    I’m not sure how old this news is, but I noticed today, that Qnap’s web site mentions a Qnap 10GigE switch with SFP+ and RJ-45 ports. It’s unmanaged, but maybe optimised for use with Qnap NAS boxes. The QSW-1208-8C

    Anyone used one yet?

    yes –
    I used it at the Maxx Digital booth at NAB. It’s great. Retail price is $589.
    Its unmanaged. This means no ability for link aggregation. But for a simple small network, it’s
    4 SFP+ ports, and 8 “shared” SFP+ and RJ45 ports. For those that don’t want to use a Twinax cable or any
    SFP+ fiber stuff, it’s just an 8 port 10G switch. It does Jumbo frames.
    Using the new Sonnet Solo 10G for Thunderbolt 3, I got 900 MB/sec Write and 1000 MB/sec READ thru this switch, and a thunderbolt 3 MacBook Pro to a QNAP TVS-882ST3
    The Sonnet Solo 10G is $199. It is NOT backwards to thunderbolt 2.

    Thanks Bob. Good to know.
    Was the QNAP TVS-882ST3 populated with hard disks or SSDs. I’ve very curious about this product as a storage for on location use. Mainly for weight.

    Also, the Sonnet web site doesn’t seem to have the Sonnet Solo 10GigE adapter.

    Hi –
    I had all Samsung 1TB SSD’s in the TVS-882ST3, connected with the iMac and Sonnet Solo 10G and new QNAP 10G switch. It was tiny, and fast – 1000 MB/sec R/W on the client, on this tiny box, and multiple people could connect at that speed.

    Its BRAND NEW. The Sonnet Solo 10G, the Sonnet eGPU, the Sonnet 10G PCIe card, the QNAP 10G PCIe card, the QNAP switch, are all brand new products, that were just shown a couple of days ago. They will all appear on
    the web sites very soon. At least, they are coming out now, and not 1 year from now.
