1 out of 5 eggs Not compatible with 2006 Intel iMac NIC 01/05/2010

This review is from: NETGEAR 5 Port Gigabit Business-Class Desktop Switch - Lifetime Warranty (GS105)

Pros: Solid construction, separate lights for 100/1000 connection per port

Cons: Would not negotiate gigabit speed w/ 2006 iMac. I purchased the switch as an upgrade to an older Linksys 10/100 device to get my iMac and PC talking to a new NAS at gigabit speed. The PC with a built in NVIDIA NIC had no problem connecting at gigbit. The iMac with a "Marvell Yukon Gigabit Adapter 88E8053 Singleport Copper SA" NIC refused to auto configure at 1000. Manual configuration just left the connection dead with all possible combinations of settings. Same result booting into XP on the same device. Spent 2 days poking at it until I gave up, trying a D-Link next.

Other Thoughts: Looking at other reviews and some other searches nets one conclusion: Netgear switches are not 100% compatible with other gigabit devices. Lame.
