1 out of 5 eggsWorst Customer Support EVER

Pros: This switch worked fine for about a year.

Cons: After 15 months of usage, the switch started to cause issues on my network. It would cause the router to loose all connectivity on the intranet and internet access on both wired and wireless connections. I had to 'reboot' the router in order to get connectivity back - but after a hour, the issue would repeat itself. It took me several days to isolate the issue to the NETGEAR GS605AV switch.

Other Thoughts: I called NETGEAR customer support to have this unit exchange (2 year warranty on the switch). I was on text support with NETGEAR tech support over over 45 minutes and nothing was resolved. The support person was inattentive and DRAG everything out to wear you down in giving up trying to have them honor the warranty. I finally gave up. I'm going to throw the switch into the trash. Based on my experience, I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER NETGEAR PRODUCT AGAIN.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks good

Pros: It does it's job. Works without any fuss.

Cons: Wish there was a four port version. Not sure why the ports needs a QoS where you can't adjust it.

Other Thoughts: I got this to match with my WNDR3700v3. Have it connected to my Workstation and future peripherals. It looks nice, and really isn't much more you can ask from it.

5 out of 5 eggsGood price, works without hassle

Pros: It just works, no fuss, no muss. Connected to my Netgear router, connected my Sony STR-DN1020 AVR and my Samsung UN46D6000 TV to this device. Both units have internet access, streams audio and video from a router connected HTPC to both AVR and TV as it should without issue.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsBeast!

Pros: Love this switch. Simple, does its job. Small, easy to install, color coded for those who don't read instructions. Really like the lights on the front and cords plugging into the back, my previous switch had the lights and cords on the same side.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Oh and its black, so looks smooth and matches most of my hardware!

1 out of 5 eggsNetgear = Headache

Pros: None it failed out of the box. It would not allow the device out

Cons: Dealing with Netgear Customer Service. Person I spoke with didnt even want to help me. They didnt even know what product they were helping me with

Other Thoughts: I bought 3 of these at the time, 1 failed out of box. Been longer than 90 days since purchase so I couldnt return to newegg and why should i it comes with a 2 year warranty that netgear doesnt seem to want to honor. Words of advice test right as soon as you get it, becasue netgear wont do anything to fix it

5 out of 5 eggsNetgear 5 port Desktop Switch

Pros: Easy to install, Color coded ports easy to understand and makes connections to the appropriate devices simple.
It also looks good in my media center. Does exactly what it says and fits my need in this area.

Cons: None that I can see.

Other Thoughts: Perfect for a home entertainment unit. A single line to your media center gives you the ports where you need them.

4 out of 5 eggsIsn't geared for desktops

Pros: -Free with purchase of RT-N66U (amazing router)
-Bandwidth management
-Minimal, easily hidden

Cons: -Not great if you are only hooking up desktops (see comments)

Other Thoughts: I use Wake On Lan for all my desktops. Took a lot of frustration and troubleshooting before I narrowed it down to the switch. To save energy it powers down ports that are not in use preventing magic packets from getting to the desktop. In any event, that was a failure on my part. Had I been in the market for a switch I would have ruled this out.

For gaming console, smart TV or use with desktops that you aren't trying to do WOL it is great!
