All I can say is,....in our group here in Sweden, 30 Cisco WS-C2960-8TC-L switch owner,every member say they have an improvement. Alot say,the improvement was as big as between Linn's Akurate and Klimax products.
If you have a good system-installation you here more of the improvement 😉,and of course also network-installation.
And YES,....alot have had earlier the "famous" Netgear GS108T,even with extra good quality linear power supply or medical grade Smps,or Ifi Ipower.
Go for it,it only cost between £50-70,and the exact modell number is Cisco WS-C2960-8TC-L.
And,the group I talk about in the beginning,have had this hobby,High-End Hifi Linn/Naim between 25 to 35 years. So they are no beginners,.....they have good hearing 😉😁👍🏻.
