It's good for the price

Eric Siron, Newegg

  • Pros: For what you pay, you get quite a bit. I was specifically looking for 801.q VLAN tagging and LACP, both of which it has and does well.
  • Cons: Ports shut off on this switch, seemingly at random, and won't come back on until you power-cycle the unit. The logs give no indication of why it shut them off.

good for small businesses

  • Summary: I've used Netgear at all my clients office, from small 8 port gig switches to the 48 port. Webgui has gotten better throughout the years as well as their detection software. netgear fits good in the middle pack.
  • Pros: more than enough for your basic office and has some cool features should you have an onsite techy ;) lifetime warranty its a huge plus and this new 27x7 for 1 year was a nice surprise. comes with rack mounting or wall mounting brackets
  • Cons: none, i mean i wouldn't pay the retail pricing that newegg list of $250. if you can get it for under $200, its a deal

I love NETGEAR

James K., Newegg

  • Summary: It's nice that you can very quickly and easily identify the speed at which the device has connected for debugging purposes. It does also have an extensive UI. It is also rack mountable via included hardware.
  • Pros: It's an excellent product all around. I needed a solution that would allow more gigabit devices on my LAN. This does it all and it's very fast. It's also offers a high level of customization, but to be honest I'm not utilizing much of it.
  • Cons: N/A

30 May 2012

Does not comply with specs

Pascal B., Newegg
22 May 2012
  • Summary: Apparently this unit ships as GS716T v2. Netgear support confirmed that this is indeed the NETGEAR ProSafe GS716T-200NAS. Not very evident from the name since I know that the GS716T does not support IGMP snooping...
  • Pros: Cheap gigabit switch
  • Cons: Specs claim it supports IGMP snooping, which is the main reason I purchased it (besides gigabit). Well, it does not work. Spent hours with Netgear "advanced" support on the phone to explain them how IGMP snooping should work, and how it does not work on this switch. May keep it just as a cheap gi...

Dissapointed

Matthew M., Newegg
27 January 2012
  • Summary: The fan noise is not an issues for me since the switch is in the basement corner and out of the way. On a whole it works as intended but there a some real issues with this. 1. The password to log into the web interface is clear text. Snort picked it up and sure enough there's the password.
  • Pros: Smart switch. Port mirroring, tons of features.
  • Cons: Passes password for the switch in clear text.
