Failed After 12 months, replaced and failed again.

Mr Martin C Clay, Amazon
8 December 2014
  • Summary: I'm just looking for an alternative to replace this switch. I have already had one fail and it looks like this one is dying too now. I don't want to bash Netgear stuff it's usually very good. Unfortunately this switch has lasted about 12 months before it starts to throw up problems. Today all lights went orange to denote 100mbit connections. I ran a soeed test on my imac on my 152mbit virgin connection and got 90mbit.

So good I bought another one!

  • Summary: My other switch went down so did a quick search and decided on this one, partly for Prime delivery which came the next day, Saturday. Plugged in switched on and up came the green and orange lights. Green for Gigabit connection. Most of my connections in the living room were however the slower orange light, but that's due to the hardware. I was interested to see that my main gaming computer out in the converted garage was showing up as a slower connection.

No set up, no effort, no problem

  • Summary: This is my third Netgear Gigibit switch. All continue to work faultlessly on a busy office network with Macs, Windows PCs and various Android and iOS tablets. There is little or no effort required - just plug in and they work.

Plug In & Forget

Alpha, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this to replace an older switch. All I had to do was un-box the new Netgear GS608 switch, plug the LAN cables in and finally the power cable and everything worked. I haven't had to touch it since purchase (April 2014).

  • Summary: No more bottlenecks due to the amount of devices I connect to the internet via the Ethernet cable, rather than rely on my ISP router which only has five

Gives up after a year or so

R. W. Underwood "runderwood45", Amazon
20 January 2014
  • Summary: Have always used netgear routers without an issue and for a year or so had no issue with this hub. Plug and play, auto sensing worked fine. Mine is completly populated with printers, hard drives etc. Began to have a periodic connectivity issues which a power off/on seemed to sort out. But recently internet connectivity was really slow and assumed it was my provider.
