Comparing Trendnet TEG-s80g and TEG-s82g gigabit switches

I was disappointed to find the Trendnet TEG-S80g version 3.0 lacks LED speed indicators; it has only Active indicators for each port.

Model/Rev LED speed indicator metal jacks buffer memory (kB) MAC address table (entries)
TEG-S80g Rev 1.0 yes yes 128 4K
TEG-S80g Rev 2.1 yes yes 128 8K
TEG-S80g Rev 3.0 no no 256 8K
TEG-S82g Rev 2.0 no no 256 8K

The TRENDnet TEG-S80g model has been reliable for me, including surviving dramatic room flooding where water drained from the ceiling onto a powered-on TEG-S80g and upon disassembly there was hardly any moisture inside, and of course the TEG-S80g functioned.
