  • 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.

It's good for the price

Eric S., Newegg
23 February 2014
  • 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. I did not notice any noise from this switch.

  • 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. Then, sometimes, they don't come back. I bought my first GS716T in 2012. In the first year, it blew a port. I got it replaced under warra...

Works - love it!

  • Summary: Netgear makes good quality products at 1/2 the price of the big named guys. I have installed well over 50 of these Prosafe 16 or 24 models in small businesses, because they just work.

  • 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.

Dependable gigabit switch

J. Hault, Amazon
30 June 2013
  • Summary: Netgear makes great dependable products and these switches are no exception. 16 gigabit ports with 2 GBIC connections for expandability. What more can you ask for. I have several of these and the 24 port model installed and working well.
