Simple even for a novice

  • Excerpt: I use this with three laptops and a Qnap TS231 NAS for mobile downloading of large files from USB devices. (60 GB) I know very little about network setup but this was about as simple as you might imagine. It works well and allows three sources to transfer as fast as USB 2.0 will push data.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Reliable, Small

  • Summary: While this switch seems to be a good switch and many people have rated it high in the scores i must admit i find this switch as useful as a brick. About 2 year ago i bought this switch. While it was looked good and seems on the first instance i had it i had issues with IP address.

Good but 1 flaw

Joseph R., Newegg
10 May 2015
  • Summary: A PC connected to "picky" ethernet port connected at gigabit speed.
  • Pros: Gigabit speed. Small form factor. Lifetime warranty. Have been using for almost 6 months and is very fast for gigabit wired networking.
  • Cons: Was having trouble getting Xbox 360 to connect at faster than 10mbps. Moving ethernet cable to different port on this Netgear switch resolved the issue and connected at 100mbps. Hope this helps other people having this problem. Switch should not be this picky for speed auto negotiation.

  • Summary: Only people who will not run it over with a truck
  • Pros: It's a switch. Not only that, it's an Ethernet switch, even better it allows computers to talk to each other, and the best of all... It works..
  • Cons: You have to power it with the ac adapter for it to work. It stops working if you run it over with a truck. That also seems to void the warranty

My go-to switch

Glen P., Newegg
27 April 2015
  • Summary: I always keep one of these units on hand. Great for a quick expansion project, or when a customer has an old "fast" switch I can swap out for an easy speed boost.
  • Pros: Have installed and used about 10 of these and have never had a problem.
  • Cons: Doesn't go on sale often enough?

Fast, solid and inexpensive-

William B., Newegg
27 April 2015
  • Summary: I bought this to connect 4 HTPC systems that require Gigabit connections. I'm downporting to my old WRT54G- so that I can segment my Ethernet, while still keeping internet accessability on the Gigabit network.
  • Pros: Metal housing, nice power supply, seems well made, works perfectly for my Media Center and internet needs.
  • Cons: It won't clean my garage
