Strengths: Well Know Brand Name, Built netgear Tough, low price!
This Netgear 5-port gigabit eternet switch is the lowest priced gigabit ethernet switch that i found on the net. There I have previously owned other products by netgear and have never had any issues with them. I believe this product would not be any different. From the few days that I have it setup, i have not ran into any issues, it was really easy to install. great product!

Great Netgear equipment
Strengths: Easy connection, no setup required, quiet
I bought this switch some time back and have been using it without issue. Connecting a new computer is quick and easy. I was even able to daisy chain a second switch I purchased to add additional ports to a room on the other end of the house. A real nice feature for those in similar situations. I would recommend this switch to anyone needing an easy solution to adding additional ports.

Strengths: Well-built, made with a metal case. Very small. Can be wall mounted.
Weakness: I really wished that the lights were on the other side of the box.
I've used these for a while at my work. I like the fact that they are tough and if they drop, they won't break. I've also never once had a problem with them. These are very small, much smaller than the picture shown on pricegrabber...not much wider than the five ports. My only fault is that the lights are on the port side. I wished it were the opposite side, like the LinkSys do. The reason is...

I've used these for a while at my work. I like the fact that they are tough and if they drop, they won't break. I've also never once had a problem with them.
These are very small, much smaller than the picture shown on pricegrabber...not much wider than the five ports.
My only fault is that the lights are on the port side. I wished it were the opposite side, like the LinkSys do. The reason is that everywhere I have placed these, the wires are coming up the back side of the desk, between the desk and a wall. That means that you can't monitor the network without turning this around and pulling on the cables to give enough slack to turn around. Luckily, that isn't needed very often so it really isn't a big deal, just that it would me nice. Also someday I'll get around to wall-mounting them so that won't be an issue anymore.

Strengths: Rugged metal construction, small profile, runs cool for gigabit switch, ease of setup
Weakness: Some may prefer plastic cases with cables in back
The switch does its job. Delivers gigabit speed in a small metal case. The version I received supports jumbo packets, full duplex and auto-uplink. I purchased the GS108 and the GS105 and they both perform well. The switch would be appropriate for business use because of the solid construction.
