Summary: Very easy to configure and does exactly what I need. I wanted to connect my PC and WHS at Gb speeds but I also needed to configure a port for 10/Half to support my DishDVR. I've tried connecting the DVR to other devices with Auto Sense and it never seems to work. Compact little device that does what I need.
Summary: I purchased this switch to use with the structured wiring in my home. It nicely wall-mounts with the included anchors next to the wiring box. I am a former network engineer, and this switch has a rather impressive set of features. As others have noted, the SNMP support is dated-- but the rest of the features (port mirroring, VLAN, rapid spanning tree, link aggregation) are now available at a price point which only a short time ago was what an unmanaged gigabit switch...
Summary: This switch replaced a 5 port non-smart (?) Netgear switch (GS105) and I like the ability that this one has to see and control better the traffic going through it :-) It helped me diagnose a network issue in minutes because of its capabilities :-)
Awesome Product. Honestly surprising you can get them at this price.

Summary: First of all, I have never had any metal-case Netgear switches fail. Ever. I and my businesses have had probably 100 all together and they all either still work or worked when taken out of service. This is my first GS108T, however. Excellent managed switch for the price. Does everything you'd expect (I just needed VLAN support) and, in my case, more. You can power the switch with PoE, which I think is probably implied or stated in the description but I did not see that.
Great for getting rid of Google Fiber Network Box (Hate that thing)

Summary: I bought this switch because I needed to get rid of my Google Fiber Network Box (that thing is horendous for configuration options.) I had read that you could be rid of that beast by putting a managed switch in line. Being a network engineer I understand managed switch better than the average consumer but with very detailed walkthroughs on configuring this switch for google fiber even a novice could set it up.
