Do these require some kind if an online account to manage them? Netgear went crazy lately and started doing this.

If you're asking, you probably don't need one. Business-class -- typically allows you to manage traffic on the network with a lot more control..
I only look at them because of possibility of link-aggregation for my NAS.
Yes, maybe more work/control than most will ever need or want.

-- The chart on the first link provided is very good to describe Netgear's offerings/features. They market these to small-businesses and up. I think for the more complex managed ones you probably need a network administrator to admin the damn things.. Might be more than most are willing/wanting to chew off.

EDIT: Looks like most posted here are the Plus variant though.. Geared to small business, not bad.. Link Aggregation and some small control features.

Fair! I have a regular switch at home.. I probably could have just googled my question. But thanks for the reply. I've learned a lot on this forum and it's from people asking questions and people replying.

Better deal than Amazon's lowest looks like. Great deal. Picked up the 16 port. Thanks OP!

Link Aggregation won’t gain more speed in your home environment, most of the time only 1 client connects to the server and only have 1 gigabyte Ethernet card, so the speed will be limited to the client maximize.

Damn, a week too late! I just upgraded my home networking and bought a GS108LP which is unmanaged to run a couple POE cameras and a tp-link EAP225 and spent about the same for it. Managed would be nice to do a VLAN on, but I didn't want to spend the extra for my home network just to do it.

This is a hot deal if you want to run a few POE devices easily without injectors.

Pretty sure this is overkill for my home setup. But got the 16 port, as I needed to upgrade from 8 ports to 16, and am looking at installing some security cams, so PoE should be handy. I've really got to sit down and learn this stuff, I've got conflicts somewhere with my current setup (separate router for WiFi, 8 port switch, 3 Powerline adapters, work IP phone, and a Synology NAS I haven't figured out). At this rate, I'm going to have to go back to school to figure all this out!

It allows you to configure multiple vlans, link aggregation, and several other layer 2 features. Like it was mentioned before, link aggregation won't necessarily double your speed when you only plug in one thing. It all depends what protocol and mode you configure.

Having an active-active mode, again you'll have to choose the load balancing algorithm, which for example can be XOR, where it can be done by MAC/IP addresses combinations or IP/layer 4 ports combinations. It all depends on which LAG protocol the switch supports. So if the traffic is always the same MAC/IP/Port number combination, the traffic will always go through the same physical switch port. You will get redundancy in case of a failure.

All these things can also be done with a cheap linksys router that you can flash with ddwrt or openwrt.

Totally agree, my Pi-Hole setup blocks most of the referral links.

This is what bugs me the most too. I do have success opening them with "in Private" or "incognito" tabs but that presents other annoyances.

Rakuten has Dell consumer at 2% and Dell for work has 6%, I used the Dell for work link and logged in with my normal Dell account, not sure if you needed to set up separate accounts but I'm hoping I qualified for the 6%.

Thanks op for this. I got the 16 port managed with POE, would have liked it to be 24 port to be future proof but I am ok with this for now.

Is it safe to power a Ubiquiti Access Points and a Ubiquiti IP Phones with this?
I am tired of having POE injectors everywhere
