Never buy this switch or Netgear products

Priyank G., Newegg
23 November 2015
  • Summary: Please do not buy this switch.
  • Pros: Easy setup
  • Cons: Died after 1 year. Called customer support but they asked for $79 support for 6 months. I will try to call them again to find out how to get a replacement unit.

Didn't make it to 1.5 years

Chad L., Newegg
7 August 2015
  • Summary: Switched randomly failed while it was in use. After narrowing the problem down to just the devices running off of this switch, I noticed the power LED was lit and none of the LAN LEDs were. Rebooting did not solve it even after cooling down--and there is no reset switch or anything of the sort.
  • Pros: - Compact - Has color-labeled QOS ports - Has dedicated on/off switch
  • Cons: - Did not last more than 1 year and 6 months. I have seen switches last up to 1, sometimes 2 decades. Granted, this is a consumer-level product--but that doesn't mean it should fail in less than 2 years. Do not buy! - Runs rather hot - Chassis is made of plastic

Terrible

Mr. V., Newegg
11 March 2015
  • Pros: None that I found
  • Cons: I bought this to wire into my entertainment center to give network access to things like my DVR, Satellite box, TV, etc etc. The hub has plenty of room to breathe, it's not like it could have gotten hot. It took me a few hours to get everything put back into place and the unit lasted about a mont...

Excellent switch

Anthony H., Newegg
10 March 2015
  • Summary: I bought this switch to be able to connect a PC, my Smart TV and My Hopper to the internet. I have several computers all in different rooms that are all hardwired to my router. I didn't want to have run 3 more lines from router to the living room so I used the PC cable that was already there and...
  • Pros: Cheap. Reliable. Does what it is supposed to. What more could you ask for?
  • Cons: No cons yet.

Works Great, Paired with Netgear Router

Lawrence S., Newegg
19 February 2015
  • Summary: Nice, small box. Wall mounts with a couple of screws.
  • Pros: I recently set up a home classroom with four desktop computers. The existing patch cables were not long enough to reach the router, so I went with this solution rather than buying a bundle of 30' patch cables and I'm glad I did. The network has been rock solid and seems more stable and responsive...

Great little switch

Mark T., Newegg
27 November 2014
  • Summary: If you know ahead of time what you are purchasing (like I did) then I would think no one would have any issue with this switch. The QOS can be a PRO for some people and a CON for others.
  • Pros: This switch is very reliable and easy to use and great value. It has built in QOS (Quality of Service) which can be very handy if you have a child running online gaming and sucking down all your bandwidth, or if you use VOIP.
  • Cons: The QOS can also be a con if you do not want it because you cannot disable it.

13 October 2014
  • Summary: For those of you who might not know, this device essentially splits the internet/network connection coming out of your wall so you can put run it to several devices at the same time.
