2 out of 5 eggsLooks good on paper, but...

Pros: Nice specs
When it works, it works decently
Nice looking
On-port link/activity lights
RPS capability
Netgear support is not half bad (as long as you're just asking for an RMA)
Standard RS-232 console connection
CLI is passable, similar to IOS with just enough differences to make you scratch your head (for instance, show ip interface brief does not show all interfaces and their states, only VLANs with IPs)

Cons: Consistently eventually shows "fan failure" regardless of firmware update. It appears this is the case for all GSM series switches
Sometimes loses configuration or develops corrupt flash blocks
Will eventually develop random reboots
Horrible web interface
Not very much SNMP capability. No ability to monitor CPU or storage as far as I can see
Just plain not reliable. We've RMAed at least 10 of these switches in the past year for the same things: fan failure, random reboots, and corrupt flash blocks

Other Thoughts: If you're a very small business, these may work fine. If you are an SMB or SME, consider moving up to Cisco, HP, Juniper, Dell - hell, I think even D-LINK business switches are supposed to be more reliable than these. I would not recommend Netgear for any networks pushing large amounts of data 24/7.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat switch, worth 3 times the price

Pros: We brought this switch before and this is the six switches we brought for this model. They are great switches. VLAN, tagged or untagged, bonding with very high throughput.

Its performance is better than Cisco, but price is only 1/3 of Cisco switches. Great deal!

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Hope Netgear keep making this model forever. This is a great switch for any business.

1 out of 5 eggsI regret getting it.

Pros: It works as switch.

Cons: I did not use command line interface a lot.
The web UI is worse than consumer router, not friendly, unreliable. SNMP is a joke, can not get data consistently. NTP does not work most of the time. Admin login username password length limited.

Other Thoughts: I end up repair my old dlink switch (PSU and fan). This is now staying a side as back up.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This unit comes complete with everything to hook it up and mount it. It even comes with a serial communications cable. Well built cabinet.

Cons: Usually you will give a low score on a device when it does not work. This is one of them. After 4 weeks in service this unit started dumping clients off of the network. This unit is used in a radio station moving uncompressed digital audio from a server to client air computers. I am not a network engineer but I can read and usually get things figured out. After several complaints from staff and then a complete meltdown on a Sunday I pulled this unit from service and put the 100 Mb FSM724 Netgear switch back in. This unit is either losing power or rebooting on its own because the uptime clock resets to zero when connectivity is lost. Technical support so far has been poor. The last tech that I talked to was short and belittling. The switch is sitting on my test bench, instead of on a network. It is a waiting game. No one can afford or would be responsible to put a known problem child switch back on a critical network.

Other Thoughts: I have always purchased NetGear but have never had to deal with tech support to this extent. Now I have a different opinion of the company and will probably look elsewhere the next time. Sorry Netgear.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat mid level gigabit switch

Pros: The price was right for the features it has. The CLI has a little bit of a learning curve coming from cisco, but I found it to be somewhat similar and much easier to comprehend than the web interface. The gigabit cisco switches were just way too expensive for our application. (The real cisco switches, not the linksys disquised as a cisco switches)

Cons: The web interface was REALLY confusing to me. It's not very intuitive at all.

Other Thoughts: RT*M :)

3 out of 5 eggsNice switch - terrible support

Pros: Documentation is on a CD but is very extensive. It'll keep you busy for a few days reading it all. Also, includesd a quickstart setup sheet that had me up and running pretty quick. I would advise assigning these a static ip which is pretty easy to do with hyperterminal. The web interface is easy to use and pretty extensive. Port locations alternate up and down instead of 1-12 on one row and 13-24 on next which worked out better for me. Once I got into the web interface, I was impressed at the reports I could pull and all the other functions available. You definitely get your money's worth.

Cons: Tech support. After I installed and hooked up the switches (3 stacked) I started getting complaints that the network was running slow. I noticed that one switch was generating collisions so I put the old switches on line and everything was fine. I called tech support and talked to David who told me I had to download the latest firmware but I found out later that the switches had the latest firmware installed. That was his only offer of a solution, like he just wanted to get rid of me. That's when I went in and assigned static ip addresses, restarted each of the switches and voila - the switches worked like they were supposed to. Too bad the tech wasn't smart enough or interested to help out enough to offer other suggestions so I didn't have to waste my time troubleshooting. I used to be a phone tech and really tried for a first time resolution on each call and was really tempted to return these 3 and cancel the 4th one I just bought from NewEgg.

Other Thoughts: Newegg is great and I'll continue considering them for business purchases. Also, if you do get one of these switches, don't forget the gigabit NIC's. I say that because I forgot about a couple machines that had the 10/100 cards and there was a noticable difference when I replaced the cards

5 out of 5 eggsno problems

Pros: Compared to a Netgear GS748TS
MUCH quieter ! ! !
Web interface is much faster
Slightly better status LEDs
Seb interface offers better statistics summary (good for spotting errors at a glance that might mean bad cabling or some such).

Cons: Setup not quite as easy as some other switches (or maybe I was just confused at the start).

Other Thoughts: We haven't used many any of the advanced features.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: Blazing speed, rock-solid stability, excellent tech support

Cons: Documentation is spotty in places. To set up VLANs I had to call tech support who gave me a totally different procedure than what was listed.

Other Thoughts: I purchased one of these about 6 months ago and another today to support a growing web server farm and cluster of database servers.

5 out of 5 eggsBeats Cisco (sort of)

Pros: Nice web interface. Much easier to manage than Cisco and easier to mine out information. Installed it side by side with a Cisco 3750 (that cost about $4,500) and actually got about 3-4% faster throughput for 1/4 the price.

Full VLAN support, plenty of routing options, etc. If I had three hands I'd give it 3 thumbs up!

Cons: Doesn't have the dizzing array of options that a Cisco does but perhaps that's not necessarily a bad thing.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Switch for the money

Pros: Easy to set up

Cons: web interface is sort of clunky until you upgrade the firware... No big deal but i had to reset the device twice to re-flash it (firefox had some issues with the Web interface until the upgrade)

Other Thoughts: Love these devices, they are very stable and my one complaint about it would do noting to keep me from purchasing more!
