CRS305 - Bent switchports (Quality issue)

Tue Aug 13, 2019 8:39 pm


I ordered three CRS305-1G-4S+IN Switches, all of them seem to have bent SFP ports and one bent RJ45 port.
Could someone tell me if this is normal? Please look up the following photo:

this is normal you will see exactly the same production tollerance on every device. I mean also on every vendor.
When you solder a through hole or SMD component onto PCB you need larger holes than the pin or larger pads than the pin. This is necessary that the component placing roboter can place the components and also that the solder can flow through. So a little bit of missalignment of the components is completly normal and has nothing to do with quality or wrong productions processes.

Mostly it is as @Tobei has described. There are no problems in photos you have attached. In case you see (receive) device with bent case, broken ports or other parts etc. visual damages, let us know.
