Bought 2 and both died
Pros: They look nice and work OK at first
Cons: I submitted this to Netgear support for RMA: Both switches started acting up around the same time. Ran OK for 2-3 months, then would start running very slow. Rebooting the switch would resolve it, but the problem would return. Started having to reboot them numerous times daily. Now one won't power on, and the other one has constant blinking lights on all 16 ports with no cables plugged in.
Other Thoughts: Replaced it with an HP Procurve gigabit 16-port switch, which was only about sixty bucks more. It's lightning fast, and I am going to assume it will last longer. Attempting to get these 2 replaced under warranty. They'll make decent emergency/loaner switches. These are the only Netgear switches I have ever had an issue with. Usually, they are rock solid.
Did you find this review helpful?
Pros: Small and sturdy construction. The port mirroring, traffic meter and cable tester all work well.
Cons: Need to install configuration utility on a Windows PC on the same subnet. WinPcap and Adobe AIR are also required. The utility is very lightweight and responsive, at least.
Other Thoughts: Still a fantastic switch for the price, though.

Pros: Compact Size
Cons: Need a Netgear app to communicate with the switch, but it is very responsive. A lot better than their low end smart switch web interfaces.
Other Thoughts: I have been a fan of netgear unmanaged switches. They are compact and very sturdily built. I don't think you will find a physically smaller switch that has some management capability.
