4 out of 5 eggsReliable But Not Fast

Pros: Netgear has a proven track record with all their Prosafe switches.

Cons: This is NOT a Gigabit switch (which would be 10/100/1000). Instead, it's only 10/100. This is OK on a small network where fast transfer speed is not essential.

Other Thoughts: This FS108 is a very low-cost way to add more ethernet network ports to your home router. If you need greater speed then you may wish to look at the Netgear GS108 which costs more and can handle more network "traffic" at higher speeds.

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.

The lifetime warranty is a definite 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 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 eggsSolid switch!

Pros: Metal case means better cooling and rigidness.

Cons: Only 100Mb/s max, not 1Gb/s, so watch out!

4 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Works fine.

Power supply is not a "switcher."

Cons: Gets hot -- hot enough that I wouldn't stack anything on top of it. That's the reason for taking off one egg.

Wish the ports were on the back, i.e., on the side opposite the LEDs.

Other Thoughts: I've had this one for years but didn't use it for a long time -- replaced it by a GS108 Gigabit switch -- but now I've added it back in, as I needed some additional ports for which 100Mbps was sufficient.

I see people complaining about the size of the wallwart, but that's because it has a transformer rather then being a radio-interference-generating switching power supply.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Cheap Switch

Pros: I've always had respect for Netgear's networking technology.

Even though these are only 10/100, they're great switches. Every Netgear Prosafe I've bought has been "plug and forget".

Using 1 to extend my network to an office in my house where the most bandwidth consumption expected is my 8Mbit Internet connection.

Cons: Would not recommend using these switches on a network where streaming media is heavy, because they are only 10/100.

Other Thoughts: Great way to cut corners on a small home\business network without compromising reliability (only speed).

5 out of 5 eggsObsolete Technology

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Fast Ethernet has been obsolete since 2003 at least.

Other Thoughts: Who buys this stuff? This is the 2nd decade of the 21st Century. Even my 2003 vintage MSI mobos have Gigabit Ethernet ports, and even notebook hard drives can deliver faster data transfer speeds than a 100base-T link can handle. It astounds me that manufacturers still make obsolete stuff like this, but then again, it took 25 years to finally kill off the floppy disk. Ha!

5 out of 5 eggsBest 8 Port Ever!

Pros: Best 8 port unmanaged switch ever created for the benefit of mankind. I replace old and fairly new Lxxxxxs switches on regular basis with these. The Prosafe product line runs circles around anything out there, PERIOD.

Cons: NONE!
