Summary: I got the NETGEAR ProSAFE GS724T Gigabit Smart Switch to replace a failing old SMC SMC8126L2 Gigabit Smart switch at a client of my IT Practice. It is operating perfectly including one VLAN in the client's configuration as their primary switch.
Summary: The switch works fine and my IT guy likes the interface. Good price too. BUT... the NetGear fiber modules can ONLY talk to other NetGear fiber modules. They cannot communicate with a Cisco Fiber Module so I can't use these switches as intended in our network at the office. Disappointing!
Summary: This switch fully met our expectations. We were looking for a dumb 32 port gigabit switch without a fan, and although this switch this is a "smart" switch it seems to do a great job out of the box with no changes to its default configuration. Seems to work well.
I wire instead of using wireless whenever possible - which isn't easy in a house that wasn't pre-wired

Summary: This has worked well in our home. I wire instead of using wireless whenever possible - which isn't easy in a house that wasn't pre-wired. But the reason I went to this type of switch was to isolate misbehaving devices.
