5 out of 5 eggsGood product that fits in a small space.

Pros: I have a Modem/Router/Switch that is provided by the Cable company where one of the ports is dead. I needed to expand my network to 6 ports, so I went looking for a Switch. I had only a small space to put a Switch near my Entertainment Center. I have owned NetGear products in the past, and this one was at a very reasonable price. This Switch is very small and produces consistently fast speeds. I have all four ports running and have no problem with speed.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: None.

4 out of 5 eggsWell worth the money

Pros: Small footprint and typical netgear reliability.

Cons: There aren't any. This works. The price was right. Believe me, if there was a negative about this, I'd post it.

Other Thoughts: I had one of these already and have added this for future expansion. The current unit has performed flawlessly over the past year and I like this unit because it takes up so little space!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Well

Pros: Gigabit switch for a good price (on sale at the time)

Cons: Wished it was available in black

Other Thoughts: Arrived in working order and does its job well. There was a noticeable increase in file transfer speed between the computers separated by this switch, in comparison to the older 100/10 Netgear switch it replaced. It handles remote backups of all my networked computers and steams media well.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: It works; it's comparatively cheap; unlike the router I was previously using as a central switch, I appear to actually be able to operate at full duplex, saturating the link with large file transfers in the upstream direction and simultaneously streaming HD video in the downstream direction, while my previous router-switch would choke on streaming media if I saturated the upstream link; runs 1 Gbps over Cat5e UTP wires just fine (maximum cable distance in my house is around 100 ft)

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsDid not work out of the box

Pros: Small footprint

Cons: Did not work right out of the box. Lights up, but cannot allow connections to the network. Put in a different switch, and it worked fine. Just lousy quality control, I guess.

Other Thoughts: If you're going to buy this and you're in a hurry, buy two and return the one that fails.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: The thing just works. I mean, the setup manual basically just says, "Unpack, plug into power outlet, plug in devices". And, guess what? That's all of the directions that you could possibly ever need.

Transfer speed is quite good. I tested it by transferring a large .iso file, and the transfer completed in no time.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: It doens't have the bells and whistles of a regular enterprise-type switch. I don't count that as a negative, because there are lots of users who will never need them. If your switching needs are simple, this item will definitely do the job.

Highly recommended.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Looks nice. Good price.

Cons: I hate to be the only 1 star review, but this switch did not work out of the box. I've tested my cables and they work fine. The switch fails to connect to anything other than another (d-link) switch, making it.... not much of a switch. Anything other than the other switch gets a dead link light regardless of the port or the cable used. Cables are all cat6 standard x-over wired for gigabit.

Other Thoughts: My time lost fighting this chinese piece of junk was worth more than the switch cost.
