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.
Customer Reviews of NETGEAR GS116E ProSafe® Plus Switch 16-Port Gigabit Ethernet
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.
