Summary: Very nice product and it functions well. Bout this because i needed more than a router or small switch to complete my networking needs just what I needed and I would definately buy another. Love netgear products!
Summary: This item works great. I bought this to use it as an extension to my router because I was running out of Ethernet ports. My network is gradually growing with more and more devices and this switch works perfect for that. Currently there is nothing I dislike about this product. It does a job well intended.
Summary: Pros: Simple. As an unmannaged switch the NETGEAR ProSafe JFS524 takes extremely little step time. Connect the switch to a router and other devices on the network with ethernet cables, give the switch power and it just works. Built-in power supply. The switch is powered with a standard IEC 320 power cable (computer power cable). No "wall wart" to loss or take up extra space on a power strip. Price. This is an older switch and by today's standards entry level switch.
