Categories > Switches > Netgear Inc. > NETGEAR ProSAFE GS748T V5 48-Port Gigabit Smart Switch 10/100/1000Mbps

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Good basic switch
Pros: Inexpensive for a 48 port Gigabit switch with SFP ports. I have purchased a few of these units and they have been reliable.
Cons: None for me.
Other Thoughts: I like the Netgear GS748T and TP smart switches. I use them in small business networks where an unmanaged switch will suffice, but where the smart GUI and VLAN support might come in handy down the road. I've purchased 6 or 7 over the past 5 years and have had no issues with them at all.

Categories > Switches > TRENDnet > TRENDnet TEG-S81g Unmanaged 8-Port Gigabit GREENnet Switch

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5
Pros: Just plugged it in and it worked. Previously used a 4-port Trendnet gigabit switch and it was OK but I needed more ports (leave those computers alone at night and they multiply). The pleasant surprise with this switch is that it seems much faster than the 4-port. That's subjective because I didn't want to swap the 4-port back in to test it.

I don't usually take the time to write reviews but this switch is impressive enough that I made time to do it. Highly recommended as an easy-to-use, good performing switch.
Cons: None really. The box is a little lightweight so you have to be careful with cable routing so that it doesn't pull the switch off or whatever you have it perched on. Not really a con - just something to be aware of.

Categories > Switches > TP-LINK > TP-LINK TL-SG105E 5-Port Gigabit Easy Smart Switch with 5 10/100/1000 Mbps RJ45 Ports, MTU/Port/Tag-Based VLAN, QoS and IGMP

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Great Switch!
Pros: Nice looking switch. Solid build that feels very sturdy. Small, and makes very good utilization of it's space. Lights all work.

Installation was easy, but you will want to follow the instructions in order to know how to connect to it with the software. -see other thoughts on install.

Connect an ethernet cable from your router or model to the switch. (this takes up one port, so if you need more than 4 ports you should get the larger switch)

The software should find your new switch. You will want to connect to it and configure the IP to one you wish to use, or one within your current gateway address.

Once you login to the switch with the default credentials you can access many features that will give you some advanced functionality. You can set this to DHCP, You can enable / disable ports, set custom configurations, Port Mirror, setup a Vlan, Port based QOS, bandwidth controls as well.

I set this up with some port based QOS and it seemed to work great. So far very happy with this switch.
Cons: The Help section does not have any information embedded, it just links to an online knowledgebase. Not a big con unless you don't have an internet connection when trying to troubleshoot.
Other Thoughts: I had to download the latest software from the TP-Link website as the software would not install on my windows 8 PC from the disc. (Not really a big Con since getting latest version is usually best anyways)

With the 5 Port switch, you really only get 4 additional ports (this is normal). The 8 port would be preferred for me (but I do a lot with PC's!)

Categories > Switches > Netgear Inc. > Netgear ProSafe Plus Switch 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Switch with 4-port PoE

Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 Hardware works but software fails.
Pros: PoE and regular LAN ports work as expected.
Web-based management option if you know the IP address of the device.
Cons: Included software by Netgear to manage device is bloated. It requires installation or 2 third party programs which are required for the main program to run. The included software is Windows only, no Mac or Linux options. After installation from the included CD, the program failed to run. Deleting, reinstalling, downloading the latest versions, repeating this installation process many times and it still failed to run. The switch fortunately has a web-based option which bypasses the useless Windows software.
Other Thoughts: This device runs well if one knows how to setup without the included low-grade SW on the CD. Look for the Mac address on the DHCP client list and your are in business.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Netgear GS-108T
Pros: FINALLY! A product that works as it's suppossed to. I have never given a product five eggs on Newegg; that's about all that needs to be said.
Cons: Absolutely none ... well I wish there were more ports, but fore the money I am not complaining.
Other Thoughts: If you need a eight 1000 GBE switch (for business or home), this is were you start

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Works well
Pros: Works well out of the box. No issues.
Cons: None
Other Thoughts: I only had one wired port int he living room and needed a couple more for additional equipment. Some of it could connect wireless but a wired connection is so much more reliable. This unit did the trick and I never even think about the thing...
