Is This Ethernet Switch Any Good For A Lanparty?

Recommended Posts

Like the title says, is this any good for small-medium Lanparties (maximum like 24 people or something) ? Ups/downs?

Should work fine. You could probably go cheaper. :) (If you wanted to)

only 2 of those ports are gigabit. personally id get full gigabit, if i was spending that much. but i dont know what affect gigabit will have on lanning as opposed to 100 mbit.

 

edit: on second thought i just took a look at full gigabit 24 port switches. dang they are expensive.

Do you think that having +or- 24 people on a "100mb" ethernet switch would lag anything?

yeah, your edit explains it perfectly. I've been looking at switches recently for work. Most advertised "gigabit" switches are just like the posted one, only 2-4 ports that actually support gigabit, the others just 10/100. To go fully gigabit would cost you an arm and a leg and not worth it to host a lan party.

especially considering that most people dont have gigabit cards so it would run at 10/100 for most people anyways
