Still Has a Place In the Home

S. Shephard "Esteban", Amazon
29 July 2014
  • 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.

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.

Great switch for a home GbE system

Dan Colestock, Amazon
7 May 2014
  • Summary: I've wired up 3 residences now for broadband using CAT5e cable runs connected directly to one of these switches. They're simple plug-and-play unmanaged switches, providing solid, problem-free GbE service, and they take up a minimal amount of space, fitting nicely in a standard Leviton low-voltage wall box. The switch is designed to be wall-mounted with bottom slots, and has a convenient no-fan design.

Fast and Well Built

J. Walton "Up North", Amazon
24 April 2014
  • Summary: I got tired of replacing the Linksys/Cisco switches that only lasted a couple years before becoming intermittent. This Netgear switch is solid, runs cool and has worked flawlessly. I'd highly recommend this unit.

great product

killalot321, Ebay
2 January 2014
  • Summary: just plug it in on your network, and it will work. Simple to install, and really no setting up to it, as it is all plug and play, as long as have a router somewhere in your network.

One the first didn't work and I was told by Netgear it was defective, I got a second that didn't work either.

Mark C. Gibson, Amazon

  • Summary: I spent many hours with tech support trying to get this switch with my router. Worked only intermittently. Whne I was told by Netgear tech support that the switch was defective I replaced it with the same model. It didn't work either, same problem, "defective".

Plug and play

,, TigerDirect.com
9 October 2013
  • Summary: Every once in a while out of the box, some pieces of technology will not always work. This unit however works for me and my company just fine, and I have not had any issues. It even came with a power source. Do not blame a company for a simple wire being broken with a power supply.

the "Unmanaged plus" software is terrible

B. Jenkins "Jenkins", Amazon
29 September 2013
  • Summary: This review is for the GS116E. It is "Unmanaged Plus", which apparently means you can make a few config settings. The configuration software is terrible. There is NO WEB INTERFACE. There is only a Windows program. I can only get it to work on about 50% of the computers I install it on.
