3 out of 5 eggsFS116 after almost a year

Pros: 16 ports more then I ever need
home use T100 is all we need to distribute internet to every gadget and pc in the house. It has more capacity then my Comcast 50Mb down / 12Mb up.

Cons: It requires reset of power every 1 month or so, noticed this after internet became sluggish speednet reported only 9Mb down speed. I have reset all other gear with no resolution, until I reset the switch did the speed jumped back up. Not sure what it is but I have read similar reviews from few others in regards of FS116 and FS108 .
I have not contacted Netgear. Sounds to me as some sort of static or heat issue might be effecting the speed downgrade.
Heard some folks being told by Netgear techs that it might be a software issue and that they will transfer them to pay per incident tech support. No thanks.
Hey, Netgear, its time get get your techs helping here with your product.

Other Thoughts: My home town is voting this November on city providing its fiber-optic loop to home and business connections at 1 gigabit for about $50 (Comcast is shaking in their boots) So I will have to upgrade my network to 1 gigabit speed. Kind of a happy bummer.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: All metal construction
Quiet power supply
It just works

Cons: I don't feel it is worth subtracting a star because everyone does it, but I wish companies would start moving the power supply bricks away from the plugs by at least six inches or so. It's so hard to fit them onto power strips or UPS's.

Other Thoughts: After running out of ports on my 8-port 10/100 switch that I have had for years, I decided to stick with the 16-port 10/100 switch because of seeing slightly more problems with 10/100/1000 switches in general and the fact that 10/100 mb is plenty fast for our house, even streaming 1080p videos. As expected, five minutes after unboxing it I was up and running and have had zero problems since. I will keep the 8-port switch as a backup or place it downstream on the network somewhere else in the house. I have been very happy with these Netgear 10/100 switches.

5 out of 5 eggsLasted 5 years (died today)

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good

Pros: No issues at all

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: These are very good switches, don't hesitate to get one. (Unless you're looking for gigabit)

I've owned at least 2 of these and while they may have been put out of commission i know they still work.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Cheap Switch

Pros: Good cheap switch.

Cons: Not Auto-Switching

Other Thoughts: Purchased this switch to expand LAN over maximum recommended cable length from primary switches. Primary switch----{fs116}------PC After a couple weeks we branched off the warehouse switch and I discovered it is NOT auto sensing and required adaption for cross-over. Still for the money it's a good deal.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent unit

Pros: Light weight, simple to install, worked out of box. Even though it is labeled a "desktop switch, I mounted it to the wall with the enclosed screws very easily.

Cons: None so far
