"Good price point and very simple to use.""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.""Overall the solution functions very well.""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.""The performance is good. They also have good prices.""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.""This product is very reasonably priced."

Cons
"Documentation and access to it could be greatly improved.""You do need to be an IT person in order to handle the initial setup. An AV person would struggle a bit.""The documentation could be improved; it's quite basic."

More Luxul Switches Cons →

"I had some initial problems with the configuration that necessitated contacting technical support.""It would be helpful to have better visibility into exactly what is going on in the network.""Most configuration can be done on the GUI but sometimes you have to go under the hood and tweak on the CLI.""In terms of improvement, sometimes we have bugs.""I would recommend changing the solution to a recognized one, such as Check Point or Fortinet.""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.""The management of this product needs to be improved.""I'd like there to be better reporting for the solution."
