Released January, 2010
The Pros:Setup is very simple, everything works as one would expect. Instructions are very clear and straight forward. Provides consistently fast connections, true to the Gigabit standard.
The Cons:Draws a fair amount of power when the network is active. Generates a fair amount of heat, has a noisy fan.

Like the GS724T, it features 24 10/100/1000 Mbps switching ports for non-blocking 48 Gbps bandwidth and has two dual-personality SFP slots that can be used for fiber connectivity. However, the switch is an upgrade to the GS724T since it also offers advanced security features like ACL filtering and 802.1x port authentication. The ProSafe GS724T-300 includes smart switch capabilities for managing the network with performance monitoring, VLAN, port trunking, and Class of Service functionality. It also offers enhanced Quality of Service with rate-limiting and is designed to be energy efficient with an auto power-down feature. The ProSafe GS724T-300 has a suggested retail price of $425 and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
