3 out of 5 eggsAwesome while the last

Pros: These little devices seem to work amazingly for about 14 months. Replaced three units over the last four years, all just after running out of warranty period. Great while they last.

Cons: Only seem to last 14-16 months on average.

5 out of 5 eggsJGS524 Switch

Pros: Great Switch, we have had one on our business network for 4+ years with no problems. It just works. I'm getting ready to buy my second one today, and great deal. I paid $300.00 for the first one from our local IT consultant.

Cons: None the I have

Other Thoughts: I would like to mention, per Netgears Tech, there is no difference between the JGS524 & the JGS524NA. The "NA" is a country code. They also told me that all of their switches that are 24 ports or more have fans. Newegg has this listed as fanless. I can confirm my current one has a fan.

3 out of 5 eggsFanless? Why??

Pros: Great product. Lots of bandwidth. Clearly uses less electricity than my previous switch. LEDs are clear and easily understood. Comes with brackets for wall mounting. Easy setup.

Cons: No fan. Pictures show a fan on this device - and is mentioned in a lot of reviews. Some of the latest reviews are stating no fan, however the photos show differently.

Other Thoughts: This seems to be the going thing these days - no more fans on hot devices. Make sure your device stays cool to the touch otherwise you may have to implement a better type of heat dissipation.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat switch, but watch the rebate

Pros: This switch is fast and silent. As others have mentioned, the current revision of this switch is completely fanless. I also like the fact that it has an internal power supply. Lifetime warranty is a plus.

Cons: I submitted my rebate to Netgear and about a week later I received an email containing my rebate tracking number.

When I checked the rebate status online using the tracking number, I was surprised to see that my rebate was denied due to an 'Invalid Purchase Location'. Nice.

Newegg was clearly listed as a valid purchase location on the rebate form, and I had included my Newegg receipt in my rebate submission.

I contacted the rebate company's customer service department and the rep said that they would escalate my case to Netgear, and that I would be notified of the outcome within 7-10 business days.

A few minutes later I checked my rebate status again and it had changed to "Your rebate is valid and is scheduled for final processing." That was a fast 7-10 days :)

In the end I suspect I will receive my rebate, but I suggest that you keep an eye on yours.

5 out of 5 eggsLatest version is Fanless

Pros: Just works, Silent, internal power supply

Cons: connectivity / speed lights are all on the left side of the box - prefer when the lights are above each port like on other netgear switches

Other Thoughts: Lots of reviews of this product say it has a loud fan. The most recent version is fanless - I purchased in February 2013 - so totally silent. The marketing materials in the box have not been changed to reflect this, but the outside of the box now says fanless, and the unit is indeed silent.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Longevity

Cons: none comes to mind

Other Thoughts: I am not a network guru, for that matter not even very knowledgeable. However, I bought this to have my whole house wired to this in panel box. It has been 5 years so far and still kicking. All we use this for is internet access and NAS access. No problems with either. The internet we get about 25MBS haven't really tested NAS. We can stream 1080p content with no lag, stuttering or buffering. Overall seems to be a good unit with a good life span.

4 out of 5 eggsDon't COunt on Your Rebate

Pros: If you need the ports this is a great way to reduce the clutter of having multiple wiring hubs all over your utility closet. The rack mount brakcets worked nicely on the utility closet wall.

Cons: Pricey without the advertised rebate.

Other Thoughts: After six weeks Netgear sent me a postcard saying the purchase date on the rebate form was invalid, so I am out $40. Never take a rebate for granted.

2 out of 5 eggsDOA out of box

Pros: Well, hard to say. It was quiet. That is a nice change over my old FS524. 2 star rating for being quiet.

Cons: No through put. Hooked it up, appeared to be connected on the PC, but no connectivity. Tried to ping 8.8.8.8. Total packet loss. Tried to ping the modem. 75% packet loss. No internet connectivity. Could not access the modem admin page. Took the unit out, had a faint burnt odor to it. Old switch back in place, network back online.

Other Thoughts: Will have further review if I get a unit that works.
