Summary: Interesting switch, and very misleading. Most people associate a yellow port providing Power Over Ethernet (POE), and this is actually a normal and USUALLY a valid assumption. It is not the case with the GS108T GB Smart Switch.
Summary: It worked great for one week, now I'm having repeated network issues with it. I'll have to call support to get it replaced. It keeps shutting off ports by itself and now this morning I've lost all connections to it including the ability to login to it to see why the switch is not working.

Pros: Seem to work GREAT!
Cons: To use management software, you have to accept installation of Adobe AIR and Adobe's licenses giving them the right to serve ads and sell your IP address, and give access to your information to third parties which they don't promise to control at all. Have to allow installation of Java in your br...
