1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing - Netgear aint what it used to be... :-(, September 29, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: NETGEAR GS108NA ProSafe 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Desktop Switch (Personal Computers)
I used to swear by Netgear during my years of corporate IT servitude, but it seems that they've really abandoned any quality goals when it comes to their consumer grade equipment. This is the third (and last) piece of almost brand new Netgear equipment that is sitting in my parts closet unused.

Every couple of hours it will disconnect all the users/devices attached to it. This disconnect would last anywhere from 15 seconds to a minute or more. Definitely puts a kink in large file transfers, video streaming and online gaming.

I got a D-Link gigabit switch to replace it and couldn't be happier. D-Link DGS-2208 8-Port 10/100/1000 Desktop Switch I must admit I prefer the build and look of the Netgear (it's solid and the rear facing LEDs are great) as opposed to the D-Link's plasticky lightness, but it's all about performance, not looks now, isn't it?
