Looking for some feedback before biting the bullet on buying a new switch.
Currently using a lot of Mikrotik around me (router and wireless; RB1100AHx2, RB850Gx2, RB951G-2HPnD, RB912UAG-5HPnD + R11e-2HPnD) and the time has come for me to upgrade my switching appliance. Currently my switches are all HP based but I would love to be able to manage everything from WinBox, however I'm having some reservations as to whether Mikrotik will deliver in the switching department. The lack of positive reviews and experiences (or any besides configuration issues on these forums really) on the CRS226 doesn't help either.
The alternative buy would be the HP V1910-24G (pricewise virtually no difference) which I have successfully deployed next to some units from the 1810-series elsewhere in the network, but basically I'm looking for an excuse to buy the Mikrotik. Please note I will use this as a pure switch, not as some hybrid router/switch.
Biggest issue for me is the lack of LACP support on the CRS-series for my Synology NAS. For the short term this doesn't matter because I have a bottleneck elsewhere which I need to solve before reaping any benefit from such a configuration, however when I will be re-cabling parts of my network it will become an issue. An indication that this feature is on the roadmap for the foreseeable future would lower barrier into ordering the CRS significantly.
Second thing I need is rock solid VLAN.
ACL is a nice to have (hence the 226 rather than the 125). Any other issues I can probably deal with or solve elsewhere in the network.
Experiences and/or buying advice would be much appreciated.
