Comparing Trendnet TEG-s80g and TEG-s82g gigabit switches

less than 1 minute read

I was disappointed to find the Trendnet TEG-S80g version 3.0 lacks LED speed indicators. It has only active (plugin detection) 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. It survived dramatic room flooding, where water drained from the ceiling onto a powered-on TEG-S80g. Upon disassembly there was hardly any moisture inside, and of course the TEG-S80g functioned.
