Solid POE switch

Anonymous, Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Got this switch powering 4 PoE HD IP cameras for 2 years running now. Performance has been exactly what you would want - plug it in and forget about it. The lifetime warranty and gigabit ports justify the price, and when combined with Newegg promo code, it is cheaper than buying it on auction without a warranty.
  • Pros: Solid construction, fan-less, 50W POE, Lifetime warranty
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: Functions flawlessly. Typical Netgear reliability. I don't know why Ebay demands at least 100 characters for a review. What else can you say about a switch??

a absolutely excellent investment.

  • 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...

Simple and solid

Matthew B., Newegg

  • Summary: Will edit later after longer period of use. At this time, PoE has not been used.
  • Pros: Installation was flawless. Hooked into router and handling 3 devices almost instantaneously. ProSafe warranty makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
  • Cons: I wish switches were sold with 1 additional port to cover the router connection; I hate how I can only attach 7 devices with my 8-port switch. But that is not specific to this product, rather the market in general.

Nice, cheap POE Gig Switch

Mitch, B&H Photo
1 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Adding a home NAS and 802.11n access points; needed more throughput in the network to accommodate them. The GS108P is a good solution for a cheap, unmanaged switch for a small/home network. Only four of the ports are POE, but I only have two access points at present. That's good, because the switch doesn't have a whole lot of power to spare. My old ProSafe 10/100 used to fault on the the third AP (a/b/g) but I haven't seen this one fault yet, so that's good new so far.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Inexpensive, Quiet, Reliable, Seems Well Made
  • Cons: Only 4 POE Ports

Fast and POE

Jose C., Newegg
4 April 2011
  • Summary: rma
  • Pros: Fast and POE, feels solid
  • Cons: very finicky network after installing this switch, cannot get computers to renew ip addresses with switch installed and, needed to reboot the switch everytime I made any changes, also makes the netgear router's cpu load skyrocket evertime there is network activity, (network was fine connecting directly to the router).

Does not support VLANs

Anonymous, Newegg
23 November 2010
  • Summary: Gave this switch 3 eggs because of all the trouble Netgear gave me over this switch. If you only need a well built gigabit switch that has 4 PoE ports, this would probably be a good choice.
  • Pros: Very well built gigabit switch. PoE is great.
  • Cons: The data sheet on Netgear's website clearly shows a network diagram demonstrating how you can use this switch to create separate VLANs using this switch to segment your network - which is one of the main reasons I needed it for. Just type in GS108P in the search box on the Netgear home page and click on the first or second link that comes up and you will see a diagram that shows the switch being used to create two separate VLANs. I spent an hour on the phone with Netg...
