My company distributes these switches to our clients and have issues out more then 50 over the last year. having only 1 fail due to power issues in the location (also lost 2 computers at the same time). the witch is a solid performer and it is the case for both version 1 and 2 of the hardware, the only real difference i see is the size of the switch as version 2 is 40% smaller. i would recommend this switch to anyone who needs a fast network that is reliable.
The picture showed an older model. The one I received was the exact one shown on Netgear's site. The case is metal and heavy, which is good as it won't be easily shifted. There're lots of options and configuration one can play with. With the original firmware, the device was stuck and needed a reboot almost daily after VLAN & QoS where enabled. But after upgrading it to the latest firmware, its been running continuously since then. IMO its a great product for the price.
I moved up to the GS108T-200NAS from an unmanaged D-Link DGS-1008D switch which was giving me problems with auto-negotiation in a mixed 1000mbps / 100mbps media streaming environment (lol, even using a D-Link NAS, and their tech support even suggested that it sounded like an incompatibility among their own products, but left me high and dry after making that conclusion....tsk, tsk D-Link).
In any event, This Netgear smart switch is very configurable, and simply offers customizations not otherwise seen in an unmanaged switch (most of which I won't need for my applications, but it's nice knowing they're available for down the line). Ability to set flow & QoS for each port eliminated the issues I was having with the unmanaged D-Link.PoE is available on port 1 (not seen on the 100NAS version).
