YuanLey YS25-0402 Fanless 4-port 2.5GbE 2-port 10GbE Switch Review

This is the first switch review in a new series. We found this new 4-port 2.5GbE and 2-port SFP+ 10GbE switches on Amazon for under $69 and decided to give it a try. It feels a bit like the YuanLey YS25-0402 is trying to take over the role of the cheap Netgear switch in the 2.5GbE space. While this is far from the $20 4-port 1GbE switch, it offers 7.5x the switching capacity at around 3.5x the price. Best of all, it is fanless.

We featured this video in our September 2023 mini-round-up of fanless 2.5GbE switches that you can find here:

We have also added this switch to the  Ultimate Cheap Fanless 2.5GbE Switch Buyer’s Guide where we have now listed 32 models and we already have 5 more switches tested, but not on that list. Bookmark that page to get the latest, we will like all of these reviews from that page.

YuanLey YS25-0402 Overview

On the front of the switch, one can see four 2.5GbE ports and two SFP+ ports. This is a very small footprint switch that can be Velcro mounted just about anywhere.

The SFP+ ports are nice to have as an uplink. While this is not a huge number of ports, a small switch is all many folks need for a small office or home. One SFP+ port for a PC, one for a NAS, and then four for other devices on the network.

The switch itself is not much deeper than a SFP+ cage inside the switch as we can see from this side view.

The big pad between the PCB and the chassis is exactly that. There is not a big chip or anything on the bottom side of the switch, it is just there to aid in thermal performance. Here is another angle looking from the front.
