Summary: been using these & their predecessors for years in adverse environments subject to 0-130 degrees temps in outdoor enclosures. These work for me better than other brands because the MAC address tables seem to have a greater spec'd capacity than other mfgs that refuse to disclose what the table capacity is. This is important on a commercial network with hundreds of devices.
Summary: Netgear makes amazing equipment! solid construction and they stand behind their products. I have had a few failed switches and have had them exchanged with no problems as most of their equipment is sold with a life time warranty! Good stuff!
