    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!

    Not bad of a switch.

    I only bought this because I did not find a suitable switch at my local best buy. they only had a linksys, want to stay away from linksys at the moment. I also have a Nighthawk XR500 so this thing really not needed for the features, I needed extra ports in my gaming media room . I just set to high priority on all ports and connect everything. So far so good connection is great. It's cool looking and built like a truck. I recommend if you do not mind the price, but there are cheaper alternatives.

    It's well built and has a great look, it's mounted in our game room so it looks super cool in our current setup. Although I don't think there are any substantial benefits in terms of speed over the plastic white netgear switch - you're paying for the look and the setting options. The real bummer is there are no wall mounting brackets on this switch but we mounted with high strength velcro and that holds it to the wall securely.

    I purchased this switch to aggregate 2 Ethernet connections from my Nighthawk 8500 router. Unfortunately they aren't compatible with each other. I confirmed this with Netgear tech support. I ended up buying a different Netgear managed switch to accomplish this. I kept this switch anyway and will use it at another location in the future.

    This is a great router. I just don't understand all the modern setting you can make to improve connection on certain equipment. Learning as I go. We have a lot of WiFi and direct connect equipment. Home theatre system plus full stereo and game units plus smart home equipment. No troubles easy hook up.easy to get going and love the ease of access.

    I got this on sale which is why I justified getting this upgrade. I was having packet loss issues while using my Xbox One S /PS4 Pro (both wired connection) so I decided to change my router and use this switch to eliminate packet losses. I no longer have a packet loss issue but I wouldn't recommend this at the MSRP.

    Perfect for expanding ports

    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.

    Installed easily, works great, but directions to put in a password are poor! Does not indicate how/where to go to set password, and link to internet page does not work.

    Bought this to save myself the trouble of running more Ethernet cables through the walls of the house and this thing works like a charm. Would recommend to anyone in a similar situation.

    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.

    Not too much to say here, but it does the job. Lets you hook up many devices without losing any speed. Looks great in the entertainment center too.

    Does what it says. I have problems getting link aggregation to work and the UI is a bit simple for my tastes, but overall solid.

    Nice just wish I could mount it on the wall. no place to do that, so I used industrial Velcro and life is good again.

    This switch is okay but for the small price difference I kinda wish I would have just got a router instead
