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

Great switch

  • 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.

Nice Giga switch

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Pros: I don't know.
  • Cons: It's not 1000 on all 48 ports. They only work in 10/100 and only 49 and 50 work at 1000.

Perfect design

  • 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.

Excellent Value

  • Summary: I have been a fan of NetGear's blue-metal-box line (now called ProSafe) for some years, so I dove into this box (and its 24-port brother) for a project I was working on. Out of the box, they were plug-and-play.

  • Summary: I am decided to wire my entire house with cat 6 for a gigabit network and chose this switch. I will not be using most of its advanced features. This switch is very loud. Three fans that run all the time.
