  • Excerpt: I had to power off then on at least twice a day. I purchased one of these about 6 months ago and ended up taking it back also.

Kista's Review

Daryl K., Newegg
13 March 2009
  • Summary: gs108 still running quite excellent but I'm off to find another brand to replace this one. I'm running off of another switch so if I loose one more port this switch will be rendered useless at giga speeds.
  • Pros: Read other review
  • Cons: update... I have now lost a total of 3 ports that won't run giga speeds. I've tried different brand cables cat 5e and also cat 6.

GS105 v3's have issues

Anonymous, Newegg
4 March 2009
  • Summary: These should be recalled IMO.
  • Pros: Old GS105 v2's (same item # here at newegg) are GREAT!
  • Cons: New GS105 v3's that I received last month and this month, do not negotiate gigabit to our dell precision t3400 / 390 pc's, they negotiate gigabit to our core switch, but not to the pc's, pc's work fine straight to the core switch.

Nothing "Pro" or "Safe" about it

Richard C., Newegg
7 January 2009
  • Summary: A 50% failure rate is unacceptable. I used to think Netgear made dependable products. Either they've started cutting corners, or they just laid an egg with this one. I will definitely think twice before ordering another product of theirs.
  • Pros: When it works, it is, in fact, Gigabit. *Feels* high-quality.
  • Cons: Heavy, quality feel belies the shoddy workmanship inside. Our office bought 4 of these, 2 of them died.

Schlicht und einfach unbrauchbar.

Detrée, Christoph, Amazon
2 June 2014
  • Summary: Leider ist die Qualität der Netzwerkbuchsen so schlecht, dass jedes eingesetzte Ethernetkabel mechanische Kontaktschwierigkeiten hatte. Ohne einen zuverlässigen mechanischen Kontakt funktionieren kabelgebundene Netzwerkverbindungen leider nicht - daher: Unbrauchbar. Ein LevelOne GSW-0807 Gigabit Switch, der von mir als Ersatz gekauft wurde funktioniert hingegen mit den gleichen Ethernetkabeln problemlos.

Gleicher fehler

C. Weber, Amazon
9 May 2014
  • Summary: Zuerst war ich angetan: Guter Preis, Metall, schnell. Nach 8 Monaten hat der Switch aber den Geist aufgegeben. Der Fehler wurde hier schon oft beschrieben. Anscheinend eine Art Wackelkontakt an den Ports. Ich rate dringend von dem Produkt ab.
