3 out of 5 eggs Good unit, on 3rd power supply 09/18/2011

This review is from: NETGEAR 16 Port Gigabit Business-Class Desktop Switch - Lifetime Warranty (GS116)

Pros:

- Actual hardware unit is near bulletproof
- Good speed
- 16 ports; room to grow

Cons:

- You WILL have power supply issues

Other Thoughts:

I have two of these GS116s and then a smaller, 8-port GS108 in the bedroom. I am now trying to get my second power supply unit for one of the GS116's replaced in the second 6-month period. I have owned these GS116's for a couple years, but the newer of the two had an obviously cheaper power supply wall wart from the older one (thinner wire, and runs at 0.7 amps, whereas the older, more reliable power supply runs at 0.6 amps - for the exact same switch).

What has happened twice now is that I'll hear this high-pitched sound of air rushing, kinda like a slow leak on a bike tire. Inevitably it's the wall wart hissing and indicates that the thing (might be?) ready to explode.

Netgear, PLEASE get the power supply issues sorted out with the ProSafe line! I've used ProSafe products many times in the past decade, and they have all been excellent until the past 3-4 years when it seems they switched to garbage power supplies, and then they'll charge you ~$30 to replace PSU.
