This review is from: NETGEAR 8 Port Gigabit Business-Class Desktop Switch - Lifetime Warranty (GS108)
Pros: Low cost / high performance / HIGH reliability / good looks / metal case / LIFETIME warranty!
I have 40 - 50 of these in the field at various clients in various industries in various conditions and have never had one fail or even need to be rebooted, ever!
If you read a review saying that these have any problems remember two things.
1. People generally only take the time to complain when there is a problem so for every negative review there are hundreds if not thousands of positive experiences.
2. It has a lifetime warranty!
Other Thoughts: I normally don't write reviews but I was purchasing another one of these switches for a client and saw on the side of the web page that there was a 1 star review saying that this switch was guaranteed to fail on you in a year. That statement is rubbish and I writing this review to offset that garbage, besides it has a LIFETIME warranty!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Was on sale, attractive heat spreaders and passes Memtest
Cons: Caused crashes and system instability in a brand new PC with Asus MB and Intel i3. Replaced with my usual brand RAM of the same specifications and the system has been happy since.
Other Thoughts: Not sure why it will pass Memtest 4.2 for hours on end in the same system that it crashes under windows. Just goes to show that synthetic tests can never duplicate the real world.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: These are the same great Hitachi drives that I have used for dozens of RAID 1 small business server builds.
High reliability (for a consumer 3.5" drive)
High performance (for a consumer 7200K drive)
Cons: Toshiba wasn't nice enough to market these as HGST technology.
Other Thoughts: Western Digital had to sign over the 3.5" business it acquired from Hitachi to Toshiba to appease the FTC. Now we have the joy of finding these good drives through a maze of name switches.READ FULL REVIEW
