I'm not debating the price or whether or not it should be included with the switch. You can judge the price for yourself, and if you wanted it included with the switch you can just order the TEG-S24G which includes these brackets. I ordered the TEG-S24DG 24-port switch and these brackets because it was about $20 less than buying the rack mount version for the identical product.
So, these brackets do have beveled screw holes, so when you screw them into the switch they self center and line up perfectly. Just screw them in loosely until you have all 4 in (per side) and then tighten.They are sturdy, they look good, the finish matches the switch, and they'll work on other products too, although the finish might not match. Simple, sturdy, and as attractive as a rack ear can be. Five stars, as they were essentially free (over buying the rack version) and work as advertised.
They fit perfectly. All the mounting holes are aligned properly, even though this is intended for TRENDnet switches.
I can't complain about the finish, as it should match TRENDnet switches. The finish quality is pretty good. It is a matte black.
The metal is thick, and should support the weight of any network switch that it will fit on.
The only minor complaint is that the metalwork is basic. The edges are not buffed, so they are sharp. The holes are not tapered or countersunk - its just a plain hole. It is literally just a bent piece of metal with a couple holes. But... It gets the job done. And how often will you thoroughly examine these brackets?
You are not buying this because of the quality of the metalwork. You want to get your 11 inch switch mounted in a rack, and get on to your next project. This gets the job done. And its not like you have many choices... (literally no other choice on amazon for a 4 hole 2cm square mounting pattern on a 11in switch)
The included photo shows this kit installed on a D-Link DGS-1024D, in a RAST rack.
That said, it's a nice piece of bent metal and I'm really happy they designed the switch to be rack mountable (and not). Hopefully I can get them to send me some replacement screws.
For whatever reason, mounting ears are very expensive, and I can only feel like they are expensive because they can be. All they are is two pieces of bent metal with holes drilled in them.
I need to flush-mount a switch to a panel, and because the switch was missing keyholes on the bottom, these were necessary. They worked great for this purpose. The paint finish is good, and the metal is sturdy.
The reasons it earned 4 stars...
#1. The holes etc... are where they should be. No rude surprises, everything lines up.
#2. The finish is dead on fine. No big noticeable flaws.
#3. The metal is of sufficient strength to support the switch fully populated with cable.
#4. The holes to mount it to the switch line up in the normal rack configuration, I can also turn the ears 90 degrees to wall mount, or 180 degrees to push the front of the switch proud of the rack if I want to. This mounting flexibility means I have mounting options even if I don't have a rack.
#5. The holes to mount it to the rack are exactly where they belong, sized to accept standard rack screw sizes, including M6, and 10-32 hardware.
#6. The screw holes are slightly elongated to accomodate manufacturing variances among rack vendors. Some rack mount tabs are not so slotted, and I have in the past (old Netgear) had to elongate the screw holes to accomodate particularly APC Shark Racks.
The reasons I cannot give this 5 stars is because.
#1. They are so stinking basic a 12 year old in Jr. High shop class could get these right.
#2. They should have been included in the package with the switch in the first place. It IS annoying that I have to pay extra for the rack mount hardware for something designed to be, well rack mountable. Yes I know a LOT of switch MFGs are doing that now, and TrendNET is a lower cost MFG, but this is just an annoying corner to cut... I have used switches and rack / desktop mountable network devices from Netgear, SMC, TP-Link and they all included the rack mount kit. No clue why TrendNET decided to leave them out of the switch packaging.
Do yourself a favor and put them on your device on a solid surface where dropped screws can be easily controlled. They are tiny little critters.
