5 out of 5 eggsRock solid switch

This review is from: NETGEAR 8 Port Gigabit Business-Class Desktop Switch - Lifetime Warranty (GS108)

Pros: This switch is rock solid, I have never had any problems with it. I have never had to reset it because it locked up. The physical construction is solid and won't break easily of something falls on it.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: It's a simple switch, the only requirements I have are that it doesn't lock up constantly. This unit has not doe so yet, and the last one I had lasted about 6 years before it had at done it once.

3 out of 5 eggsNetgear 8 port switch partial failure

This review is from: NETGEAR 8 Port Gigabit Business-Class Desktop Switch - Lifetime Warranty (GS108)

Pros: Plugged it in and it found my Netgear router. It worked flawlessly out of the box.

Cons: it worked just 2 weeks more than one year, and one port just stopped working. I use all 8 ports, so this hurt my network. I need all 8 ports.

Other Thoughts: I have used Netgear for many years, routers, switches and none of them have broken. So, this first failure(in one year) took me by surprise. I would have given a 5 star, but the relatively short lifespan put it down 2 eggs.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, works great

This review is from: NETGEAR 8 Port Gigabit Business-Class Desktop Switch - Lifetime Warranty (GS108)

Pros: Fast, easy to setup, and can be placed nearly anywhere.

I've been using this for over a year now and there hasn't been a single issue. Gigabit transfers on the local network is sure worth this low cost.

Cons: 24-ports for this price would be awesome!

4 out of 5 eggsIt works

This review is from: NETGEAR 8 Port Gigabit Business-Class Desktop Switch - Lifetime Warranty (GS108)

Pros: This little switch functions properly even after almost a year of abuse in my home office I am creating.

I like that it has a sturdy metal case. Well worth it especially since it was on sale at the time.

A great unmanaged switch.

Cons: none it does its job

Other Thoughts: Great little device if you need to give yourself some more connections on a small home network or around an office. These are dumb switches so put them behind a router and they will do their job.

1 out of 5 eggsBreaks in obscure ways

This review is from: NETGEAR 8 Port Gigabit Business-Class Desktop Switch - Lifetime Warranty (GS108)

Pros: Metal case, sturdy construction

Cons: I had several of these break down after some time in extremely hard to diagnose scenarios. They'd still work, but bandwidth with some devices was extremely limited. Only swapped out the switch as a last resort, and it fixed the bandwidth issues in at least 3 cases.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

This review is from: NETGEAR 8 Port Gigabit Business-Class Desktop Switch - Lifetime Warranty (GS108)

Pros: Definitely good construction. Its a switch and works as expected

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: The metal construction is a lot more stable than plastic desktop switches. This one doesn't move unless I really pull on an Ethernet cable.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks nicely.

This review is from: NETGEAR 8 Port Gigabit Business-Class Desktop Switch - Lifetime Warranty (GS108)

Pros: I bought this to replace my previous Netgear Switch one that finally died after like 7 or 8 years of use... or it might be more.

Just connect it and that's it. Works well. Feels nice and hefty, not light and flimsy plastic.

Cons: Non so far. I'll update it anything comes up.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent switch

This review is from: NETGEAR 8 Port Gigabit Business-Class Desktop Switch - Lifetime Warranty (GS108)

Pros: I really love these netgear switches. You plug them in, and they do the work. Lifetime warranty, no weird things going on that you have to troubleshoot (like a certain cisco switch that inexplicably blocked things and needed a firmware downgrade to correct... yes, a layer 2 SWITCH.) There's really nothing bad I have to say about these. The design is elegant and solid, not like some of the more flashy, obnoxious switches I've seen.

Cons: I can't think of any, really. It's a fast switch that you can plug in and never think about again.

Other Thoughts: You can't go wrong with netgear.
