Differences between the GS910 and GS920 Series of Unmanaged Switches

What are the major differences between the GS910 and GS920 Series of Unmanaged Switches?

Both the GS910 and GS920 Series of Gigabit Ethernet Switches are described as unmanaged – so what is the difference between the two series? 
Both are unmanaged switches, however they both feature a level of configuration via front panel DIP switches. The GS920 has more configuration options than the GS910 Series.
The GS920 Series has the following functionality over and above the GS910 Series.
  • The Switch can pass or block multi-cast packets. With multi-cast forwarding enabled packet types such as EAP, BPDU and others are allowed to pass through the switch.
  • The Switch can be programmed to enable flooding. When Flooding is enabled, all packet types including BPDU packets are allowed to pass through the switch with just a few exceptions.
  • Ports can be manually configured for speed, duplex and MDI/MDI-X.
Both Switches allow the user to enable/or disable the Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) and both Switches provide Loop Detection and Prevention.
