Be Aware of what the POE port Represents on this Switch

Jeff, Amazon
21 June 2015
  • 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.

Mirroring Disappointment

Anonymous, Newegg
11 May 2013
  • Summary: Very disappointed with the port "mirroring" behavior of vlan untagged members. It’s more like a one way window than a mirror (see cons). The mirroring behavior of vlan untagged members is in contradiction with the Software Administration Manual which states the following in the Multiple Port...
  • Pros: 1) Works out of the box (without needing any custom configuration) 2) Quiet (no fans) 3) Over 2 years of service
  • Cons: 1) Not desktop friendly (network ports/connections are in front). To be desktop friendly ports/connections should be in rear and status on front bezel. 2) Web configuration is a little slow to load. Some link based images are small and difficult to click on. For instance arrows in the VLAN Member...

Not SQUITE Smart

Adam Z., Newegg
16 February 2013
  • Summary: For a home or small business user that is only looking for basic managed functions, This works fine. If you need FULL VLAN support / assignment, try the HPJ9800A
  • Pros: The switch is borderline "smart" 3 VLAN's for VOIP and VIDEO, LAG, QOS, STP, speed and duplex control.
  • Cons: Its not a Full Layer2 managed device. VLAN's are auto assigned, cant set ports to tag/untag/trunk modes.

Works great as a Basic Switch...

fstcvc, Amazon
1 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to use with my Synology DS1812+ so I could set up link aggregation (802.3ad) which this switch supports. Spent way too much time trying to get it to work with that. Thought I'd save some money buying this unit but ended up buying a HP ProCurve 1810-8 instead (which I should have done...

Don't buy this for port rate limiting

Sean, Amazon
31 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this switch for one reason. I wanted to create a bandwidth limited wireless network for my bandwidth hog of a son. It turns out that the nice, simple ingress and egress port rate limiting in the GS108T-V1 has been removed from the GS108T-V2, which is what I received.

Nice Switch

Anonymous, Newegg
25 March 2011
  • Pros: This is an inexpensive feature rich switch. I found the features work well once I figured out what they do. I wanted to learn about VLANs and other things so I bought this. It allowed me to experiment. Its silent.
  • Cons: Switch will lockup once every 6 months or so. It has some auto-negotiation issues. They may be patched by now. It killed my throughput from 30Mbps down to 20Mbps on a 100Mb to 1Gb endpoints. Don't know why, but I'm replacing it for this issue.

OK switch, but SNMP support is useless

Matt, Amazon
1 July 2009
  • Summary: I'm a network engineer used to dealing with datacenter class equipment, so maybe my expectations are skewed... The switch itself works ok. But this is supposed to be a "managed" switch with SNMP support. I expected to be able to graph the traffic of my switch ports.

  • Summary: Bought this a year ago, now it is making a high pitched noise, never broken down or froze up, it's a shame about the noise though.

Netgear GS108Tv2 8 Port Gigabit Ethernet Smart Switch

kuchenmann, bewertungen.cyberport.de
7 January 2013
  • Summary: Grundsätzlich funktioniert der Switch. Allerdings wenn man eine bestimmte Funktion benötigt, könnte man unliebsame Überraschungen erleben. Z.B. Port Mirroring funktioniert sehr seltsam. Auf ungeraden Ports werden nur RX Pakete, auf geraden Ports nur TX Pakete gespiegelt.
