4 out of 5 eggsQuality Switch, Steel Case, and No Setup Required

Pros: It doesn't get any easier than this, just plug in the power and the Ethernet cords, and you're done. The metal case is a nice touch. It gives it a sturdier construction, and the extra weight helps it to stay in place. Sometimes the weight of the attach cords will tilt or pull a switch off of a desk/shelf.

I've been using this and other Netgear switches for years. I have not had any issues with them.

The electrical ground pin on the chassis is a nice touch. It's not something you see all the time, but it's there if you need to use it.

Lifetime warranty is always a plus.

Cons: This is just a 100 Mbps switch, not a 1 Gbps Gigabit switch. This isn't as big of a con as many make it out to be, depending on the application. If this is used in a home, a regular user or family would never be able to max out the bandwidth on a 100 Mbps switch. Even most small offices wouldn't be able to max out a 100 Mbps switch. The only annoyance I come across when not using a Gigabit switch is that some other connected devices like modems and Gigabit firewalls/routers/switches will use an orange light instead of a green light to designate the slower connected device or may blink annoyingly to constantly remind you that a non-Gigabit device is connected.

Other Thoughts: Take notice that the power cord and Ethernet ports are on opposite sides. The status lights are all on the Ethernet ports themselves. For some applications this type of a setup is an advantage and for others it is a disadvantage. So you may want to get the type that will fit best for your setup.

If you are planning to use this, or any other switch, to connect to a modem to distribute Internet connections, I would recommend using a firewall instead to connect to the modem. With all the personal information that is stored on computers, transferred online, and the ever growing list of Internet connected smart devices, it's really to your benefit to have the layer of security that a firewall provides.

5 out of 5 eggsLying PSU

Pros: Excellent solution for lightning-fast LAN nights!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This switch does NOT require exactly 7V to operate. It you lose your power supply, it's happy running on anything between 3 and 12V (maybe more, I don't remember the regulator chip inside). Just make sure to get the polarity right, of course!

5 out of 5 eggsDifferent voltage and LEDs than shown

Pros: Robust metal case, small.

Cons: On/off switch unnecessary; reliability issue.

Other Thoughts: The switch works fine and is high quality. Just note that the design has changed: the 7.5V input is now 12V, and there is only one LED per port, instead of two. I wish there was no power switch - seems like an unnecessary feature that could lead to failure, or inadvertent activation.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked great

Pros: I enjoyed using this product for several years without any problems. It was replaced with an 8 Port switch recently but still works just fine. I was also impressed with the metal housing and the fine orange peel finish.

Cons: None so far
