|NETGEAR’ s GS608 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Switch connects your network with the dual advantages of performance and convenience. As a fast, auto-switching Ethernet connection, the GS608 integrates both Fast Ethernet and Gigabit devices into your network—supporting both Windows and Macintosh platforms at speeds up to 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet. Every port automatically senses the right speed and full/half duplex mode, while dual-color LEDs make it easy to monitor link, speed and activity. Auto Uplink™ technology adjusts for either of the two common kinds of cables; and with its embedded Plug-and-Play technology, you simply turn it on and it works. All this in NETGEAR’s compact signature design, plus a convenient stand for vertical positioning.|
Customer Reviews of NETGEAR GS608 8 Port Gigabit Desktop Switch
This item slows the network3/13/2012
This item is faulty and runs very slow. It doesn't even go 10Mb let alone 1 Gb. No wonder Netgear no longer sells it.
Great price and fast shipping!!!9/10/2010
Great price and received it very fast!!!! Would buy again from Buy.com!
I am highly pleased with this product. Not only was this the cheapest option I found (by a reputable company), it was really simple to setup. Netgear makes some good products that are professional looking and this one is no exception. The rebate option was really easy to use, and I just received an auto response in my email that my rebate is on its way to me. It has not skipped a beat on my home network yet and it has been running strong for three weeks. The performance is smooth, the ease of use is great (it is just a switch), the value is wonderful, and overall, I am very satisfied.
Very Good Network Upgrade11/29/2007
I purchased the Netgear NETGEAR 8-Port Gigabit 10/100/1000 switch in order to get faster transfers on my network. To enable this, I also purchased the Netgear WNR854T Gigabit wireless (Pre-N) router. I not only saw the wired transfer speeds increase up to spec, but also the wireless speed and range increased dramatically. This wireless speed increase was to laptops with "G" cards installed. On the wired side, the quality of my two VOIP lines (Vonage) have improved significantly, also. I have been very pleased.
Not much to say, its just a switch. But, it was simple to setup, and has worked fine from day one.
Netgear Gigabit Switch Excellent5/7/2007
The Netgear gigabit switch installed perfectly with no problems at all. It establishes connections much faster than my old switch. Data transfer is faster as well. This was well worth upgrading to.
Nice, inexpensive gigabit switch12/22/2006
Compared to other inexpensive 5-port and 8-port gigabit ethernet switches out there, this one looks great, and has a small, light and energy-efficient switching-mode power supply (a nice touch). It is trivial to set up (it's an unmanaged switch... there's nothing to configure). It has legs that can be attached at either end, so you can have it standing on edge with the cables facing either way. It does NOT have mounting holes on the bottom, so it can not be attached to a surface with screws, like most other small switches, firewalls, modems etc. As for performance, it works great for me.
Plug and Go9/29/2006
I've had this switch for about 2 weeks, and it works great. It is very easy to use. I just plugged from my router to this switch, and then plugged the rest of my networked devices(Harddrive, printer share, and 2 other computers). I also notice a significant increase in file transfer speed. Recommended!
