This Was A Great Deal And The Price Was Right.

FREDERICK FRANZELLA, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this switch I have multi camera systems and my 8 port switch was getting filled up. i thought I was going to have problems because it looked so complex but I called Netgear up and they told me just plug the device right in. No problems at all I would recommend this switch.

Failed after 2 days

TimTech, Amazon
7 days ago
  • Summary: Needed a 16 port switch to handle all my internet providers coming into the firewall. after 2 days the switch froze. i rebooted it and it worked fine until the next day. then it began to freeze again. Netgear does have good switches, i own other models and they work really well. Also had an issue assigning it an ip address. it seems to have been pre-configured(like it was recently used and returned) or it was just Flawed from the very start.

Good Value

  • Summary: Good value, easy setup, ability to monitor port performance, Vlan support and more. I have only had it installed for a couple of months so I can't comment on reliability yet.

With Managed I am no longer working in the dark.

HB Blue, Amazon

  • Summary: A managed switch allows so many options and so much control that regular switches cannot provide. I love the ability to monitor the performance of all of my ports, information that allows me to track down problems even before I would normally be aware of problems. One of my IP phones decided to change its communication to half-duplex, a fact I would have never known with an unmanaged switch. All ports can be labeled and their function viewed from any PC in the house.

99 problems but a switch ain't one.

epikbob, Amazon

  • Summary: Five of us pooled out money and purchased this switch for a coworker who lost his home switch due to a lightning storm. I "tested" the product before we gifted it. (Who want's to gift a dead switch amirite?). I noticed right off the bat that this switch was silent. Dead. Quiet. I thought it would have a fan, but we received a fanless model. This switch has all of the listed features, and is working great for routing packets where they need to go.

Great Smart Switch!

E. M. Rosa, Amazon

  • Summary: (1) Why I bought it: I purchased the GS716T to use mostly as an unmanaged gigabit switch, but I was looking for a few extra options such as QoS, VLAN, port security, etc. This switch is used on my home network with video streaming, VOIP, and web browsing. (2) Cost: At under $238, it's a fair price for the quality and features. Other vendors on the internet have this switch for approximately the same price.

  • Summary: great managed switch for the SOHO. love the stats and the management interface. network is really running faster than before with 5 daisy chained 5 port GIG-E switches. super quiet unlike my Trendnet 16 port switch which sounds like a jet engine.

Good Smart Switch

Fields, Amazon
7 days ago
  • Summary: This is a switch that lets you track issues on the network, manage ports and provides many of the features that a fully managed switch provides. So far it's worked very well for us. The fan isn't quiet but it's not as loud as some other switches we've installed. A great buy for the cost.

A solid well-performing switch

R. Worne, Amazon
7 days ago
  • Summary: I recently purchased this switch due to the lack of reliable consumer-grade unmanaged 16-port Gigabit switches. It was also listed on the Netgear ReadyNAS NV+ compatibility list, which was the second reason I purchased this model. This model replaced a Netgear GS116, which itself worked fine until it decided to suddenly stop transmitting packets and required unplugging and replugging the power cord.
