Gets the job done.
Bundled with a stand;
Power adaptor is slim-type.
Great home switch;
Full 16gb bandwithd so no bottleneck no matter what you do.
Autodetects 10/100/1000 and Uplink with according colored LEDs.
Bafflingly beautiful when standing upwards;
Marries perfectly with the latests Netgear routers.

Experience: 1 Years
fast gigabit speeds, low power consumpton, high reliability of transmission
incompatible with P8Z68-V Pro motherboard and possibly all Intel(R) 82579V ethernet PHY's
Hi I have had this switch for like a year now , I have 5 or 6 devices connected and it performa

Except... that it was incompatible(tested, confirmed) with my ASUS P8Z68-V Pro board that I recently purchased. This board has the Intel(R) 82579V Gigabit Ethernet PHY and either the ethernet adapter or the switch would cause the system's link to go down and back up about 3-4 times a minute, and result in a roughly 40% packet loss. This switch is *supposed* to be 802.3u and 802.3ab compliant, so I don't know where the incompatibility is coming from. Hopefully NCIX will straighten this out for me since I purchased both devices from them.

Simple to setup, works great. Supports jumbo frame.
No way to wall mount it
Greta little router. Does come with a desktop stand (to make it stand vertically), but no way to mount it to a wall.

Experience: 2 Months
+ Excellent speed
+ Solid Construction
- Big power plug takes 2 power outlets
Tested with jperf and got a solid ~940 mbps speed in both a home and an office network. They could have had a cable come out of the power adapter, instead of having the plug in the whole damn thing in the outlet. Good switch for the price (when on sale).

Experience: 4 Weeks
Reliable, well built
Works perfectly, however, warning, I just received an update  for my rebate that was rejected because the purchase location (here NCIX), was invalid!

Just an update. NCIX went to bat for me and contacted Netgear about this rebate and now they're accepting it. Top notch customer service and great prices is why I continue to shop here :)

Fast connection, Low price
I bought this to complete my current 1gbit infrastructure. It works very well with my home theater setup. Xbox / PS3 / Wii and Free location devices.

-works right out of the box
-looks nice
This is the first switch I've ever bought and I am surely not disappointed. The switch works right out of the box without any software. I hook up all my game systems, my computer and printer to this switch and it works flawlessly. Great product, highly recommended.

Experience: 3 Years
 Verified Owner
Very good price per port
Quiet, no fan
I now have three of these :-)
This switch works fine. It's a good little unmanaged switch.
It has a great price for the number of ports although it feels a bit cheap because of the plastic whereas their GS108 made of metal is more solid.

-Long Power Cable
-Vertical Stands are great
-Lights Identifying Speed of the port
None so far, worked great out of the box!
I got this to use as a local network to transfer at Gbit speeds via Ethernet, what this plugs into is my WRT54GL (flashed with DD-WRT), which connects to my basement router via Client Bridged. What this will allow me to do now is instead of plugging stuff into my WRT54GL 54Mbps ports, I will be able to plug them into my switch and recieve up to 1Gbit speeds. Works great so far, this PC is showing a green light (Gbit) and the router is showing an orange light (100Mbit) and everything is great. For 34$ you can't go wrong! (79.99 on sale for 59.99 but with Mail in Rebate -> 34.99)

Experience: 60 Days

very pleasing looking, does not run hot
Worked right out of the box.

Haven't had an issue with it yet. Using 6 of the ports and
the transfer speed is really fast to all my PCs and the NAS
that is also hanging off of it.
