The eight-port desktop GS108E, the 16-port desktop GS116E and the rack-mounted 24-port JGS524E all offer Gigabit Ethernet, ten times the speed of Fast Ethernet. The eight-port desktop GS108PE is the first in the ProSafe Plus Switch family to provide Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) for supporting devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, security cameras and remote switches without the need for separate electric lines.
Works great! Plugged it in and all's good. Got my rebate credit card as advertised. Smooth as silk. I like how the lights show you when you are doing gb data transfer. Did a lot of looking around for this and found this was the best price for a gb switch. The size was also a consideration - I didnt want a rack sized switch - this fits well in the corner of a desk.
