Compact and stylish design:
The stylish, compact metal housing of GS-108B fits any working environment. The affordable and reliable series comes with 8 ports to meet network expansion needs.

Gigabit Ethernet boosts speed up to 10/100 times faster:
The ZyXEL GS-108B 10/100/1000 Mbps desktop switch is designed for reliable high-performance networks with speeds 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet connections. With the non-blocking switching fabric in full-duplex mode, the maximum speed can reach up to 2000 Mbps per port, while the store-and-forward service brings low latency and error-free packet delivering.

Easy to connect multiple devices:
GS-108B is a 8-Port desktop switch with plug-and-play capability. With the Nway auto-negotiation function, the GS-108B connects network counterparts with highest possible network speed and activates duplex mode automatically. You can easily connect networked devices such as PCs, network storage and print servers to the network without any manual configuration.

Energy saving via link status and cable length detection:
GS-108B compliant with IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet standard provides power-saving benefits without compromising performance. GS-108B automatically reduces power usage when it detects any shut down network device or inactive link. That is the power consumption of GS-108B adjusts according to the number of active network devices.

The GS-108B can also detect the length of connected Ethernet cables and adjust power usage accordingly. The shorter the Ethernet cable length, the less power it consumes.

    Features:
  • Compact and stylish design
  • Plug-and-play for easily connecting up to 8 network devices
  • Gigabit Ethernet boosts speed up to 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet
  • Automatically adjust the power consumption by detecting the link status and cable length
  • Loop detection support for stable network connections

Compact and stylish design:
The stylish, compact metal housing of GS-105B fits any working environment. The affordable and reliable series comes with 5 ports to meet network expansion needs.

Gigabit Ethernet boosts speed up to 10/100 times faster:
The ZyXEL GS-105B 10/100/1000 Mbps desktop switch is designed for reliable high-performance networks with speeds 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet connections. With the non-blocking switching fabric in full-duplex mode, the maximum speed can reach up to 2000 Mbps per port, while the store-and-forward service brings low latency and error-free packet delivering.

Easy to connect multiple devices:
GS-105B is a 5-Port desktop switch with plug-and-play capability. With the Nway auto-negotiation function, the GS-105B connects network counterparts with highest possible network speed and activates duplex mode automatically. You can easily connect networked devices such as PCs, network storage and print servers to the network without any manual configuration.

5 out of 5 eggsAnniversary

This review is from: ZyXEL GS108B 8 Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch with Metal Housing & Green Energy Saving Technology

Pros: Works great, Reliable, small foot print, stays cool.

Cons: no poe, but at the time, it was best value for the money.

Other Thoughts: Purchased 2 of these last year. Then, I lived in an apartment where there were consistent poaching between Verizon and Cablevision. After moving my router+setup twice in 2 years, I bought these the 3rd year. One for media center, another for document center. So regardless where my ISP's endpoint was, my rest of the setup remains untouched. Both of them have been up pretty much consistently 20x7 for over the last year. I've a mix of Fast and GigE devices, but never had a problem.

This review is from: ZyXEL GS108B 8 Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch with Metal Housing & Green Energy Saving Technology

Pros: Works great. It's made of metal and is heavy enough that it doesn't move around on a desk when all cords are plugged in.

Cons: none so far, it just works

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Switch

This review is from: ZyXEL GS108B 8 Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch with Metal Housing & Green Energy Saving Technology

Pros: I've had this switch for half a year now, and it's been nothing but wonderful! It routes perfectly and stays cool even though its constantly in use due to my home server. Lots of ports, extra even with all my stuff connected. Great at sharing Gigabit speed with my Fios iNets.

Cons: Only thing that bugs me, but isn't really a fault, is the lights on it. Its placed where i can see it when i sleep, and the lights blinking lights up my wall, but i usually keep some papers in front of it to block to wall. Just as a personal preference of complete darkness though. Great product though.

This review is from: ZyXEL GS108B 8 Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch with Metal Housing & Green Energy Saving Technology

Pros: None.

Cons: Defective out of box. Would not power on.

Other Thoughts: I needed this switch. Extremely inconvenient. Thought I'd try out ZyXEL for the first time. I guess it will be the last time.

3 out of 5 eggsCheap in most ways

This review is from: ZyXEL GS108B 8 Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch with Metal Housing & Green Energy Saving Technology

Pros: 8 ports 10/100/1000
Sturdy build
Cheap

Cons: No uplink port - you need a crossover cable with this one to connect it to a router or similar device with a built-in switch. $$

The bundled AC adapter is of the wall wart type that has the plug in the adapter going sideways, and takes up multiple slots in a UPS or power strip. Add a squid. $$

No speed indicator on the LEDs.

Other Thoughts: No mention of jumbo frame support.
No PoE support - must be powered with the wall wart.
The somewhat small 512 kB store-and-forward should be enough as long as you run all 8 ports at the same speed, full duplex. With mixes of 10/100/1000 and heavy large packet UDP use, expect drops.

The LEDs are either bright green, which means "link up and idle", or a less bright green which either means "link up and traffic", or "link down but bleed-through from the adjacent ports' LEDs" - because there's no separator between the LEDs, and GbE packets fly too fast for you to see a flicker, just a dimming, you cannot tell. A tiny piece of plastic between each LED would have helped a lot.

Would I buy again? No, probably not. This is too cheap, even though the aluminum case is nice.
