What's the difference between v4 and v5?

I found that v4 is labeled Unmanaged Pro and v5 is Easy Smart, but are there any other differences than name change?

Hi, 

 

No other differences than name changed (of course, hardware version differs).

Unmanaged Pro Switch is actually equal to Easy Smart Switch. They are both ideal upgrade from unmanaged switches.

Some customers may take the Unmanaged Pro switch as Unmanaged switch by mistake, but they are different things.

To avoid such misunderstanding, the later version is renamed to Easy Smart.

 

By the way, we can always read the datasheet from official website to learn more info about the product.

@Fae 

And is it possible to switch off LEDs with V4? It is mentioned in V5 user guide, but not in user guide for V4.

I'm afraid not. It is a tiny feature added in V5, but not for V4.

Best Regards!

@ganasta I just has "issues" with a TL-SG108E v4 - called "unmanaged pro switch" but it is not - it has an IP that was the same as my router and caused all sorts of pain!

 

i just jumped on it and changed it's IP - not what i called "unmanaged"! esp as you can port mirror, work with Vlans and enable loppback protection etc!
