some applications and new multimedia services do not work if multicast is filtered.
(Years ago this was a reason for me to swap out such switches because a non configurable multicast filter broke multicast imaging)
~200â‚¬ for this devices is OK (today you can get a unmanageable 12 port Gbit for ~120â‚¬)
Another point is how noisy is the switch (if not located in a dedicated room)
