Great Value

ALESSANDRA D., Newegg
21 October 2012
  • Summary: We install Cisco and Netgear GSM and GS switches on a weekly basis. Our networks are advanced multi-VLAN, VLAN-routed, ACL based distributed networks. We use Netgear products when our customer's can't afford Cisco.
  • Pros: Low cost, fast back-plane, excellent CLI, life-time warranty. Firmware gets better with each upgrade at least yearly. Full featured Layer 3 switch, and very fast on the back plane.
  • Cons: GUI isn't great, sometimes get one in DOA. The only quirky thing we have found is that once you build a VLAN routing interface, you can no longer route traffic across the management VLAN if you configured that prior to adding your first VLAN routing interface. This just means you cannot connect t...

Tough to get support

Bryan R., Newegg
14 August 2012
  • Summary: We have 3 of these switches used in a stack and all 3 have at different times spontaneously rebooted, taking the whole network down and corrupting our database in the process. We registered our switches, but getting tech support is very difficult.
  • Pros: Inexpensive for the features of the switch. Solid when used individually.
  • Cons: The switches have stability issues when used in a stack. Knowledgeable tech support to diagnose equipment problems is difficult or impossible to contact.

Solid Data Center grade layer 2 / layer 3 switch at a bargain price

tarxvf, Ebay
1 December 2011
  • Summary: The Netgear GSM7352S 48 port switches are a nifty little unit from Netgear. Layer 3 and Layer 2 capable, these switches (the -100 version) are the original release without dual removable internal power supplies.

Be careful

Rick A., Newegg
21 June 2010
  • Summary: I'm expecting a gigabit switch with 8 "10 gigabit" ports as advertised. I keep getting a 100 meg switch with 4 gigabit ports. I think someone pulled a bait and switch at the warehouse or something. On the box it is listed as a GSM7352S-200NAS, but on the unit itself it is listed as a GSM7352S v2.
  • Pros: Haven't got what I ordered yet.
  • Cons: The switch I get even after a rma is not the one listed.

Rock Solid

Juanito G., Newegg
2 April 2009
  • Summary: We use Cisco Catalyst switches on projects also, and these Progear series have been just as reliable.
  • Pros: Rock Solid, fast.
  • Cons: We've had this for over a year and it's been tucked away in a server room. We haven't had to do anything to it since we first installed it and set it up, so I can't remember or think of any cons.
