GUI Needs a ton of work in my opinion

Michael, Staples
26 February 2015
  • Summary: I bought this switch because I thought it would be great because it can do VLAN's, DHCP, and other stuff, but I was wrong. I do like that you can use a GUI instead of CLI to work with the unit. I am not sure why, but the software that you install for the product is basically useless.

Device works alright, support DOES NOT!

Mike McMahon, Amazon
22 February 2014
  • Summary: Received the switch earlier this week and spent last night setting it up. Noticed shortly thereafter that the switch was running pretty hot and contacted Netgear for support. They confirmed that there was an issue with it, but wanted to charge me for an Advance RMA.

Lame management software

Professor Wahoo, Staples
14 November 2013
  • Summary: The manual indicates you must configure your rounter so the unit uses IP# 192.168.0.x; this is an unexpected constraint. I did this to set it up, then switched back to my normal settings.

Buggy equipment or just a bad unit?

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 June 2012
  • 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.

Do your homework and make sure it will work in your environment

D. Stein, Amazon
30 June 2012
  • Summary: For years I've been a big fan of Netgear's ProSafe switches of the "dumb" variety. Cheap, simple, reliable, built like a tank, etc. So I thought I would give one of their smart switches a try.

Quality Issues with two orders.

COREGROUND, Amazon
26 July 2011
  • Summary: I ordered a switch.. Took it out of the pristine looking packaging and heard a clank when i picked it up. It powered up, but shut itself off. I investigated more and the heatsink was floating in the metal case. I was annoyed, but amazon had a replacement out in short order.

Maybe it's just mine but...

Phil U., Newegg
1 December 2010
  • Summary: I'm on the road right now and it's hung yet again. Today is the last straw. Based on other reviews talking about the reliability, I'm going to see if Netgear will replace it. I've had enough.
  • Pros: Nice feature set at a great price. Performs very well with multiple gigabit streams.
  • Cons: Have NEVER had a switch hang as often as this thing. Perhaps it's just mine but I have to power-cycle this thing at least once a month. Of course it seems to happen when I'm on the road - Murphy's Law and all.

died after two years

Chip R., Newegg
31 October 2010
  • Pros: Fine while it worked. Really like the auto-sense uplink feature.
  • Cons: I bought four Netgear Ethernet switches in Dec 2007, two from the "ProSafe" pro-sumer line. The GS108T-100NAS died about a year ago, Now the GS108 has died. The symptom in both cases is that the unit fails to power up. Fortunately, Netgear replaced the previously failed GS108T-100NAS under lifeti...

Does the job, partly

Timothy N., Newegg
26 April 2010
  • Pros: Easy to setup and get running. A good entry level switch
  • Cons: The web GUI died after about a week of use. It still routes packages, but unable to make any modifications using the GUI. Requires a reset.

User Review

  • Pros: Fast Newegg shipping, had it in 2 days. I liked the switch, was easy to configure. I wish I could have kept it.
  • Cons: Same problem as another person here. It would reboot itself if I touched it or moved it in any way. Reboot even if I brushed it. So, I wanted to keep it but sent it back for a refund. 2nd Netgear switch I have had a problem with rebooting. If it works for you, keep it. I will be shopping Newegg f...
