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 product

  • 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.

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.

Be careful: Power adapters concerns are VERY valid

DANNY, TigerDirect.com
29 January 2013
  • Summary: I purchased 5 of these units. Out of the box, 4 worked and 1 appeared to work but had a faulty power adapter. The power light was on for the unit but no traffic was coming through the switch. After checking everything, I remembered hearing about the power adapter in a review so I swapped it with another unit and it started working. Problem: NetGear would not make replacing the unit easy.

Out of the box, Up and running!

Kiddnitro,, TigerDirect.com
20 January 2013
  • Summary: Handles all of my traffic well and without all of the crashes I have had with other brands. Highly recommended!! Always get a bigger (more ports) switch than you need because needs rarely decrease, rather they increase! Works great thanks Netgear!

NO Power

,, TigerDirect.com
24 October 2012
  • Summary: This is the first product I have purchased that does not include the power source to run it. I now have to go out and buy a compatible power source. Go ahead and charge me for the power but don't ship the thing without a way to use it out of the box.

Excellent smart gigabit Ethernet switch

quantumflux, Ebay
1 April 2012
  • Summary: I bought this gigabit switch to upgrade from a 100kbps network to a gigabit network. Turns out this a great Ethernet switch. It is intelligent, so it figures out which ports are exchanging data at a given moment, and then dynamically optimizes data routing for lowest network overhead. So for instance, if port 1 and 3 are exchanging data , and port 2 and 4, it will create a "direct connect" between 1/3 parallel to the 2/4 connection at maximum speed for each group.

Great switch

*gonzie*, Ebay
7 February 2012
  • Summary: Good switch. Doesn't run too hot, no fan. Great transfer speeds and works well under very heavy load. For what I paid, I can live without managing the switch. Also, the main reason that I bought this switch (other than Gigabit, of course) is that it consumes very little power. It runs at approximately 25 watts, which is much better than my old 10/100 24-port switch.
