Compact and stylish design:
The stylish, compact metal housing of GS-108B fits any working environment. The affordable and reliable series comes with 8 ports to meet network expansion needs.

Gigabit Ethernet boosts speed up to 10/100 times faster:
The ZyXEL GS-108B 10/100/1000 Mbps desktop switch is designed for reliable high-performance networks with speeds 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet connections. With the non-blocking switching fabric in full-duplex mode, the maximum speed can reach up to 2000 Mbps per port, while the store-and-forward service brings low latency and error-free packet delivering.

Easy to connect multiple devices:
GS-108B is a 8-Port desktop switch with plug-and-play capability. With the Nway auto-negotiation function, the GS-108B connects network counterparts with highest possible network speed and activates duplex mode automatically. You can easily connect networked devices such as PCs, network storage and print servers to the network without any manual configuration.

Energy saving via link status and cable length detection:
GS-108B compliant with IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet standard provides power-saving benefits without compromising performance. GS-108B automatically reduces power usage when it detects any shut down network device or inactive link. That is the power consumption of GS-108B adjusts according to the number of active network devices.

The GS-108B can also detect the length of connected Ethernet cables and adjust power usage accordingly. The shorter the Ethernet cable length, the less power it consumes.

    Features:
  • Compact and stylish design
  • Plug-and-play for easily connecting up to 8 network devices
  • Gigabit Ethernet boosts speed up to 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet
  • Automatically adjust the power consumption by detecting the link status and cable length
  • Loop detection support for stable network connections

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: ZyXEL GS105B Gigabit Ethernet Switch with Metal Housing & Green Energy Saving Technology 5-Port

Pros: Solid construction that seems like it will last. Easy, plug-n-play. Auto MDIX is nice.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I have several of these in various installations and all of the operate flawlessly, including online gaming and video streaming.

These guys will send out BPDU packets to detect loops. I haven't tested what it will do if a network loop is discovered.

2 out of 5 eggsDrops packets

This review is from: ZyXEL GS105B Gigabit Ethernet Switch with Metal Housing & Green Energy Saving Technology 5-Port

Pros: Usually fast enough, small, runs cool

Cons: Streaming 8Mbps DVB feed over UDP. IP Packets are broken into ~10 1.5kB fragments. This switch caught the 1st 1 or 2 fragments of each group, occasionally another, and dumped the other 70-80%, causing nearly 100% packet loss.

4 out of 5 eggsJust plain works

This review is from: ZyXEL GS105B Gigabit Ethernet Switch with Metal Housing & Green Energy Saving Technology 5-Port

Pros: Inexpensive, simple, well made, fast.

Cons: Drab appearance.

Other Thoughts: Writing a review of a product like the GS105B is like reviewing a really nice bolt. It's made of quality steel, is strong, has a quality finish, and is reasonably priced. Pretty exciting stuff, heh? The GS105B is most certainly not exciting - that is unless you get off on really well designed, rugged, made for purpose and reasonably priced hardware. Color me excited - and very pleased with this purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsAt this price why wouldn't you?

This review is from: ZyXEL GS105B Gigabit Ethernet Switch with Metal Housing & Green Energy Saving Technology 5-Port

Pros: Why get a little 5 port gig switch? Even if you only need 100, buy this have what you'll need for the future -- won't be getting any slower.

Metal case, silver, rubber feet.

Cons: No color coding of flashing lights to tell you 100 vs 1000. No biggie.

Other Thoughts: Using this in office to connect my workstation to my laptop for faster file transfers and backups. No special tweaking and it runs at 89% of 1000 just using windows exp to transfer files. Remote desktop is snappier, too. Would be good if I had a gb NAS also.

5 out of 5 eggsNice little Switch

This review is from: ZyXEL GS105B Gigabit Ethernet Switch with Metal Housing & Green Energy Saving Technology 5-Port

Pros: Metal box is a nice touch. 5 equal ports make this a plus one solution. Note: this is not a router and does not have a WAN port as one reviewer said. I've been using this for a year and just bought another one. No issues whatsoever!!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Great value from a good company

5 out of 5 eggsIt Giga-works groan...

This review is from: ZyXEL GS105B Gigabit Ethernet Switch with Metal Housing & Green Energy Saving Technology 5-Port

Pros: Small, cool running, lights on front, ports in back.
It has 4 ports on lan, 1 on wan - typical small switch.
It is very small, just plugged and played.
Giga speeds, while I haven't benched it or anything, seem very reasonable: keeping up with the HDD's

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Got it in sale for 1/2 price, can't complain a bit!
It's a good machine at a great price, thanks Egg.

This review is from: ZyXEL GS105B Gigabit Ethernet Switch with Metal Housing & Green Energy Saving Technology 5-Port

5 out of 5 eggsWell built, works great

This review is from: ZyXEL GS105B Gigabit Ethernet Switch with Metal Housing & Green Energy Saving Technology 5-Port

Pros: So much smaller than I expected. Metal chassis feels heavy and sturdy in the hand. All ports are Auto MDIX.

Cons: Can't think of any...

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace a 10/100 hub (yes hub, not switch) so I can get GbE speeds. Noticed the expected throughput increase when copying large files. What else can I say? It works great and is built great.
