One of the worst switches I have ever bought.

Brian Aker, Amazon
27 August 2013
  • Summary: One of the worst switches I have ever bought. 1) Don't be fooled by the documentation, it only does static routing. 2) The support folks couldn't tell one model from another when I spoke to them. 3) The DHCP server just flatly fails to work.

Not the best bang for your buck

Tim D., Newegg
6 June 2013
  • Summary: This switch, at first glance, is a great value. One of the lowest cost per Gb switches you can find with this density. However, after having the misfortune of managing a dozen or so of these switches over the past year, I've found that the downtime and general problems that plague them is not worth...
  • Pros: Low cost per Gb Managed access DB9 console port
  • Cons: Unreliable Prone to firmware problems Prone to flash memory corruption Does not handle actual enterprise environments well

It is worth spending a little more on a decent switch

  • Summary: Unfortunately with this switch I had to learn that the hard way. I have the latest firmware installed on this switch. The DHCP would not assign all the addresses in the address pool. We had to unplug from power and do a hard reset to get the DHCP to assign all the addresses.

Great switch

Frank G., Newegg
25 January 2012
  • Summary: I also had the issue of this thing losing my settings on reboot. I called Netgear, was transferred to 3 different techs, during my long hold times I was messing around and fixed it myself.
  • Pros: Great performing switch Great Price Full featured
  • Cons: None UI could be nicer... Netgear support isn't really helpful, they're nice, but not that helpful.

So far so very good

Cary Mathis "ktell", Amazon
3 November 2010
  • Summary: 48 ports of gigabit sweetness. Managed L2 capabilities for QOS and VLAN segregation for my internal network. It's only been a month but it's working very well, especially for the price. Since this has a lifetime warranty I think I'm going to be very happy with it.

Perfect design

Jack Johnson "Busy bee", Amazon
13 July 2010
  • Summary: I installed this switch in our small office. It works flawlessly right out of the box. Very hard to understand all the lingo in the setup configuration unless your are a networking gearhead. It has way too many programming options. It was completely over my head.

Nice Giga switch

Angela R., Newegg
29 April 2010
  • Summary: The free PS3 increased the value and made for a lot of fun.
  • Pros: I am by no means a pro when it comes to switches. This switch has worked great from day one. No issues or problems with the installed.
  • Cons: None yet

Blue or Purple

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: For the price and the features it is a good deal. Now that they have the free PS3 it is even more worth it. I had a copier that freaked out and messed up the arp table. Could not find a way to clear it in the user interface had to unplug and replug. Lesson learned use the backup feature.
  • Pros: A feature rich Gig E switch. Easy to use webinterface. Price. Color makes it stand out in my rack.
  • Cons: Will not remember any user customizations after unplugging the switch.(See Below) The fans make this a noisy switch.
