NETGEAR ProSAFE 16-Port Gigabit Smart Managed Switch (GS716T) - Lifetime Warranty
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Great Switch For A Home User 06/13/2016

This review is from: NETGEAR ProSAFE 16-Port Gigabit Smart Managed Switch (GS716T) - Lifetime Warranty

Pros: Passive cooling ... no fan to make any noise!

16 RJ-45 ports and 2 SFP ports

LEDs are not excessively bright even in a totally dark room

VLAN & LAG support with very flexible port configuration options

Smart WEB interface with configuration options very similar to other NetGear ProSafe switches.

No "wall wart" power plug or "power brick" because the AC power cord plugs into the back of the chassis.

Rack-mount "ears" are included along with a bag of screws and 4 rubber stick-on "feet".

Lifetime warranty

Cons: No PoE support, but that is the tradeoff for having such a quiet switch.

No power switch or visible fuse holder, but those items are just more "point of failures" for a device with a lifetime warranty. So call them tradeoffs also.

No TELNET (who still uses that?) or SSH support. Also, no external Console port. If those features are important to you, look elsewhere.

Front panel RJ-45 ports are closely placed horizontally in 2 rows of 8 with the RJ-45 clips on opposite sides so the clips don't interfere, but if you use Ethernet cables with thick "boots" over the RJ-45 plugs or you have "manual dexterity issues", you might encounter problems.

Other Thoughts: There are so many configuration options within the WEB menus that I always caution: "If you don't know what it does, or you don't know how to configure it correctly, you probably should not change it."

This is my second switch. I bought this one to support a test lab setup, but I don't have a 19-inch rack to test out the rack "ears" or accuracy of the apparent 1U size of this switch.

I bought my first one over a year ago and it's still working great. I would definitely consider buying another if I need it.

Incipio SA-369 Translucent Mercury Frequency Case for Samsung Galaxy S4
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fits my Samsung galaxy S4 nicely.

Case does not have "silky smooth" feel to it; there is a very slight texture.

Cons: Buttons are more difficult to press than without the case.

Other Thoughts: Shipping was slower than expected. Tracking shows it "sat motionless" in a shipper's warehouse within 40 miles of my home for 24+ hours before being delivered.

ASUS Transformer Book T100 - Intel Z3775 Quad Core 2 GB DDR3 RAM 64 GB SSD + 500 GB HD 10.1
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - 500GB 5400rpm Hitachi HDD in my keyboard dock
- HDD location in dock might support SSD swap-in
- USB 3.0 port in keyboard dock
- Easily detachable keyboard
- Power connector located in tablet portion, not in the dock
- SDXC slot in tablet portion does support 64GB SDXC cards
- Online activation was a hassle (typical of M$)

Cons: - Windows 8.1 with BING
- No hopes of upgrading to Windows 8.1 Pro due to MS
- Cheesy feel in touchpad and buttons
- 2GB of RAM

Some of the ASUS "extras" (WebStorage for one) need to be turned off since Windows complains about them impacting performance.

Windows setup wants to create a Windows account for you. Look carefully for the wording to "continue without creating an account".

Touchpad can be overly sensitive, unlike a Synaptics pad. Change the Mouse settings as much as you can to "de-sensitize" it.

The included HDD was date-coded as AUG 2014. Year-old parts, really?

Other Thoughts: It is a tablet so expect the screen to pickup fingerprints. They easily wipe off with a soft cotton cloth like a hankerchief.

Don't forget to charge the tablet FULLY (up to 8 hours) before running without the power cable. There is a short booklet inside the box that says exactly that. I found the tablet needed to charge for about 3 hours before it was really useful on the power cable.

Search online for instructions on backing up the onboard recovery partition (kn the EMMC storage no less) to an external USB key. It is well worth doing that step. An 8GB USB key should be adequate.

3 'eggs' mostly because of the feel of the keyboard and touchpad. The OS seems properly integrated with the hardware. An external USB-to-Ethernet dongle (SIIG USB 3.0 with ASIX chipset) was easily recognized and used for loading Windows Updates (about 1GB of updates in my case).
