configure it by using the command line, they have a user-friendly interface that you can use. They also have good documentation about how to use these switches."
"It's been working fine, it's been stable, and there are no interruptions."
"These switches are very simple to use and the GUI is very nice."
"They have limited CLI options in the UI and this is something that needs improvement."
"The product could be a little more competitive price-wise."
"It would be better and easier for us to buy if the price were reduced."
"The dashboard could be improved, especially for the CX Switches. It would help to push scripts and configurations via an easy to use dashboard, one which would give us complete visibility of all of our switches in one place. Right now, we have more than one dashboard for Aruba. It would be nice if it was centralized."
"The customer service could be a bit quicker and the employees could be more professional."
"It would be good if I could get a 24-port, 10 gig module."
"I would say that the customization of the switches could be easier to configure."
"We would like to see centralized, cloud-based management."
"I'd like there to be better reporting for the solution."
"Most configuration can be done on the GUI but sometimes you have to go under the hood and tweak on the CLI."
"I would recommend changing the solution to a recognized one, such as Check Point or Fortinet."
"I had some initial problems with the configuration that necessitated contacting technical support."
"They can improve the visibility of networks to match Meraki switches, which have good visibility tools to go through the network. In a Meraki device, you get a clear picture when using the bug interface. You can also see its neighbors and have a clear picture of all connected devices. Ubiquiti UniFi Switches do not have such features that Meraki switches provide."
"It would be helpful to have better visibility into exactly what is going on in the network."
"The management of this product needs to be improved."
"It would be beneficial for us if Ubiquiti had a team of advanced data transportation specialists that we could get feedback from. We are not experts in data transportation, so having this sort of resource would be helpful for us."

Reviews from Real Users
A PeerSpot user who is a Director of Technical Operations/CTO at a consultancy says "The ability to deploy quickly and then having one central location for all the settings are its most valuable aspects."
"The integration with the controller is one of the most valuable features of these switches. They are also very stable. For example, we have some equipment that we haven't touched for four years that is still reliable," says Doru I., Senior solutions architect at Aplix Technologies
Murali S., Management Consultant at a consultancy, explains that “For the world where you have to balance traffic and traffic loads and bandwidth, their GUI makes it really easy because the switches, though they are enterprise grade level two or level three switches, the GUI is designed so that it's easy to set up VLANs where you need to control your traffic so that your phones don't break up and get choppy because of other people loading the network down too heavily."
