Disappointed

FLD, Office Depot

  • Excerpt: I was real excited when I purchased this modem router, I thought I got a good one. I do like a lot of the features in the software program that came with it. It shows all the things that are connected and you can name them. But, it works good with 7 of my Panasonic security cameras but the 2 outdoor ones that I gave $1200 for some reason won't work with this router and I am very disappointed.

Was great until it stopped working.

  • Excerpt: For 14 months it performed flawlessly. Then one morning my network was down. I checked everything and the power light was on but the port lights were off. After shooting the problem I determined that the device had failed. Since it has a two year guarantee I contacted their tech support and they are in the process of replacing the switch. Unfortunately, I could not wait for the replacement so I purchased this replacement.
  • Pros: Easily Expanded, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Small
  • Cons: Failure after 14 months

The Netgear GS608 8 Port Gigabit Switch - Can Be a Good Option, But Check Your Version Number

Amazon
19 March 2009
  • Summary: is a good product with nice clean lines. The one I have actually works flawlessly for my needs. The problem I have is that I have noticed that there is a wide variation in performance depending on the version of the switch that you get. If you have a v1, you will not get full jumbo packet support, thereby limiting you to 20 MBps. If you have v2, you will get full jumbo packet support, but non-windows computers seem to have hardware issues interfacing with the ports.

Warranty support is not very easy to get

Garth, Staples

  • Excerpt: I bought the same device about 10 months ago. It started acting up, so I got a new one. When I called Netgear about the warranty on the older one, they say they won't do anything about the warranty until I put the defective one back in my network, observe issues, and then let them debug it over the phone. So, someday when I don't have real work to do, I need to spend working with Netgear.
  • Pros: Easily Expanded, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Small
  • Cons: Debug before warranty, Unreliable

Failed After 12 months, replaced and failed again.

Mr Martin C Clay, Amazon
8 December 2014
  • Summary: I'm just looking for an alternative to replace this switch. I have already had one fail and it looks like this one is dying too now. I don't want to bash Netgear stuff it's usually very good. Unfortunately this switch has lasted about 12 months before it starts to throw up problems. Today all lights went orange to denote 100mbit connections. I ran a soeed test on my imac on my 152mbit virgin connection and got 90mbit.

Netgear GS608 v3

JohnS, Amazon
25 September 2013
  • Summary: Failed after 2 years. Seems to be consistent with other reviews. Prior to failure, seems to have worked well in my domestic network. No sockets to wall-mount and rather weird & bulky UK plug would be the other issues of note.

Netgear - GS608 - 8-Port Gigabit Network Switch

Zofia, pricebat.ca
25 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Low-cost, worked effectively to commence with, 8-port gigabit connectivity. Very good switch till it died. After about two year the unit started to fail at gigabit speeds, devices which supported it would begin to bounce between one hundred-complete and 1000-full which slowly got worse. Would have RMA'd the unit but warranty repair service was practically the expense of purchasing a new switch.

Netgear - GS608 - 8-Port Gigabit Network Switch

  • Excerpt: Sleek design, reasonable price Light weight permits the cabling to control it's orientation. Ports initially connected at 1Gbps auto downgraded to 100Mbps. Power cycling brings back some of the ports but not all. These are for 1Gbps clients that previously connected reliably at 1Gbps with my old Netgear Gigabit switch (FS108). There is certainly a marketplace for trusted, properly created SOHO networking gear.

  • Excerpt: Netgear GS608 v2 is sleek and rapid. Not ugly like other manufactures switches. Cost with rebate is fantastic. Started to resetting itself for no reason, now practically daily.I unplug power supply for a bit and from time to time would fix it. It doesn't seam like it is more than heating. I also keep it on the stand for improved airflow.The energy supplied diedƒnd netgear product with dead power provide) Their help is horrible!RMA'ing the complete factor.

Netgear - GS608 - 8-Port Gigabit Network Switch

Caresse, pricebat.ca
29 June 2012
  • Excerpt: It is fairly inexpensive for a 10럼⿘ Switch I have had experiences exactly where specific computers with Gigabit LAN controllers would not perform to this switch. The most current a single was an ASUS M2A-VM motherboard with a Realtek RTL8168䮟 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC that would only attempt to connect at 100Mb and then fail.
