- Cheap when price matched
- Good Quality
- Good speed
- None as of Yet
I'm using this in conjuntion with cat6 550mhz cables. Running 25ft from my router downstairs up to the switch upstairs.

Using 7ft cat6 550mhz cables from the switch to the computers.

Everything seems to run fine.

No-brainer setup, nice design, Gigabit, just works
Needed a switch to prevent running 3 cables 30' through a wall into another room. This is connected to a Netgear WND4500 router, and has a desktop PC, multifunction printer, and a powerline ethernet adapter attached. Very quickly populated 4 of the 5 ports, so this was the 'right sized' switch for our needs. Setup couldn't be easier - things don't get more plug-and-play than this!

I had considered a significantly more expensive managed switch, but couldn't justify the added cost for control I don't really need and would probably never (or rarely) use.

If you're looking for simple Gigabit switch, you won't be disappointed in this one.

Solid Netgear switch. Has little feet so the switch stands vertically rather than lying it down
It's white
I've used Netgear stuff in the past and have been happy with its performance. I needed a simple gigabit switch to replace an aging SMC and decided to give this a shot. It works well.

Experience: 1 Years
- Runs cool
- Fast
- Have never had to reset it once
- None.
This thing is solid. I haven't had to reset it once. Good for streaming 1080p to the PS3 from the PC.

Works well
Got it to go behind my linksys and voip routers. works well no complaints at all. Had a competitors product which really had crappy throughput but this is doing quite well.

Experience: 1 Years
Great features for the price. Totally plug and play.
Runs VERY hot.
This switch ran absolutely flawlessly for the first 10 months. It ran cool and I never had to reset it for any reason. About two months ago, I started getting dropped connection errors which I isolated to the switch. It was now running quite hot and some ports wouldn't light up even with a cable plugged in. I should've checked the warranty info (lifetime) but my solution was to stick an old Pentium heatsink on the chip and run a power line for the fan from my computer. It's not pretty or totally silent anymore but it does work 100% again.

-Gigabit Switch
-Indication LED clearly represents the speed
-Power Conservation features
-Runs cool all the time
This unit runs cool all the time. The power saving feature is a plus. The auto-gigabit switch worked nicely in my LAN. Would recommend this to anyone. File transfer speed can go up to 90MB/s.

Experience: 2 Months

Stable and fast
The "feet" take up too much space
Fast, stable, and very reasonably priced. Haven't had to reset it all. Runs very cool (energy-saving design) and has an efficient AC adaptor.

Experience: 3 Months
 Verified Owner
good price/performance ratio
nice front bezel as opposed to plain leds
made of plastic
easily tips over
runs slightly warm
Its a pretty good switch - haven't had any problems with it. Transfer rates aren't hitting the maximum that 1Gb allows for but hard to prove whether its software or nic or indeed the switch. Nothing too spectacular - no management, no QOS but for simple home network, it will do the job.

Experience: 3 Months

Compact, easy to setup, cheap.
This unit is truly plug-and-play. No special instructions for setup and different colour lights for speed and numbers for the ports.
