TRENDnet TPE-TG380/TEG-S750 Overview

Network devices are an essential part in any home network because they provide the communication layer between hardware such as routers, modems and cables. TRENDnet has introduced two new multi-gigabit unmanaged switches that aim to future proof your small living space with budget friendly features like increased speed (at least twice as fast), low energy consumption or complete silence–significantly increasing their lifetime compared other Products on today’s market!

Price and availability

The TPE-TG380 is a powerful eight port switch with Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability, currently available for $266(opens in new tab). It offers up to 100W of power and can be purchased at an exceptional price! The TEG S750 has faster speeds but only five ports which are not enough when you need more than two computers connected. However there’s also the six port 10 Gbit version -theTEG762-, selling for 220 dollars instead of 312$

Design

TRENDnet’s new TEG-S750 10G switch is a high performance, PoE enabled device that offers an intimidating amount of features in its compact case. The safety notice and installation guide are both conveniently located on one side while all other connections face forward from behind the front panel bulletproof glass with LEDs to indicate link up speed as well show network activity throughout each port type (5 Ethernet ports total).

The TPE-TG380 2.5G switch has an interesting layout that is not found in most networks, with the power on off switch being conveniently located next to it and two LEDs showing how much juice remains for your device if there’s any remaining (or excess). A dual LED array shows each port’s link up speed as well as whether they are active or Links Nursery devices can be found towards top right while 1010 switches usually sported by 10g cabinets will instead house them near front left side of casing .

img Future

The 10G switch has an internally bandwidth of 160 Gbps, which is more than the total throughput for all five ports. This should prevent any bottlenecks on this network even during worst-case scenarios thanks to its high performing CPU and RAM equipped with 256MB each!

Features and use

Whether you’re looking for a switch that can be mounted on your wall or one to place flat against the surface, we have something perfect. With these easy-to install devices and their fanless designs (which results in lower power consumption), there’s no need worry about installing bulky equipment just so it operates cool enough!

img Future

The 2.5G switch can reach full speed at 100m using Cat5e cabling, while the 10 Gigabit Switch attainable with 50 meters of cable when equipped on a Layer 3 device that supports auto-speed negotiation for both IPv4 and/or 6 connections via ARP or NDP servers respectively; they will settle down to slower link partner speeds unless otherwise instructed by their clients (ARP/NDP).

Competition

The TP-Link TL-SX105 could be mistaken for TRENDnet’s 10G switch. They both have five Ethernet ports and sport a black metal case, but that is where the similarities end. The newer model consumes more power than its predecessor while having less switching capacity at 100 Gbps; it also costs about $100 dollars more per unit!

img Future

The Netgear MS510TXPP is a 10-port PoE switch that costs about twice as much and has lower MTBF than the TRENDnet. It also generates more noise while running, but it’s managed so you don’t need to worry!

Conclusion

TRENDnet’s TEG-S750 10G switch offers best in class performance at an affordable price with fewer ports but still maintains good scalability and simple use. The two switches reviewed today cover different markets; one is designed for high capacity environments where each port can handle up 100+ cameras or access points while the other meets lower demand requirements by offering only 40 gigabits per second (gbps).
