RUN!

MINNEOLA D., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: These were rebooting for every single little change. For example, I entered "information services" in the switch info for the contact person. Applying rebooted the switch without it telling me "switch rebooting". This got me into changing the next thing without knowing the switch was rebooting, and losing my next changes because the switch was powering back up.
  • Pros: Rackmountable?
  • Cons: no ssh access - but I knew that part going in - what frustrates me is that the switch reboots without warning for every little change you make - even text fields which don't have any effect on any switch-port configuration.

works fine for small business

Michael D., Newegg

  • Summary: I have used these to hook via fiber (combo port by generic manuf.) from building to building. I have used them to power 12 NEC ip phones...check how much draw your phones are so as not to hook up too many. They sit in a closet so noise is not applicable. (knock on wood) They just run!
  • Pros: Small business can utilize this to run phones along with data. Combo ports are good for linking buildings/switches together. Rackmount ready. Gigabit ports for the big stuff!
  • Cons: needed a firmware update upon arrival to do what I wanted - minus egg.

Does what it's supposed to

mark h., Newegg

  • Pros: Does what it's supposed to do. 24 ports of POE 802.11af. I use these for POE cameras and I have had no problems. The management and monitoring software is nice
  • Cons: None, it just seems to do it's job

User Review

IPPBX, Walmart
22 January 2013
  • Summary: As an IP PBX integrator, I was surprised that I can found Rack-Mount product on Walmart.com. Netgear has reliable products. Warmart is reliable channel. They are a perfect match for me. Hopefully, Walmart.com will carry other enterprise products and has a portal for people like us, system integrator, services providers.

Great for IP Phones

Nathan, B&H Photo
6 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Only negative is it is only 100Megs on most ports. But for IP phones this is perfect if you aren't doing a pass through setup on the phones.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Poe On The 24 Ports
  • Cons: Only 100 Meg

Easy Install, Reliable Performance

Crescendo AV, B&H Photo
9 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Just finished a "Smart Home" installation utilizing Crestron electronics. There were 15 in-wall touch panels and a few other devices that receive power over Ethernet. This switch requires no setup, and truly was "Plug and Play". Much better than using single device PoE injectors!
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Reliable

Steaming Pile of Chips

Melissa K., Newegg
3 May 2012
  • Summary: I have other Netgear stuff that I like very much. I'm not super fond of the web interface being the only option and loathe that there is no serial port for recovery of the device. This device really only has PoE and the uplinks going for it in my opinion. Beyond that, it is horrible. I'd suggest to someone not getting this specifically for only VoIP traffic to look elsewhere, such as one of their switches with all gig ports for not that much more.
  • Pros: - Low cost PoE solution for a VoIP network
  • Cons: - Firmware update process on my v1 of this went badly - even if proper process followed, it is risky (just search online...I'm not the only one)

Good until it dies

Charles H., Newegg
4 October 2011
  • Pros: PoE, good uplink options, management interface, lifetime warranty...seems like a perfect choice for an office with 10-20 devices including VoIP phones. I'd rate it four eggs based on the features.
  • Cons: As others have commented, the fan in these things are loud...you don't want to share an office with it.
