Anyone gonna consider upgrading their whole home network to 10gbit soon? Its getting more and more affordable. I may make the jump very soon myself.

Huh? Coaxial is what runs into your house into your cable modem. Your cable modem converts it then to Ethernet. This switch is for 10Gbit Ethernet home networking, not Coxial.

Holy shit, what do you need a 10G LAN for XD
Though, funnily enough a guy I used to work with recently had the pleasure of getting Aruba gear set up at his place. He's the family network admin, so he has fiber trunks with 1G LH SFPs in the Aruba gear running between his place and his other relative's houses (they all live in the same area). I should ask him what his plan for upgrading is.

My 10Gbit switch just showed up today actually. About to hook it up. I'm building a 10gbit NAS server so I want to be able to max out the speeds when I read or write files to my NAS.

That... sounds pretty awesome, actually. Mind posting some benchmarks when it's all up? :D

The NAS setup I was is gonna be pricey...I need to save up some money first. I want like an 8x12TB Setup in Raid 10.
I will post screenshots and benchmarks for sure, just as soon as I get it.

I did get the new 10gbit switch all setup. So my home network is fully 10gbit as I rewired the house with Cat6e recently. Now I just need a massive NAS to really take advantage of the speeds!
