From the Manufacturer

Now you can have a powerful, high-speed network on a small scale. Netgear's GS116 Gigabit Ethernet Switch lets you build a system that provides a full, dedicated 1000 Mbps connections so you can move very large files across your network instantly. The standards-based GS116 helps to protect your existing and future network infrastructure investments by painlessly integrating other 10, 100, and 1000 Mbps devices.

This potent switch is ideal for workgroups or quickly upgrading workstations to full Gigabit speed, plus it's packed with ease-of-use features to simplify your workday experience. Its compact design fits neatly into small work spaces and, since it's self-cooling without a fan, it runs silently and unobtrusively.

The switch is, chiefly:

Power-packed. Features 16 high-speed, auto-switching 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet connections. And because Copper Gigabit Ethernet is a full duplex standard, you can get up to 2000 Mbps on each port.

Versatile. Integrates 10, 100, and 1000 Mbps devices on the same network and will honor Layer 2 802.1p traffic priority tags. Every port automatically senses the right speed and full/half duplex mode, while Auto Uplink technology automatically adjusts for straight-through or crossover cables.

Accommodating. LEDs embedded in each of the 16 RJ-45 jacks make for easy monitoring. Space-saving dimensions are ideal for desktop or wall mounting in home, small office, workgroups, departments and conference room environments. Its durable metal case has no fan for silent operation. Compatible with either PC, Macintosh, UNIX, or Linux operating systems.

Solid. Providing plug-&-play simplicity with exceptional performance and reliability, the GS116 is a cost effective solution for your growing network. This switch is made to last and Netgear backs it with a solid warranty: switch: 5 years, power supply: 2 years.

What's in the Box
A 16-port gigabit switch, a wall-mount kit, an AC adapter, an installation guide, and a warranty/support information card.

I haven't unplugged this switch since I plugged it in for the first time 2.5 years ago and it hasn't failed or given me a single problem in that time. I'd forgotten about it until I saw my amazon purchase history and realized that it has been this long since I had bought this switch.

I wish I could say the same thing about my other networking hardware.

Enjoy,

HASH(0x9a8328b8) out of 5 stars Excellent product, with only one minor flaw. Feb. 26 2007
By Jeremy Chadwick - Published on Amazon.com

If you're looking for an affordable gigabit switch that doesn't suffer from strange auto-negotiation (speed/duplex) problems, this switch is for you.

This product is easily superior to the Netgear GS605, which may appear identical in functionality, but in actuality is not. The GS605 behaves very badly when it comes to speed and duplex auto-negotiation, resulting in incorrect speed being negotiated with Marvell, some nVidia, and some Broadcom PHYs. The GS105 does not suffer from these problems, proving the hardware in the GS105 differs from that of the GS605.

The GS105 also has an incredibly small AC adapter; it's no where near "brick" size. However, on a power strip that has AC outlets next to one another (horizontal, not vertical), this product will probably block the AC outlet next to the one you install it in. This won't happen with vertically-oriented power strips. Just a FYI...

The reason I ranked this product 4/5 stars is because of temperature -- the GS105 runs incredibly warm (borderline hot) for such a small device. Other users have reported the same issue. It's a minor drawback, but is worth noting for others who may wonder the same question.

If the temperature is a big concern, consider purchasing a Hawking Technologies HGS5T, which is identical in functionality to this product, runs much cooler, but has a larger footprint, and a "brick" AC adapter.

HASH(0x9a832ae0) out of 5 stars IT'S SMALL! Aug. 24 2007
By Cholla Boy - Published on Amazon.com

I think this was the smallest gig switch I could find, so I bought it. I've owned several other Netgear switches and have really liked them. This one is no different - works as advertised straight out of the box, although a bit warm as many have mentioned (a Netgear feature). All ports are on one side, and I like the fact that it has mounting holes and hardware that permit you to hang it out of sight so all that cable mess can stay off the top of the desk. Mounted with the ports facing down, all cables come up into the box neatly so I didn't experience any cabling issues as some have mentioned. Two thumbs up!

