Summary: Delivered next day as promised, a solid switch that exceeds the needs for a small business. The managed aspect of the switch is a plus for our off site IT vendor to remote in and manage our network. We are very pleased with all of the NetGear propducts in our office.
Summary: NETGEAR ProSafe Smart Switches fills the gap between unmanaged and fully managed switches. The family of ProSafe Smart Switches is designed for growing businesses that want control over their network without the cost and complexity of a full Layer 2/Layer 3-management implementation.
Summary: This is the second FS726 I have bought, and they both are rock-solid performers for the price. Never down, nice VLAN features, fast enough for most apps. On top of that, they are rack-mountable, easy to configure, and cheap.
Summary: I was looking for a replacement for my 24 port gigabit switch that took a lightning strike. Found this one but after receiving it only has 2 gigabit ports the rest are 10/100, I guess I can live with it but I wouldn't have purchased if the description was more clear. really like the manageability.
Summary: I'm sure you've all heard the adage, "If something seems too good to be true, it probably isn't" - well that applies to the NetGear FS726TNA. It appears to be an attractively priced "smart switch" to use NetGear's terminology, and offers some management capability, including SNMP and STP, we are told, with the addition of a firmware upgrade, available Q2, 2005.
Summary: I purchased this switch when Netgear was offering a free ipod nano as a rebate. More than two months after submitting my rebate and having it approved, Netgear has still not sent my rebate. I have sent multiple emails and tried to call NetGear and the rebate center directly, but still the rebate has not arrived as promised. Therefore I cannot recommend any product from Netgear as the company does not honor its own terms and conditions.
