Unifi Switch Comparison

The Ubiquiti Support site has an official comparison:

https://help.ubnt.com/hc/en-us/articles/360037335694-UniFi-Switch-Model-Comparison

However that page sorts the data by generation and form factor. This page formats the data differently, so you can compare Gen1 vs Gen2 for each product category.

Below is considered unofficial, and may be out of date. Information is taken from the Ubiquiti Support site, linked above, and/or the Ubiquiti US Store https://store.ui.com (GA products only).

1)
This switch has the same SoC as the Gen 2 Pro switches, and shares their Layer 3 Routing features.
2) , 3) , 4) , 5) , 6) , 8)
UI lists the "POE Budget" and "PSU Wattage" as being the same for many products. The data shown here is calculated based on the Max Power Consumption including and excluding POE Output, and/or the PSU Wattage, as shown on the product datasheets and Unifi store.
7)
The US-L2-24 and US-L2-48 were Ubiquiti's first attempt at a "Generation 2" but were abandoned - they sold the remaining EA stock as GA, which is why it is listed here.
