Summary: I use mainly Netgear as they always work, and when I upgrade to faster speed I stay with what has always worked. These are plug and play and forget it till you want a faster speed then buy the next model up. I have two of these and they have worked for years JFS524, I would like to upgrade to gigabit, but they work so well.
Excerpt: This is a great Ethernet Switch! It is very easy to use and network a room with this 24-Port switch. The price was very good and I like NETGEAR, I have a few other switches by them and they have always been dependable. The rack mount is pretty easy to mount and I didn't have any trouble what so ever. The only complaint I have about this product is that I wish the power cord was longer, because I'm having issues reaching the plug after the switch was mounted.
Excerpt: This rack worked perfectly fine right out of the box. I highly recommend it. I was able to mount it up in the rack, plug in all the cables, and it went to work immediately. I am using this switch in a whole home technology integration installation which will control all audio, video, and internet in the entire house. I ran several load tests against it and tried using up all the ports. This switch never missed a beat.
Pros: Easily Expanded, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Reliable
