Summary: This is basically equivalent to Netgear GS108NA and even looks the same. This is much cheaper and performs the same. This is one of the best non-managed gigabit switches, and at a good price. The metal case is sturdy and well shielded. Both LEDs on each port shows activity by flicker duration.

Summary: This switch is very good quality! I was looking for an 8 port switch, but I wanted to be able to remotely connect to it across my network. This is just what I needed. Overall, the switch is great quality, offers some good features for the cost, and has held up well for the few weeks I've been using...
Summary: I work at a government shop that has a10/100 network in place. I had two stations that were transmitting large, multiple gigabyte, files back and forth. I installed this switch on the network and connected the two station to it.
Cons: Plug and play? Really?, Nothing useful in the user guide and the manual is says they same this but in diff language. I plug my Laptop and my Desktop in and i get "Limited" internet connection, can do anything... Run Windows Network Diagnostics says "Ethernet" Doesn't have a valid IP Configuration...
Summary: The switch works as described and works pretty well. It would get a full 5 stars, but there are a few minor things with the switch. First, although it is manageable through a web page, it has no support for SNMP.
Really good for a small step up from an unmanaged switch

Summary: This switch has replaced a bunch of cascaded unmanaged switches on my home network. The network ran fine with the unmanaged switches, but I really wanted a switch with 802.1q (VLAN and QoS) support, though I was having trouble justifying paying $150 more for an L2 smart switch than an unmanaged one.
Summary: Upgrade for a 10-100 switch. Out of the box and right to work. Children notice no change which is good. Wife's desktop now is using its nic to full capacity. Have 3 desktops, 2 laptops , 8 drops through out the house.
Summary: During our house remodel five years ago, I wired six rooms of the house with CAT6 running all of them to our "electronics closet", Although so many appliances today have wireless capability, I still prefer to hard wire TV's, media players and NAS drives to the Netgear gigabit router.
