Quality and Savings

David L. Inlow, Amazon

  • Summary: This switch is exactly as described. It was easy to install and make all of the connections. I upgraded the speed of my cable internet to maximum and had computers with 1000Mb NIC cards in them. I deleted the slower switches I had. I chose this particular model because I wired my home in all rooms with Cat 5e wiring and wanted to run at top speeds. My home network is now able to run the 1000Mb that I wanted.

Stay Away From This One

  • Summary: Do NOT buy this switch!!!! After many hours with NetGear and my IT guy we came to the conclusion that it wont work. It is a managed switch which you need their software. After many trys not one computer would go online.

Major component in my new central wiring closet

sptu "Steve", Amazon
24 August 2014
  • Summary: This compact unit is a major component in my new central wiring closet. Being only 11 1/2" long, it installed easily inside the 14" wide in-wall metal cabinet and worked immediately after powering up. The switch simply does its job without hitches or generating heat; just flashes its lights on the active ports. My experience was 5 stars. Only con: None of the ports are POI (Power Over Internet), which I knew before purchasing.

Still Has a Place In the Home

S. Shephard "Esteban", Amazon

  • Summary: This is getting a bit long in the tooth now days, but this is a gig-port switch, let's you do vlans and QoS, and aggregate a couple ports. I think the switch is great for home use, especially with a synology or other NAS solution that can take advantage of aggregated gigabit ports. The sweet spot is certainly those kinds of appliances in a wired home networking environment. I have it mounted in a Leviton Structured Media Cabinet.

  • Summary: This Ethernet Switch works really well. I had the regular consumer switches from the big box stores in the past but they seemed troublesome and failed a lot. I believe this is the Pro Series so they are not as attractive as the regular ones but work much better. If you go to the Netgear site you can download a PDF of all their many switches. This is one of their better switches from what I can see. It also has a larger buffer then the regular ones.

  • Summary: We have used the NETGEAR 16 port switch before and it has been very reliable, easy to use/configure, and transparent.

Plug and play

  • Summary: I had zero issues with this switch, which is exactly how it's supposed to be. There are no frills, but great performance and when you have suffered through a bad switch and replaced it with a good one like this netgear, it looks like the second coming. Works great.

Exercise Caution

Norville, Amazon
21 May 2014
  • Summary: This seller, Origin Micro, delivered a unit prepared for foreign markets. Inside the manufacturer's box was a power module that wouldn't plug into US AC outlets, and required 230 VAC, Taped on the outside of the NetGear box was an off-brand power module that would work on US outlets. The packaged literature was for English, French, German & Russian, only. This reinforces the uncertain origins theory. The software, ProSafe Plus, seemed to load, but never worked.

perfect switch for my growing network.

ibinpharteen, Ebay
14 May 2014
  • Summary: prior to this I replaced a TP-Link 10/100 switch and I kept thinking my network would have hiccups every now and then. The problem was a bit more pronounced with online videos from YouTube. Now since putting in the upgraded netgear switch it seems to be a bit more smoother now.