HASH(0x9a832d44) out of 5 stars SAVE YOUR RECEIPT! July 13 2015
By Ask Althea - Published on Amazon.com
This switch is designed to fail. Period. Several of ours failed. Instead of bothering with the steps below or an RMA and waiting for replacements, we went with Cisco/Linksys. Switch prices are now so low that we can't be bothered with Netgear's bad design and poor QC.

Unless you've got the tools, there are better switches out there designed to last without all of the folderol below. But, for the handy and prepared, this switch can be resuscitated over and over. Read on...

In looking at the reviews, it seems that Netgear has not fixed the fundamental flaw on this switch's mainboard since ver 1. I'm seeing in reviews that ver 3's are still failing. What's the built in obsolescence of this switch for the unsuspecting consumer? There are two capacitors on the mainboard, that for whatever reasons, FAIL FAIL FAIL.

Don't believe it? Do a Google search for Netgear GS 108 and blinking lights (of death). You'll find all sorts of posts about how to identify the bad capacitors, remove them, buy replacements at Radio Shack and then, yep, solder them back on to the board. Here's a link to a great step by step to repair this switch because it will fail. doubleu.doubleu.doubleu.codeproject.com/Articles/204922/Netgear-GS-Blinking-Link-LEDs-Can-we-fix-it-Y

Unless you have a) a soldering iron, b) the know how to use it or c) someone handy at home, skip this switch and look at either Cisco or LInksys. Shame on Netgear for still selling this switch without fixing its mainboard.

HASH(0x9a832cc0) out of 5 stars Performed as Promised May 15 2008
By Dan M. Beadle - Published on Amazon.com

This is a boring category - especially for a small business with only moderate networking requirements.

I needed a short depth form factor to fit into a rack mount system. This device fit.

I wanted 1 GBPS to maximize desktop to NAS backup. This unit delivered. I can max out the link using Norton Ghost to DLink NAS from my Dell desktop. There was no performance degradation from adding 100MB and 10MB devices to the switch (there isn't a lot of traffic on the network).

So, it simply delivered on all needs.

HASH(0x9a8442d0) out of 5 stars Works well, but noisy March 12 2010
By Henry Ferlauto III - Published on Amazon.com

Here's my story. I used to have (note past tense) pretty much all Linksys gear in my home. Router, switches, print servers, etc. Over a half-dozen devices because our condo is wired like an office with network drops everywhere.

All of a sudden in the span of about 6 months, one-by-one most of the devices just died. They had power, but simply would not pass network traffic. I wrote to Linksys and basically said, "Here's my situation, meet me half-way, do something, anything to keep my business." They never replied. So I began a quest to look into a new switch for my home office. I decided I wanted a 16 port model because I might max out an 8 port unit.

I noticed that the "ProSafe" line from Netgear comes with a lifetime warranty and 24/7 technical support (although how much support can one need for an auto-sensing switch, assuming it's actually working.) So I gravitated toward that line of products. Then looking at the comparison charts I was trying to determine the difference between the mid-level "GS" series and their top-of-the-line "JGS" series switches.

There is only one: The JGS models have a built-in power supply. Meaning, no "brick," just a standard 3-prong power cord.

Sold!

My only complaint (and it is significant): The little fan inside this monster is quite noisy. Almost as loud a standard desktop PC, which uses a much larger power supply and fan. Mind you it does not sound "cheap." It sounds like a quality fan and power supply. It quite simply needs a little better ventilation and Netgear needs to invest that whopping extra 2 bucks on a higher grade fan that it is truly whisper quiet.

So in summary, fine for a network closet or an open area with a few people an other things that make modest constant noise, but think about it a bit if it will be in a "quiet" office setting. With quieter operation, it would easily earn 5 stars in my book.
