    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 replaced a standard non managed switch when I upgraded to an Netgear Orbi AC300 router from a Netgear Nighthawk. The ease of setup to establish priorities and speed are fantastic.

    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!

    The hub is great to use with the Nighthawk router. I don't see any loss of speed.

    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.

    This switch did everything except connect the cables for me. It works well and I believe increased my speed on a few devices.

    Needed more hard wired connections than my company based modem/router combo provided. It works perfectly for my setup and it opens up my bandwidth to get true gigabit speeds.

    This switch maybe a little pricey but it's built like a tank and is basically just plug and play straight out of the box. I uplinked from my home network NETGEAR - 16-Port GS116NA switch to use this strictly for gaming and it works great. Speeds are constant and always on par with what I'm supposed to be getting from ISP.
