Yes, your network friends are perfectly right for a LAN environment,
I'm using it behind a cable modem configured at 512/128kbps
so one loss here and then is tolerable.
Let say my color scheme is for monitoring commercial broadband
But I've been careful to tune colors so you can easily distinguish
each from the other, at least including and below 6 packet loss
over 20.
