Features    [ Edit | History ]

Now you can have a powerful, high-speed network on a small scale. NETGEAR's GS108 Gigabit Ethernet Switch lets you build a system that provides a full, dedicated 1000, 100, or 10 Mbps connection so you can move very large files across your network instantly. The GS108 also lets you painlessly integrate 10, 100, and 1000 Mbps devices. This potent switch is packed with ease-of-use features to simplify your workday experience. It's compact design fits neatly into small work spaces and, since it's self-cooling without a fan, it runs silently and unobtrusively.

- Cheap
- At a glance lights (sucker for lights)
- feels very tough
- has some weight to it which stops it from getting dragged around from the weight of cords.
- you can find cheaper 8 port 1 gig switches
Using this along with a 24 port netgear to service a far away bedroom needing multiple ports. Rock solid feeel to it - best made 8 port switch i have ever owned will buy another when I need it.

Experience: 5 Months

Works fine and stable
Works perfectly for a home network and office network.
Nice built quality !

- Fast, easy to setup
- Reliable, no issues
- Lifetime warranty
- None so far
I bought this to replace another netgear switch and immediately saw increases in read/write speeds to my synology NAS. Good, fast, and cheap switch.

Experience: 3 Years
Great when it works, non blocking full duplex gigabit switch with jumbo frame support and no fan
Only lasts about 2 or 3 years
Had one of these and one GS116, this one lasted about 2 years and the 116 maybe 2 1/2 or 3 years, they just stop working one day. Ended up losing some data thanks to windows delayed write failures - lucky I make daily backups!

No power supply problems though, and don't send your power supply in when you RMA it - Netgear will send you another one and this way you end up with a spare.

When they work they're great, very fast, quiet, they do run a little warm though.

Would have given it 2 stars but since I bought it so long ago the NCIX review system would not let me

Experience: 7 Months
- Simple to set up
- Auto Uplink (auto crossover detection)
- Each jack has LEDS to indicate 10M 100M and 1000M connection and activity
- Nice rebate (worked for me)
- No network management (not at this price!), or web admin interface, so look to higher priced switches for QOS or other management functions
- No more I can think of
I wanted a simple switch that did what it was supposed to. Easy to install, reliable. What else could I ask for? Would buy this model again. It's much smaller and better built that the older Netgear hubs and switches.

a little bit heavy but that can also be good
Overall it works great. it was very simple to setup and replaced my older 5 port switch. It is more reliable and throughput is definitely better than what i used to get before.

Experience: 2 Months

Stable and simple
100% stable and integrates into pretty much any network seamlessly. Not much else to say.

Lifetime warranty, metal case.
Since this is just a switch, there's not a great deal to say about it, but this one is maybe a bit better than others in the same class of device, for a few reasons. Here's some of the good things about this switch:

- Lifetime warranty.... doesn't get any better than that!
- Metal case, which means it'll take a few knocks without damage to the business end of this device.
- Each port has two lights, to indicate the speed of the connection, and show activity.
- Has holes for wall mounting, which are better than most, i.e. they have a small piece of spring steel in them, so that the screw you use to mount them doesn't have to be screwed into the wall to the EXACT depth to be able to securely mount this switch.... a rather small thing, but shows attention to detail.
- Automatically detects, and correctly uses, a regular ethernet cable or a crossover cable.
- And last, but certainly not least, this switch just plain works, i.e. I plugged in the power, plugged in the appropriate network cables, and all connections worked, and have been working fine since I started using this device.

status lights and connectors on same side
built like a tank
your rebate request will get rejected and they won't answer the phone.
This is a very good switch that supports Jumbo packets with a lifetime warranty.
DON'T EXPECT the rebate, they have denied both of my rebates claiming receipt was not included but I have a photo copy to prove I sent it, weasels.

Nice little gigabit switch
Lights attached to ports, get semi-covered
For a small profile 8 port gigabit switch, it's pretty good.
Mounting holes make for a switch that doesn't get pulled around by the cables.
Sturdy metal box is small and doesn't have stupid plastic protrusions seen on so many consumer switches making them non-rectangular.
LEDs for each port are built into the port making them get covered up slightly when a cable is plugged into the port. Could use with a bit of distance between the LED and the plug to be able to better see the LEDs from a distance.
4 Stars because it has a MIR instead of an IR.
