    This is a great device you'd use for expanding the ports on your router. It comes with easy to use software to manage your connections and is a slick design

    Bought this to expand the number of network ports available on my router. Works like a charm with great speeds and low latency. Great interface to monitor your connections. Two ports that support NIC teaming to the router to ensure there is plenty bandwidth.

    Most ports worked well

    I'll start off by saying I had 2 bad ports so I had to return it. The switch did work well on the ports that actually worked. I liked being able to access the switch to configure the ports manually. But like I stated, it had 2 bad ports. Used to be a big netgear fan but quality has not been good lately with most of their products.

    The product is easy to setup and has the ability to set priority to ports for gaming and streaming. Do not forget to set the password!

    I usually use my X-BOX to play live games as part of a Team. This switch allowed me to prioritize my ports for speed!

    This is overkill for my purpose, which was to give me additional ports for my smart home toys. Solved my connectivity and lack of available ports issues.

    Needed to add some wired speed as wireless network got too slow as I added devices. Very happy with the speed this has for netflix on TV, apple TV, and giving extra ports for all things in my main TV room.

    Needed a replacement switch. The preconfigured ports for gaming and streaming seemed like a nice touch. I'm happy with it.

    It is definitely the best switch I have ever had. It is extremely easy to setup and prioritize traffic though the different ports. It has the 8 ports but of course just like any other switch one is used as an up-link.

    Not bad for the price

    Was on sale for $79 which was not bad. Looks cool and can be configured for QOS for each port. Rather than that not sure if there is any better than other Netgear switches.

    Really like this switch, it's built well (metal vs. plastic), very easy to login to and configure, it looks sharp. I like the the power port and ethernet ports are all in the BACK, this makes it nice sitting on the desk, the throughput of this switch is great and I actually can tell a difference with my network performance after installing this. My one complaint is I wish the switch had an internal power supply versus a DC Jack and power brick. That would have made it pretty perfect!

    Unit looks great and functions just as I expected. Hard wire all your Ethernet cables without losing speed with this expansion hub. No more lag. I only gave it 4 stars cause I haven't used all the ports yet but so far working great.

    Huge switch upgrade

    Replace an older non-managed 10/100/1000 switch and the impact has been tremendous. Hadn't anticipated a real change in the download speeds but was presently surprised to see how much throughput I wasn't getting. The additional investment of this "managed" switch was well worth the price. Being able to aggregate ports and prioritize ports was also a nice feature at the switch level.

    For a small 8 port switch, this is the best! Works great with the X10 Router. They were made for each other! beautiful little thing! Sturdy and just fantastic!

    I use this switch in my office because my current 5 port switch was full and I needed room for expansion. This switch has a user interface which can be used to prioritize certain ports which works good for me. I don't need my laser printer having priority over my media computer or PC. The set up was simple and I haven't had to do anything to it since it just continues to work. I also like the look and I keep it on top of my desk now instead of my old switch which was hidden behind the desk.

    I bought this switch to support my whole home wired network. I keep it locked up inside of a multimedia cabinet in my basement and so far it runs all of my wired devices like a champ. The switch is a sturdy metal construction and weighed a lot more than I expected. It also delivers on all of it's little advantages - the dedicated streaming port does not cause delays or loading times and the gaming port keeps a steady 2.5 MB/s upload stream. Very happy with this purchase. Definitely recommend and would buy again!

    This works awesome. I'm in a new home and of course they run all ethernet cables to one place. In the darkness of your basement. I have the nighthawk xp500 router and the netgear 1gig modem. It's in my room and it plugs into the wall and goes downstairs to the switch. It then goes to every room in the house. No errors, no glitches, it works great for how my setup is.
