    I replaced the Netgear GS105 v4 with the Netgear S8000 and my issues of having to reboot the switch at least 2x a month to reconnect to the internet is now resolved!

    Device was working fine for a few months but now device will no longer support Gig speed internet speeds. When installed I was getting 960MB download speeds. Now device only gets 60MB downloads. This is just a overpriced paperweight now. Should have known better, netgear products always crap out. Don't waste your money on this overpriced junk.

    This switch was perfect. It allowed us to acquire more Ethernet plugins so that our entire family could better manage our busy summer lives gaming, streaming, and just plain 'ole mega multi tasking on our internet. We also have a great router - the new NETGEAR X10. Using is for several months now since it was released for sale. FANTASTIC. It allows us to use the max from our Xfinity/Comcast internet service and incredible speeds for all 3 levels of our house.

    Solid Metal Build and Good GUI Configuration

    I bought this at another online retailer but thought I'd give my 2 cents anyway. I had multiple devices in my entertainment centre some of which connected wirelessly. This included: 1. Sony Android TV 2. PS4 3. XBOX One S 4. DROBO 5N 5. Apple TV 4 6. Sonos Playbar/Sub/2 x Play One's (5.1 setup) 7. 4k DVR/Cable Box (receives signal via ethernet) 8. Router Even though I have gigabit fibre optic internet in my home I noticed that some of the devices such as the Apple TV/Android TV and game consoles didn't perform at their best. They weren't getting the best speeds via a wireless connection. My router didn't have enough ethernet ports to wire everything so I decided to buy this switch. It has dramatically sped up all devices, simplified my setup and freed up the wireless spectrum in the home. The switch itself is a solid piece of metal with some heft to it. It feels like a high quality product. The configuration GUI for the switch is also excellent and simple to use and setup. Each port on the switch can connect at a maximum of 1 Gigabit and each port operates independently meaning even if you connect a device that maxes out at a 100 Megabits it will not slow down other Gigabit enabled devices to the slower speed. All in all the device is worth the premium over the standard 8 port switch. P.S. Make sure to update the firmware when you first set it up and use quality CAT 6 ethernet cables.
