Great switch, love gig speeds.

  • Summary: This switch does exactly what it is advertised to do. I am slightly disappointed that the software (included with this switch) is only compatible with Windows, not Mac. However if you want plug-and-play this device will do just that.

  • Summary: I have 11 of these in my old network in offices that have been expanded. They have been excellent 5 port (and a few of the 8 port variety (GS108Gev2). because they are semi-managed, they make it much easier to find and correct problems on the network.

Network monitoring, port mirroring review

kokomo483, Amazon
16 December 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this switch so that I can use port mirroring and monitor my home network. The initial setup required a Windows computer, which seems like a horrible design. Although, once I set it up, I was able to move it around with no problem.
