4 out of 5 eggsGS108T

Pros: These switches just...work. I have a v1 unit as well as the newer unit and am getting ready to purchase my third. A great unit that works well. As all ways, Newegg rocks!

Cons: Three eggs cause:
wish they cost less
You do need to access them manually, the discovery software has never worked for me.

Other Thoughts: They can be a pain to access initially but once you are there and set them up, they are great. Have only had to do a reboot once.

4 out of 5 eggsNetGear GS108T

Pros: Supports true managed switch layer 2 functionality.
Configured for bonding and tested failover passes; as well as noticeable increaed throughput. Cheapest pro-grade managed switch out there. Good company.

Cons: Interface was kludgy and difficult to follow. Unit was not found on my network according to instructions. Had top seriously hack a PC to get it to show up. Once configured; however, runs quiet, cool, and very well. Tested redunancy successfully as well as bonding.

Other Thoughts: Overall, you get whay you pay for: I don't mind a difficult, one time only setup for an excellent product worth three times its price.

5 out of 5 eggsReally excellent switch at a good price

Pros: Features actually work (unlike most semi-managed switches)
Good performance
Good support
Poe powered
Metal case

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Really great switch. I had one problem with a firmware defect, reported it to Netgear support, and they fixed it and included the fix in the next firmware release. Now that's service. The switch accepts POE power on port 1 which is really nice, and all featured I have used (such as static MAC tables, port protection, NTP, etc.) all work perfectly. Very nice.

4 out of 5 eggsNetgear might be improving!

Pros: Smallest gigabit switch I could find with full management. Real true managed SNMP v1 thru v3 (not just RMON), web access, speedy, doesn't get too warm, nice lights I guess. :) Lifetime warranty? (more below) No problems so far!

Cons: As others have said, Netgear likes to make these little metal boxes that emulate larger 24 switches. They really should redesign it into a desktop-style switch so the plugs are in the back and the lights are in the front. That's something I really like about the 3Com 3CDSG8 (out of production), which I own 4 of.

While it doesn't get any warmer than my 3Com 3CDSG8, I do which it stayed cooler.

Other Thoughts: I've had 2 of Netgear's older 5 port gigabit non-managed switches and both died just after their year warranty. Because of that I stayed away from Netgear, but I recently needed a different brand SNMP switch for software testing and I took a chance on this. I'm happy to say it's been working just fine. Although it says it has a lifetime warranty, I've heard from some that might not cover the power supply, but you better believe they'll cover the power supply if this dies on me or I'll go 5 more years without buying a Netgear product!

Be warned, Netgear has a 16 port switch that seems very much like this one, but model # ends with an "E", not a "T", so it doesn't have true SNMP, just RMON. There's an 8 port "E" version as well. Apparently Netgear doesn't make a 16 port "T" version, but maybe they will someday.

3 out of 5 eggsMirroring Disappointment

Pros: 1) Works out of the box (without needing any custom configuration)
2) Quiet (no fans)
3) Over 2 years of service

Cons: 1) Not desktop friendly (network ports/connections are in front). To be desktop friendly ports/connections should be in rear and status on front bezel.

2) Web configuration is a little slow to load. Some link based images are small and difficult to click on. For instance arrows in the VLAN Membership configuration.

3) Substandard Port Mirroring. Transmitted packets of vlan untagged members are copied to mirror destination as vlan tagged. This can result in misleading network capture traces. Making issue diagnoses more difficult, complex and prone to misdiagnosis.

Other Thoughts: Very disappointed with the port "mirroring" behavior of vlan untagged members. It’s more like a one way window than a mirror (see cons).

The mirroring behavior of vlan untagged members is in contradiction with the Software Administration Manual which states the following in the Multiple Port Mirroring section on page 216.

“The packet that is copied to the destination port is in the same format as the original packet on the wire. This means that if the mirror is copying a received packet, the copied packet is vlan tagged or untagged as it was received on the source port. If the mirror is copying a transmitted packet, the copied packet is VLAN tagged or untagged as it is being transmitted on the source port.”

Cons 3a) In the case where sniffer NIC strips vlan tags before passing packet up the stack, transmitted packets of vlan tagged members will be seen by the sniffer as untagged.

Cons 3b) In the case where sniffer NIC only passes untagged packets up the stack and discards vlan tagged packets, only received packets will be seen by the sniffer (half the conversation).

Cons 3c) In the case where sniffer NIC passes all packets up the stack unaltered (sometimes referred to as monitor mode enabled), transmitted packets of vlan untagged members will be seen by the sniffer as tagged.

Netgear Support Case is open for mirror issue. Details provided to Netgear. Awaiting resolution.

Disappointed with Netgear support. They won't go figure anything out on their own. Require customer to do all their for them.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Switch in NetGear Environment

Pros: NetGear Web Management Interface and compatible with NetGear Smart Control Center. Supports VLANS and LAGs (Trunking). Best for an enterprise customer that needs to add devices at the edge of the network, and doesn't want to pull additional cables. POE is very handy for remote closets.

Cons: No CONS really. I have 5 of these running and they just work. I wish they cost a little less!

3 out of 5 eggsNot SQUITE Smart

Pros: The switch is borderline "smart"
3 VLAN's for VOIP and VIDEO,
LAG, QOS, STP, speed and duplex control.

Cons: Its not a Full Layer2 managed device.
VLAN's are auto assigned, cant set ports to tag/untag/trunk modes.

Other Thoughts: For a home or small business user that is only looking for basic managed functions, This works fine.

If you need FULL VLAN support / assignment, try the HPJ9800A

1 out of 5 eggsPaper Weight

Pros: Works great as a dumb switch or paper weight

Cons: Mistakenly bought 2 of these instead of the GS108E. Was happy to find out that there is a web based utility instead of a Prosafe configuration client. Connected a laptop to the GS108T (not on a network). Used the included utility to find the device on the default IP 192.168.0.249. Changed the laptop's IP to the same subnet and opened the browser and logged into the admin panel with no problem.

Browsed to the VLAN 802.1Q advanced menu and started to add my VLANs. Managed to add 2 VLANs before the browser connection timed out. Couldn't ping the 192.168.0.249 IP, and a nmap of the entire 192.168.0.0/24 network showed nothing. A couple power cycles and restarting the laptop did nothing so I had to use the "Factory Default" reset button on the unit.

Second time around (same steps) fared somewhat better. I was able to add VLANs and tag/untag appropriate ports, but when I tried to assign the PVIDs the device stopped responding again. Pinging the 192.168.0.249 IP gives me nothing, and the Prosafe config utility turns up nothing. Nmap and snmp snooping shows nothing as well. Factory reset again and now I can't even find the device with the Prosafe utility.

Same results with the second unit. Both purchased brand new from Newegg and unboxed by me. Sending them back for the GS108E's (which may be more inconvenient to configure but at least they work).
