Summary: This product does not work! The support from netgear was non existent. I have hundreds of switches and POE devices installed over the years. I read the spec seat from Netgear, I used products with the exact specifications they claim this supports. IT DON'T WORK! I expected more from NetGear.
Summary: Everything arrived on time & in full-retail packaging. I only took off one star because while I like NetGear products, and have no doubt this would have been included in that, we never used it.
Rugged, Flexible, Reliable. Easy to use and operate.

Summary: Purchased to provide power to IP cameras and extend a long run. This unit has (4) POE ports and (4) non powered ports. The overall networking environment has 10/100M and 10/100/1000M mixed items and the GS108P handles the mix of 100Mb and 1Gb POE devices.
Summary: I have several devices that need PoE. This switch is great for powering up devices so I don't need to use power warts. A word of caution, you can only run 3 devices at full PoE load, it would which is in the specs if you know what your looking for.
Summary: Currently powering an Avaya 9600 VOIP phone and a Cisco 1242(ABG) WAP. I will test with a Cisco 7900 colour phone and another Cisco WAP(1311) shortly. Also looking into a POE IP Camera(will remove one WAP) in teh next few months. It has more POE power(50W)than the FS108P(about 32W).
Summary: a little giant poe switch. works flawlessly and provides a stable throughput. The one thing netgear could have done to excel this already excellent solution could be to provide some kind of rackmount setup. This is a small switch but it definitely belongs with the big boy switches... lol
Summary: This switch performs perfectly. I am using it in my home media panel. The size of the switch really works well in that environment, or any application where space is limited. The construction is all metal on the outside, very solid and durable.
